Marilyn O'Toole

Marilyn took her first yoga class in 1971 and a seed was planted. Living in the fast lane at that time took precedence and she was not ready for the yoga pace. The seed germinated and eighteen years later blossomed as she started taking classes at the Freehold Yoga Center. For the twenty five years since Marilyn has been cultivating her practice, receiving her first teacher certification at Sivananda Yoga Retreat Bahamas in 1997, studying Ashtanga with David Swenson, and more. Marilyn was introduced to Anusara yoga at Dancing Foot Yoga. Her classes incorporate breathing and relaxation drawn from Sivananda with the alignment from Anusara.

Marga Cava

Marga Cava, PhD, E-RYT 200, started practicing yoga in high school, and it quickly became an integral part of her life. While studying Romance languages and living abroad, she studied with Iyengar masters and Buddhist and Tantric philosophers. After returning to the U.S., Marga began studying Anusara yoga with John Friend, Emily Huresky, Regina Grassia, and others. Her gurus and their method inspired her to begin teaching in 1999. More recently, Marga completed Wisdom Warrior Teacher Training with Desirée Rumbaugh and Karen Church. Marga bows in gratitude to all her teachers (family and friends) that have guided her on her journey.
As a Registered Yoga Alliance and Anusara-inspired teacher, Marga strives to facilitate a deeper understanding of bio-mechanical alignment and help her students tap into their inner wisdom and true light. Now, as co-founder of Align Amar Yoga, yoga instructor and high school teacher, she hopes to enrich her community by offering the practice of yoga, meditation, and mindful living.
