After severely spraining his back in 2004, Marcus was told by an orthopaedic surgeon to not participate in strenuous activities for the next 12 months. 12months turned to 12years as inertia set in. With an intense work & travel schedule, unrestrained food habits, late nights, & sedentary life, caused him to be 10kg overweight, and he was constantly fatigued.
Marcus settled on yoga, perceiving it as the easy way of getting a workout. Yoga, originally intending for it to be a form of workout, became a daily desperate need; the 2hours of pure focus, breathing & movement was the sanctuary he sought to prepare for the day. This practice became even more significant during the COVID lockdown. Marcus discovered deeper realizations & an improved practice. This naturally pulled him into the pursuit to be a yoga teacher.
Since then, Marcus has guided & developed students across Singapore, Southeast Asia & the US, combining technology & private classes to create a hybrid approach to teaching.
Marcus is an aspiring osetopath, certified Brain Longevity Specialist & has participated in several Isha Yoga Programs.
Marcus teaches Basic and Advanced Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, Therapy, Restorative, Pranayama & Meditation.
