Mari’s yoga is for everyone, beginner or advanced, women and men alike!
Stretching your body after the hike and really focusing on your breathe will allow you to be present within yourself and your surroundings. The closeness to the elements supports this greatly! You are encouraged to practice without a mat for once, straight on the ‘flat’ big rock, it works! Slight unevenness will make you even more aware of the position of your body and will add a little extra something to focus on besides your beathe. While encouraging her students to touch upon their personal limits, Mari always reminds to keep in mind we are working with the body and breath, not against it. Besides the physical bending, folding and twisting, yoga on rocks may also stretch your mind by asking you to challenge your beliefs about yourself, your body and your consciousness.

“Amidst the sounds of the birds calling, the creek rushing and the wind blowing through the pines, Mari leads through a gentle, yet focused routine that engages our bodies and keeps our minds present. The warm rocks, with the sun shining down, was incredibly grounding. Mari is engaged, responsive and very caring in her leadership. Her reflections really resonate with me as well as the recommendations she gives to us for leaning into our personal practice. I can say fully that Mari’s Yoga On Rocks is one of the best yoga classes that I have taken and I look forward to continuing to practice with her.”
Brenna Lanton

“Mari has a mindful presence. She is confident and her movements are inspiring. Her presence reminds me of the bear totem: She is calm, grounded, mysterious, gracious, but alert at the same time. She has a motherly caring warm energy, I feel safe in her classes.”
