Who is Marcelina?
Marcelina is originally from Poland, but moved to Peterborough in 2005. At age 12, she took her first ever yoga class with Sandra Robinson at Equilibrium – and of course it was a Forrest class! From then on, she fell in love with the practice and the studio. As a teenager, Marcelina continued to attend some classes and occasionally practiced yoga at home. However, yoga took a backseat to more vigorous forms of exercise.
It was not until 2016, when she moved to Leeds to study at university, that she returned to a regular yoga practice. She attended weekly Ashtanga classes and also started rowing. However, her frustration with the competitive nature of sport societies lead her give it up and replaced it with – more yoga! The classes helped Marcelina to rediscover the sense of calm and refuge that she felt at Equilibrium.
Sometimes we have to leave something behind in order to appreciate its magnificence… and sometimes we are just not ready to understand. But know that whatever is meant for you will follow you until you answer the call.
For a long time Marcelina felt the calling to teach, but didn’t take this dream seriously until graduating in 2020. After reaching out to Sandra about her desire to teach, she was invited to join the Forrest teacher’s morning practice which she attended almost every morning since then. She completed the first ever online Forrest Yoga Foundation Teacher Training with Ana Forrest and Jose Calarco in April-May 2021. Marcelina adores teaching and uses her voice to create a sense of calm and peace in her classes.
