About Marla

Marla credits the vast teachings of Yoga for the empowered life she leads today. Her life’s work is to share any practice that serves to enrich the lives of others. A keen interest in subtle energy, transpersonal psychology and exploring the nature of what it means to be human mingle with her academic credentials in exercise science and philosophy to form a broad foundation of what she has to offer as a teacher. Marla was awarded Canadian Fitness Presenter of the Year twice (2002 & 2007) by the Canadian Association of Fitness Professionals. In the fitness realm, Marla continues to pioneer the mind-body movement with reverence to the wisdom traditions. As a yoga and meditation teacher (E-RYT 500), her style reflects an appreciation of the principles that govern human performance while encouraging transformation through embodied presence. She has a deep respect for the Buddhist teachings and her approach to Yoga is infused with this living wisdom. Marla is the owner and director of Empower ME Yoga & teacher training academy in Ottawa, Canada. She is a mentor to students of the Insight Yoga Institute, a graduate of the acclaimed Mindfulness Yoga & Meditation program at Spirit Rock in California and she facilitates conferences, retreats, teacher training and experiential intensives internationally.
