Marsha Engle

Yoga Instructor

I am a psychotherapist in private practice who blends my knowledge of cognitive therapy with my knowledge of yoga and meditation to facilitate healing at multiple levels. I am the co-founder of The Mindful Living Institute. I am married, have a son and daughter-in-'love' and recently became the grandmother of baby Emma.

Classes at Bamboo:

  • Foundations
  • Meditation techniques for Yoga Teacher Training

Teaching Style:

Fun and playful; energetic, yet calming; encourage students to create a friendly internal environment - release self-criticism and judgement - and to be light-hearted on and off the mat.

Students that would enjoy Marsha's classes:

People who are new to yoga; anyone who would like to go back to the 'basics.'

What does yoga mean to Marsha?

Yoga is my re-boot opportunity - my physical, emotional, and spiritual 'adjustment'. On my mat, I connect back to who I am, beyond the multiple roles I play in daily life. I shift to clarity, perspective and wisdom, even when life is confusing and difficult. Yoga lifts my mood and makes my body feel wonderful.

Experience and Certifications:

  • Mindful Yoga Therapy (MYT)
  • Yoga and Mood Management training with Amy Weintraub
  • Registered Yoga Teacher 200-hour from Studio Bamboo
  • Mindfulness Meditation training

Favorite Asana:

Virabhadrasana ll (Warrior ll) helps me to connect to my inner strength when I feel anxious or unsteady; Eka Pada Rajakapotasana (Pigeon) counters all the sitting I do as a therapist.
