About Us

About Marsha

Since 2002, Marsha McClellan has been dedicated to teaching Hatha Yoga while working with the body’s optimal anatomical alignment. In 2015, after being in business for 13 years,  I closed the studio to retire, only teaching one regular class a week and women’s retreats. My Gentle Beginner class is for all ages and needs. I invite you to join us as we explore together the many physical, mental, and spiritual benefits of yoga. Corporate and private classes are also available, contact me for details.


Our clients come from throughout Northern Virginia, including the cities of Manassas, Gainesville, Centreville, Bristow, Haymarket, Woodbridge, Warrenton and beyond.

My Mission

At The Yoga Connection I am committed to safely teaching hatha yoga to students at all levels and with varying needs or challenges. With compassion and care I guide students not just through the physical poses of yoga, but towards a mindful and authentic practice that shapes, supports and influences all aspects of their lives.


I signed up for the “Gentle Stretch” and “Yin Yoga” classes to strengthen my bones and improve my flexibility. After a year of weekly classes, not only am I moving more fluidly, but my bone density has significantly improved. Even my doctor was amazed.

I have been practicing yoga for more than 15 years and I feel very fortunate to have discovered TYC in 2005. It’s now my home studio, and not only do I continue to take classes, but I also teach classes as a newly graduated RYT! I am very proud to be a part of The Yoga Conncection “family.”

No one believes that I had a c-section because apparently I am getting around very well; I credit my yoga regimen to if not preparing me for the rigors of labor, getting my body in good condition to facilitate my recovery from major surgery.

The Yoga Connection is a serene studio and my first experience with yoga. I always come away from class with a sense of well-being, calm and comfort. Another plus is that my body is more flexible in just a few short months. Marsha’s yoga classes are something of a mind-altering and cleansing exercise that I’ve come to enjoy and look forward to.
