Marilyn Firchow

Marilyn Firchow has been in the Fitness Industry for 30 years, and in Rehabilitation for 20 years.  When Marilyn first entered the fitness scene she was an aerobic junkie teaching classes in high impact, low impact, and step aerobics, but things have changed…

Seven years ago Marilyn started taking more yoga classes and less cardio.   She discovered that the stress release she felt from Yoga could not only be attained, but would last long after she rolled up her mat.  She found the mind, body, spirit connection in Yoga made her a more centered, relaxed and compassionate person.  The joy and calmness that started to flow into her personal life, was the impetus to train as a Yoga teacher.

Today, as a yoga teacher, Marilyn is able to fulfill her desire to share the gift of strengthening the body, calming the mind, and freeing the spirit.  Marilyn received her 200 hour Yoga Alliance Teacher certification through The Yoga Garden in March 2014, and considers herself fortunate to have studied under Mark Nelson and Chae Yang Bullock.  Marilyn studied Yin Yoga with Daniel Sitaram Das Shankin. Marilyn is certified in Chair Yoga thru Silver Sneakers. She also trained with Bryan Kest and Sean Corne. Marilyn teaches classes in All Levels Vinyasa Flow, Yin Yoga, Therapeutic Yoga, Chair Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Yoga for Beginners, and also teaches private yoga sessions.  The private sessions can be held either in an individual’s home or at the studio.

Marilyn is a licensed Physical Therapist Assistant practicing for 20 years.  She is experienced in every aspect of Rehabilitation, including aquatic and cardiac. Her strong suit is in therapeutic exercise and the ability to modify as appropriate to meet individual needs. Marilyn has used yoga successfully as a means to progress both patients and yoga clients to increase flexibility, strength, and balance safely.

Marilyn invites you to come find the mind, body, spirit connection with her.
