Corinne’s love of yoga spans nearly 20 years. She realized the practice was special from her very first class and shortly thereafter knew she would one day teach yoga so she could share its many benefits with others.
Community is important to Corinne, so she is excited to be on the Alchemy House schedule and teach yoga in Atlantic Highlands, where she lives. When she’s not on the mat, she’s likely hard at work as part of Slack’s leadership team, where she infuses mindfulness and the many things she’s learned through yoga into how she leads others. She also loves to hike, bike, stand up paddleboard, travel as much as she can, and cook. In fact, she and her partner are in the process of writing a vegetarian cookbook.
Corinne’s classes are challenging, but accessible to all levels. Her sequences tend to focus on heart and hip-opening, dynamic movement, and always draw attention to the breath.

Marcie believes that yoga is an opportunity to find joy and peace in movement. She practiced yoga for the first time in 2001 and found that it gave her a sense of grounding, happiness and fulfillment. Later through her personal recovery journey, she developed a meditation practice that helped her to develop a better understanding of her body, mind and emotions.
In addition, the learnings that she gained through mindfulness, strengthened her asana experience and propelled her to participate in Tula Yoga’s 200 Hour Teacher Training in 2020. Marcie guides yoga, both in studio and on the beach, and meditation practices with The Phoenix Sober Active Community.
She brings her intention to serve and to connect to all whose paths she crosses.
