Marcus’ took the road less-travelled to yoga. Fresh out of Uni, he managed to use his degree in philosophy to justify spending his 20s touring the world as an international DJ, remixing and recording as one half of the Loose Cannons. All professional jumping around was put pay to by a bad football tackle and compounded by some ill-fated onstage “breakdance” choices, that led to finally taking a (guru) friend’s advice in trying yoga to get fixed. A need to properly heal the body coincided with a sneaking desire for change in the mind that landed Marcus on the mat… Trying every style of class he could get to on every studio intro-offer in London, he finally landed on dynamic vinyasa and more specifically, the Ashtanga-inspired Rocket system, which satisfied his undying urge to fly. Completing his first 200hrs teacher training with the Yoga People in Goa he went on to further train in advanced progressive ashtanga and Yin Yoga, deepening his appreciation of what yoga can be beyond the asanas that drew him in. He is also part of the Dead Yogis Society, a movement to wipe the gloss off the lips of yoga and return to the breath, sweat and rawness of the practice… Letting (e)go.
Marcus also has a Black Belt in the ancient Japanese martial art of ninjutsu, which he feels compliments his yoga practice, combining self-discipline with freedom of movement, and lightness with control.
He gives heartfelt gratitude and respect to his many teachers past and present including Stewart Gilchrist, Alaric Newcombe and Eileen Gaulthier in London, Mula Bandha King, David Kyle in Puerto Rico, The Yoga People- Jamie and Dulce- worldwide, and Larry Schultz up there.
The Rocket is an attitude not a sequence and Marcus’ teaching embraces it’s joyful rebel spirit; grounding on the mat, flying off it, always experimenting. Breath and bandhas fire the agni in the practice, but above all, it’s a moving meditation. And the DJing still plays an integral role, with specially mixed playlists running the tempo and energy of every class.
