About Morissa M.

Morissa teaches: Ages 18 and up
Teaching since: 2011
Last sign in: More than two months


In 2006 I began my personal journey with yoga. At first it was a way to lose a little weight and get free of some of the stresses of my daily work life. But, I quickly fell in love and soon devoted myself to daily practice. In 2011 I completed my first 200 hour yoga teacher certification course in hot yoga. In 2014 I decided to grow my knowledge and completed a second 200 hour certification in Vinyasa yoga. My teaching style can be personalized to best serve the student. My purpose as a yoga teacher is to provide students with a way to move forward in their own personal journeys. Yoga is an art and a science that can touch mind, body and soul. But each person's yoga path is his/her own, and we can work together to find you the balance, strength, flexibility, relaxation, courage, peace, understanding, or whatever it is you seek!

Morissa is a great teacher. Her classes are always so well thought out and structured. She is very creative with her flow and offers lots of guidance through out class, most especially during the peak pose. I love taking her class because I always feel calm and centered afterwards. I look forward to learning more from her.

An amazing Ashtangi, and an amazing Yoga teacher. Her passion for Yoga shines through on and off the mat. Morissa with her broad knowledge and dedication reflects on how she conducts her classes. She will be able to take you deeper into your Yoga practice with alignment and precision.
