Marcus Stanback has been a dedicated student of yoga since 2016. Originally beginning yoga to relieve back pain, he saw benefits from the connection of breath to movement and mindfulness. As a former D ...1 athlete, he enjoys finding ways to use yoga to challenge students to build their body awareness. He aims to embody and share subtle aspects of yoga through intentional breathing and a alignment based exploration of the postures. Marcus decided to teach yoga when he saw a lack of representation for black men in the yoga industry. He sees the practice of yoga as an opportunity for us to build habits that support our practice on the mat and our lives off the mat. His 200 & 500 hour certifications were completed at Yoga Bhoga in Portland, OR. He welcomes you to join him in the practice of paying attention.
