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, a 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 to all levels from beginner to expert and always provide the perfect challenge. The variety and intelligence she puts into creating her beautiful flow classes shows her passion and caring 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 with 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)
