Marissa Victoria :

Integrity, growth, strength, trust, faith and surrender~ were just a few of the many concepts that instantly drew Marissa into her first yoga class over a decade ago; and where her life was forever changed.

Personal and spiritual growth kept Marissa practicing yoga and meditation daily while increased physical health, strength, and a deeper relationship to life became the outcome. Marissa chose to step onto her mat dedicated to her purpose to teach, with a passion to share and spread such a potent and powerful way of life. She weaves yogic philosophy, pranayama, meditation, biomechanics and alignment into her classes. Her classes are dynamic and fun, challenging yet accessible, invigorating and transformational. Whether you come for a restorative Yin class or an energizing Vinyasa class you can expect to enrich your mind, nourish your body, ease your nerves and drop into the heart. Classes are often curated with sound, aromatherapy and an occasional live musical offering from one of the several instruments Marissa plays. She has led international and local yoga retreats, teaches at yoga & art festivals and hosts an expansive variety of workshops in the Bay Area and Santa Cruz, CA.

Marissa holds her 200 & 300hr(IP) certifications in yoga alongside of her current completion of the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) personal training certification and completion of her B.S. in Kinesiology. Just some of the many teachers that have inspired her include: Ana Forrest, Shiva Rae, Giselle Mari, David Swenson, Kino MacGregor, Tias Little and Katie Silcox.
