Breathe Every Day In May


Suddenly everyone is busy again! We're back in the office, schools are having events, we're going out and getting together again! It is exciting and possibly a bit overwhelming..!  

This month self care must support and expand your lifestyle. 


Breathe Every Day In May is a small feat of diligence that could have a big impact. In addition to improving physical wellbeing, you might also enjoy more stable moods, better sleep, enhanced sexual desire, and a sharper mind.


The CHALLENGE consists of this--breathing optimally for 1 min (5 breaths), then adding another minute on each day.

Your Breathe Every Day In May support package includes:

  •     Entry into The Breathing Challenge, complete with regular accountability checks and a prize upon completion!

  •     Unlimited Zoom Yoga!! Practice yoga every week (or more) and observe how the breath work impacts practice.

  •     Pre-recorded content weekly. FOUR short audio/video guides will enable you to maintain consistency on your own schedule.


Cost is $150. 


Looking & Breathing: A 6-Week Course 


This is an opportunity for individuals and couples to dive deeper with me into yoga psychology. Just like on the podcast! Except that, in our 6 sessions together, we will customize this vast breadth of yoga wisdom to YOUR unique personal journey in a practical, user-friendly way.


In addition to exploring time-honored yoga philosophies and methodologies, our sessions may incorporate movement, breath, meditation, talk, tarot and thai massage. You will be heard, and you will practice hearing yourself.

If you are grappling with questions around relationships? Parenting? Stress management? General well-being? Or a search for meaning? Are you an artist? Are you coping with trauma? Are you feeling angry, anxious, addicted, or apathetic..?

This course is for you!

In yoga, we say it takes 40 days to affect change--START NOW!

Schedule a Preliminary Phone Consultation free of charge!

$600/6 weekly 90 minute sessions, includes access to group classes

"When was the last time you attended a yoga class and knew everyone's name?

The small classes form a strong community...a truly supportive, non-judgmental setting to practice...Mara is a creative teacher who makes the familiar unfamiliar...her excellent instruction is clear, soothing and gently demanding."

Mara Hesed has been doing yoga for half her life. She took her first class at The Ashtanga Yoga Shala in Seattle in the nineties. To pay for her yoga education, she cleaned the studio. Six days a week she’d wake at 5am, clean the toilets, then practice with the rising sun. (And she was not, nor has she ever been, a morning person!) But the yoga deeply compelled her. They say that people who take to yoga like that have already been doing it in past lives. Perhaps? Anyway it has definitely been an important part of Mara's current path. 

Mara has been teaching yoga for over 15 years. Trained at the oldest studio in Los Angeles, she has taught 3-13 classes weekly ever since. (She does take holidays off, though she's rarely sick. And while she was in a yoga class only hours before her daughter was born, she did take maternity leave for about a month after birthing both babies!) 

Mara has led retreats, workshops, managed and taught in yoga studios. She started her own studio called hOM, originally operating out of her living room. Later she began making house calls for small groups, couples and individuals. Currently she teaches students in their living rooms all across space and time...on ZOOM.

"Mara truly creates the feeling of hOM."
