I LOVED Saturday! I left so inspired and motivated to spread the word of yoga and love & kindness to our littlest humans.
I played your song 'Move With You' to my kids yesterday. I wish I could have recorded their reaction for you. They really liked it!”
This was an excellent workshop to get me motivated to do more mindfulness + yoga asanas with my children and their friends. You gave us so many fun and inspiring ideas to create a holistic program to 'reconnect our children to their hearts'. I loved the music, transitions, group work. I also loved the closing circle which furthered my resolve to continue along this journey with my children.
“We were interested in having our daughter introduced to Mindfulness. Our daughter responded well to Marni’s warm manner. The session helped our daughter to focus and be calm, and she learned breathing techniques that help her to relax. Thanks so much Marni!”
I enjoyed the Move-N-Music workshop a lot! It was very informative and hands on, meaning we got to move and try many exercises and games. IT has a good balance between practical and theoretical. Thank-you!

“Hi everyone, Today I was lucky to get the opportunity to experience Marni’s artistry in front of a tough audience. Wow…simply amazing. Magnificent presence! It’s a memory that I will access when I want to smile, be centered, and stay calm.”
John Karrys Teacher
“Cash flow forecasting is an important skill for all entrepreneurs, so we planned a deep dive educational, hands on, full day workshop to teach them how to do it. We anticipated that some of our participants have a lot of anxiety when it comes to working with numbers, and we didn’t want that to get in the way of the learning. So we invited Marni Levitt of Mov n Music to join us for the day and conduct two body breaks plus a short fun, inspirational musical performance to end off the day. Marni did an amazing job helping people reduce their anxiety about learning a tough subject! And helped bring the group together through and reenergized them throughout the day with her music and mindful movement body breaks. Learning happens best when minds are open, bodies are centred, and there is a bit of fun in the air. Thanks Mov n Music for making this cash flow session, well, really flow!”

"Huge thank-you to Move-N-Music with Marni for joining us at Camp Chimo! Marni had a wonderfully structured program beginning with breath work, then moving into guided dance, and finally transitioning towards instrumental. Our campers really enjoyed dancing in some new creative ways and learning to play the Djembe drums. The entire group was able to participate and worked as a team to get a rhythm going for the camp to enjoy. There was such a great feedback from campers and staff, we look forwards to working with Move-N-Music again."

"Your Mindfulness Presentation was extremely useful and relevant for my grade 4/5 Gifted class. The breathing techniques, the song and the story really focussed the students’ attention. Your presentation was relevant and useful to both the students and teachers. Thank you for adding a very useful technique to my repertoire of skills. I wish all teachers could have access to your resource. I will definitely be adding this technique to my classroom management repertoire in September. It will help me to start the year off really well.’

“Thank you for a beautiful, relaxing and friendly program for the seniors.”

“Thank you very much once again for coming today. The program was very interactive, engaging, and fun! The energy you brought to the program was inspiring. Thank you once again.”

“Marni, it was so lovely to have you at Trails. You brought your beautiful passion, rhythms, and love for the drum to Trails. I don’t think we will ever forget it!
-Ashley Hamilton, Trails Youth Initiative
“Marni provides a gentle, non-judgmental, inclusive approach to Yoga and Drumming that was well received by our group of bereaved teens in our Leaders In Training program. She did a beautiful job catering her workshops to meet the diverse needs of our group, resulting in a positive and therapeutic experience for each individual involved.”
-Colleen Mousseau, Camp Erin Program Director
“Marni came to do a Yoga class with youth with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. The class worked wonders on these youth by teaching them how to relax, be in the moment, and reflect. Marni is wonderful and instructor whose calm energy is contagious.”
- Kim Dyment, MSW, RSW/ Family Social Worker: The York Centre for Children, Youth and Families
“Marni! I so appreciate and am grateful to you for your offering to lead yoga sessions during the retreat. Your grounded presence and lyrical voice were wonderful to experience, and, my body was pleased to move.”
- Marusia – Spring Rain Sangha
“It would be my pleasure to give a testimonial on Yoga with Marni! Our campers loved it and almost every one participated and seemed nice and relaxed afterwards. Our campers have behavioural issues ranging from physical aggression to hyperactivity/impulsivity. Also, some of our campers are highly anxious or depressed and internalize quite a bit. Our staff found that your 1 hour session helped our campers to relax mind, body and soul. Your workshop worked so well with our campers that we are looking at ways to incorporate yoga on a weekly basis next summer.”
- Abdi Mohamud – Child Development Institute
“I observed Marni’s unique and creative way of engaging the children’s bodies and minds. I saw how she developed relationships with each student, finding activities and challenges for each one at his/her cognitive and physical levels. She also enlisted the creativity and leadership of the students as they contributed ideas to each yoga session.
I saw how Marni’s yoga program helped the children develop self-awareness, self-regulation, communication, social, cognitive and physical skills. I can see how Marni’s joyful engagement in yoga practise with the students promotes their functioning and enriches their lives. I am confident that Marni’s yoga program, integrated with other art forms, will inspire and help children of many ages and abilities.”

"Marni’s Music will take your soul to the most places, it awakens your heart and makes you travel places, her organic and crispy voice is filled with pure live, it reflects who she really is.
"Marni sings from a pure and beautiful space of her soul, her lyrics are personal and filled with love, the music has a powerful and transformative effect.
-Nadia Stolpner, MSW RSW
"Thank you so much for inviting me to witness you perform. You were amazing!
I came across this quote…it made me think about the last song you sang and my emotional reaction to it:
“Whatever we are waiting for…peace of mind, contentment, grace, inner awareness of simple abundance…it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.”
Thank you for reminding me that one must be gentle and kind to oneself before being able to truly receive all that awaits us!
- Candy Keillor (Pilates Instructor)
"I had such a lovely time at that event! I had never heard you perform before and had no idea you are so talented! You have a lot of depth to your voice but that it still has a softness to it. I definitely remember your voice! It has depth, and softness, and you sing with a lot of feeling. Your voice is quite unique- I haven’t come across such a unique blend of softness, soul, intention, and depth in one voice!”
