Hi! I'm Marilyn Sambhavi Polo, an East-Coaster who has happily made Oregon home for 6 years.
For 20 years, I have practiced, studied, and taught meditation, yoga, and Ayurveda. I am a Sivananda Yoga trained instructor and lived on their ashrams around the world, serving as a karma yogi and assisting in teacher trainings.
Professionally, I teach 4th grade at a Corvallis bilingual school, and in a career, I was an academic researcher of psychology & psychiatry. I've taught my 4th graders mindfulness meditation daily and yoga weekly for 3 years and am eager to share my enthusiasm and practical approach to developing a daily meditation practice with the Live Well community.
My years of living in the bustle of New York City, maintaining a very demanding career, trying to nurture my personal life all while trying to sustain a yoga practice have offered me unique insights to building and growing a personal practice that is meaningful to the individual. I invite you all to join the course. Feel free to message me with any questions. I hope to see you there! Peace.
Enjoy the Silence: Practical Applications to Meditation runs Mondays & Wednesdays, Oct 8 - Nov 7, 7:30-8:30p.
