Kayla Marmaras | yogi session | Taunton, MA

This shoot was a lot of fun. Kayla is a lot of fun! I loved her hanging pant window so much that I requested we take photos in her dining room before taking off to shoot in some tall pines. Her home + DIY projects are as amazing as her yoga classes - I can’t say enough good things about this genuine, murder mystery watching’, hilarious human.

MINDBODY APP +++ Kayla’s class schedule + info:

THURSDAY: 5:45 AM
HIIT & Flow (Unheated) >> @ OPEN DOORS YOGA STUDIO - TAUNTON, MA

This 60 minute class has two parts. 30 minutes of High Intensity Interval Training (Cardio and strength intensive) followed by 30 minutes of vinyasa flow to cool down. High Intensity Interval Training uses timed segments to move through high cardio and strength segments, followed by short rest breaks. This format kicks the body into fat burn mode and breaks a serious sweat. The class will be followed by a 30 minute flow to cool the body down and stretch everything out.
