Marije Paternotte,

Manasquan (NJ), USA



Marije’s teaching style is understated and compassionate. She has the ability to present complex concepts, and an in-depth knowledge of yogic anatomy and philosophy, in a simple and approachable way, for which she is loved by beginning and advanced practitioners alike.

Marije was born and raised in Amsterdam where, after her training to be a professional ballet dancer, she studied law and worked as a corporate lawyer. She currently lives in a small beach town in New Jersey with her husband and 2 cats and teaches yoga and meditation around the world.

After her foundational and professional level yoga teacher certification at the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health (MA), she found Sarah and Ty Powers who she considers her most important teachers. Marije is honored and grateful to share and teach Insight Yoga.
