A tribute to Marina Dmitri

The team at Iyengar North Shore Yoga would like to pay tribute to Marina Dmitri, a true yogi whom died unexpectedly on the 8th January 2016.

She had an amazingly positive influence on everyone she met. Marina was too beautiful for this world. She was taken from this earth far too early. She was only 29 years old!
