About Marcel:

Marcel has been practicing yoga for over 2 decades, starting in a difficult period in his life, finding the healing benefits of this practice and meditation changed his life dramatically. He started his journey with Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga and Vipassana meditation, moving into a more static alignment yoga. Then he met Yin yoga’s founder Paul Grilley and his wife Suzee, who showed him the physical, mental and spiritual uniqueness of everybody. Studying under their wings changed his view on asana practice and meditation seriously. Knowing now that we’re all unique and we all need an unique approach in whatever we do, this is the message that he carries out in all his teachings. 


Marcel is a well experienced teacher with almost 20 years of teaching experience, not only weekly classes in his studio in Amsterdam, but teaching teacher trainings and workshops worldwide. He calls the style of yoga that he is teaching Functional (Vinyasa) yoga, and it’s all about how to use the poses in the most beneficial way for your unique body, instead of how to try to fit your body into an aesthetic pose. 


Besides being a functional movement trainer Marcel is a licensed Acupuncturist, Massage therapist and specialist in herbal remedies.


Marcel is known for his strong sweaty functional vinyasa classes, his soft, soothing yin yoga classes and deep inter perspective guided chakra vinyasa meditations.


Marcel has been a gym goer for a long time and after teaching private yoga clients for a while, helping people with injuries and people that are recovering from all other kinds of physical problems he realized that it could be helpful in some cases to bring yoga students to the gym, with the idea that weight resistant movements can help them in a faster way. He became a (N.A.S.M.) personal trainer, now combining yoga, meditation and weightlifting to maintain or create a healthy lifestyle.


Nowadays Marcel practices besides yoga, Crossfit where he is a level 1 trainer (CF-LV1), and you can find him boxing, or running. He believes that functional multi-disciplined moving is the best way to maintain physical health of course combined with healthy food, and good nights rest!
