Anne Marie Vorbach

Anne Marie is the co-owner and founder of Marshall Yoga Shala, and has been practicing yoga since 2009. She began teaching yoga in 2012.

Anne Marie teaches a variety of yoga classes including Yin Yoga, Ashtanga yoga, Restorative yoga, and beginners yoga.  She tends to use fewer props (with the exception of restorative yoga) and strives to allow each student to have their own unique experience.  She loves the variety of movement in different types of yoga - the quiet and still, as well as the active and challenging.  Her aspiration is to create an atmosphere which is honoring of the long tradition of yoga practice and philosophy.  

Anne Marie completed her 500 hour yoga study at Yoga Loft in Willmar, MN in December 2016.
