    Marilyn is fantastic, effective, comprehensive, efficient. She does a full assessment before you begin to determine what your goals are. Even if you're not sure what they are she helps you formulate the ideas that have been rolling around in your head. I constantly worry about my form and wonder "am I doing this right??" and Marilyn is very patient, clear, and encouraging. She motivates me and truly believes in me. If you are looking for someone who understands not only the science, but also the interpersonal techniques of training, look no more. Marilyn will be the key to your success.

    As a fellow personal trainer and exercise instructor, I've experienced my fair share of poor yoga instruction - but Marilyn is the shining exception. She is patient - especially with those of us who are tight and inflexible from overwork in other exercises! - and most of all, she is extremely knowledgeable in her practice. Marilyn works with diverse populations - from older adults to prenatal women to yoga newbies - with finesse and care that really make her stand out in the oversaturated yoga climate of Southern California. I would recommend her to any of my clients.

    I took a yoga class 7 years ago AND really disliked it from one experience. I took a private lesson with Marilyn and found a new love of yoga. She was very patient with me and understanding of how uncoordinated I am. She also helped me with breathing exercises for labor which were very helpful! I highly recommend Marilyn.

    I love this yoga instructor's philosophy of "less is more". She really is able to bring yoga back to how it was meant to be practiced: concentration on your pose, body alignment and breath. The yoga she practices is not the gym mentality of cramming every single yoga pose known to man into an hour session, but really understanding and appreciating what you are doing with your body and your breathing. Highly recommended.
