Move with me.
Mairin McCracken Yoga
“Mairin is one of those people who just knows how to heal your heart. Whether it be through movement or the insanely poignant and impactful words she shares before and after each class to help set an intention, I always feel like I’ve done so much more than burn calories. I cannot recommend her and her beautiful practice enough.”
- Abigail Scott, client, Body Temp Yoga and online
“I have never experienced such a unique yoga [sculpt] class. Mairin combines classic yoga poses with free weights to create an incredibly choreographed masterpiece of a class.” - Amy, client, Yoga Garden San Francisco and online
A little bit about me
TLDR: I love to move in unique, fun, interesting ways- in community- set to a background of really good music and a reading by one of the greats.
My yoga origin story isn't the first of its kind. I was drawn to yoga because of my dance background and because it helped me overcome an injury. I stayed because it soothed my nervous system and increased my capacity for loving myself (and others).
My teaching style, however, is somewhat off-the-beaten-path.
Take a Vinyasa class led by yours truly and you'll find elements of dance, pilates, and mobility work. My Sculpt Flow classes are rigorous, cathartic, and heavily music-driven. All of my classes are grounded in a spiritual talk to support your own unique, inner journey, and set to a bumping playlist- think Sofi Tukker meets Tracy Chapman meets Drake. Most importantly, each class is come-as-you-are.
Sometimes we chant. Sometimes we sing. Sometimes we scream at the top of our lungs. You'll never be pressured into doing one movement one specific way- you know your body. Stay in the physical practice or take the invitation to go deeper.
A few of my favorite sources of inspiration are Bhakti Yoga, Pema Chodron, Father Gregory Boyle, and my Kindergarten students (oh yeah, I live a double life as a classroom teacher!).
Whether you're looking to sign up for my next group class, workshop or retreat, or you'd like to dive deeper and sign up for a mentorship or training, let me know! I'd love to be your personal hype girl.
Mairin is so much more than "teaching yoga" - it's a true experience. She always brings a thoughtful poem or quote to class - making you tune in to yourself & where you're at in the present moment. From there, she takes you through a one-of-a-kind yoga flow that you've never seen anywhere else. She also always has a bangin', curated playlist for each flow. I'm always reset & refreshed after class. You are in for a REAL TREAT!!
Mairin's classes are an amazing blend of opportunities to turn inward while challenging yourself physically. I always learn something new from the quotes or readings she shares, and I really appreciate her emphasis on meeting yourself where you are in that moment, it's something I try to carry with me throughout my practice and I'm grateful to her for that.
Mairin's classes are equally based in physical practice and spiritual energy. Everything from the sequences to music choices feels uniquely hers and unlike any other yoga classes I've taken before. I always leave Mairin's yoga classes feeling freer and lighter.
