Play • 39 min

Join Sarah as she discusses valuing yoga teachers in the studio environment with Marcela Xavier, Founder & Program Director of Bread and Yoga.

You can connect with Marcela at www.breadandyoga.com or on Instagram.

Marcela Xavier is an introvert with big dreams. Originally from Brazil, Marcela was born into a big family with some really strong women that deeply influenced her path. From her grandmother (who was always cooking) to her mother and aunts (always full of wisdom and opinions), each had a very specific impact on guiding who Marcela is. She moved to the US at the age of 18 and has been forging her own path ever since. Marcela founded Bread and Yoga, a small community studio in the Inwood neighborhood in Upper Manhattan in 2009. She is  an experienced yoga teacher and holistic health counselor, a labor support doula and childbirth educator. She is committed to being a community catalyst, creating programming that informs, challenges and inspires her community. Bread and Yoga was/is very much a dream anchored in making an impact by building an inclusive healing and gathering space for the community.

When not at the studio Marcela is hanging out with her husband and two teenagers, cooking and eating, occasionally sewing, and always dreaming.
