Marla has been practicing yoga for 17 years and holds an E-RYT 500 level designation with Yoga Alliance.

Sarah Powers and Paul Grilley have had a significant influence on her personal practice as well the forms of Yoga she enjoys teaching – Yin Yoga, Taoist Yoga and Vinyasa Flow. Her primary interest as a teacher involves accessing and nurturing all dimensions of our humanity through body-based consciousness.
