Growing up on a wonderful, slightly crazy, organic farm in the South of Germany, still influences her life and her teaching. Marianne's classes focus on breath and alignment to keep our bodies safe, strong and healthy while maintaining a deep connection to the breath and our deepest self. Teaching her students to skillfully use their bodies: sweat, breathe and break boundaries together. She seeks to help them to thrive in life by nurturing body, mind and soul with yoga, so they step off the mat feeling balanced and live their life to the fullest, most creative and radiant potential.
After completing her 200 hour Yoga teacher training with Yoga Tree in San Francisco she had the honor to study with Jason Crandell for her 500 hour certificate. Going to India where she started studying Radiant Body Yoga with Kia Miller, dived her deeper into the subtler aspects of pranayama, kriya, mantra and meditation.

Radiant Body Yoga (RBY) is a holistic approach to yoga, which has its roots in the ancient Kundalini and Tantric traditions. These practices are designed to awaken each practitioner to their higher nature. They offer a potent combination of physical posture, breath work, kriya, meditation, and chanting. They increase strength, build vitality and create mental clarity. Created by Kia Miller, it integrates 3 key elements: the transformational possibilities of Kundalini Yoga; the challenging and technical precision of Ashtanga and Iyengar Yoga; the power of Prayer, Mantra and Meditation
