About Ms. Marissa

My personal yoga practice has helped me to love myself as I am and connect to my heart to lead a happier, more purposeful life. It gave me the courage to live and work in China for three years! While visiting home I was drawn to Kidding Around Yoga to connect more with the children in China (while helping with their English!) After witnessing how yoga helped the children in China I knew I wanted to to reach as many yogis as I could at a young age to give them the proper tools to deal with everyday circumstances and make the world a better place by listening to their hearts and following their dreams…just as we teach in KAY, “Peace begins with me.”

I am now a certified 200 E-RYT working with children and adults with varying challenges and abilities. I believe yoga is for EVERY body and everyone should be able to experience it at their own pace.

Kidding Around Yoga has blessed my life and I love sharing that light with lots of little yogis!

The Magic of Kidding Around Yoga

When children experience KAY classes, they are not only building physical strength and flexibility, they are learning skills that will provide mental and emotional benefits throughout their lives! The magic of Kidding Around Yoga is our unique class programming. KAY teachers are experts in meeting each child’s needs, providing creative activities, games, songs, and crafts based on traditional yoga and meditation practices.

Our children live in a busy world and KAY classes are an oasis providing a safe place to be creative, move freely, and experience calm. We look forward to being part of your child’s day!

Girl Scouts

Hello local Scouts and neighborhood leaders!

I would love the opportunity to introduce the Science of Yoga to your troop/den and help them earn a Yoga Fun Patch.

While teaching the Science of Yoga, KAY provides a curriculum that is specifically designed to help children be active, learn to relax, improve focus, and have FUN in a non-competitive environment. I will offer a class customized for your troop level, which can include a special scout story, meditation techniques, games, activities, and much more!

I teach all troop/den levels and can even do private sessions as well.

I look forward to hearing from your organization to schedule a class soon.

Private Sessions

Private One-to-One Sessions

Each one-to-one session is tailored to the child’s unique interests and will provide them with self-regulation tools, mobility exercises, relaxation techniques, and meditation in a fun and comfortable atmosphere (their home)! All necessary props, mats and essentials are provided. Your child will build a practice that can continue to be used throughout life, both on and off of the mat.

Private sessions are a great way to bring yoga to the little yogis in your life and give them individual attention to foster meaningful relationships while we share the tools and philosophies of yoga.

I also work with children with varying challenges and abilities and accept self-direction from approved agencies.

“My daughter absolutely loves the classes she takes with Ms.Marissa. She has amazing energy and an overall sense of calm/happiness that my daughter simply soaks in. My daughter often practices the movements that Miss. Marissa teaches her in class at home when she gets stressed. We highly recommend trying Miss. Marissa’s classes!”

“My son Joseph has Down Syndrome and Marissa works with him once a week. I cannot say enough good things about her and her class with Joe. He responds very well to her prompts and she can hold his attention for a long span of time. He looks forward to working with her and enjoys the whole class!”
Jeanine R.

“Marissa hosted our Brownie meeting with a Chinese New Year theme. Her expertise shined through her upbeat and charismatic presentation of the yoga movements and the guided craft. She skillfully tailored each pose to the participant’s flexibility level. Awesome communication throughout the planning process.”
Jean Dodd, Girl Scout Leader
