TESTIMONIALS

After thinking back on our call, I have nothing but positive things to say. Marisa really listened to my problems and gave me actionable items to help me achieve my goals. She inspired me to really go after what I want and gave me hope that it is achievable. I also feel like Marisa didn’t make me feel silly when I mentioned the positive things I was experiencing as a result of my meditations.”

After meeting with Marisa I left the session inspired to gather all of my ideas and thoughts and put it all into a format. A takeaway for me was to not be afraid of asking my clients or niche market for their feedback even in the early stages of my project.”

Working with Marisa has been such a pleasure from her intentionality to genuinely learn about who I am and how that plays a big role in my wellness journey to crafting delicious easy to follow meal plans. Her knowledge of the interconnections of mind, body, and spirit has provided a more holistic approach to how I learn to deepen my practice of yoga in my daily life including in how I make choices about what I eat. I have been empowered by her contagious energy to be creative in the kitchen and not see this wellness journey with a lens of all the can not’s but rather all the can’s and endless possibilities that come along with it. Working with Marisa has reminded me of how I show up for myself through the foods I eat is a manifestation of love for myself.”

Marisa is so positive, uplifting, inspiring, and encouraging, and I feel honored to have her support and mentorship. I was really nervous to go to my first yoga teacher audition and had no idea what to expect. As soon as I let Marisa know I was auditioning, she proactively and excitedly offered to guide me through the entire process of preparing myself to step into a yoga audition. She gave me multiple pep talks which enabled me to go through the entire audition with full confidence and positive energy which I believe was instrumental in helping me pass the audition and earn a spot as a teacher at the studio! Having Marisa as a mentor is priceless.”

Jenn Chang, yoga coaching
I hired Marisa to check my alignment in my fairly new regular yoga asana practice. During the goal-setting process, her knowledge about and inspirational way of discussing yoga philosophy piqued my interest. We ended up splitting our time between philosophy and asana, and I realized that yoga has a much more holistic place in my life. Marisa helped me accomplish my goal of creating a consistent yoga practice by revealing to me that when I think about my breathing, or use my home-made mala, or read the Yoga Sutras I am practicing yoga consistently.”

Marisa was enthusiastic, caring, and most importantly, respectfully tuned-in to the needs of the high school students that we brought in for two extended yoga sessions. Her instructions were carefully calibrated to adolescent ears and her responsiveness to their questions was well-considered and deliberate. We can’t thank Marisa enough for her expertise, her kindness, and for the empathy with which she guided our group. We were lucky to work with her.”

Marisa understands the close relationship between what we eat and our holistic health and implements that in all her personalized recipes for her clients. Her perspective on healthy eating will enable you to feel confident that what you’re eating is good for you and the greater agricultural ecosystem.”

We wanted to help our student athlete eat high protein, gluten free breakfasts. Marisa’s smoothies and energy bites are the best! For those looking for healthy grab & go ideas or families looking for help staying on the healthy gluten Free or vegan track, Marisa can help. She sends you a custom menu via Google docs, lists all ingredients, and is very open to changing up each offering depending on what is or isn’t popular with the family. Highly recommend!”
