Mara started her love affair with Iyengar yoga in 1998. Battling and struggling with major addiction and embarking on an arduous exploration in weekly therapies, her therapist requested she go to Bikram yoga every day for 90 days… or else. She hated the heat, but she went anyway.
Mara began trading cleaning the studio for unlimited classes and never left. Over time, she gained a deep appreciation for the mind-body effects she experienced, and YogaSource became her home away from home. The owner of YogaSource, Christina Mcleod Murray, asked her to become a teacher—and voila, a yoga teacher was born.
Outside the studio, Mara is a certified birth doula, certified massage therapist, an energetic medicine healer, intuitive empath and guide, medicine woman (all of us women are), wife, mother, friend and lover of all things anchored in truth and healing.
Both Mara’s Vinyasa and HIIT Pilates classes are challenging, dynamic, fluid and inspiring. She adds a mixture of breath, laughter and creativity to every class. Each class is unique and a co~creation.
