Mara's Story

Mara Kazantzaki

After a highly successful career in the media industry and then becoming a mother, Mara realised that the world of motherhood was not being elevated for those who have been successful in their professional life. 

Parental Equity Advocate
Mara Kazantzaki

Mara took it into her own hands and started inspiring women to break free from the traditional notion of parenthood and change how they are being supported.


By focusing on their well-being, mothers are finding solace in Mara's world; a safe space to pause, breathe, and develop.

Beyond Motherhood™️: Luxury Experiences was created out of necessity to support the nurturers, givers, and most important people in the world - those who raise the next generation.

"If you haven’t experienced Mara yet, you are delaying access to a phenomenal being"

"Mara Kazantzaki is the epitome of calm, stretched out and wrapped in a warm smile that exudes strength, vulnerability, and resourcefulness.


As a storyteller, her words can envelop you and bring you into her experience as if you were with her the moment each element occurred.


As an expert, you feel her power and her patience as she creates ways to share ideas, solutions, and encouragement exactly as you need to receive it.


If you haven’t experienced Mara yet, you are delaying access to a phenomenal being."

Mara is also the creator of breathe & pace, a boutique yoga community nested in a leafy part of North London.


Passionate about sharing the benefits of yoga on people's physical, mental, and emotional well-being, led her to achieve the highest level of training as a Yoga Educator and seamlessly integrate modern sports anatomy, breath work, meditation, and yoga philosophy to inspire and guide the community on their own transformative journey.

Mara has been mentoring newly trained yoga teachers, providing support as they embark on their new path.

"a gift I give to myself"

"I have been working with Mara for around 18 months now and I could not be happier. I experienced different “types” of teaching with her... for some months, we had a private group class, we moved to online coaching and I am now continuing with individual yoga training...


Mara has a very kind and attentive approach to her students. She genuinely wants to help you learn more about yoga and yourself, and I feel that every class with her is a gift I give to myself (and being a full-time working mom to two young children, it is truly a precious gift!).

Every asana with Mara has a purpose, and there is a clear intention behind her teaching. I feel like I grew as a person, a yoga student and as a mom since training with her, as she is helping me be more present, kinder, stronger and more in touch with myself."
