About Marca Hughes
Marca Hughes started Bodhi Yoga LLC, now known as Yoga W/ Marca in 2008. She has been teaching and building a yoga community in the Mount Horeb and surrounding Madison area since 2005. She discovered yoga in the 90's while attending college and has continuied to study yoga since. Her love of yoga has been mainly fostered and cultivated by the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar and she continues to train in this tradition under the Iyengar methodology. Marca knows yoga as a medium for cultivating inspiration by way of moving precious energy through the body. Each class offers carefully designed sequencing to explore the depths of the physical body in effort to still the mind. Her class offerings cater to all levels as her philosophy is one of inclusivity and encouragement. Each class has a common thread emphasizing breath, internal awareness, alignment, and grounding. She aims to guide each student back to their true nature. Her classes close with a bow in "Namaste" which translates as "the light within me sees the light within you".
