Mindful Flow


This class is taught by:

Marianne Linn

Born and raised in Germany, Marianne discovered the seeds of yoga, meditation and bodywork while traveling extensively in Asia. She has been studying and practicing yoga and meditation for over 20 years. In 1994, she was certified with the Sivananda Vedanta Yoga Society in Austria and continued her studies in the Iyengar and Astanga Vinyasa traditions, completing the teacher-training program at the Iyengar Institute in San Francisco. Marianne has been a student of Shandor Remete for over ten years and his Shadow Yoga greatly influences her practice and teaching. Her study of T'ai Chi and Qi Gong has also deepened her awareness of and connection to the presence of the universal life force energy. Marianne’s asana teachings draw from the essential elements of many great teachers such as Shandor Remete, Ana Forest, Andre Lappa, Sarah Powers, Paul Grilley, Doug Keller, S.N.Goenka and Adyashanti, as well as from her own experience as a Bodyworker and from her study of the Nature of Mind.

Marianne’s classes provide a supportive and light-hearted atmosphere where students are encouraged to learn to explore the harmonics of postural alignment and the connection between body, breath and mind. At the beginning of the month Marianne creates and offers a new vinyasa sequence, where one's focus on transitions, the "going in to" and "coming out of" a posture is as important as being in the posture. The practice becomes a meditation in motion. Marianne designs her classes with experienced beginners and intermediate level students in mind, although beginners and all sincere students are welcome. Marianne has been a certified Bodywork Practitioner since 1996. She offers Shiatsu, Therapeutic Thai Massage, Deep Tissue, Chi Nei Tsang, Prenatal Massage, and On-Site Chair Massage. Marianne is also available for Somatic Yoga Therapy and Private yoga coaching sessions.

 

 

Marianne will guide you through a flowing, intentionally challenging, slower-paced sequence of asanas, linking intentional breath with conscious movement and present mind.
Using a carefully, newly-designed sequence each month, your practice can become a pathway of discovery. Mindfulness grows more present through a playful exploration balancing effort and ease. Through skillful attention to these carefully crafted sequences, we build strength where we find weakness and increase openness where tension and holding patterns are found.

You will be encouraged to build greater sensitivity to body sensations, to stay present to your breath and to deeply connect with the present moment, resting in self awareness.
Marianne's steady presence and guidance, through both hands-on and verbal instruction, offer precise body alignment, as well a safe place to explore and expand into your own practice. The practice is open to all levels.
