Marley’s extensive background in dance and psychology helped set the foundation for her career as a yoga instructor to children and adults.   At the age of 3 she began dancing, and took her first yoga class 4 years later.  Continuing her studies in ballet and modern dance for the next 20 years, Marley graduated from Goucher College where she studied Eastern and Western psychology, labanotation, movement analysis, Skinner Releasing Technique, and Bartenieff Fundamentals.

In 2006, Marley received her 200 hour yoga teacher training from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health.  She spent the next 3 years dedicated to completing both a 200 and 500 hour teacher training program with an emphasis on yoga therapeutics at Golden Heart Yoga in Annapolis MD.   It was here that she had the opportunity to study with some extremely talented yoga masters including Rod Stryker, Victor Van Kooten, and Arthur Kilmurray.  Marley has also done various workshops with, but not limited to, Shiva Rea, John Friend, and Doug Swenson.

Marley has spent the past 4 years in the Baltimore, MD area teaching both private and group classes to children and adults. Although mainly influenced by Kripalu, Para Yoga, and Anusara yoga, Marley brings elements of various styles of yoga into her yoga sessions.  She is trained in prenatal yoga, yoga for athletes, mommy and me yoga, kids yoga, preteen and teen yoga, and yoga for special conditions.  She specializes in one-on-one yoga therapy for people with chronic and acute medical conditions. She has experience teaching workshops to those of all ages covering a wide range of yogic concepts.

Emphasizing breath, alignment, and body awareness, her goal is to help all students foster a better sense of self by finding the connection between their body, mind and spirit. Marley is nationally registered with the Yoga Alliance and has recently relocated to Davis, CA where she will continue to share her passion for helping others through yoga.
