Mind, Body, Spirit & Rap Lyrics

I can’t think of a better combination to promote stimulation and self-growth. Yoga Shelter is the place where these components come together; it’s the place where we can dig in and see how badass we truly are. This is where we can exercise our bodies and ultimately our minds. Yoga has served as a catalyst for my spiritual growth and self-awareness; it has taught me to own my story vs. run from it. Yoga has given me the opportunity to work on myself, through myself. When we realize that the world is not out to get us, it is out to teach us, we begin to grow. We all have work to do, better to do the work in a supportive community with people who accept us for who we are in this moment, and honor who we are working on becoming.

“I’ve been working on myself and that’s the most important work, even if you don’t get paid for it”
-Big Sean

Marni Stone

Marni Stone has a Master’s Degree in Social Work and has been working in the field of health and wellness for over 25 years. She holds a variety of fitness certifications and has completed 2-200 RYT Yoga Certifications. She teaches everything from TRX classes to senior fitness, but believes that true wellness requires attention to more than just our physical selves. She has been practicing and teaching yoga sine 2004 and has found it to be the most gratifying of all the classes she teaches.

Marni’s background in anatomy and alignment can be seen in every style of yoga that she teaches, as is evident in the way she sequences her yoga flows, and guides students between postures. She creates a safe environment for students to reach their edge in a pose, but reminds them to do so without ego. She creates complex but sensible flows while encouraging students to become their own teacher by monitoring their breath and their internal guidance system.

Marni encourages her students to practice without judgment or comparison, to move beyond the physical appearance of a pose towards more of an inward state of awareness. She believes that the greatest gift of yoga is to apply the lessons we learn on our yoga mat to other areas in our lives. Namely, that when we quiet the voice of our negative ego, and choose to connect to the peace and love within us, it helps us create more satisfying and joyful experiences.

I look forward to practicing with you soon,

Namaste,

Marni

Our signature "power" yoga style is a fusion of Strong and Steady, ending with a little Still. By blending the detoxifying qualities of a vinyasa with the intensity of a slow burn we create an invigorating full-body flow where everybody can explore postures and principles while increasing strength and stamina. Start burning away toxins by generating heat with flowing Vinyasa movements of Ashtanga based Sun Salutations linked to the breath. Slowing down and stoking the fire with our breath, we focus on maintaining alignment and structural integrity with longer holds exploring standing, balancing, and even basic inversions. Confidently build endurance and increase flexibility, by aligning to the best version of yourself, working to explore the potential inside before recharging with a deep, relaxing savasana and stepping back into life outside.
