Marnie Quinn - owner + meditations, ceremonies, movement

FullSizeRender 2.jpg

Marnie always dreamed of living in NYC and working in Fashion.  She fulfilled that dream above and beyond any expectations.  But she realized that this dream was leaving her with an empty feeling and was no longer aligned with who she really was.  As her soul was calling her to do something different, deeper and with more meaning, she went within to uncover the next steps on her path.  She dove into her yoga & meditation practices.  She began on a shamanic path.  She uncovered the many layers of her being until she found her most authentic self.  Through this transformation (or remembering) process she had many healers, guides and classes to help her along the way.  Because of the powerful impact yoga, meditation, holistic health & nutrition, shamanic practices and healing modalities had on her she decided to open a center to give back what she had been given on her path to transformation.  (and as these things go she had a Dream that she opened a container for the people who would come in in need of healing, growth, transformation and were curious about The Great Mystery).  

in 2015 Marnie was certified in Usui Ryoho Reiki.  In 2017 she became a Reiki Master Teacher.  In 2015, She studied with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies in Princeton, NJ, with the Q’ero and The Four Winds Society at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY and did a 10 day intense shamanic retreat with the Shipibo tribe in Peru. She also dove into Folk Herbalism.  In 2016 she became a certified holistic health coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.

Marnie has been dancing since the age of 2.  She was in ballet 3-5x a week until the age of 13 when she decided she wanted more freedom of expression where she moved to jazz dance, then modern & contemporary in high school and college.  She choreographed & instructed multiple color & winterguards each season from the years 1998 - 2005 when she returned to New York to pursue her fashion dreams.  but she never stopped dancing.  in new york when she could make time, she took classes most famously at the Joffrey School of Ballet & Alvin Ailey School of Dance.  in 2014 she finally went deep with a yoga practice that she had been dabbling in since college and hasn't turned back since.  Marnie knows how important self expression is through movement and how imperative it is to get deep into our bodies and listen to its language every day.  the physical vessel houses our soul and must be taken care of on this beautiful spiritual path.      

Reviews

Spiritual, Emotional, Intellectual.

"Marnie has always been an excellent mirror for me. I believe that the best people in our lives often help us grow through their own evolution and I have had the privilege to witness Marnie's progressive and authentic path.  Sound actionable tools rooted in a blend of advanced spiritual, emotional, and intellectual principles."

She helped me see....

"I am constantly grateful for my connection with Marnie. We crossed paths when I was at a very challenging point in my life. She helped me to see my situation in a different light and to approach it with confidence and calm. She has an amazing way of seeing the world and helping you approach difficult people or situations. I walk away from each conversation with her feeling refreshed and ready to take on whatever life throws at me. It is hard to imagine not having her be a part of my life. I find myself bringing her up in conversations and sending friends who are looking for a positive conversation or a little direction her way frequently. "

Marnie helped me go deep inside myself...

“Marnie has helped me go deep inside myself, asking the important questions like, 'What do you love? What do you want to achieve? What are your strengths? Weaknesses? What are your goals? What kind of environment do you need?' All of us know the questions to ask, but very few of us know the next steps we need to take in order to close an old, rusty door and open a new, fresh one. 
She walked me through the questions, the answers.
I am so grateful to her for all the energy, love and encouragement she gave me. I believe every single person, whether you are happily seated in your life or not, could benefit from her tremendous professionalism and heart. "

Mishel Wolfe - Yoga & Reiki

IMG_0248.jpg

Mishel began practicing yoga off and on 10 years ago when physical pain became immobilizing. She had many injuries, both physical and emotional, which surfaced in the body as severe pain. At first, she didn’t think that she would be able to do yoga because of the injuries and her body type. After finally committing to a regular practice, she realized that yoga is more about the internal journey to peace and self-love. Along the way she discovered that there are no “limitations,” only opportunities for growth.  Yoga is truly a practice for everyBODY.  Mishel decided to fulfill her dream of becoming a certified yoga instructor by receiving her Yoga Alliance RYT 200HR certification in 2017. She has used her experience as a college professor to tailor each of her yoga classes to the students in the room, making adjustments to the flow and offering modifications along the way. She strives to make her classes challenging, but approachable to all body types and physical abilities so that everyone can enjoy the benefits of this practice.  

Mishel is also an energy worker and seeks to learn several more modalities to incorporate into body, mind, and spirit healing. She is a Master Level Usui Reki practitioner, intuitive healer, and Womb Keeper.

She believes that by combining energetic modalities with a regular yoga practice, people can learn how to heal themselves. (Also see Reiki Bio on Services Page)

Spiridoula Varelis - Yoga

Spiridoula was trained in the spring of 2014 under instructors Megan Doll and David Frenk at the YourYoga Studio in Minneapolis. Acquiring her RYT 200, she leads a dynamic vinyasa template. Her classes emphasize body mechanics, energetic points of contact, fascia release, and alignment. Spiridoula’s health journey began in 2012 when she explored the backcountry teaching yoga in the mountains (of B.C. Canada and New Mexico). Shortly after she met a neo-native medicine teacher off the Mescalero Reservation who passed on ancient knowledge of living in balance and beauty; taught to cleanse a space and act as a tether for ceremony.  Spiridoula highly values the Earth. A love for plants exploded through her personal procuring of herbal medicines/tinctures. Through the intricacies of body detoxification, her commitment to healthful living seeps from her heat building and peace garnering yoga classes. Spiritual concept is a vital thread to the physical practice, and she strives to spread the power of optimal dwelling. Outside of teaching yoga, Spiridoula is finishing her degree in Integrative Healthcare— aspiring to be a naturopathic doctor. Dedicated to the healing, she is also Reiki II certified under the instructor Marnie Quinn, who adheres to Dr. Mikao Usui Sensai’s teachings.

Sydney Zwicker - Qoya

Zwicker_Sydney_Pic.jpg

Sydney's path as a healer has been one of self-discovery, healing and empowerment. She is a Qoya teacher, a Yoni Crystals practitioner, and a certified Reiki master, with a background in integrative body therapy. As a Qoya teacher, Sydney believes that movement is medicine. Qoya is based on the idea that through movement we remember. In a Qoya class, we remember our essence, as wise, wild, and free. We do this by exploring the Wisdom of Yoga, the Wildness that comes in free movement and dance, and the Freedom that can be expressed through sensual/feminine movement in a safe circle. There is no 'one' way, nor 'right' way to heal. Every person is different. Sydney works with students using breath, the body, and intentional movement to feel what is working and to understand what may no longer serve each individual. Her intentions as a healer is to give students the tools to journey into wholeness. Her work is centralized around themes of intimacy, sensuality and intuitive self nourishment.
