Marie turned to yoga over 17 years ago when her husband was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s. Flexible, but not particularly athletic, Marie has found yoga life changing.
A Yoga Alliance E 200-hour registered teacher pursuing her 500-hour certification with Yoga Medicine, Marie teaches gentle yoga for all bodies with a special love for guiding seniors and those with chronic or disabling health conditions.
Typically she teaches weekly classes at Villager Yoga, Lakeshore Foundation, and O'Neal Library. During these atypical Covid times, she's teaching virtually at Villager and in-person private classes. Marie loves bringing yoga to public libraries, community centers, and retirement communities and will resume when possible.
Marie honors the body as it is, inviting everyone to experience linking breath and movement. A lifelong learner and librarian, Marie's training includes:
Adaptive Yoga with Matthew Sanford (50 hrs)
Integrative Yoga for Seniors (50 hrs) with Carol Krucoff and Kimberly Carson at Duke Integrative Medicine
Mindful Yoga for Chronic Pain (50 hrs) with Kimberly and Jim Carson at Oregon Health and Science University
Mindful Yoga for Cancer (50 hrs) with the Carsons at Duke. After mentored work with the Carsons, she earned the certification as a Mindful Yoga Works teacher.
