Are you looking for a way to bring something new to your students that will inspire them and help them maximize their time?
You're in the right place!
I'm Marda, lifelong fitness and sports enthusiast, I learned that as my body got older it needed more in order to be able to do all the fun sports and activities I love, and I knew my yoga clients were feeling the same way. This inspired me to create and refine a class that is very much yoga but with the addition of weights and without joint pounding jumping. From this inspiration, Alignment Yoga Sculpt (AYS) was born. This low-impact, high-intensity practice is a great platform to bring your own unique style and gifts into this practice and bring your beloved students with you to the experience.

"Marda challenges the body and mind"
"I have been doing yoga and yoga sculpt with Marda for close to a decade and there is a reason I keep coming back for the Namaste. Her power flow is designed to challenge the body and mind. She reminds yogis to be present, encourages errors and refocus, and above all else, smiles and laughs because working out should be fun. "
-Brooke Clements (Student of AYS)
"Marda is true perfection"
"Marda is the definition of what yoga should be! She teaches from the heart with abundant kindness, athleticism, knowledge, strength, and relaxation. I find her classes to be athletic yet restorative.... no matter how I’m feeling I always get what I need and feel relaxed and energized after! She teaches at all levels from beginner to expert and always provides the perfect challenge. The variety and intelligence she puts into creating her beautiful flow classes show her passion and care for all of her students. Whether it’s a gentle flow class or a yoga sculpt you will not be disappointed. Marda is true yoga perfection! As a fitness professional myself I have taken many classes but none compare to Marda yoga!!!! I have loved her in the studio and now cannot get enough of her online videos!"
-Kelly Devereux (Personal Trainer)
"AYS Builds body strength and improves balance and coordination"
I love Marda’s yoga classes. I live in Ohio so I watch them on YouTube. I especially love the Alignment Yoga Sculpt class. Marda’s spoken cues and visual demonstrations are first-class. I love how the class builds my body strength, engages muscles evenly, and helps with balance and coordination. I suffer from elbow pain and after just one class my pain has eased. My husband has back problems and it has helped his lower back, hip, and knee pain.
-Cherie Rex (Student of AYS)
The mission statement of AYS teacher training:
Prepare instructors to teach a consistent AYS class. Offering a one-hour combination of strength, stability, balance, breath, and flexibility; through postures and exercises with and without hand, weights provide students with a mindful, safe workout that will effectively change their bodies and leave them feeling relaxed and energized.
"AYS teacher training was a perfect combination of yoga and weight training. Coming from a group fitness background, I really appreciated her Savasana visualizations and the mind-body aspect of the training. This class has it all and students love the way the class is laid out and I love how easy it is to use the class template to create new classes "
-Sally Tulk (Group fitness Instructor)
“AYS teacher training offers such a great opportunity to explore and experience this exciting new dimension of yoga. Marda brings incredible knowledge and enthusiasm to every class and takes the time to make sure everyone feels confident in their understanding of the information. The learning materials are clear and well-structured and provide a treasure trove of resources to help new teachers build sequences, strengthen alignment cues or simply expand their learning. Most importantly, Marda creates a really fun and inviting space to learn, and she encourages each person to find and nurture their own unique teaching style and voice. I definitely walked away feeling ready and inspired to teach AYS!"
-Sandy Palm (RYT 200)
"I have to give Marda so many kudos for the content and quality of her AYS Teacher Training. The course is extremely well organized and there were thoughtful demos incorporated as well an extensive manual. The manual also contained three made for you classes and a template with her nine sections format so that I can create my own classes easily. I feel like every attention to detail has been paid and you will come away with a thorough understanding of the AYS format and ready to teach right away!"
-Jennifer Brock (RYT 200)
"Marda’s alignment yoga sculpt class was exactly what I needed. The flow and her choice of poses is fun and she offers modifications as well as challenges. I personally appreciated the use of weights. Marda has a calming voice and leads the class with specific direction, paying attention to alignment. I highly recommend her class for any level. "
