Marlo Ziegler E-RYT200, RCYT began teaching Yoga after completing her RYT200 at YogaChi, Birmingham in 2003 after falling in love with the her first “real” Yoga class in 2001
Marlo, Owner and Founder of Chela Yoga LLC opened its doors in 2012.
Chela Yoga Studio is a Yoga Alliance Accredited School (RYS200) since 2011. Marlo’s original RYT200 certification was in Ashtanga/Vinyasa which she taught and practiced regularly up until a few years ago when her own practiced shifted due to multiple injuries. Her teaching style has since changed to a more restorative and adaptable Hatha practice focused on personal alignment and “Feel Good” movement.
We are known to most as a community with like minded teachers working on the healing art of Yoga. Meditation, and Pranayama work are the forefront of the classes led at Chela Yoga, where a variety of classes are taught. From Slow Flow Vinyasa, Gentle Hatha, Yin, and Restorative, all classes are design with the students needs in mind and are adapted accordingly in an all inclusive and welcoming setting.
Our Chela Family, students and teachers put a lot of focus into its charitable events, from Adopting a road in Waterford just down the street from its Highland location, to its Community Garden located at Hess Hathaway in Waterford feeding the community through Open Door, to its countless event raising money and goods for such non-profit organizations such as Common Ground (Pontiac), Care House of Oakland County (Pontiac), Affirmations (Ferndale), Detroit Zen Center (Hamtramck) and many more.
Chela Yoga also has a small rental space for local Healers, and Massage therapist to use complete with its own waiting room,salt lamps, a calming atmosphere and a massage table. In the front lobby located in the rear of the building, we have a small retail section housing local hand crafted items from local small businesses, including handmade soaps and beauty products from Ma Belle Lune to Yoga books, mats, towels, blocks, and our very own Chela swag.
