Serenity School of Yoga is a phenomenal training program that will provide you with the confidence and knowledge to not only enhance and inspire your students, but to transform your own practice as well. As a student, I always want to learn from Marcie Evans! Marcie is an extremely clear and motivating teacher. She will provide you with a depth and understanding of the biomechanics of each pose that help you feel them in a new way. Marcie has helped make me a stronger teacher by giving me the tools I need to succeed in any situation, on or off the mat. She is very accommodating for all types of students and honors each individual's level of practice and limitations. Her warmth and deep commitment to the practice always brings out the best in me and makes the study of wellness and yoga fun!
My yoga journey has exposed me to instruction at weeklong intensives in Mexico and Montana; workshops in Minnesota, Illinois and Iowa; Ashrams in Virginia and Colorado. Some of those teachers are regular contributors to yoga publications and occasionally appear on their covers. My choice to study for my teaching certificate with Marcie Evans at Serenity Yoga was made in large part because she embodied the teaching expertise, depth of knowledge and caring attitude I learned to associate with those esteemed yogis. May your journey be enhanced with Marcie as well.

Though yoga has been around for a very long time, I did not really understand the concepts or the practice, but knew yoga was something I needed and wanted. I chose to become a student of Marcie’s because I knew she would be very comprehensive in her approach to training. Marcie is excellent at blending activities required of the course and employs a variety of strategies and techniques to keep students engaged in learning. In addition, she is very sensitive and flexible to the unique needs of each student. Marcie’s training program provided me a solid base of knowledge from which to continue my personal yoga journey. After training was completed, I realized the mental practice was just as enjoyable as the physical practice. Yoga has impacted my life in so many positive ways such as improving relationships and interactions with others. Yoga has helped me to realize that who I am is enough.
If you're looking for personal, hands-on yoga teacher training, Serenity is your place and Marcie is your teacher. I went into this class expecting a fuller, deeper knowledge of asana. I got that, and SO much more. Marcie encourages you to push your boundaries, physically, energetically, in a myriad of ways. Upon completion of training, I realize that my shoulders, my eyes, and my heart have been opened....and there's still room to grow.
After taking Marcie's 200 hour teacher training, I felt a great sense of accomplishment. The weekend training sessions were intensive with a great deal of emphasis on anatomy and safety for the student. I learned everything I needed to lead a fulfilling and safe class to my students.
