From the desk of Marjorie Clapp, RYT...
I recently sat down with the staff at OMBE so they can get to know a little more about me as a yoga instructor so I thought I'd share some of that with you.
How long have you been teaching yoga?
I completed my training in 2008 and have been teaching ever since.
What inspired you to teach / why do you teach?
I started doing yoga my freshman year of college as a form of physical therapy for a back injury. After months in a brace with little to no improvement, I stumbled into my first yoga class. I instantly loved the way that yoga made me feel: it built me up instead of breaking me down. Over time, I healed my back and strengthened myself in ways I can't even explain. I owe yoga my health and sanity and I love sharing the practice with others.
What classes/styles of yoga do you teach?
What inspires you to practice?
Something happens during the practice that shifts your entire frame of thought. I never walk out of a yoga class in the same state that I walked in and I see that the good things I do for myself on the mat translate to all aspects of life. What can I say, I love yoga!
Whether you share my love for yoga or just want to know more about it, I'm happy to meet with you for a complimentary 30-minute demo. During this session, we will meet to discuss your goals and see how yoga can become a part of your lifestyle. Book online for any private demo, session or yoga class in our Boston yoga studio or contact OMBE for additional information.
