About Marlena

Marlena Headshot

Marlena Lambert’s yoga practice dates back over 40 years, but she only began teaching yoga in 1998, about the time she began to practice insight meditation. In 2000, she decided to study bodywork to improve her teaching. Since 2002, she has been a professional body worker (LMT) as well as a teacher of yoga, anatomy, and insight meditation. Her passion is the continuing study of anatomy and physiology as it relates to wellness.

She holds a Master of Science in Anthropology, with an emphasis in South Asian culture, and worked for over a decade in science education at the Natural History Museum of Utah. Marlena is also recognized by the National Yoga Alliance as "E-RYT-500," an experienced registered yoga teacher with over 500 hours in training. In truth she has more than ten times that in education and experience.

Marlena's knowledge of yoga and her meditative style bring incredible sensitivity to her bodywork practice, and her knowledge of the body brings unusual depth to her understanding of hatha yoga and insight meditation, as does her background in education and South Asian studies, and her experience as a walking pilgrim.
