Marlene Schmitt

Your teacher

Berlin-based Marlene Schmitt is an internationally trained yoga teacher with over two decades of bodywork experience. It is her vision to share yoga in an undogmatic and open way accessible to all.

In 2017 she co-founded Yoga on the Move, a yoga collective offering yoga studio classes, pop-up events, online courses, and teacher trainings.

For Marlene, sharing yoga means creating a space where everyone is allowed to simply BE, in the here and now, connected to body and mind through breath. With her powerful and creative Vinyasa sequences, she allows us to dive into deeper layers of consciousness, to expand our body-mind connection and to grow beyond habitual thought patterns and beliefs.

After guiding many retreats across Europe she is really looking forward to be back at Kea to share her passion & gratitude to Yoga with you and guide you in your personal journey.
