Hi! I'm Marissa, a warm, friendly and highly trained meditation teacher and mindfulness coach. I began my journey in yoga and breath work 15 years ago as a way to reduce anxiety and unlock the body‘s natural healing potential. Since then I have completed 350 hours of meditation and yoga teacher training. Blending the wisdom of eastern traditions with modern science, I currently teach meditation and other self-care practices throughout the NYC-area. With over 15 years of experience in youth development and education, I am a compassionate leader and hope to inspire others to explore their inner world and ultimately live with more clarity, ease and love

When I decided to start meditating, I knew I would need someone to teach me, encourage me and give me the skills I needed to eventually progress by myself. Marissa was the perfect choice for a coach. Our weekly lessons were well prepared and included both the theory and practice of meditation while giving me the time I needed to ask questions and seek clarification. I simply could not have done this without Marissa. Excellent choice!

I have been practicing meditation and mindfulness independently since 2015. Marrisa helped me learn even more in-depth. Through her teaching, I learned how to cope with anxiety and stress, and I really enjoyed discovering new ways of living with compassion and peaceful mind. Very thankful for her. I highly recommend her!
