Marissa first discovered the power of yoga while living in Baltimore city in 2007, attending graduate school and searching for a healthy outlet to balance stress and establish a consistent workout routine. The physical and mental demands of hot yoga, positive environment, and desire to learn more- kept Marissa coming back to her mat. A few major life changes later- a move to Hawaii, and self discovering journey lead her to delve deeper and complete a 200RYT from Corepower Yoga Hawaii- heavily Baptiste and Iyenger inspired. Yoga became therapy, a safe place to turn inward despite the external world- which lead to a better version of self. Marissa guides with compassion, influenced by a medical career working with the Brain Injury population -creating a judgment-free space of encouragement and limitless beliefs. With mind-body-spirit connection; happiness, self-love and a balanced life are always available.
