Sarah and Tomas Marsh
Founders of Flor Yoga Fitness, Sarah and Tomas Marsh have been practicing and teaching Yoga for twenty years. They have studied under some of the greatest Yoga Masters in the world including Bikram Choudhury, Baron Baptiste, Richard Freeman, Jhon T, John Friend, Deb Flashenberg, and Sandra Sommerfield-Kozak. In 1997, Sarah opened the first Bikram (hot Yoga) studio in Manhattan where she stayed for seven years. During that time, Sarah and Tomas were hired by The New York Football Giants to train the entire team pre-season. They worked closely with Amani Toomer, Michael Strahan and Tiki Barber among others. Their other high profile clients include: Scott Wolfe, Martha Stewart, Molly Simms, Gina Gershon, Drew Barrymore, Anastasia, and Robin Strasser. For the last ten years they have run Corporate Yoga programs for Sony Music Corporation, First Brokers’ and True Entertainment. Currently, Sarah and Tomas bring Vinyasa, Prenatal, and Restorative Yoga to eight Condominium facilities in Jersey City. For the past six years, they have been parents to Cody Marsh, and loved every minute of it. Cody has given them a brand new appreciation for the benefits of all styles of yoga!
Marilyn Barnett has been studying yoga since 1993, is a certified Bikram Yoga instructor and author of Hot Yoga. Her background in the medical profession inspired her to open several yoga studios, as she wanted an opportunity to lead others on the path to wellness. Marilyn also studied intensively with Sandra Summersfield-Kosak, founder of Yoga International Studies. Through this program, she was exposed to various styles and philosophies of great yoga masters whose influence are now present in her meticulous and nurturing method of teaching. Her detailed approach to asana practice gently guides students beyond their restrictive habits, challenging them toward their fullest expression of the poses . She currently practices nursing in Arizona, teaches yoga, and is a full time student working toward a degree as a nurse practitioner.
Well-being, meditation, deep breathing, and healthy eating have always been the core of Sita’s lifestyle. She was certified to teach Hatha Yoga in 2005, and since then has continued to learn and integrate many styles of yoga and meditation into her life and teaching. Sita is an extremely caring instructor who will guide you according to your needs. She can bring you static Hatha poses, Vinyasa flow movements, and Core building. She encourages students to connect with their breathing & stretching, fueling and energizing their mind & body while deepening inner focus.

What Makes Our Yoga Teacher Training Unique?
Because we like to keep our courses small and intimate, we offer much more individual & “hands-on” attention during your training. What this means is that you will be given a lot more information & adjustments first hand to truly learn and grasp each component of what it takes to become a yoga teacher and teach effectively. Our goal is to make sure that each student leaves well prepared and ready to truly guide their students to true health and happiness. So if you feel that you would like more attention from your teachers during your training, then we are the perfect school for you. Also, each group (being so small) becomes a little like a family, and we have seen amazing, lasting friendships bloom. Our training, though tough, is FUN and we do not take ourselves too seriouslyJ We feel absorbing all the knowledge into your brain and body is hard enough, so our teachers bring humor and humility into the yoga school (along with some butt-kicking, and some really long, intense exams!)
Starting your Yoga Teaching Career:
Another great reason to take FlorYoga’s teacher training is that we have an established business system already in place in Jersey City and New York City where we offer mobile yoga to many people in their business or home. Our client base is constantly growing which means we are always hiring more teachers. Since we prefer to hire from within, this means that if we train & graduate you, we can immediately put you to work in our growing yoga business.
The Business Of Yoga
Because of our extensive work with national athletes and Hollywood industry leaders, we can teach you first hand how to develop your own personal teaching career. We mentor you through the “business of yoga” helping you launch your Yoga teaching career. We talk about liability and legal issues, and help you establish your own private insurance and can also offer help with marketing & promotion.
