Marcy has always been interested in body movement. As a teenager, she studied classical ballet in New York at American Ballet Theater. After taking time out to raise her family, she got back in shape doing P90X DVDs and yoga day was her favorite. Gradually she found better yoga practices which led her to David Swenson and Kino MacGregor to and her love of Ashtanga yoga. Flowing with the breath and creating a lyrical quality is what moves her and drew her to Vinyasa and Ashtanga yoga. Once she started taking live yoga classes, she was hooked and has been practicing yoga for over 10 years. Marcy received her RYT-200 from John Merideth and has taken workshops with David Swenson, Kino MacGregor, Manju Jois, David Garrigues, Tim Feldmann, Seane Corne, and David Regelin. She currently studies with Todd Roderick, a direct student of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.
As a teacher, she hopes to be inspirational to everyone on their yoga journey. But first and foremost, she is always a student constantly learning and hopes to pass on her passion and love of yoga while helping students find their connection to themselves through asana, pranayama, and meditation. Each day you come to your mat brings a new set of challenges and rewards. It’s how you face those challenges that will help you off the mat as well. Yoga isn’t about perfection, it’s about your practice and what you learn along the way in your journey to transformation.
Yoga has brought Marcy happiness and peace in a way she never thought possible. Never one to shy away from a challenge, she will always try to challenge you, make you strive for greatness and in the process make you realize you are capable of more than you ever thought possible and always while having fun in the process.
Marcy has also studied ballroom dancing for the past 8 years and in her spare time loves to cook and spend time with her husband, Eddie and her dog, Max the Pomeranian.
“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds. Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive and you discovery yourself to be a greater person than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” – Patanjali, The Yoga Sutras
