My Tuesday yoga class with Marie at BYRA is essential for me, I absolutely need it to reinvigorate myself for the week ahead. Marie’s wisdom is amazing in providing guidance both physically and spiritually.

I love it!


I fell under Marie’s spell a couple of years ago and I am still enchanted by her love, compassion and total understanding of body and breath in yoga. Her restorative class is exactly what it says, I come away inspired to begin a new day.
Her retreats are amazing and not to be missed.


I just love that every week is something different. I love Marie’s beautiful, warm, friendly personality. I’m feeling so much more flexible & relaxed! Kerrie

I found Marie’s yoga while running around Bayview one day. I love Marie’s yoga. It’s such a beautiful location, so peaceful on Pittwater. Marie is a fun loving caring yoga teacher with a friendly warm smile and hug for us all.

I feel amazing after each class.


Yoga with Marie is my favourite time of the week! I love how I go into each and every session with a crowded mind and how I leave with an empty one.

Her classes are filled with compassion, humility, thoughtfulness and peace. There is always a giggle here and there to be shared amongst us all. After a session I feel totally relaxed and my body is impatient for the following week.

Marie is such an amazing woman with a kind, happy and mother-like personality that is contagious.

I love her and her yoga classes to bits and totally recommend them!!


In November 2016 I competed in an international martial arts competition and won gold in my division. At 46 I need to train smarter, not harder and yoga helps me recover from wrestling guys 20 years my junior. Yoga is about balance, posture and flexibility, all important qualities for a martial artist. Since starting yoga my injury rate has decreased greatly and my back and neck pain all but disappeared.

I enjoy Marie’s classes as she is always cheerful and gives calm and clear instructions. She has made me feel welcome from the first day even though I may not be the typical demographic and I would recommend Marie as an instructor without hesitation.


I attend Marie’s classes weekly & have been on 3 different amazing retreats with her. Her classes & retreats are life changing.

Not only does she embody the yoga philosophy, but her love for sharing, teaching & bringing community together is inspiring! Her passion for love & life is completely contagious.

I feel so so blessed to be a member of her community & would recommend her classes to everyone, beginner or advanced.

Life is so much richer for it.


I always look forward to Marie’s classes. I go twice a week, combining dynamic and restorative yoga, which really helps prevent the recurrence of neck and back problems I used to have, as well as providing a great sense of wellbeing.

Having classes right on the beach in the surf club is an added bonus which always lifts my mood.


Body and Breath Yoga is a restorative practice. The classes are nurturing, inspiring, challenging and fun. They are uniquely connected to Mother Earth and the changing seasons and delivered with love. Rosie
