“You express all that is beautiful so purely. Thank you for your warrior strength, your teachings, your guidance, your humor, your tenderness. You are a gift to all.”
Marco is a messenger of yoga. His teachings follow the Krishnamacharya tradition. He trained to be a teacher under the guidance of Chuck Miller and Maty Ezraty, creators of YogaWorks, in Los Angeles in 2003. For the last fourteen years, Marco has cultivated a vital and rewarding yoga experience throughout New York City in studios such as YogaWorks, ISHTA, Pure Yoga, and Equinox. Recently honored as one of the “100 Most Influential Yoga Teachers in America” by Sonima, Marco currently teaches at Studio Greene Soho and Studio 382 UWS, as well as hosting international and domestic Raja Yoga Retreats. Marco is developing Om Terra, a teacher training and yoga lifestyle immersion program, at Metta Earth Institute this August. He practices at the Iyengar Institute of New York.
The class is an inward journey using the science of Raja Yoga. Explore Sun Salutations with bandhas and ujjayi breath, fundamentals of the Ashtanga yoga system taught by the late Pattabhi Jois. Follow intelligent sequencing from the Ashtanga and Iyengar traditions. The poses are held to explore expansion and extension and to allow the student time to incorporate Iyengar principles of precision and alignment. The teaching adjusts to the individual, a belief practiced in Viniyoga. This transcendental method of involution to achieve evolution will bring us in contact with our layers of existence, koshas, to realize awareness and consciousness necessary to experience sukkha.
