Meet Marisa Atula
She’ll be leading our weekly practice of breathwork, meditation, and gentle movement.
Marisa is a Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT-500), Continuing Education Provider (YACEP), and decade long student of yoga. She came to yoga out of curiosity but became enamored upon realizing its positive effect on her mental health. After years in a chronically stressful career as a criminal analyst, yoga was the only thing to offer relief and resilience. She became determined to understand yoga’s powerful healing properties. Marisa has studied with numerous yogis but calls Yogrishi Vishvketu her teacher. She earned her 200-hour certification at a power studio in southern California, her 500-hour at Anand Prakash Ashram (with Y. Vishvketu), an 85-hour Prenatal training with Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa (at Golden Bridge Yoga), 10 hours of continuing education with clinical psychiatrist Dr. Bessel van der Kolk (author of The Body Keeps the Score: Mind, Brain, and Body in the Healing of Trauma) and countless educational workshops and classes. You can expect a theme of comfort in Marisa’s classes – a comfortable environment for you to try something new or intimidating (whether that’s simply showing up to your first class or trying something new), to create comfort in the body, and comfort in the relationships between our various selves (body, mind, spirit).
