In her work and personal life, she is dedicated to enhancing awareness and connection with oneself, with others and the world.
Marianne has studied and practiced meditation since 1996. Her teachers have included Pema Chodron, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Jack Kornfield, and Thich Nhat Hahn. She is the founder of the Mindful Education Project and has been teaching Mindfulness to children, youth, and adults since 2007. She has taught the Mindfulness curriculum she developed for students and teachers in elementary and high schools, at California State University of Monterey Bay, and at Middlebury Institute for International Studies in Monterey. Her "Mindful Painting: Presence in the Moment" workshops and retreats in California and San Miguel de Allende have been exceptionally well-received. "Being fully present is an essential part of enhancing the creative process and deepening relationships. Relaxing the mind and opening the heart lead to profound engagement with oneself, others and the environment. From this field, fearless expression, deep wisdom and new ideas emerge and evolve.” www.mindfuleducationproject.net and www.mindfulpainting.com
Discovering and becoming aware of ourselves and the beauty that surrounds us is probably one of the most difficult skills that we can develop.
Through the practice of yoga we can develop and strengthen this awareness of self and become more centered in all of our daily activities.
Going on a short trip or vacation allows us the chance to shed our daily routines. Typically we become more open to new experiences, trying different foods and learning about different cultures.
Here in San Miguel de Allende I teach yoga, Mexican food cooking classes, and lead tours of the Charco Botanical Garden
Yoga classes offered are both group and private. I am an experienced yoga teacher with over 1500 hours (12 years) of teaching experience. I regularly attend yoga conferences in the USA, and have studied with both B.K.S. Iyengar and Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois. I teach a Hatha Vinyasa style, sort of an Astanga / Iyengar blend, but really I teach to the students I have in the class at that moment.
Additionally, I teach private small group cooking classes, Mexican food of course.
I also lead walking tours of the Charco del Ingenio, the 170 acre Botanical Garden and Nature Preserve here in San Miguel de Allende.
