Marie Brown Berg M.Ed. is an experienced International Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 500). She holds 5 internationally recognized certifications; Sivananda Yoga Siromani, Sivananda Advanced Raja Yoga, Advanced Relax & Renew Restorative Yoga, Yin Foundations Certification and iRest® Level 1 Yoga Nidra Meditation Teacher.
Marie first discovered Yoga in 1999. The state of mindful awareness and inner quiet she experienced was life changing and her curiosity led her to travel throughout India in 2001 where she stayed in Buddhist Monasteries and traditional Yoga Ashrams to learn more about the practice. She became a certified Yoga Teacher in 2005. Her yoga classes invite us to a quiet space where one can access the subtle body. Each class integrates Asana (postures), Vinyasa (mindful flow), Meditation, Pranayama (breath-work) and Sanskrit Mantras and her teaching style has been described as gentle, meditative and authentic to the yoga tradition. Through breath awareness, an integrated and meditative state is the result of the practice. Her classes are open to beginners and experienced practitioners.
Marie is currently teaching online and in-person in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. She teaches for the YWCA, Saskatoon’s Community Associations, the teachers of the Saskatoon Public Schools and for the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency. Marie served the Yoga Association of Saskatchewan for many years and stands committed to offering the sacred teachings of yoga with integrity to all those who want peace.
