Healer Teacher




"The human soul doesn’t want to be advised or fixed or saved. It simply wants to be witnessed — to be seen, heard and companioned exactly as it is.  Parker J Palmer  

My deepest intentions and most valuable skills as a healer and teacher are: using patience, respect, courage, and compassion to see, hear, and companion your whole being in a way that helps you see, hear, and companion yourself.   

I give intuitive healing sessions, integrative bodywork, and yoga guidance — all with refined technical skill and deep energetic awareness. I can support you with acute or chronic issues and navigating any intense personal shift.

I work one-on-one, lead group classes, provide online audio lessons, and share my writing as ways to support you. 

Ways we can connect


Private Sessions

Through years of self-study and learning from masters in the field of yoga and healing, and from 13 years of practice, these sessions have evolved into integrative experiences that acknowledge and support your whole being whether the main modality is yoga, bodywork, or energy work. 

I love working with people seeking pain relief, emotional and mental support, a sustainable self-care routine, deep systemic healing, and a stronger embodiment of spiritual principles.


Meditation with Marisa 

FREE recordings posted weekly

For about ten minutes each week, I sit down and intuitively record a guided meditation that you can listen to as often as you like. I post links on the Listen page of this website and they are also on my SoundCloud page. Listen, share, enjoy. 



Insights and Contemplations

Since I spend my days observing nature, being present in my body, witnessing my thoughts and emotions, literally making it my job to live and teach with yoga principles as my anchor and compass, it comes naturally that I'd have pooled considerable resources in the form of insights and understandings. As well as questions. Writing is a way for me to explore those questions and share those resources. May my explorations and expressions be of some benefit to you as well.
