Alexis approaches each bodywork session with respect, an open heart, and a clear intention for the healing and well-being of her clients.
Since then, I’ve studied with numerous wonderful teachers in a variety of yogic disciplines, and I enjoy sharing their wisdom with my students. My classes incorporate elements of Iyengar, Ashtanga, and Qigong into a flowing vinyasa practice that provides options to engage everyone from the new yogi to the advanced practitioner. I’ve taught yoga on both coasts and recently returned to California after ten great years in New England.
As a massage therapist, I also use a multidisciplinary style with a focus full-body function. I’m trained in Swedish, sports massage, deep tissue, neuromuscular, and trigger point release. My massages incorporate the elements and styles that suit the client’s specific needs and requests.
I’m thrilled to join the great people at Ocean Yoga and look forward to joining the Pacifica community on this shared journey to optimum health!
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.
