WHAT PEOPLE SAY

BEST THING I'VE EVER DONE FOR MYSELF.

“I have heard about every YTT that it is transformational. I entered a cynic but was proved wrong. Taking Marni’s teacher training was the best thing I have ever done for myself. Period. If you are intending to become a Yoga Teacher, consider this; Today I had my first audition at a Yoga Studio and walked out as the Studio’s newest teacher. That’s the power of Marni’s teacher training – it prepares you to be a teacher out of the gate.

ROBERT HAWKINS

I FOUND ENORMOUS PERSONAL HEALING

"The training is so thorough – spiritual, philosophical, anatomical, psychological, and holistic.  I found enormous personal healing - regained physical freedom from serious pervasive injuries; stepped into my true Path toward spiritual awakening; and in these nine months had a crystal clear sense of this smaller ”self” realigning with the true “Self” – with new space for Listening, after a long period of feeling progressively more disjointed and dis-integrated.

SHE TAUGHT ME WITH PATIENCE 

Marni woke up something in my heart that I could not let sleep again! From my first class with her where she said, laughing, “…and if that makes you roll your eyes it’s probably for you” until now, years after my Jivasara Certification, I carry her voice and feel her love and support. She taught me with patience and beautiful attention to both yogic scripture and informed anatomical alignment.
