Margie began her yoga practice in 2011. She tried yoga as a way to alleviate significant back issues caused by years of running. Initially her practice continued her lifelong passion for exercise but grew into a strong connection with the yoga community and a way to manage anxiety and stress. After 7 years of practice she completed her 200-RYT with Jaimis Huff and Jen Busco in May of 2018. Inspired by Jaimis, she continued with 50 Hours of Rocket training led by Pat McCleaf in October 2018.
She made the decision to teach because she wants to share her passion with others. The focus of her teaching is to provide a challenging but fun and upbeat experience for all. She has seen how yoga brings people together and believes that everyone can benefit from a consistent practice. Her practice has profoundly shifted her mindset and how she approaches challenging situations.
Margie is inspired by her husband and four children and when not practicing yoga can be found hiking the trails in Charlotte with her Labradoodle Mila, gardening and cheering on the Tar Heels!
