Marie began her journey into health and healing with Russian Kettlebell training where she was a certified RKC for many years. Along the way she became more interested in the healing arts and she began studying Feldenkrais, the Three Principles Psychology and meditation. Her Feldenkrais teacher told her she had a gift for teaching this type of movement and Marie loved teaching it. Marie, could see the link between Feldenkrais (a movement therapy) and the psychology she was studying at the time. It wasn't long afterward that Marie formed her own hybrid therapeutic art called Meditative Movement, a unique combination of Feldenkrais with elements of the Three Principles Psychology and meditation. These components together honor the mental, physical and emotional aspects of healing which Marie sees as fundamental to heath.
Marie teaches in-home private lessons in addition to classes.
