Join Marvin for a 25hour Prana & Pranayama teacher training course.
Imagine if you could consciously choose between your right and left brain hemispheres, intuitive and analytical intelligence, sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, fight/flight reflex and rest/relaxation, and between the male and female aspects of your psyche. Wouldn't it be great if you could switch from charged with energy to completely relaxed within a few minutes? Or from extroverted (expressive and outgoing) to introvert (reflective and absorbing) within a short time. This switch does in fact exist and it is not at all hidden. As a matter of fact, it's literally hidden in plain sight in the middle of your face: your nose.
Pranayama includes some of the most neglected but yet most powerful methods of yoga and is the vital link that connects asana to meditation without which the combined benefit of both cannot be harvested.

Meet the Teacher :
Marvin practices Yoga since 2009 and teaches since 2013. The foundation of Marvin’s yogic path was paved by Dr. Nitin Unkule in Pune, India. From him Marvin learned the importance of proper alignment of the body while practicing asana. The effects of yoga on the human mind and psyche where made most clear to Marvin by Yogacharya Vinay Kumar of Mysore, India. Vinay’s unique style and approach to teaching deepened Marvin’s understanding of the mind-body connection and expanded his knowledge of utilizing the breath in order to deepen one’s physical and mental capacities. The biggest influence on Marvin’s overall understanding of Yoga was bestowed on him by Shree BNS Iyengar of Mysore, India. Shree BNS Iyengar is one of the last living students of Shree T. Krishnamacharya (“The father of modern yoga”) and at age 93 the oldest living master of Ashtanga Yoga in the world. Under his guidance Marvin practiced and studied Asana, Pranayama, Mudras (energetic seals) and yoga philosophy. Furthermore, Marvin has studied and practiced with world renowned teachers such as David Swenson, Andrei Ram, Gregor Maehle and Dev Kapil. He has taught yoga in Germany, India, Nigeria, Singapore and Thailand where he currently lives with his wife Monica and new born daughter Shandi.
