Don't let this "petite trainer" fool you, Mayara is tough. Originally from Brazil, Mayara has always been a life-long athlete, playing several sports during her childhood. She trained in soccer, swimming and judo, but volleyball became her passion. She played for 8 years, including 4-hour practices 4 times a week!

After moving to the Bay Area, Mayara found the Megaformer to be the super-athletic challenge she was looking for: high intensity, but with low-to-no impact on her joints and spine. She found it exhilarating and exciting, and as an instructor, she's determined to help others experience the same thrill in every one of her classes!
