Barbara Marshall, MA

Barb first practiced yoga as a teenager and has been teaching yoga since 2002. A graduate of the teacher training program of the prestigious Esther Myers Studio in Toronto, she has over 1,000 hours of training and is a registered teacher through the Yoga Network of Canada and a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists.

For Barb yoga is “self transformation through awareness”. In yoga you become aware of how you breathe, think and move. With this awareness, change happens. Yoga can literally change your life! Barb teaches in a gentle manner with attention to the individual needs of students. She is inspired by the work of Vanda Scaravelli, whose influential book Awakening the Spine demonstrates that yoga is more about “undoing” than “doing”, and that age is no barrier to the valuable practice of yoga.

Barb is currently developing a practice of Compassionate Communication or Non-Violent Communication (NVC – see which she sees as the “yoga of communication”.  She has studied with NVC trainers Thom Bond in New York and Glenda Mattinson in Toronto.

Barb is deeply grateful to her teachers and to students who want to explore all aspects of yoga.
