Shelter Strong (vinyasa)
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,
I found yoga in 2014, when I happened to stumble upon a deal I found online. I thought I would just try it and see what happened, expecting another workout class I would not be good at, but I wanted to give it a shot. Sitting down for my first class, I never would have known then that my life would be forever impacted by this practice. I have always struggled with body issues and the ability to find love for myself. This practice has helped me immensely to overcome those challenges and find appreciation for my body. Yoga has been an amazing tool to help me on the road to self-trust. I wanted to spread the love that I found in my classes with others as well - that is when I started my yoga teacher training in 2016. I started teaching as soon as I graduated! I want people to be able to show up for themselves and to find that safe space on the mat. Yoga does not care what you look like, no matter your shape, size, race, sexuality, or gender. As long as you can breathe, you can join in this beautiful practice. See you on the mat!
