Marine regularly gives yoga classes at Anticafé Bordeaux. From Australia to Florida, she tells us about her career and her projects.
Hello Marine, who are you, where are you from?
Hello, my name is Marine, I’m 26 years old. I come from the Reunion Island and I have been living in Bordeaux for 8 years now!
Tell us a little bit more about your background
I moved to Bordeaux immediately after graduating from high school: I enrolled in a communication/marketing school where I completed a Master’s degree. After that, I quickly found a job in marketing.
I realized that life behind a desk was not my thing, so I worked up the courage to go to Australia for a year in October 2017. I spent a year travelling, discovering a new culture and above all meeting many people. Above all, this experience allowed me to discover myself and what I really wanted to do with my life.
In Australia, yoga is very popular. During my stay, I tried several types of yoga and completely fell in love with it.
Back in Bordeaux (6 months ago now), I realized that I didn’t want to go back to my previous life so I decided to embark on a training course to become a yoga teacher. I then flew to North Florida where I discovered more spiritual aspects of yoga that I didn’t know about and the whole history behind it. It became obvious…
What do you love about your job?
So I have been teaching yoga classes in Bordeaux for 6 months now. What I love most as a yoga teacher is sharing. I meet really incredible people with whom I share the same values, the same beliefs. I learn a lot with my students. It’s very rewarding.
What’s your mantra?
“Be the energy you want to attract”. In other words, we must create the energies we want to see happening within us. I believe in the law of attraction.
Some fun facts about your workshops?
I find it amusing how some of my students copy every single thing I do. Sometimes I scratch my nose or put my hair back and I am surprised to see some people do the same. That’s funny! I often tell my students that their bodies must be allowed to express themselves and above all to listen to themselves. I am simply there as a messenger to guide them.
A future project in sight?
I am very happy because I have just launched my t-shirt brand “Spiritual wave” in collaboration with Yoann from PetitAloe. With this project, I want to transmit all my positive energies and make all women shine naturally. I hope I can do it!
For you, what is Anticafé?
Anticafé is a warm little cocoon. You don’t necessarily realize it from the outside, but once you get in, you don’t want to get out.
