Breath, dristi and conscious movement with awareness are my mantras. Marjorie’s yoga journey started back in 1999 when she was first introduced to Hatha yoga. As her passion for yoga developed, the attraction to the physical challenge of Vinyasa, and then Ashtanga, yoga grew. She loved its ability to strengthen, balance and focus both her body and her mind. As a Breast Cancer Survivor, Marjorie found yoga was a way to open her heart, release pressure, and deal with all the stresses and uncertainty of experiencing cancer. After trauma, any kind of trauma, your body is different, and understanding this helped Marjorie discover her love of Iyengar yoga. She loves the postural alignment and especially loves the use of a good block or strap to deepen your practice. Marjorie’s classes blend Vinyasa, Iyengar and Ashtanga yoga styles, synchronizing breath and movement. Marjorie is a 500 E-RYT Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher who graduated from Yoga South, trained under James Kigar and Judy Weaver.
