About Marie Glanfield

Follow Your Heart
As an ardent lover of movement and the uniqueness of self expression I trained to teach hatha yoga in 2006. I was inspired by living and travelling extensively throughout Asia and Africa. I discovered wherever I went that, despite how culturally diverse communities were, there was an interconnectedness in a mutual desire to understand the inner wisdom of the body, mind and spirit to maintain health and prevent illness.

I continued my yoga studies with many fantastic teachers from diverse backgrounds to discover a deeper understanding of the art of yoga for personal growth and also to share my passion with others. This included vinyasa flow, yin, meditation, trauma sensitive yoga, pregnancy, postnatal and children’s yoga. I now compliment my teachings with Ayurveda, the ancient holistic Indian medical science that connects us with our individual nature to promote good health and longevity.

My approach is to inspire each individual to understand their own potential spiritually and physically through developing a deep listening and receptive yoga practice. My aim is to empower every body to have the confidence and courage to explore and realise their own personal yoga journey that can enhance ease of movement and develop mental and physical strength.

Sequences are creative and varied to open up the potentiality for learning. Yoga classes are small and are uniquely tailored to the needs of the dynamics of each group. For a more bespoke experience, private tuition can be arranged. Classes are held in a beautiful bespoke garden studio just outside of Shaftesbury. The dedicated space is light, warm and peaceful. The view over the Blackmore Vale is simply stunning.
