YOGA with Margie Satinsky, RYT

My Philosophy

  • Yoga has great benefits for people of all ages, regardless of previous yoga experience and physical limitations.
  • One-size doesn’t fit all; I love modifications and options!
  • Variety is the spice of life. Bodies aren’t the same every minute of every day, and neither is yoga.
  • I blend many yoga traditions: each class combines breathing with proper alignment (Iyengar), slow flow (Vinyasa), and holding poses to open connective tissue (Yin).
  • Good yoga classes respond to the needs of the students, not the teacher.

My Students

  • Many levels—from beginner to advanced
  • Women and men
  • All ages—teens through the 80s
  • Cancer survivors
  • All kinds of bodies—flexible and stiff
