At the Atma Bhakti Yoga Center, our aim is to foster a community that nourishes the unity of the body, mind, and spirit. Our teachers seek to provide a nurturing environment to begin the journey of discovering what is already inside each of us.


NEW yoga class – Wednesday’s at 8 am Hatha Yoga with Mara

She  has been teaching yoga for 15 years, certified at 500 hour Teacher Training and believes yoga is a life-long training.   Mara creates a calm, peaceful and non competitive environment for strengthening  the body, and to encourage self-induced relaxation for observing the therapeutic effects of yoga. Choosing to study yoga as a career adjunct to midwifery, she sees Yoga as a natural segue to maintain her own health and vitality and continue in being of service.
She believes that the time spent on a mat can improve everyone’s state of well being, possibly finding a meditative state,  or simply a mood change.  This session is helpful to those who do too much, think too much and worry too much. After such an experience,  one can feel refreshed and renewed,  much like a pampering at the spa.
Mara is a certified Restorative Trainer from the school of Judith Lasater,  and has received  great mentoring  from  Michelle Andries,  Carol Stall and Jill Parr.


Prenatal Yoga with Mara is now Saturdays from 12 to 1:30pm

Mara Black, facilitator, trained midwife, doula, child educator and certified yoga teacher. With decades of experience teaching childbirth preparation and supporting women through this process, she brings wisdom and nourishment to mothers to be. The class encourages healthy attitudes, easy exercises, and comfortable positions to accommodate a growing baby. Relaxation and breath awareness is practiced, to prepare for the rigors of childbirth, and at a more subtle level, welcoming the baby and the trans formative power of motherhood.
