“I really enjoyed my private yoga session with Marjorie. She adapted postures to meet my needs and has motivated me to continue my practice.”   Rhonda – Manotick, Canada

Marjorie helped me move to the next step in my practice and develop a regular practice. She inspired me to challenge myself and her gentle corrections greatly improved my form. My balance, flexibility and focus progressed to a deeper level. Marjorie is a great teacher!
Her yoga classes were the highlight of my week. She’s full of wisdom and her insights helped deepen my practice. With her guidance, I came to understand more clearly the body-mind connection in yoga, leading me to a lasting and more profound practice. I miss you, Marjorie!

Marjorie is a fabulous yoga teacher!! I was pretty much a beginner when I attended her classes. She did a very gentle class, explaining everything so well which made it easy for me to follow. I thoroughly enjoyed each class and came out feeling refreshed and relaxed. My body benefited from each class, so obviously stiffness and stress was gone! I would highly recommend Marjorie as a yoga instructor to any level.
