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
Teacher training with Marlena Bruno at Mantra Yoga was a life changing experience. I feel that it has prepared me to be an effective yoga teacher. I look forward to applying all the information I learned at Mantra Yoga for years to come! Thank you Marlena
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.
Could not be happier with the training we received. Marlena truly prepared us to be teachers not just instructors. Every one of my peers left this training fully competent and confident that we are ready to provide the highest quality classes to our students
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.
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.
There is so much to love about this studio. The assortment of classes means there's something for everyone. The atmosphere is calm and soothing and temperature just right. I love that I felt welcome from my very first class.
MANTRA is a fantastic studio and Marlena and all the instructors are amazing. If you want a low-stress, no judgement, relaxed yoga experience, this is your place. Everyone is super friendly and no matter your level, you'll enjoy all classes. The studio is super clean and there are always plenty of props for a great class!
I went to my first ever yoga class. Marlena was very responsive to all of my questions via email prior to me coming in. Diana was a wonderful instructor. Very helpful and I loved her class. I will continue to go and have already signed up for 2 more classes to try this week!
Every time I visit Mantra, it's like the weight of the world lifts off my shoulders! Such a great community and the team of instructors. Thankful to have been a member over a year and a half and look forward to many more classes!
Really didn't realize until this morning but the Bhakti Immersion changed my life and I truly have had a spiritual awakening love - love- love - loved it beginning to the end, it had me engaged the whole time. I would do it every weekend.
