Does this sound like you?

  • You often feel stressed and worried.
  • You don’t sleep well.
  • Life sometimes feels out of your control.
  • You have difficulty staying focused and being productive.
  • You feel isolated and irritated but don’t know why.
  • You feel paralyzed by fear, doubt, and sadness.

The really important things in life are an inside job.

During this challenging time where we’ve been riding the emotional COVID rollercoaster, meditation has truly been a life raft for me, and I am so grateful for the faithful companion of my practice. I can’t imagine my life without meditation.

Before Meditation

It wasn’t always this way though. Before I found my meditation mojo, I practiced off and on for years. I struggled with trying to meditate because my mind raced like the Indy 500 speedway. I was a type A+++ and sitting still made my skin crawl. I constantly judged my meditation as good or bad and decided that I just wasn’t any good at it, so why waste my time.  

Life-Changing Teacher

Then I found a teacher who changed my mindset and in the process changed my life. Not only did I learn I had the wrong expectations about meditation, but I also learned that all the really important things in life are an inside job. Like peace, compassion, kindness, courage, love and so many more qualities. 

I made friends with my mind and learned that meditation helps you cultivate these qualities in yourself and in your life when you take the time to consistently turn inward. I have developed tools and techniques so I never miss my morning meditation, and I want to share them with others in this course. When we consistently show up for ourselves the benefits of meditation show up in your life in numerous ways.

A consistent meditation practice delivers life-changing results.  Are you ready?

Power of the Pause is for beginners or anyone who wants to get back on track with meditation.

Meet Your Guide

I have always enjoyed life… but not until I started to consistently meditate did I fall deeply in love with the full spectrum of my life.

Hi, I’m Marsha, a yoga and meditation teacher, an intuitive artist, and a seeker of optimal health and wellness. I am also a lover of dark chocolate, good music, green smoothies, and sacred play.

Whether it is through a sweaty yoga practice, a gratitude meditation, or a conversation over tea about passion for life, my mission is to lead people towards their innate inner peace and joy.

Teaching yoga and meditation for 30 years, I am continually inspired by the beauty of the human spirit, the ability of the body to heal, and the innate unconditional bliss that lies in each of us. I have certifications in meditation from The McLean Meditation Academy and The Chopra Center.

I teach yoga and meditation at Fusion Studio which I opened 20 years ago and have had the pleasure of teaching over 1000 people to meditate through my studio. Now I am excited to share this experience online with you.

One of my strengths as a teacher is that I can relate to the beginner who finds the practice of meditation challenging or intimidating and wants to give up. Because I understand what it takes to make meditating feel easy and natural, I can show you how to meditate in the most simplistic way and help you develop a consistent home practice.

What People Are Saying



“This course helped me to understand the why and how of meditation.  It gave me a good foundation on why meditation is so beneficial both physically and mentally.  The course also helped me to understand the basics of establishing a daily meditation practice.  I have experienced a greater sense of inner calm during turbulent times, increased patience with people around me, a heightened sense of gratitude, and a better overall mindset, all thanks to my daily meditation practice and to my overall understanding of the power of meditation. 

Loren L Coppock CPCU, CLU

Meditation for me is the chance to learn to relax and do absolutely nothing for a few minutes each day. To release some of the tension and breathe. It is a life-changing experience.  It all started with a class called “The Power of Pause” with Marsha Nieland.

All my life I have taken courses and gone to seminars where you are encouraged to push yourself further. How can I get more results with a few changes in my current lifestyle. Ultimately that meant adding more time and concentration to a life that was already crowded. Then add the pressure that, “others who are successful are doing it”.. why cant you??

The introduction of Meditation into my life is a gift I am giving to myself. Who doesn’t need or want to be more mindful… who doesn’t want a chance to be more relaxed?

I plan to make it a part of my life from here on. If you haven’t tried it should .. you will never regret it.
