Marina graduated from The University of Virginia after 4 years as a rower and probably not enough time in the classroom. She started coaching immediately after college and coached at The University of California at Berkeley, The University of Wisconsin, Trinity College, The University of Alabama, The University of Oklahoma, and for the USRowing Olympic Development Program. She has, as an athlete and coach, stood atop the podium at NEIRAs, Eastern Sprints, PAC 10s, Big 10s, ACCs, The Head of the Charles, and NCAAs. She was named Collegiate Coach of the Year in 2005 by the Jim Joy Sculling Association for leading the Trinity women to the first of many dominant years in Division III. A shoulder injury that lead to surgery in 1998 sparked what would be a lifelong curiosity into how the body works, and a passion for helping athletes become the best version of themselves lead her down the path of mindfulness and high performance practices. These two avenues come together in yoga, where she lives now, and is honored to be part of the process for those seeking to participate in life at its highest level. She currently teaches the yoga of sustainable excellence to USRowing High Performance group, high schools and universities across the world, and in private practice.
