As you read this, I will be in the homeland of my four grandparents, celebrating the arrival in Holland of St. Nicholas or Sinterklass as he is known there. Having left his home in Madrid, Spain, (and you thought it was the North Pole, but Sinterklass is wise and knows better than to live in such a cold climate!), he arrives each year by boat into a different port so that over the years as many of the children of Holland as is possible have an opportunity to greet him. It is said that if Sinterklass visits Amsterdam, he pays a call on the queen or king. On this special night, children receive presents from Sinterklass or his helpers. They leave food for his horse in their klompen, or clogs, and in return receive sweets from him. I am excited to be able to be in Holland for Sinterklass's arrival because my cousins have small children.

Marcia stepped onto her mat in 2000 at the encouragement of her dearest friends, in part to ease the grief caused when her beloved father developed lung cancer and also to combat the effects of fibromyalgia. (She still thanks an enlighted physician at Mayo Clinic for suggesting she try yoga.) As her practice deepened, her mind calmed, her body strengthened, and her spirit renewed. What's more, the fibromyalgia ended, she lost weight, and felt as vital as she had in years. Yoga changed everything for me and for my family," she says.
In 2006, Marcia, a former journalist and writer, wrote the plan that would launch Green Lotus. Together, she and her friend (and yoga buddy) Christie Singleton co-founded Green Lotus and planted the seeds of service that have become the foundation of the Green Lotus philosophy. "As teachers and healers," Marcia says, "we meet students and clients where they are. We learn and grow from each other -- and have fun doing it! In 2009, they recruited Merry Beth Hovey and Candy Bell to join them as partners in Green Lotus.
Marcia has been blessed to study with talented and compassionate teachers. She completed her first 200-hour yoga teacher training early in 2006 and began teaching regular classes and workshops and leading meditation. That same year, she experienced Journey into Power Level 1 Teacher Training with Baron Baptiste, a powerful form of vinyasa flow. In 2008 she completed a second RYT 200-hour teacher training - Green Lotus' MAYS program - and earned the EYRT 200 designation in 2010. She also completed Judith Lasater's restorative training in July 2011 and is a registered Relax and Renew instructor. She leads a Restorative Teacher Training each year, based on the teachers of Judith and other restorative pioneers.
In May 2012 Marcia finished an 18-month, 300-hour progam - Mindfulness Yoga and Meditation Training - at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in California - which explored the integration of meditation and yoga with teachers Phillip Moffitt, Mark Coleman, Anna Douglas, Janice Gates, Anne Cushman, and Chip Hartranft.
Marcia completed her 500-hour training in October 2012 and is co-creator of Green Lotus's 500-hour teacher training program launching in 2013.
Marcia enjoys writing and reading, hiking, swimming, gardening, and studying yoga.
