Flowing River Qigong and Yoga


Welcome to my website! My name is Marie Theriault, and I offer Yoga and Qigong classes in my private studio and at various locations in NC and SC including Anytime Fitness in Wesley Chapel, CMC-Union Hospital in Monroe, Levine Cancer Institute in Ballantyne, Integra Wellness Center in Indian Land, and seasonally at libraries in NC and SC. Various styles of Yoga are offered including Chair Yoga, Yoga Flow, and Yoga for Cancer. Please go to the Events List section of this website to see the full class schedule.

Qigong classes are a nice option for those who have found Yoga uncomfortable and challenging and are looking for an exercise experience that brings a deep level of healing to the mind and the body through flowing, meditative movements.

All classes help to lessen and relieve pain, bring peace to the mind, and support physical and emotional healing.

More information can be found by viewing my Profile page, Events List, and Photo Gallery. You are also welcome to visit my Flowing River Qigong and Yoga Facebook page.

Profile and Credentials        

Marie is a Registered Yoga Teacher having completed 200 hours of training in a Yoga Alliance approved Integrated Hatha Yoga program. She is also a graduate of the Yoga for Cancer (y4c) teacher training course which provides quality support through Yoga for cancer patients and survivors to help them live longer, healthier and happier lives. The philosophy is that true compassion comes through knowledge and understanding of the unique challenges - both physical and emotional, that cancer patients face, and to provide guidance and leadership to help them achieve a healing Yoga practice. The Yoga for Cancer classes will stimulate the immune system through movement, improve flexibility and strengthen bones, create a sense of empowerment to reduce anxiety, and support overall health.

Marie is also a certified instructor in the Chinese energy healing art of Qigong (similar to Tai Chi) which blends slow, gentle movements, synchronized breathing and mind focus to strengthen the body's natural ability to heal, both physically and emotionally. Qigong movements are flowing, easy to learn exercises that help relieve physical aches and pains, mental tension, and provide stress relief and overall mind/body fitness. A Qigong practice can be used as a type of preventative medicine to keep the body healthy but can also assist in self-healing for health challenges of all kinds. Marie has completed 600 hours in certified Qigong training, teaches weekly classes, and presents and participates in workshops on various holistic, health-related topics.

Marie has also completed the first two levels of the Healing Touch Certification Program offered at Carolinas College of Health Sciences and also has a certification in Thai Yoga Bodywork.

All Certifications can be viewed in the Photo Gallery.
