We are so very excited to introduce our newest team member, Liya Mar! You can catch her on the mat every Thursday evening at 6 PM for Yoga 4 Athletes and 7:15 PM for Slow Flow, starting November 30, 2017!
Liya grew up in a family with a regular meditation practice. She started her yoga journey when she was pursing her Ph.D. in Wisconsin. Yoga literally saved her from the chronic upper back shoulder pain which she suffered from the intensive graduate works. She finished her Vinyasa Yoga teaching training in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2017 before moving to Houston with her husband. She is currently studying for the NASM-CPT with an expected certificate in 2018!
Liya remembers, as a young child, meditation and breath work aren’t easy tasks, but with yoga, breathing and calmness comes naturally. Liya seeks to deepen her understanding of different lineages of yoga, as well as anatomy-based practices. She now teaches in schools, gyms and online. In her class, you’ll find inspiring music and strengthening sequences of asanas. Aside from yoga, she loves spending time in the gym, watching basketball, wondering in nature with her family and friends.
