Tuesday Night Yoga 6:15-7:15 pm
Mara Watts, an Asheville native, and a 200-Hour Certified Yoga Teacher began her journey with yoga in 2006. She fell so in love with her practice that she practiced every chance she got – in her mom’s living room floor, in the dorm, outside, in the car, in a hotel room, anywhere she could manage to move and stretch. After exploring yoga for a few years, Mara decided to pursue her certification and applied for a 200-hour teacher training at Asheville Community Yoga in 2014, during her second pregnancy! There, she discovered her love for serving others through teaching Vinyasa, Gentle Flow and Yin style classes. Mara’s classes are fun, playful, creative and heartfelt!
Mara loves yoga because it makes her feel good inside and out and loves offering that to others on the yoga mat. Her hope is that you step off of the mat feeling balanced and renewed.
