Marjorie “Margie” Terrell, e-RYT, is a student of life, has an extensive background in body studies, and is passionate about sharing information as to how yoga brings about a multitude of health benefits physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Through her life experiences as a swim instructor and lifeguard, a certified AFAA fitness instructor, a volleyball player and coach, and a yoga instructor and practitioner, Margie has been able to pass along knowledge of many amazing health benefits to others. Her personal studies include travels around the world, working with indigenous peoples, Disaster Response Team training and deployments, experiencing nature, music, food, and many, many books!
Margie has deepened her yoga understandings by studying with such highly esteemed instructors as Mark Whitwell, Aadil Palkhivala, Dr. Marc Halpern (Ayurveda), Tias and Surya Little, and Gary Kraftsow . She has completed extensive study of spinal integration and incorporation with yoga master, Donna Farhi and has studied yoga anatomy extensively with Iyengar masters Julie Gudmestad and Roger Cole. Margie has also been certified by Dr. Loren Fishman and Ellen Saltonstall to teach Dr. Fishman's "Method of Yoga for Osteoporosis."
Margie recognizes yoga as an exercise in paying attention and enjoys sharing how listening to our bodies, our breath, and our hearts brings about a sense of equanimity and freedom and opens us up to the many possibilities that exist in our world. Margie is most grateful for all that she has learned from other students of life who have played and practiced with her throughout the years. She is married and the mother of two grown children and views every moment as an opportunity to be at one with movement, with breath, with our "Luminous Innerness," and the inherent goodness of life.
