Marcus came to yoga for the physical fix but soon found the magic went deeper. With a degree in philosophy he spent his 20s mostly exploring Hedonism as one half of the Loose Cannons DJs, remixing, recording and touring the world, living the high/low-life. Off-stage, he first came to the mat through martial arts- combining the self-discipline and control of ninjutsu with the freedom and flow of BJJ. The yoga came as a way to recover from lingering injuries picked up along the way.
Going on to teacher trainings with The Yoga People, David Swenson, David Kyle, and Jason Crandell, he also studied in Yin Yoga too, complementing the daily yang of London city-life with a deepening appreciation of meditation, stillness of mind and yoga beyond the asanas that originally drew him in. In 2015 he co-founded the Dead Yogis Society, a karma yoga movement to wipe the gloss off the lips of #instayoga and return to the breath, sweat and rawness of the practice… Letting (e)go.
He has also co-written two books with Hannah Whittingham: on yogic philosophy, “Greed, Sex, Intention- Living like a yogi in the 21st Century” and postures in the age of social media, “How To Win at Yoga.” As well as running their own teacher trainings through The Good Life Yoga School in London.
