Marcia has a passionate belief in living a life that connects and inspires. This philosophy has fuelled her life both on and off the yoga mat. A mom, a lifelong learner and a deeply passionate and open being, her life explorations have included studies in occupational therapy and biochemistry, long self propelled journeys by bike and foot in mountains and on remote roads, and testing her edge in triathlons of all distances including Ironman. Her yoga journey has included exploration of Anusara, Ashtanga, and Bikram yoga. She currently owns and operates a yoga studio in Kamloops, BC – a reflection of her belief that we need to look creatively at how we can best care for ourselves and the world around us. Marcia trained primarily in the US and has over 1000 hours of study with Martin and Jordan Kirk, Noah Maze, Marc Holzman, Paul Muller Ortega, Todd Inouye and John Friend. Her background in health and rehabilitation and her own health challenges of scoliosis and asthma have inspired her to explore all aspects of yoga, including gentler practices such as restorative yoga and subtle practices of breathwork and meditation. Marcia has been teaching children and adults since 2009. Creating and connecting are her passions.
