About Marianne Tanner
Marianne’s relationship with yoga began with her first class in 2000, and like every good relationship, it has grown stronger and more committed with time.
She completed her teacher training at Red Door Yoga in Orlando, Florida in 2004, and has been teaching ever since. Upon moving to Portland in 2005, her practice and teaching have continued to evolve and deepen. Marianne is grateful to be a part of such a rich yoga community, and in particular for her study with Lisa Mae Osborn. In 2010, Marianne left full-time work as a librarian so that she could spend more time teaching and learning. She is continually challenged, moved, humbled, saved and inspired by these practices, and in turn loves sharing yoga and mindfulness practices with others.
Marianne is most interested in how the practices of yoga allow us to be more fully human and embodied, more connected to ourselves and the world around us, and more spacious and whole. Her classes combine a clear, steady and sweet combination of feeling, breath, alignment and mindfulness.
