Maral was born in Buenos Aires and at the age of eight Miami suddenly turned into her second home.

She was always interested in physical activity growing up – thanks to her fitness fiend mom! She did her time in everything from ballet to gymnastics to soccer, but really got into her daily dance, aerobics, and yoga routine in her mid teens – variety and balance reigned!

At the age of 28 she fell in love with yoga all over again!

Iyengar Yoga is her passion, it’s the style that has kept her coming back to her practice time and time again. Focusing her studies with certifed Iyengar teachers Javier Wilensky and Colleen Gallagher was the logical next step! Ten years of practice clicked and the choice to become an instructor came naturally. Her inner desire to deepen her knowledge not only of the practice, but more importantly of herself, led her to a 200 HR RYT Certification via  All You Can Yoga.

Maral’s Alignment Based classes integrate her love of variety with the fundamentals of alignment. She brings humor and a softness to the practice that motivates the students to work hard.
Maral excels at a detail-oriented approach that allows students to explore themselves physically and challenge themselves mentally, all while discovering contentment with where they’re at.
