Philosophy and Comments        

Marlize Sturman’s commitment to yoga has positively touched the lives of her family, friends, her teachers and students. She fully believes that yoga enhances everyone’s ability to attune to their spiritual as well as physical well-being. The practice of yoga has given her a unique sense of living in the moment and an ability to encourage balance and true enjoyment for many lives she has the privilege to know.

Since 1995, yoga has been ever-present in Marlize’s life and she admits that until yoga came into her life she overlooked the joy of the balance that the poses and transitions and other forms of healing arts have brought into her life.

Over the years her travels, have exposed her to many different modalities of grounding that have brought balance and peace in her life. She is well-versed in many different methods and modalities of the healing arts but yoga has been the most influential in Marlize’s personal life.

Marlize has found and teaches that yoga is not an outside force but an inward force that is capable of revealing an individual’s strength and beauty.
