Marisa’s love for yoga started similar to others…just by showing up to a class! And, it was from that first class, in the back row at The Hot Yoga Spot, she instantly developed a deep and passionate connection to her mat.

Marisa believes that the power of yoga reveals itself in opportunities to develop further; to test not only physical, but mental limits as well. She remains curious as a yoga practitioner and teacher, identifying perceived physical/emotional limitations, where she can live life more fully, and how to become better. As a leader, mother, friend, sister, and daughter. Simply put, to be better. She encourages a welcoming, warm, and fun environment, where we all can develop and expand limits together – in fact, we are better together!

Marisa is a Baptiste Tier 1 Certified Leader and has completed Level One training with Baron Baptiste, Level Two with Paige Elenson, Art of Assisting, Art of True North Alignment, and other Baptiste-related workshops and programs.

Off her yoga mat, Marisa enjoys running, spinning, hiking, traveling, singing with her band, spending time with friends and family, and copious amounts of dancing! In fact, for her, anything centered around music is the best! You can also find her ferociously cheering on her son, Tommy, at his many sporting games and events. She loves watching his passion for sport, witnessing his physical skillsets develop, and observing how he tests his physical and mental limits too!
