Sessions


We can work together one-one-one, one session at a time
or you can have a self-care mentorship with me
over the course of six or twelve sessions.
Select the option that suits you best.


I offer 3 kinds of private sessions
holistic energy balancing
integrative bodywork
therapeutic yoga with bodywork
(plus video chat calls to guide you)

Each of modality provides profound support for the physical and visceral systems of the body and creates an overall feeling of integration and peace.


holistic energy balancing

I also call this table work because you receive it while relaxing on a massage table (for some home visits we can opt to have it on the floor). It’s a combination of Reiki healing and intuitive energy balancing. I incorporate therapeutic grade essential oils to facilitate healing (either on my hands for aromatherapy or a drop on an acupoint to move energy).

Reiki  Healing -   Gentle, restorative touch on or just above the body to bring vitality into your physical body and energy field. It creates a soothing enveloping feeling of being held in a safe space.

Intuitive Energy Balancing - Visual, manual, and intuitive observation of where the body is holding tension coupled with gentle or energetic touch to facilitate release of tension restoration of vitality. Informed by knowledge of anatomy, physiology, energy lines, and empathic understanding. Sometimes includes breathing instruction, dialogue, or sounding.

Aroma Acupoint Therapy (AAT) - A healing system in which essential oils are applied on key acupressure points to balance energy for physical and subtle body healing. It can have profound effects on the nervous system and heal deep old schisms or patterns. Organic artisan quality essential oils are selected based on their healing properties and how they can balance certain meridian points for each individual.

I also refer to this as floor work because you receive the session on a cushioned floor mat, wearing comfy clothes. It’s a combination of three of healing methods that I’ve found to be most effective and enjoyable to receive: Thai Yoga Bodywork, Reiki energy work, and Aroma Acupoint Therapy. I observe the physical body, sense the subtle energy field and intuitive apply acupressure and gentle stretching while incorporating select essential oils and Reiki to enhance the overall benefits of the treatment.

This intuitive combination of healing methods alchemize sublimely to create deep systemic shifts that contribute to the resolution of emotional and physical discomfort as well as broaden consciousness.

I draw from extensive training in anatomy and biomechanics as well as my personal embodiment of the chakra system, Chinese Five Element Theory, and essential oils.

Personal guidance and support in yoga postures, slow-flow yoga, breathing techniques, and meditation to cultivate sustainable self-care; complemented by integrative bodywork.

I meet you where you are at and provide a safe, nurturing, informative experience. My grounding energy and embodiment of yoga practice serve as anchors and guides for you at any stage of your practice. I’m a steady partner in cultivating compassion and developing strength physically and mentally.

Asana is breath-centered hatha-vinyasa with respect for your physical and emotional energy levels. My anatomy trainings with Leslie Kaminoff and Jason Ray Brown combined with years working in a physical therapy clinic and giving bodywork ensure that the sequences, assists, and alignment cues are effective and safe. My background as a Prana yoga teacher trainer coupled with my innate empathic nature provide deep knowledge of the energetic systems of the body-mind. 

Working intuitively and in response to any requests, the session may include dynamic flow, inversions, restorative yoga postures, essential oils, spontaneous or deliberate sounding, anatomy training, and healing touch for a fully nourishing and transforming experience. Marisa has experience teaching women throughout pregnancy and after birth, designing programs for clients with chronic tension, pain, anxiety, depression or rehabilitating post surgery, and facilitating personal growth and healing through yoga and allied therapies. 

Each session is tailored to your needs and can be half yoga, half bodywork, or some ratio of the two that feels right.


Self-Care Packages

A series of sessions, any combination of the services listed above that will be beneficial for you. Based on the experience of each treatment, you and Marisa will choose what is helpful to receive next. As energy moves and changes occur, it can be helpful to utilize different modalities to support growth and healing. Combining methods in a short period time creates powerful results and offers new insights and information from different perspectives for the recipient to integrate into their self-awareness and self-care. Marisa offers recommendations for the timing of each following session and honors your intuition on when you would like to receive the next treatment.
