Marjorie Ginsberg – Client Spotlight

Meet one of super amazing clients, Marjorie Ginsberg…Marjorie is such a thoughtful person and we are blessed to have her here at studioVIBE.  Thank you Marjorie for the support and friendship you extend to all of us!  xoxo

Where were you born and how did you end up in Cary, NC?

I was born in Manhattan, grew up in Philadelphia. Came to Cary via New England in 1995.

What brought you to studioVIBE?

I started doing yoga at the Y in the late 90s. After several years I wanted a calmer, cleaner, more restful environment. I looked around for my two favorite yoga teachers from the Y – Stacie Dombrowski and Phyllis Adams. They were both teaching at studioVIBE, which is what initially brought me in the door.

Since you have been coming to studioVIBE, what do you look forward to the most?

These days, Advanced Mat on Tuesday at 9:30 (I like the continuous motion, no frills/modifications, challenge of advanced exercises) and P40 on Wednesday at 8:30 (I like the emphasis on arms, inner and outer thigh, glutes as a compliment to Pilates. You will never injure or overwork, but will get a “bootcamp” level workout.)

Congrats on being a new Grandma! I am sure only Grandma’s really know what it is like…but can you explain how it feels to be Will’s Nana?

It’s amazing to see your children being loving and dedicated parents.

Tell us about the volunteer work you do.

I work at InterAct answering a Crisis and Information line for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. I have previously worked as a Child Advocate, Wake County Guardian Ad Litem and Cary Citizen Assisting Police.

Do you have a favorite vacation spot or what was your favorite vacation?

Montana, Maine, Puerto Rico, London, France, Italy, Asheville, Emerald Isle

So tell us about you…tell us about your life outside of studioVIBE and what you do for fun?

I retired from a marketing and strategy career in the tech industry and am now a student of Tarot, Astrology and the Subtle Body. I am a life long reader, relatively recent Hurricanes fan, follower of my husband’s bands (Moonlight Rescue Band and No Worries), and lover of makeup and perfume.
Just for fun…If you were stuck on a deserted island what 3 things would you bring?

iPad, big hat, fan

Any last-minute thoughts for someone contemplating walking in our doors?

If you are someone who needs variety you will be very happy here. I come 5x a week and rarely take the same class twice. If you like to work around a specific time slot (mine is 9:30am) you can come every day and experience a different class or teacher. I find it is easier to be consistent about my practices and avoid scheduling other commitments when I have a predictable time that I attend.

What are three words you would use to describe studioVIBE?

Energetic, optimistic, dedicated

Reuben Schooler: E-RYT 200, LMBT- NC License 7808

Reuben discovered his innate desire and ability as a healer through the spiritual science of yoga.  Since that time, Reuben has devoted himself to the study and practice of radiant health and well-being.  As a young adult Reuben was an active runner, rugby player, and beach volleyball player. Later, Reuben turned to the practice of yoga postures to heal his body and mind from the stress that had manifested as various chronic dis-ease conditions.  In 2001, Reuben became a certified personal trainer with NETA and after several years of yoga practice, Reuben became a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance in 2004.  In 2005, he met his mentor and teacher, Dr. Samuel Sasu of Ghana (West Africa).  Studying Ayurveda with Dr. Sasu led Reuben to become a licensed massage therapist in early 2008. Reuben is licensed to practice bodywork in North Carolina and is certified by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork.  Reuben earned his Bachelor of Science in Engineering from Duke University where he was a Reginaldo Howard Scholar.  As well as continuing to enjoy a successful career in the Information Technology industry, Reuben has traveled extensively in North and South America, Africa, the Caribbean, Europe, and South East Asia and is grateful for the opportunity to bring a world of experience to his offerings as a holistic healer, Ayurveda practitioner, bodyworker, and yoga teacher.  Reuben has devoted himself to the study and practice of radiant health and well-being in order to help others and is a willing and able contributor in the field of integrative medicine.
