How will Marissa’s Yoga Instruction Help You?
Although Marissa is qualified to teach all levels of vinyasa, yin, kids yoga, & pre-natal, her preferred yoga style is a creative power vinyasa. Vinyasa yoga is extremely popular all over the world, but she interjects her own style to enhance the flow for her students in four ways.
1. Creative Transitions and Release Techniques
You will learn different transitions from pose to pose, and experiment with free movement and release techniques which she learned through her dancing.
2. Empathetic Instruction
Marissa pushes her students, but is intuitive enough to see when a student needs to take a child’s pose or short rest. She is confident enough to place her hands on her students and mindfully assist or adjust them in postures.
She will observe to see where your struggles and strengths are, and takes time to properly break down poses offering tools (such as modifications) to help ease any struggles.
Above all else, she teaches that the most important part of each asana is the breath.
“If you are forcing yourself into a pose that is so uncomfortable you have lost complete breath awareness, you gain nothing and risk injury.”-Marissa
4. Respect for your Body
Yoga is not all about the postures, it’s about honoring the body by listening to it and understanding when you need to back out of a pose or go further.
Marissa reminds her students to pause in each asana and acknowledge the current rhythm of the breath.
