  • Marjorie Nass

    In Marjorie's quest for health and wellness, she found yoga and was surprised at how effectively the poses got her out of her head. The benefits of yoga were so profound for her that she wanted to share its healing effects with others. Thus, she began her path as a yoga teacher. When her yoga studies led her to Ayurveda, she started folding India’s mind-body science into her personal practice, along with her classes and workshops.

Costa Rica is a destination internationally renowned for its friendly and genuine people and spectacular nature. While it may seem remote, Costa Rica is easily accessible from the United States and Canada and attracts more eco-friendly and holistically oriented tourism each year.

Costa Rica occupies a territory of around 20,000 square miles in the southern part of Central America and includes several small islands mostly on the Pacific side. The country is only about 200-mile long and 70-mile wide at the narrowest part with 2 long coastlines.

Even though Costa Rica is a very small country and only accounts for about 0.25% of world’s landmass, it has almost 5% of the world’s biodiversity. Much of the country is set aside forever into protected national parks, wildlife refuges, and nature reserves.

    "Initially, I began taking Marjorie’s New York City yoga classes and found that her online courses are a way of taking the yoga off the mat. Through what I learned in her tele-courses, I am taking better care of myself, cooking more, and sharing some of the simple tips with my 9-year-old daughter. The changes I make impact her health for the better, as well as my own."

    "Marjorie’s alignment teachings have helped me manage TMJ (temporomandibular joints) pain. After taking one of her classes, I was given the tools I needed to find ease in my shoulder and neck muscles. I found incredible length throughout my spine and the quality of my breath was enhanced. My home practice has deepened and transformed since I started taking classes with Marjorie."

    "Marjorie is a gifted teacher with an eagle’s eye and a healer’s heart. I especially enjoy the semi-private classes at her lovely home studio. It is the best combination of personalized attention with the energy of like-minded yogis. And Dempsey (her dog) is always available for an assist when you need him!"
