Before I started to practice yoga with Marjorie, I suffered from carpal tunnel syndrome, along with other physical ailments, and was a bit of a mess. Everything hurt, even the smallest daily activities like brushing my teeth and writing. I was constantly in pain, and every activity in my life was a struggle. I saw a number of doctors and was told surgery was inevitable. One doctor said I would have to give up my job, since my day is spent at the computer. I didn’t realize until after I began practicing yoga just how much pain I’d been living with. Shortly after I began to work with Marjorie, I started to experience pain free hours and then entire days. Today, I’m free of pain most every day, even with a busy schedule, which includes my full-time job, which I got to keep, thanks to yoga! Plus I was able to return to my studies and continue my education. Due to yoga, I’m also now able to live without the fear of pain, because I am empowered with the tools to help myself through any painful periods with the practices I learned.

Yoga with Marjorie has helped increase my body awareness. Through yoga, I can feel myself literally settling down, which helps me during the day and helps me to sleep more soundly at night. There are other surprising benefits to yoga, one in particular convinced me it really makes a difference. Last winter, when I arrived for our weekly semi-private evening session, I was starting to come down with a terrible cold and felt awful. After the yoga session with Marjorie, I felt 100% better and never got the cold after all!

Before starting yoga with Marjorie, my body felt weak, and I often experienced pain in my knees. I felt tentative when moving too quickly or hurrying down the stairs to catch the subway in New York City, because I was scared at any moment my knee might give way beneath me. I actually felt old, even though I’m under 40. Yoga has given me greater strength throughout my entire body. It is definitely easier to maintain my weight, and I feel younger and more alive. I no longer feel tentative when I have to hustle around town, as my legs are now stronger, and the pain in my joints has decreased. In addition, as a professional opera singer, the yoga and breathing has been very helpful for my voice. My voice teacher has been very impressed with the progress I’ve made in the way that I use my body. Yoga has become a source of spiritual enrichment and community as well. Quite simply, yoga makes me happy, and taking yoga class with Marjorie is something I love to share with friends.

Marjorie is an amazing teacher. She thoughtfully creates an environment that is inspirational and nurturing. I am so grateful to Marjorie; it is because of her teaching, dedication, and support that yoga has become an integral part of my life. Three years ago, I fell while ice skating. Months later, I began to experience shooting pain in my head. The neurologist found no cause of the pain, but my massage therapist noticed some irregularities and sent me to the chiropractor, who found that I had three muscular and alignment injuries. What I was experiencing was referred to pain in my head yet no pain at the actual sight of the injuries. Unhappy with the thought of chiropractic treatments to correct my alignment, I looked to yoga as an alternative. Fortunately, I found Marjorie at Equinox. At the beginning of each class, she would ask if anyone had any issues or injuries. When I told her about my situation, she was able to observe and evaluate the alignment of my entire body, and through her teaching, I was able to realign my body from the inside. When I was finally free of the pain, I went back to the chiropractor for a follow-up. He was amazed and told me that I was now in perfect alignment and incredibly strong. My massage therapist, who is also a physical therapist and acupuncturist, now recommends alignment-based yoga to his clients. He has seen firsthand how one’s body can heal as it returns to its optimum alignment through these yoga principles.

When I was first introduced to Marjorie’s class by a friend, I had been practicing with different yoga teachers over the years. What Marjorie offered seemed unique. Since the class I take is a therapeutics class, her attention to individual issues is heightened more than usual. My particular issue is a torn ACL, for which I chose not to do surgery. What I continue to learn from Marjorie is a real understanding of how the body moves and what is done habitually to cause pain, and how to work with individual conditions. I’ve learned to feel and find my back and side ribs in breathing. It’s thrilling to internalize her teachings and make them a part of my own consciousness. This all became so apparent when I was commuting between LA and NY and was unable to go to class. I was out of touch with my body and falling too frequently. Now that I’ve been back for over a year, my increased sense of strength and balance is a tribute to Marjorie and her teaching. Also, I returned with a new problem centered on my shoulders. Much work was done to improve this impingement, and Marjorie always offers alternative positions. The light within truly honors the light within, Marjorie.
