Marni has been working in the field of health and wellness for over 25 years. Formerly as a group fitness instructor, program supervisor and personal trainer and presently as a yoga teacher and psychotherapist. She holds a master‘s degree in social work from the University of Michigan and has completed 2-200 hour RYT yoga certifications. She has been teaching yoga since 2004 and recently opened Mindful Solutions, a psychotherapy practice in Farmington Hills, Michigan. As a solution focused therapist, she uses mindfulness and progressive relaxation techniques to help clients cope with difficult emotions and improve their relationships. Marni’s background in anatomy and alignment is evident in the way she sequences her yoga flows and guides students in and out of postures. She encourages participants to explore how the physicality of a pose can be used as a means to connect more deeply with themselves. She believes that when we become more present in our bodies and harnesses the power of our breath we can learn to quiet our inner critic and find peace and joy both on and off the yoga mat.
