Marie Overfors

241Hi! I’m Marie Overfors, the co-founder of Evergreen Fitness.

I am thrilled to be working with David-Dorian Ross, host of PBS’s Taichi: Health & Happiness, author, and eight-time tai chi (taiji) U.S. national champion, to bring the first TaijiFit™ Experience classes to the Twin Cities as part of a national rollout beginning now.

I’m a certified TaijiFit Instructor and love teaching TaijiFit classes. I love to see my students experience flow and mind-body connection in TaijiFit class.

More about me: I’m a certified yoga instructor, a long-time fitness lover, major hot yoga addict, Nordic walking geek (and founder of the first and biggest Nordic walking group on LinkedIn) and short-time modern fencer.

You can also find me behind the scenes of, where I am a writer + PR expert. I serve on the board of directors for Minnesota Women in Marketing & Communication and am a past president of the Midwest Fiction Writers, an organization of writing professionals who make up stories to entertain readers.

In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, reading the Wall Street Journal, growing vegetables and spending time “up north.” When I’m up north, I connect with my northwoods kin, haul wood and take pictures of trees, flowers, and what I call “animal sign.”
