MARCIA APPEL - Director of Healing Services
Marcia, founder of and a partner in Green Lotus Yoga and Healing Center with facilities in Lakeville, Mendota Height, and Lakeville, is serving as consulting adviser in integrative healing to Clinic Femina. Green Lotus provides acupuncture, holistic chiropractic, nutritional counseling and workshops, therapeutic massage, energy healing, psychotherapy, training, and yoga and other studio-based classes in integrative centers that build community and well-being.
Marcia stepped onto her mat in 2000, in part to ease the grief caused when her beloved father developed lung cancer and also to combat the effects of fibromyalgia. As her practice deepened, her mind calmed, her body strengthened, and her spirit renewed. What's more, the fibromyalgia ended, she lost weight, eased through life's natural hormonal changes, and felt as vital as she had in years. "Yoga changed everything for me and for my family," she says. "It can for you, too."
In 2006, Marcia, a former journalist and business executive, with an interest in integrative healing, completed yoga teacher training and wrote the Green Lotus business plan. Since 2007, she and business partner Merry Beth Hovey have planted the seeds of service that are 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 addition to serving as a consultant to Clinic Femina, Marcia, E-RYT 500, also will provide private and meditation yoga sessions and workshops to support the clinic's clients.
