Marissa Allyn, RYT

Marissa found her way to the mat years ago in high school and with encouragement from a close friend and her first teacher, she continued with the practice. Eventually she fell in love with the calming effect it had on her physical body and chaotic “monkey mind”. Her classes reflect her own disposition creating a trusting and sunny space to welcome her students. Marissa’s style can be best described as challenging yet mindful. She reminds her students to think of her classes as a whole body moving meditation; a consciousness linking each physical pose with each inward breath. Her classes leave the practitioner feeling strong and balanced. Marissa holds both her 200 and 500 hour teacher training certifications with Fluid Yoga School, as well as certifications in SPA and HEALing yoga. Marissa is forever deepening her knowledge and holds an Ayurvedic Yoga certification with Shiva Shakti Yoga School. She enjoys practicing and studying Tibetan philosophy and meditation with Buddhist scholar Robert Thurman. Marissa offers both private and group classes in yoga and meditation as well as frequently hosts integrated workshops. When not teaching yoga she enjoys spending time with her husband and dog at the beach or in the woods.
