Marcel became familiar with therapeutic body work during his early age due to his mother, a physiotherapist and alternative healer. After a shoulder injury he started to practice Yoga, studying different styles like Shivananda and Ashtanga Yoga.
In 2011 Marcel moved to Istanbul, and continued his practice in the community of Cihangir Yoga. He completed his 200h YTT with Chris Chavez, and graduated from the Cihangir Yoga 300h YTT, including the mentorship program and a personal assistance. During the last years he attended workshops with Meghan Currie, Elena Brower, Dylan Werner, Sienna Sherman, Carlos Pomeda and Leslie Kaminoff.
Since 2017 Marcel teaches weekly studio classes for Cihangir Yoga in Istanbul, and travels for trainings, workshops and retreats. He is a registered teacher with Yoga Alliance E-RYT 500 and provides continuing education YACEP.
