WHO WE ARE
About Misty Marcum
Misty found yoga after graduating from Art College. With a background in ballet and figure skating, yoga appealed to her, yet she didn’t fall in love with it right away. Misty’s yoga practice became a much-needed escape following her vigorous days as a professional automotive industrial designer in metro Detroit. After nearly 10 years of practice, Misty’s appreciation for yoga inspired her to take the 200 HR RYT teacher training, followed by the Apprenticeship Program at Citizen Yoga. Find her on the schedule at all three Citizen studios, Zen Movement studio in Bloomfield Hills and Family YMCA in Auburn Hills. She is ready to share her energy and love of the practice!
Misty’s on-the-water experience includes her participation as a competitive SUP racer in the M22 Challenge and OABI events. She has practiced and taught Standup Paddleboarding for 5 years. Her deep love for nature and being on the water started at an early age in the Great Lakes. Merging her yoga practice with her love of water, Misty created the opportunity to introduce people to SUP and SUP yoga. Seeing her passion come to life as students discover strength and happiness brings Misty great satisfaction. Her husband, Jeremy, shares the same love for the water. He builds wood water crafts, including kayaks, boats, and boards as a hobby.
