Located in Helsinki, Finland, Marinka is a certified yoga teacher and model. She was first introduced to yoga and meditation at age 13, when she found a yoga DVD misplaced into a box of movies for sale at a mall. That led to a weekly yoga practice along with ballet and tennis. Later getting her 200 hour yoga teacher certification in Bali in 2017 the opportunities to teach yoga started shortly after graduation. Being in front of people has been natural for Marinka ever since she started modeling at the age of 11. The career in modeling later turned into acting in her early 20's. Working first in TV ads and later on TV shows such as Sport Girl 2016 and Punk'd Suomi. 

As of 2018, Marinka now teaches yoga full time and continues her teacher training with Yoga Medicine towards the 500 hour certification. Her knowledge in anatomy, health and wellness is supported by her Bachelor's degree in Radiography and Radiotherapy through which she has had the chance to work in the medical field and meet people from very different backgrounds.
