MARI's interview

QUESTION 01 | 08
What age did you start playing sport? Tell us about this time or moment in your life.
MARI — I skate since I was 8 years old. This sport brings back many wonderful memories, especially the one about my figure skate team in Italy.
QUESTION 02 | 08
What are your favourite sports; those that you practice at a high level, a simple hobby, and a sport that you'd still like to discover?
MARI — Other than skate, I teach yoga. I'm a passionate hoop dancer and skier too.
QUESTION 03 | 08
What gives you the motivation and passion to pursue your sport?
MARI — My focus is on the "feel-good-factor": When I connect deeply to my flow body, whether that be for a moment or through devotional practice, I allow myself the space to recharge, to heal.
QUESTION 04 | 08
Do you have a sporting achievement that you're particularly proud of?
MARI — After many years of figure skating I decided to learn roller dancing - which is a totally different animal!
QUESTION 05 | 08
How have your achievements and challenges made you a better sportsperson?
MARI — Achievements and challenges in sport help to develop focus and awareness. Being present in sport develops a more focused mind.
QUESTION 06 | 08
If you had to go for a jog with a famous athlete, who would you choose? And what questions would you ask them?
MARI — I like to have conversations with people practicing different disciplines than mine so I can learn their approach and story.
QUESTION 07 | 08
How do you help people stay motivated?
MARI — All my students have fun when skating. I make sure they feel safe and comfortable experimenting with transitions, new techniques, and tricks.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof in sports?
MARI — Understanding students motivation and goal is a must to deliver value during the time they spend with me.
