I’ve been a a yoga student for almost a decade. I have 3 boys and a husband who are very into sports and I didn’t grow up that way, playing or competing in everything. Marsha and Anusara yoga have taught me life rules to deal with all of that..hug to the midline..or get balance in your life..if you fall one way or the other, it’s not the end of the world, keep hugging and and you’ll be fine. Yoga keeps me balanced, toned and the more I do, the healthier I eat and feel. Contrary to what people may think, Anusara yoga is for everyone..runners, inactive people, outgoing and shy people…anyone who wants to have fun and feel better and get fit at the same time.
I started at Fusion last fall and love it. I have a pinched nerve in my back which requires some medical attention on a regular basis – and my hopes are that the stretching and strengthening will in time alleviate the problem. Even if it does not, I feel that the benefits derived from my sessions are still worthwhile. Some days I come into my class thinking I don’t know how I am going to make it through – I’m tired – I’m stiff – and I would rather just go home. I leave with increased energy and a relaxed mental state. Thanks to Bev (and Brenda), I can move into positions and stretch further than I ever thought possible. Thank you all for all you do.
Who knew that an injury could turn into such a blessing? When I came to Fusion over a year and a half ago with pain no other practitioner could understand, Marsha empowered me, through the Anusara principles of proper body alignment, to become pain-free. Now, as I continue to put into practice what I have learned, when I am in pain, I recognize the signal and can calmly work towards healing. From the very beginning I have felt welcomed and inspired in ways I could never have imagined. Thank you for sharing your gifts with your community; we are all richer for it.
I was diagnosed with MS about 3 years ago. Shortly after my diagnosis, two different friends suggested yoga might help me with muscle tightness, spasticity and balance issues that I was experiencing. Both friends suggested Fusion Studio. I have been attending yoga classes there for about two and a half years and don’t want to think of what shape I’d be in without it. Marsha is very willing to help me adapt poses that I can’t quite do because of MS limitations. She does so with grace and kindness which is much appreciated. Yoga not only helps me with physical stretching and flexibility it clears my mind and keeps me positive and mentally healthy.
A friend suggested I join her for yoga class as a means to get together once a week. Little did I know how life-changing it would be. In addition to “opening up & awakening” the body it does the same for the mind. Marsha, Bev & Rachel all have their unique styles but I love the individual perspective each brings to my practice. I try to take that perspective & apply it in my life.
Yoga has been a part of my life now for almost 10 years. I started because I felt I was loosing flexibility.
My practice has improved not only my strength and flexibility but it has given me more energy as well.
I have always said the best I feel all week is when I leave my Monday nite class. It relieves the stress of the day and invigorates me, mind and body. It gives me a renewed spirit and vitality.
I don’t know how I could ever quit at this point.
Oh, the places Yoga has taken this 67 year old body. Without Yoga, I can’t imagine how I would be able to motivate daily – both physical and mental. Yoga has kept me in tune with the earth, and flexible enough to enjoy it.
Marsha’s kindness & yoga knowledge is unsurpassed by anyone I’ve taken yoga from in the last 12 years! Her view on life, even thru its ups and downs is always joyful and inspiring! After each class I’m renewed and ready to face the interesting aspects that life can bring. My first retreat in Mexico with her was truly a life changing event…from the karmic surroundings to her fun-filled and life-affirming classes….it was truly a fabulous experience!
