Marilyn began her study of yoga and meditation over 35 years ago. She believes, ideally, yoga should be a life-long and ever-changing practice that keeps us healthy and balanced and that fosters conscious awareness of our spiritual growth and evolution. She is certified in both Interdisciplinary Yoga and Kripalu Yoga and is registered with the National Yoga Alliance. She has been teaching yoga and meditation for the past twelve years and recently finished her certification as an Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist. She teaches a non-authoritarian style of hatha yoga that emphasizes one’s practice as a personal process of self –discovery and self- development. Marilyn’s classes are often quiet and meditative, inviting the student to slow down and be fully present as movement, breath and consciousness are explored. Students are encouraged to listen to their body; to practice with compassion!
