Marc Settembrino is a sociologist and yoga teacher based in Hammond, LA. He received his Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Central Florida in 2013. His research examines homelessness in the context of disaster.
Marc began practicing yoga in 2015. He credits yoga with helping him grieve his father’s death and helping him balance his personal and professional lives. In 2017, Marc completed Annie Carpenter’s 200hr SmartFLOW yoga teacher training. As a bigger-bodied, male, yoga practitioner, Marc understands that starting a new yoga practice can be intimidating. Therefore, as a yoga teacher, his primary goal is to create inclusive yoga classes that are accessible to every-body, regardless of size, shape, age, strength, or flexibility. Marc teaches yoga classes at Downtown Yoga in Hammond, Louisiana. You can follow him on Instagram @embracewhatis
