Since 2003, she has been exploring both her inner and outer world through extensive travel and deep immersion - studying movement, breathwork, meditation, and indigenous wisdom. A lifelong student of mindful movement and breath awareness, Marianne has taught classes and workshops in Canada, Australia, Indonesia, India and Peru. Her students have ranged in age from 2 to 62. While living in Cusco, Peru she opened her yoga studio MoveStillFree. Marianne’s global mindset and personal focus on conscientious living has attracted like-minded clients across the globe in the areas of hospitality, tourism, wellness, culture and the arts. With a background in marketing, public relations, and event planning in the retail, finance, and non-profit sectors, Marianne eventually made a life-changing shift toward a more intentional and integrative way of life, combining her skills and passions to establish the design and wellness team of Shine & Humm with her husband Shane. They have been living nomadically and working remotely together since 2008 and blog about their journey on their website shineandhumm.com.
