With an MBA in supply chain management from Arizona State University and a master from Toulouse business school, Marine begins her career as a category manager in the health industry in Belgium. She moved to Paris seven years ago, focused on making it big in fashion without knowing that pilates would captivate her so much so that it would challenge her plans.
The day she discovered the studio five years ago, Marine falls in love with the place, the light, the energy and become friends with Moraima Gaetmank, the founder. The regular practice of pilates and the learning of its founding principles (control, concentration, centering, precision, breath, flow, relaxation) considerably modify her relationship to herself, to others and to her environment.
When the opportunity came, it was all naturally and very clearly that Marine decides to take direction of the studio and keeps its concept as it was thought out by Moraima from the start.
Today, Marine teaches pilates and wishes to convey her enthusiasm for the method to all practitioners.
