Born in Sri Lanka, raised in Germany - My first insights into Yoga & Meditation were on my first trip to Sri Lanka, almost 20 years ago. A few years later I started teaching. My initial former 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training was held at the Yoga Shala Berlin in 2007, conducted by Henning Scheel (who studied with Shiva Rea) and Andrej Lappa / Universal Yoga, followed by a 300 hour training in 2013 with the team of Louisa Sear / Yoga Arts Australia and so many more hours of study along the way - with Daniel Odier (Kashmir Shaivism), at the Krishnamarchaya Institute, with Sri Nanda Kumar (Senior Iyengar teacher), at the Dayananada Ashram (Institute for Vedanta), with David Swenson, Clive Sheridan, Ana Forrest, Sally Kempton…….. and more recently with Sianna Sherman / Rasa Yoga, her partner Masood Ali Khan/Bhakti Yoga, Shiva Rea / Lunar Arts and ongoingly by Louisa Sear´s Yoga Arts / Kashmir Shaivism, Hatha Yoga and Ayurveda.
In 2015 together with my partner Mahendra, I created Sri Yoga Shala: a centre for yoga, meditation, movement, bodywork, arts and creativity on the southwest coast of Sri Lanka, the country I chose to live in since 2012.
“My intention, as much in my own practice as in my teachings is the fostering of the connection to our core, our innate wisdom teacher, the potential for instant joy and our capacity for self healing.”
With respect and curiosity for the living art and ritual of yoga, I have had the privilege of studying under many amazing teachers in different styles – completing the RYT 500 at Radiantly Alive with Daniel Aaron and Edward Clarke (Tripsichore) in Ubud Bali - with a focus in advanced sequencing and Prenatal Vinyasa. Having further spent time deepening my understanding of the chakra system, Ayurveda and meditation techniques with Shiva Rea and Demetri Velisarius in Los Angeles and India; and many hours of self exploration on and off the mat at home. This practice has taken me to many trainings, workshops, retreats, classes, beaches, rooftops, parks and decks around the world.
Above all I feel a deep curiosity about our human capacity and creative potential and feel humbled to share the essence of my findings in the form of Sattvic Vinyasa here in Sri Lanka.
Wishing you loving kindness on your path,

I was born and raised in southern Sweden, at heart though - I feel like world citizen.
I feel just as much home in Portugal, Sweden and Bali.
I love yoga. Teaching it. Practising it. Living it. The way it makes me feel. I love healthy vibrant beautiful food. Preparing it. Capturing it. Sharing it.
I thrive of being surrounded by, and connecting to likeminded, uplifting people. Sharing ideas and collaborate on uplifting projects. I wish to be of service. To live fully, knowing that I've done something good for this world.
What you can expect in my classes
In my classes you can expect slow yet strength building sequences drawing inspiration from different styles of yoga and teachers I've learnt from. Sometimes I share a poem in class, put on a yummy playlist, invite free flowing movement and other times my classes are more structured and I give more space for silence. Every class is different from the other. That's what I love about Vinyasa Flow - the endless creativity and freedom it gives me.
As much as I like to invite you to play and challenge yourself, absorbing the heat - I'll always encourage your to listen to your body and be true to yourself and your practice.
Apart from Vinyasa Flow I also teach Hatha, Yin, Restorative and Partner yoga.
Over the past 10 years, I dedicated my life to developing my spiritual and holistic practices, combining several modalities to help an individual who would like to take their health into their own hands, as I did. This is how I coach any individual who needs guidance to take care of him- or herself, discover real happiness and real peace, with the help of a combination of modalities as described in this website, and share my knowledge by teaching different type of classes.

HOLISITIC AYURVEDIC CONSULTATION
The constitution test is the first step to determine what is your true nature (Prakruti). Knowing your dosha ( Vata, Pitta, Kapha ) will help you to understand how you function naturally physical, mentally and emotionally.
From there, based on the result, we will together find what balances you. Once the constitution test is done, I will help you identify your actual state (Vikruti), what creates unbalance, and what can be improved in your daily life through very simple tips&tools. All doshas have specific characteristics, and some special food or habits can either balance or disturb them.
"I believe in an urban and modern approach of Ayurveda. During an individual consultation, my goal is to help you introduce some simple Ayurvedic principles in your busy life. No overcontrolling, or strict discipline, only knowledge and awareness is needed, think "Butterfly Effect".Sometimes the smallest change has the biggest effect!"
During this hour long consultation, you will discover your original constitution and also determine the present imbalance to focus on.
Come as you are, bring a little note book and a pen to bring back home a few tips to improve your everyday routine.
Can't wait to meet you!
Marjorie had her first contact with yoga and meditation when she was 13 years old and since then, keeps looking into the mind-body-soul connection. She is a Vinyasa teacher and an Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant. She is French but lived in over 6 countries and travels as much as possible to learn and share her love for yoga and alternative therapies.
"I work with Ayurveda, and alternative therapies for over 13 years, I regularly practice Yoga for over 8, part of it in US. I truly believe that the secret to be happy and healthy is to combine an appropriate yoga practice, mediation and breath, and an intuitive and personal approach to Ayurveda.
My extended background in Ayurveda began in Portugal in 2005. I was an Ayurvedic massage therapist (Method Kusum Modak, Pune) for over 7 years. I now share my love for Ayurveda through Holistic Ayurvedic consultations. An Ayurvedic approach based on individual coaching that helps create an easy and healthy diet and habits, but also understand our true nature, create awareness to find a physical, mental and emotional balance.
I have been traveling around Europe and some parts of the world, learning, experimenting, diving into different therapies and sciences in order to find the mind-body-soul connection, the connection from lower self to the higher self and help people finding theirs."
Hangab – Inversion Bodywork
Sliding scale 12,000-15,000LKR / 90min
Let go – realign – reset
In a Hangab-Session you are gently lifted into an inversion (either partly or full flying) step by step and so slow, that the body has time to adapt. It is the key to avoid uncomfortable pressure in the head.
Hangab allows you to release, let go and enter a stillpoint feeling with the sensation of flying, wellbeing and total relaxation.
Potential benefits: Relief and regeneration of the spine, discs, joints, release of emotions, tensions, traumas, a reset of the body, energy system, increased activation of self-healing powers, balance of pelvic obliquity and many more benefits...(For more Info, read our test with a doctor, osteopath and kinesiologist at www.hangab.at)
Description: Going up as slow as possible is the key. From a laying relaxation, only the legs are lifted, we give a brief introduction and help you to relax. In the next step we lift the pelvis of the floor and continue step by step into half candle and shoulderstand. Going up can take up to 20-25 min which is the required speed for the body to adjust to the inversion allowing you to sink deeper and deeper into relaxation. You will be guided into different pleasant positions, stretches, soft swinging and intuitive work. Wether we do a Hangab-Ground Session(up until shoulderstand) or go all the way into Hangab-Flying, the mind shuts off and tensions relax. Letting go can be physical, mental, emotional or silent. In every case it is a deep journey into yourself, very often perceived as an experience out of time and space.
