Marlena seriously changed my life forever during my 200HR, and for the better at that! Her teaching style is so down to earth, raw and real. And she manages to keep it true to our modern day world without losing the rich philosophy yoga was born out of. 11/10 stars
My training at Mantra Yoga with Marlena Bruno provided me with an in-depth knowledge of yoga philosophy and the physical asanas. Marlena teaches from her heart, is truly passionate about making sure her trainees understand the importance of safety, proper alignment and authenticity in teaching.Her standards are high and I feel she prepared me to teach yoga with confidence.
The Mantra Yoga Teacher Training Program absolutely exceeded my expectations. Marlena Bruno is an exceptional talented teacher who simplifies the complex, thoroughly supports all her students while guiding you to your full potential. Marlena's breathe of knowledge is priceless. I highly recommend Mantra Yoga Teacher Training Program.
Marlena generously shared her deep knowledge, love and experience of yoga. One of her mantras is "yoga is not yours to keep but to share". She authentically lives this mantra. Not only does she teach physical asanas with clarity and joy, she also shares her love of yogic philosophy, mantras and all 8 limbs of yoga. Marlena is deep and genuine always noting that our life is a practice not a perfection! She encourages everyone to find their growing edge and lean into a life of self study, physical practice, meditation and service to others
My training experience at Mantra, exceeded any/all expectations! Marlena Bruno is incredibly talented, knowledgeable, genuine and most importantly, accepting! She has created a community that is just as accepting and supportive as she is. I 10/10 would recommend her training and her studio to anyone thinking about starting this journey!
After many years of contemplating completing my Yoga Teacher Training, I finally found my match at Mantra.
Marlena not only is an amazing yoga teacher when it comes to asanas (postures), but even more so when it comes to philosophy, meditation, sequencing, pranayama, Ayurveda, and so much more. She has a wealth of knowledge that she shares so passionately.
Mantra is a very welcoming studio. Marlena is an expert teacher who guides her students into opening their bodies and minds through breath and movement. I left feeling lighter, clearer and refreshed!

Marlena has created a fabulous space at Mantra Yoga. Every instructor is top shelf.
The studio is peaceful & beautiful. What a wonderful community for every offering from Yin to flow to sound healing workshops. Grateful for Mantra Yoga Danvers!!! What a gift, t u Marlena!
I recently took my first in studio yoga class at Mantra. The instructor knew I was a beginner and made me feel quite comfortable. From time to time she would come over and make some discreet corrections. I will definitely be back for more practice

I recently went back to Mantra after being away for some months. I knew I would go back because it has always been a peaceful place. I went to Marlena's class for the first time and enjoyed it. It was a great class for a Friday end of the day. Just what is needed - relaxing and winding down after the end of the week.
