A Few Words From Marie, Your “Coach”

“In the last 15 years of practicing and teaching Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, full time, I have often witnessed in myself and others, a longing to understand on a deeper level the “issues” that have come up on the mat. I often see people laugh out loud, cry or become frustrated in yoga class.  This is GREAT, it means the yoga is working!!! In The Rocket® practice, the advanced postures and tools of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga are intended to awaken the feeling body, release toxins, and open the heart – bringing our innermost desires and unanswered questions to the surface.  In the practice of Yoga on the mat, instructors often say,  “quiet the mind” or “thoughts are make-believe.” Intellectually, I could and do believe that, however, emotionally, physically and spiritually, I found that looking at my thoughts –  instead of ignoring them – was, and is, essential to maintaining the peace I felt on the mat. In my own experience of being coached, mentored, and trained, by Dorothy Divack, Master Life Coach, for over 12 years, I have and continue to build awareness, experience healing, and manifest visions that have made all the difference in my life. In collaboration with my yoga practice, engaging in a coaching relationship has inspired me to look closely into my personal mythology, look for patterns, and to dissolve the illusions that seemingly stand between me and my highest potential, my perfect peace, and my connection to Spirit. If I can stand on my hands on the mat, surely I can off the mat! I remember Larry (Founder of It’s Yoga and creator of The Rocket®) used to say, that early in his practice he realized he could do advanced asanas of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, but went to sleep afraid, unsure of what he feared. He knew that there was something more, and he himself was in a mentoring relationship with Dorothy since 1989 through the end of his life.  This experience offers us the unique opportunity to explore and process our deepest desires, thoughts and beliefs, feelings, behaviors, personal histories and past and current relationships…  with someone who is fully devoted to seeing your greatness.   Rooted in unconditional Love, the CENTER OF EXCELLENCE coaching model is powerful, effective, and transformational. As the perfect compliment to your Rocket practice, it will indeed, “get you there faster!” ALSO, I want to say very clearly, that Yoga off the Mat is for ANYONE, yoga on the mat practitioners and those who are not yet on their yoga mats.  It’s an opportunity to access tools that will support you in living your life to the fullest.   It would be a privilige to set up a 30 minute complimentary session to see if this is something that you want to pursue.  Feel free to email me at for more information.” Click here to read Marie’s bio
