GET TO KNOW ME...
Not a day goes by when I am not grateful to be able to do what I love for a living... Merging my love for yoga and wellness, travelling and meeting new people, living consciously and minimally and integrating and connecting with community.
I grew up in Cochrane Alberta but was always encouraged to travel and see the world. I have journeyed to over 30 countries and have seen some absolutely amazing places, but our family acreage in Cochrane, which we call "The Field of Dreams" will always be home.
When I was 20, my father passed away in a ski accident. He played a huge role in encouraging me to travel, take risks and listen to that inner voice guiding me to be the best version of myself I could possibly be. After his death, it was and continues to be yoga that brings me peace. I can come to my mat each day to breathe, be present and connect to my own inner wisdom. My fathers death is a driving force for the reason why I do what I do. Death teaches us just how unpredictable, precious and short life truly is. It taught me to LIVE.
My intensions both as a yoga instructor and human being on this earth is to foster community and create space for people to uncover and acknowledge their best selves. I believe that we all have something unique, and special to offer our community to make us stronger, wiser and more connected. We are all walking on this crazy and beautiful journey called life... lets do it together.

"I have had the pleasure of knowing Marni just a few short months but in that time she has made a profound influence on my appreciation for yin yoga and my health. For years I'd been suffering with chronic pain in my lower back to the point where it was difficult to get dressed. After my first class with Marni I knew there was something special about her with her ability to teach, challenge and allow herself to be vulnerable by sharing her journal entry which moved me. In telling her a portion of my story/health concerns, she introduced me to Somatics, a path I hadn't travelled on yet, but knew this is where I was supposed to be. After a few personal sessions together, she was able to provide me with stretches, strengthening and a program to better myself and quality of life which I'm beyond thankful for."
"Marni is an amazing yoga teacher! I thoroughly enjoy her classes. Would highly recommend any class Marni is teacher"
"Marni’s yoga classes are woven from her heart. Her words, her themes, her music and her presence all weave a thread that originates from a place of tenderness.
Her ability to hold that heart space for all of us is steeped in a life devoted to travel & endless curiosity. Marni does the work of diving deep to the bottom of the sea and brings up the treasures for all of us to see.
Her eyes have seen many things and her heart has felt much depth and we are all so fortunate to be the recipients of these gifts"
