“You should never hesitate to trade your cow for a handful of magic beans”
Marley Vigdorth is a 200hr-ERYT certified yoga instructor currently living in Cape Town. A student of yoga since 2001, she was originally drawn to the physical benefit of yoga, and while the asana practice continue to excite, frustrate, and delight her, it is the connection to a more soulful life which truly inspires her.
In March of 2006, Marley completed the 200 hr CorePower Yoga Teacher Training, and has gone on to fulfill the 200hr Hot Yoga Training and Hot Power Fusion Training in Denver, CO. Continued education with Ana Forrest, Level 2 teacher training with Lisa Richards, and a pre and postnatal certification helped continually refine her abilities as an instructor. Presently she is completing her 500hr certification through Shiva Rea’s Prana Flow Yoga school. Further study of Sanskrit and Vedic Philosophy with Dr. Katyayani Poole, Tantric philosophy with Dr. Douglas Brooks, and a training in India focused on Tantric and Vedic practices led by Dr. David Frawley has broadened her perspective on the integration of yoga as an every moment practice. Interested in other healing modalities, she is also certified as a level 1 and 2 Thai Yoga Massage Therapist and Master Reiki practitioner.
Marley has been teaching yoga full time since 2006 and facilitating yoga teacher trainings for several years. In 2010 Marley became an ambassador for lululemon athletica clothing.
