Journalist for ten years in Canada, New York and Moscow, then Communication Director & Consultant in Cross-Cultural Management for international companies such as Yves Rocher & Amadeus, I rediscovered Yoga after moving to Monaco in 2008.

Convinced of its benefits, I founded in 2015 Elanda Villa, a haven of peace located in Cap d’Ail where I share my passion for Yoga, Pilates, Qi Gong, Reiki and meditation.

Today, I continue to teach Yoga in private classes but mainly offer Life Coaching sessions – a personalized support allowing you to become aware of your full potential and achieve your goals.

Thanks to Yoga, meditation and Qigong and thanks to a benevolent guidance, I help you to align yourself and to anchor yourself, to better listen to your body and your soul, to develop resilience, confidence and letting go, a better connection to the world and to yourself.

I allow you to identify your strengths and your objectives, to name and overcome the blockages that hold you back, and to acquire the tools to achieve lasting fulfillment. Because yes, with the right tools and diligent practice, true happiness is within reach.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’

Actually, who are you not to be?

“I have tried so many yoga classes in so many different places without ever finding my peace until I met Marion.

She is the kindest, most generous person I have met. Her smile lits the room and she literally radiates positive energy. She is attentive and dedicated, and always strives to encourage you. She has helped me find my balance and my inner strength.

I am so grateful to her and have been looking forward to my yoga sessions ever since.

Thank you!”

“Pushing the door of Elanda Villa in Cap d’Ail is already an experience.

This fitness center is unlike any other in the area.

The place is a cocoon dedicated to your wellness and Marion the founder, pretty like a heart, is a real sunshine and exudes a special aura.

Her Yin yoga class is a pure moment of happiness and the opportunity to reconcile your body and mind, gently.

Marion goes further and offers personal coaching sessions during which you refocus on yourself, who you are and what you aspire to become.

The septic that I am wanted to try the experiment, at first, just to see.

Exchanges, meditation, introspection, in good humor, without judgment and with the natural benevolence of this young woman who is a mix of power and sweetness.

And it works beyond all my expectations.

I can testify today, after only a few months of practicing, of the new well-being that I feel and the change that is slowly coming into me.

A little something that allows me to be more serene, more indulgent about life, about my relationship with others in general and about myself; a little something that has taught me to see the glass half full rather than half empty, accept myself more, love myself more, live my life with more flexibility and strength.

The way is still long, it will surely take time to reach the goal that I set to myself: which is to live lightly but I’m on the right path and Marion, I owe it to you.

Thank you.”

“I thank you for all your affection and for all your help; you told me one day that Yoga saved your life, well, our meeting and your teachings also saved mine.”

Karine A., Monaco

“I pushed Elanda’s door one summer morning a bit by chance. I realized later that it was not a coincidence … I met a fairy of wellness. I found peace comfort energy pleasure desire joy and sharing. Marion rightly knows how to listen to our bodies and our souls to reinvigorate them and bring them back to life. We have to push Elanda’s door – even by chance – we do not return by chance but by need.”

Laurence P., Paris

“A big thank you to Marion who in 4 months put me back on track after two back surgeries (herniated discs). Thanks to yoga & Pilates postures and Marion’s personalized trainings, I was able to regain flexibility of the spine, better balance & strength in general and I am now almost pain-free ! Thank you for given me the attention & help I needed.”

Igor A., Monaco

“If Marion passes in your life, it’s not by chance, choose to go a long way with her, in addition to doing good to your body, it will bring you serenity, it will give you keys that will open small doors to the essential with kindness and love. “

“Swimming, getting massages and doing prenatal yoga with Marion, my pregnancy has just been marvellous”…

“I first became acquainted with Marion in March of 2007, when I contacted her to participate in her seminar for expats living in France. I found Marion to be compassionate, empathetic and professional in her approach to helping foreigners adjust to their new life living in a new land. Her seminar was very helpful to me in understanding the difficulties I had experienced as an expat were normal and part of the process of integration. With Marion’s help, I was able to focus and direct my attention on a course of action for success in France. Her assistance has been invaluable to me personally and professionally. I would gladly recommend her services to anyone preparing for a life abroad. Since that time, Marion has become a trusted colleague and friend.”
