“I’ve been taking yoga for eight years now, never have I felt the love as with Marianne’s teachings.”



"Marianne and Ron create a wonderful experience and I would recommend their school to anyone wishing to immerse themselves in Yoga Teacher Training!"



“Marianne's training was the best experience of my life…physically challenging, mentally stimulating, spiritually uplifting!”



“I was diagnosed with MS three years ago, and I have regular pain as a result. These two weeks with Marianne, living the yoga-Ayurveda lifestyle, have been my first pain-free weeks in three years.”



“Twenty years of Iyengar yoga, and I never felt the love and light as I did with Marianne. Marianne showed me what moving with breath and motion and body is all about.”



“Everyday Marianne and Ron taught me about new ways to work with the physical body! I am very excited to bring what I learned back to Sweden and my physio patients.”

“I’ve learned the value of Really Real Yoga! Marianne teaches you what yoga is all about. My heart has grown so much. I am forever grateful for Marianne, Ron and the teaching assistants who took care of us.”



“Marianne teaches you to be more than just an average vinyasa teacher.”



“From the moment I arrived at Marianne’s training, I felt I was exactly where I was meant to be. Beyond learning asana and anatomy, I traveled back to my heart and this gave me courage and strength to live my life differently. Both literately and figuratively, I learned to dance again.”



"I’ve practiced yoga for 12 years, and lived in 3 countries, never have I experienced yoga to the depth that Marianne teaches. YTT has been incredible experience. Everyone is so supportive- thank you Marianne for making us better people and better teachers. We really are learning the foundations of yoga. Thank you for sharing your love and wisdom with us."



Vast Experience

My path has taken me far beyond yoga studio teaching. I’ve taught pre-schoolers to high schoolers, worked with professional sports teams on football and soccer fields, in dance studios bring the gift of yoga to dancers bodies, physical therapy clinics, mental health groups, eating disorder clinics, cancer groups, hospitals, and senior homes. I’ve taught at federal prisons, support groups for PTSD, and grief. I’ve taught at five star resorts throughout the Caribbean and YMCA basements. Whatever your reason for being here, and attending a YTT, chances are, I have the experience to lead you, guide you, into what ever your heart desires.
