Holiday Facilitators: Marina White Raven

skill, experience, warmth

Biography

Marina White Raven is a yoga teacher, socially engaged artist, creative facilitator, clown teacher and creative life coach; she has performed and presented workshops for professionals, creatives and athletes internationally. With over 25 years experience delivering creative wellbeing programmes for groups and teams with complex needs, she brings a wealth of knowledge and ability and is exceptionally skilled at supporting high performing individuals, whilst also empowering the less privileged and socially excluded members of society.

Marina encourages people to move beyond pain and resistance, towards authentic whole hearted, expressive living. Her teaching establishes stability and suppleness in the body and mind and promotes a greater sense of integration, resilience and joy.  Marina is keen to share practical tools and advice for healthy habit formation, simple ways to easily incorporate Yoga into busy lifestyles and how to kick start a daily practice.

An established teacher with a unique style Marina communicates the ancient teachings of yoga with her own creative flair; bodywork, breath, meditation and movement become an integrated weave of practices that are accessible and inclusive.

Marina trained for 3 years with the British Wheel of Yoga under the guidance of Derek Thorne and following advaita vedanta (non-duality) through the teachings of Ramana Maharshi. She is also a qualified Yoga4Health instructor. Further studies include Theravada Buddhism, Relational Gestalt, Thai yoga massage, Reiki gendai and Butoh dance.

Marina has performed and taught all over the world, in person and online; generating transformative artworks and experiences for a wide range of people. She most recently toured Mexico with her internationally renowned performance ritual: ‘Practice for my Deathbed’.

“I believe Yoga is a discipline of awareness, leading to integration. Engaging in a more intimate relationship with the Self, we become empowered and are able to embrace positive change; breaking free from aspects that no longer serve us.” 

What people say about Marina and her courses:

Thoroughly enjoyed my first yoga class.

Marina was more than facilitating this week, she really taught the skills, meaning and process of yoga so that i really understood the positions. She was gentle and calm.

Yoga was wonderful.

I found Marina’s yoga sessions beneficial and inspiring.

Sensitive approach means I hope I will practice yoga at home.
