testimonials

Mari and her one on one sessions with my daughter were incredibly helpful in so many ways. Jane learned some valuable ways to cope with the stresses of becoming a young adult and pressures of school/friends. She now has tools to deal with anxiety in a productive way, instead of turning to her computer, TV or phone. Mari worked with Jane to develop healthy habits and focus on the importance of mindful breathing to promote relaxation. Yoga practice became part of a routine that they established together. Jane looked forward to her time with Mari as a much needed break from her busy schedule. As a Mom, I am so grateful to have found a positive and grounding influence/role model like Mari. She’s had a profound affect on my Jane and her understanding the importance of incorporating mindful practices like meditating, breathing and yoga into her life to maintain a healthy balance and improved sense of overall well-being.

One-on-one sessions with Mari were a way for me to escape the stress of high school and focus on taking care of myself.  Mari helped me realize the importance of taking care of myself physically and mentally, and her sense of empathy is parallel to none. I feel so lucky to have had the experience of practicing yoga with Mari’s guidance— with each session being carefully curated to my personal needs, I am always certain that the time I spend with Mari is time well spent.

I attended Mari’s adult/child yoga class last Spring ... with my daughters and loved it!  Like most modern families we are constantly on the go, so I looked forward to our weekly session where we could just breathe---literally!!  I had little to no yoga experience prior to the class, but through Mari’s skillful teaching was able to quickly learn the basic poses and left each class with my body and mind feeling relaxed, peaceful, and happy (not to mention the great core workout)!  The best part of the experience was observing my daughters using their newly learned techniques to sooth their stress.  Awesome class!!

We enjoyed yoga and the energy it brought us each week. Best of luck to you and please keep us posted of any classes in the future!!
