Marian McNair, MATC, MFA, has been working with and perfecting her practice with crystal bowl sound therapy for over 25 years. With an extensive background in music, art, yoga and teaching, she combines this knowledge to offer clients a safe and nurturing space to heal and gain a sense of well-being.
Having a passion for helping others on their path, Marian offers vibrational sound classes for cancer patients, children with special needs, and seniors with memory issues. With her long time practice, starting at the age of 16, Marian teaches yoga classes at various studios in the area. She also has art classes for underserved minority children and provides weekly yoga class for their parents.
Marian has presented at wellness events and retreats across the country, including the National Wellness Conference since 2010, speaking about the science behind the art of crystal bowl healing, and beautifully demonstrating the art behind the science.
Knowing that expressing ourselves creatively with art is healing, she often incorporates painting and other projects, along with the music, movement and sound in her classes and workshops. She also teaches private and group classes in both art and guitar for children and adults.
Marian has produced six CD’s, four of which have the beautiful sounds of crystal bowls & voice. In 2014, she released two CD’s, one with bluesy and heartfelt love songs, all written by Marian, and the other a collaborative country/folk CD with her husband, Jim Fine. In late 2015, The Amethyst Cave was released. Along with the crystal bowls & voice you are also gently guided into the meditative state with creative visualizations.
Marian currently lives in Lake Forest, IL and provides workshops at her home studio.
