Marni Salerno (they/them)
Marni is thankful to have found yoga in a time in their life when it was very difficult to love and accept themself. Being genderqueer, the idea of embracing both the masculine and feminine within yoga helped Marni find truth and peace underneath dominant societal narratives.
Marni is a self proclaimed master of none, wearing many hats around the Penobscot Bay. They are a homesteader, landscaper and dispenser of beverages. They enjoy doing dog acrobatics with their rescue Finn, getting lost in the woods, and finding stones with tiny granite stripes.
Marni's Training and Certifications Include:
200hr Teacher Training with My Vinyasa Practice
Yoga Sutra Study with Bhavani Maki
Danielle, in addition to teaching yoga, is a dancer and clinical social worker —all powerful pathways she believes, in aiding us to befriend our hearts, minds, and bodies.
Living with and managing a chronic illness, Danielle understands how unique and precious one’s embodied experience is. By sharing a heart-centered practice that is slow, subtle, and sometimes strong, she aims to cultivate a warm space in which others can access and trust profound wisdom of the Self that exists always underneath the demands of busy lives, the influence of environment, and the conditioning and/or harm of various sociopolitical systems.
Danielle’s Training and Certifications Include:
200hr Teacher Training at Sangha Studio
300hr Teacher Training with Amy Ippoliti
Yoga Nidra with Sagel Urlacher
Yin Yoga with Josh Summers
