Marcia opened Shri Yoga Center in October, 2011 with the intention of creating the kind of studio in which she herself would like to practice—one with the best teachers, a beautiful, clean, new space, and lots of positive energy. In her classes, Marcia likes to focus on developing deep core strength, toning and strengthening the lower body, increasing flexibility and stability, and improving alignment. Marcia wants each student to feel energized, uplifted, strong, and relaxed after her classes. To help keep her classes fun and exciting, Marcia arranges a new upbeat playlist and new creative core strength sequence every week.
After graduating from Northwestern University, where she studied art history, Marcia became a certified personal trainer. Her passion for health soon led her to yoga and to become a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with the Yoga Alliance—an accreditation she has held for 15 years. Through a combination of completing three 200-hour yoga teacher training programs, yoga workshops, and committed daily practice, Marcia has come to understand and to appreciate a wide variety of approaches to yoga, which helps her to better serve the individual needs of each of her students. She describes the style of yoga she teaches as a challenging flow that is still accessible for most practitioners.
Marcia is from Highland Park and currently lives in Wilmette with her husband Thaddeus and their toddler son, Teddy.
