Marie has a Bachelor degree from the Culinary Institute of Paul Bocuse in Lyon, France, the country where she grew up.
She moved to New York in 1998 and had the opportunity to work in prestigious hotels and restaurants in Manhattan, then she moved Long Island.
She started to practice different styles of yoga after the birth of her daughter and discovered that Yoga like good Cuisine could bring people a lot happiness and well -being.
Yoga brought her enjoyment, pleasure, better health and boosted her energy. The benefits of practicing were not only physical, but also mental and emotional.
Like to Chocolate , she became addicted to Yoga !
So, she decided to learn more about it and its philosophy in order to become a teacher and specialized in Vinyasa Flow and Restorative.
She followed the teacher training program at Om sweet Om and is very grateful to Gail, Deborah, Jen, and Robin, for being such amazing teachers and earned her RYT 200 certification.
