“I HAVE DECIDED TO STICK WITH LOVE. HATE IS TOO GREAT A BURDEN TO BEAR.”

About Marni

In 1987 as part of my acting training at NYU’s Experimental Theater Wing in Paris I was introduced to Yoga. A few years later I met my teacher Sharon Gannon and from that moment on I was hooked! I became a diehard Jivamukti yoga student, or as I like to say, “a trying to live softly, Jivamukti Yoga student!” I began teaching in 1995 and became a Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher in 1997. While teaching in the Hamptons I was introduced to Anusara Yoga. My first teachers were the amazing Doug Keller, Amy Ippoliti, Desiree Rumbaugh and Suzi Hurley. Then after years of study with John Friend I became an Anusara Inspired Teacher. My classes are infused with the ancient teachings of yoga for the modern mind and students say that I’m a teacher's teacher. (Although if you really want a teacher’s teacher I recommend studying with my teachers Sharon Gannon, David Life, John Friend and the many others I listed above…they’re all equally awesome!) I lead a yearly yoga teacher training and still study with my beloved teachers. While offering healthy, creative, fun sequencing to heal the body and mind, my classes are steeped with inspirational music, poetry, humor and spoken word.

 

I love yoga! I love how yoga works! I love how yoga is apocalyptic! (Not Martin Sheenish, but revelatory!) I love what yoga reveals in me, LOVE! Well, sometimes it reveals what's covering up the love and that's when I really get to PRACTICE yoga!  In class you will be challenged, cajoled, inspired and supported to delve deep into your body and mind and find out who you are and have always been...which is LOVE itself!
