Though having been exposed to a wide variety of yoga systems and schools, Mara continues on her 12+ years-long, deep-study-dive into the parallel tracks of the Ashtanga Vinyasa System (with Manju Jois) and Universal Yoga (a system created by Andrey Lappa, a student of Sri K. Patthabi Jois). For 11 of those years, Mara worked as the primary North American assistant to Andrey Lappa and was the first person in the USA to co-teach UY teacher trainings with him. Through her studies and personal practices, Mara is dedicated to weaving together normal family life with the yoga practices of the Vajrayana (Tantric Buddhist) tradition. She is dedicated to bringing supple strength, powerful softness, spiritual joy and practical proficiency to each person’s evolving relationship with yoga. . Learn more at
