The standing poses connect us to Mother Earth, the ground we walk on. They give us the foundation upon to build our practice and teach us the combination of balance, strength, and flexibility we need to live our lives. With our feet firmly planted on the ground, we are free to rise or bend to meet the challenges of daily life.

“Marcela is one of my favorite teachers. She is a Buddhist nun and Iyengar teacher who has studied with Iyengar himself and the Dalia Lama. Her instructions are simple and very effective. I am thrilled she will be coming to Kent yoga and Bodyworks.” ~ Alina Hernandez
