All About Me
Innovative Lifestyle Design
Marianne has always been active and has been teaching fitness classes for over 30 years, including personal training through AFAA. She began her Yoga and holistic lifestyle after her Mom, Joanne Kernan, passed away from cancer in 1999. She was introduced to Yoga, Reiki, Feng Shui and many other holistic modalities during that time. She started her Yoga Training soon after and began teaching out of her home in 2005. Her desire was to encourage others to live longer and healthier lives through exercise, movement and breath.
Marianne’s dream to become a fitness studio owner began in the 1990’s, while she was working at the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office in Florida. Her dream came true in 2006 when she opened Studio Oxygen in Canfield, Ohio. At that time, She had a daughter in college, Shawn, a daughter in high school, Sabrina, and (3) children under the age of 5, Colin, Conor and Camryn. Studio Oxygen was the first boutique studio of it's kind in the Youngstown and Tri-county area. She opened a second location in 2015 in Poland, Ohio. Studio Oxygen was a very successful business offering various styles of Yoga, Hot Yoga, Spinning, Barre, Bodhi Pilates, and beautiful boutiques in each of the locations. She was motivated and determined to make Studio Oxygen the premiere Yoga Studio and Boutique in the area!
Marianne loved her studios and was preparing to open a third, when she decided it was time to take her training and her dreams to a whole new level. She sold Studio Oxygen in February, 2020 and continues to be an active part of the business; teaching, consulting and doing workshops and teacher training programs.
