If you have not yet met Marjan, you are in for an amazing encounter. There is something magical that happens when you are in Marjan’s presence as she exudes a zest for life unlike anyone I have ever met and it’s simply contagious.

Over the years, I have had the pleasure of experiencing many of Marjan’s gifts. Marjan is an amazing teacher with a unique ability to nurture, motivate, and share her extensive knowledge across many mediums with love and compassion. It’s hard to believe one individual can have such a vast array of talents.

Whether she leads you in dance, yoga, meditation or sound healing, Marjan will transform you to a place of tranquility and peace and guide you to a deeper understanding of yourself.
