“I had a fantastic experience training with Mara. She always engaged the trainees in an open dialog and considered all our questions and thoughts care- fully. Mara had a genuine desire to make sure we learned and grew throughout the training. She has a strong commitment to yoga and brings inspiration and grace to the practice.”

“I hope one day to acquire all the skills Mara demonstrates in class: excellent cuing, dynamic flow, easily understood explanations and deep caring for all participants. Mara sees the best in everyone in teacher training. She focuses on their strengths as potential yoga instructors and gently encourages. You are in the best possible hands.”
