Marvin is a native Salvadorian from San Salvador, El Salvador. He migrated to the states in 1995. After graduating high school in Texas, he joined the U.S. Army and completed a tour overseas. After his time in the service, he was left with chronic pain and injuries that never seemed to heal, until he found the 26/2 hot yoga series. He has been practicing the hot yoga for 17 years and teaching for about 8 years. He began his practice as a way to heal from injury and to increase strength and flexibility, not knowing that the Yoga would end up changing his life in so many unexpected ways. After finishing his degree in computer information systems from the University of Houston, Marvin became a certified teacher and decided to embrace the yogi lifestyle to pursue a simpler life teaching yoga fulltime.
