About Marianne

laughingglassescomp.jpg

My yoga journey began as a teenager with chronic back pain caused by a curvature of my spine (scoliosis) and the back brace I wore to prevent my curve from worsening. 

 

It was the most unlikely beginning for a lifetime of teaching softness and flexibility in the body. My mother was a yoga teacher and her influence has guided my learning.

Yoga has helped my flexibility, my strength, and resolved the constant back pain I experienced as a young adult.  It has helped me develop mentally to accept  the body I have and equipped me with coping techniques when feeling stressed or overwhelmed. The importance of mental health and having tools to help you relax are woven throughout the classes I now teach.

Yoga Training

Before becoming a yoga teacher, I taught the Alexander Technique for over twenty years specialising in postural alignment, conscious movement and muscle release. 
 
In 2010 I trained with the British Wheel of Yoga to become a yoga teacher completing the 500-hour diploma - the highest level of teaching yoga in the UK. It was an amazing learning experience and changed my life. I never believed I could stand in front of a class and teach. Yoga has given me that confidence.

I now teach four classes a week in the beautiful village of Boxford in Suffolk and online. The classes are friendly and fun. Suitable whether you are new to yoga or have been practicing for many years. I am a firm believer that yoga should be accessible to all it is just a case of finding the class to suit you.

Trust your heart your inner teacher

My attitude to yoga is adaptable ensuring that yoga is accessible to everyone whatever your age, physical ability or experience. My yoga students have become a wonderful community of mutual support. I invite you to come to a class to learn more about the spiritual teachings of yoga, breathwork and guided meditative practices.

“Marianne's classes are a joy. Her teaching is calm and relaxed with clear explanations of positions. She has a wonderfully friendly and warm approach. Even with my dodgy sense of balance and co-ordination these classes are fabulously fun and relaxing. I can't recommend too highly!”
