Marla Mockus RYT discovered yoga during her first year of college in Santa Barbara, CA. The meshing of mind, body and spirit that is felt during yoga practice inspired Marla. The thought of using yoga to help transform people's lives was something that intrigued her, and she knew from the beginning that it was going to be something her life would hold a space for.
Marla believes yoga should be accessible to everyone; even if you have never done yoga before, stepping on your mat will be enriching and fun with this class! She will base her classes on the energy of the day by incorporating basic poses, breath work, and stretching. Marla truly wants her classes to be accessible to all levels, but also to provide an uplifting challenge. By using tailored modifications, she will ensure the best positions for each individual body. Any shape, size, or yogic ability will be sure to leave their mat ready for the day, walking on a yoga cloud!
This is a community donation based class. There is a recommended $5 donation. All members of the community are invited to connect and spend an hour enhancing your well-being on your mat!
Today you will find Marla practicing yoga constantly, not just physically but also by living a yogic lifestyle. Marla completed her 200hr yoga teacher training in 2017 on a magical little island called Koh Phangan in Thailand. Her training consisted of an alignment-based vinyasa style course, which helped to lay down a solid foundation and add to the depth of body awareness in poses. Marla enjoys a fluid, slow flow that creates dance-like qualities; mindfully moving from pose to pose.
