I work with Women of Color to show up as their most powerful selves in life and at work


Do you feel stuck in certain life areas and don’t know how to move forward?


IGNITE YOUR SHIFT A 3-month transformation program including one-on-one individualized coaching and an immersive weekend retreat that will nourish your mind, body, and spirit.

Marla Teyolia

My coaching style and retreat programs empower clients to connect with their intuition, hone their unique talents, and craft radical visions to create lives of PURPOSE, JOY, and FREEDOM.

I offer programs for individual women and groups in the forms of retreats, self-care sister circles, and workshops.

“I participated in the first Ignite Your Shift Retreat in 2016. I admired Marla’s authenticity, strength, and empathy – qualities that enabled her to thoughtfully hold space, yet challenge, each of the participants to dig deeper, to reach higher. I left the retreat humbly aware of my power, inspired to live out my core values, and equipped with practical tools to shift every area of my life. Of these, visioning and goal setting have been particularly valuable as I build my first home. More importantly, I started on a mindfulness journey that is leading me to embrace change and seek opportunities in the midst of challenges, all while being intentional in nurturing joy.”

“Marla is a soul awakening vessel. She is driven from life experiences and open to sharing how to discover your next venture. She is someone that has the ability to scan her client. Sometimes it is scary, quite frankly. She comforts when she knows you’re uneasy and allows you the room to scream, cry, and rebel. She’s so easy to speak with and helps articulate the emotions, fears, and hopes that have been living inside of me. Marla is someone I think we all need on speed dial.”

“I came to Marla wanting to finally break through my money issues. I had been enjoying respect and success in my work, but I still struggled with getting paid. Working with Marla led me to a significant breakthrough – a deep understanding that I am still in awe of today. She helped me see the true meaning behind my unproductive patterns, and gave me the tools to light a new path. I can’t say enough about how helpful it has been to have her as a friend and guide!.”
