Marcia Appel, E-RYT 500, YACEP

Marcia has been practicing and studying yoga since 2000. She is a co-leader and senior faculty member of Green Lotus' RYT 240-hour program. Yoga deepens her connection to herself, to others, and to the world around her. Marcia encourages students to try many kinds of classes and deeply believes that yoga asana (poses) are simply an extension and beautiful expression of breath and meditation. In May 2013, she completed a two-year study of the integration of yoga and mindfulness meditation at Spirit Rock Retreat Center in California, earning her 300-hour credentials there from a faculty that included Dr. Richard Miller, Anne Cushman, Janice Gates, Mark Coleman, and Phillip Moffett.. Her other certifications include Judith Lasater’s Relax & Renew (restorative yoga), Baptiste Power Vinyasa (Level One), and iRest ® Level One (Yoga Nidra). Marcia is a partner in Green Lotus with her beloved friend Merry Beth Freienmuth and loves teaching there.
