From the time she was very young, Marissa was a girl on the move.  From gymnastics to dance, figure skating to competitive swimming, she loved keeping an active, healthy lifestyle throughout her high school years and beyond.  So naturally when her Mother introduced her to yoga, she fell in love with the movement aspect it offered, along with its combination of balancing strength and softness.

After completing her bachelor’s degree in psychology, Marissa moved to LA to pursue a career in Public Relations. Not long after, she decided to move back to Miami and change course, completing a yoga teacher training.

Now instructing most days per week, Marissa strives to teach a soft yet powerful class. One that challenges your body and mind – as balance is very important to her.  She also loves to get creative and keep things fresh with her flows and playlists.

When Marissa isn’t on her mat teaching, you can find her working on her swimwear brand, Mahina Bikinis that she designs and manufactures here in Miami!
