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 mindfulness and compassion meditation and other self-care practices throughout the NYC-area to specific populations such as international university students, parents, teachers, as well as the general public. 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

Marissa is wonderful! We used her for a PD session for the teachers. She created a Self Care for Teachers program for us, and introduced us to a new method of meditation that was super helpful. The meditation is not about suppressing feelings and 'calming down.' It is about relaxing the mind and then taking a calm look at a problem, investigating how it makes us feel, and giving ourselves the nurturing we need in order to handle the problem and take care of our feelings. Very very helpful, I have been using the technique every day since, and our teachers loved it. Highly recommended.

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!
