Marcia Appel - Yoga Teacher/Green Lotus Founder & Partner

Marcia stepped onto her mat in 2000 at the encouragement of her dearest friends, in part to ease the grief caused when her beloved father developed lung cancer and also to combat the effects of fibromyalgia. (She still thanks an enlighted physician at Mayo Clinic for suggesting she try yoga.) As her practice deepened, her mind calmed, her body strengthened, and her spirit renewed. What's more, the fibromyalgia ended, she lost weight, and felt as vital as she had in years." Yoga changed everything for me and for my family," she says.
In 2006, Marcia, a former journalist and writer, wrote the plan that would launch Green Lotus. Together, she and her friend (and yoga buddy) Christie Singleton co-founded Green Lotus and planted the seeds of service that have become the foundation of the Green Lotus philosophy. "As teachers and healers," Marcia says, "we meet students and clients where they are. We learn and grow from each other -- and have fun doing it!" In 2009, they recruited Merry Beth Hovey and Candy Bell to join them as partners in Green Lotus.
Marcia enjoys writing and reading, hiking, swimming, gardening, and studying yoga. She loves to travel with her friends and husband Vince Giorgi and adores her son, Tony; daughter-in-law, Allison; daughter, Gina, and her remarkable mom, Henrietta (not to mention her dog, cat, horse, and goldfish!).
