She teaches a therapeutic yoga class in the clinic and plans to offer a sit-to-stand strength and stretch class in the near future.

Marian loves living the Oregon lifestyle with her husband, Dave, and daughter, Hope, after having lived in the Arizona Sonoran desert for 25 years where she owned a PT clinic.
