Marla began her yoga journey while working as a graphic designer at MAD Magazine in New York City. It was a wonderful way to stretch and release tension after sitting at a computer for most of the day. Her consistent yoga practice alleviated lower back pain symptoms due to scoliosis.
Inspired by her physical health improving, Marla began her journey to become a certified yoga teacher. Marla trained with YogaWorks NYC and completed the 200 hour certification in 2008. In the summer of 2018 she completed her additional 300 hour training with YogaWorks LA and and is now a certified RYT500 instructor. Marla is also a certified Kundalini yoga instructor having completed her 200 hour training in 2005 with the Kundalini Research Institute (KRI).
Marla has three children whom continue to inspire her yoga. With gratitude given to the practice of Vinyasa and Kundalini Yoga, she has opened her heart to peace and vitality. Marla finds great joy instructing and sharing the benefits of yoga with others!
