Yoga Student + Teacher of the Month
Spring has sprung in the yoga studio.
No two better than to bring in spring energy are Marie Murphy, who teaches an all levels vinyasa class on Monday and Wednesday at 7:00AM and Saturday at 1:00PM at our San Francisco yoga studio and Scott Jacobs, a dedicated IO yogi who off the mat is a Principal/Owner at Benjamin Madison Wealth Advisors.
TEACHER OF THE MONTH Marie Murphy
IDEA OF HAPPINESS Feeling productive and engaged with the world around me, and connected to the people in my life.
FAVORITE VACATION Hard to pick. If we’re talking about the past, I was in the Peace Corps in Zambia and had some pretty magical adventures throughout Southern Africa. If we’re talking present day, any vacation that involves me going on it is my favorite.
FAVORITE MUSIC TO PLAY IN Joan Miro, David Byrne, Enrique Muthuan
BEST AFTER YOGA SNACK After I teach at 7:00 a.m., I usually head across the street to Jane for their chai. Since it’s homemade, it varies from batch to batch, but on a good day, it’s life-changing.
FAVORITE POSE After years of dislike, I have really come to appreciate ardha chandrasana.
SUPERHERO TALENT I make fabulous lasagna.
OFF-THE-MAT PASSIONS Cooking, wine, eating, good times with good friends, my mister man, my doggie, and, of course, doing bodywork.
MANTRA If not you, then who? If not now, then when?
STUDENT OF THE NONTH Scott Jacobs
HOMETOWN Nanuet, New York
SUPER HERO TALENT I can usually help someone feel better about themselves in one meeting due to a positive energy exchange.
HEROES My Dad, Ira Jacobs, retired school teacher from the Bronx, NY now in West Palm Beach just chillin’.
FAVORITE VACATION Somewhere warm with a foreign currency, foreign cuisine, foreign language and no family…and I love my family, just not on vacation.
TEACHERS WHO INSPIRE YOU My first yoga instructor and dear friend Caley Yavorsky and I adore Allie Edison.
OFF THE MAT PASSIONS Helping the less fortunate, animals, yoga, traveling, peanut butter and Maggie…not necessarily in that order.
THINGS THAT MAKE YOU HAPPY my cats Jackson and Suzy and my wonderful girlfriend Maggie…did I already mention peanut butter?
