About Marissa

Marissa is the owner/founder of Alt Yoga and the co-owner of Alternative Wellness Therapies where she works as a therapist. She is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and a Registered Yoga Teacher-200 (RYT-200).

Marissa started Alt Yoga on a whim, after hosting the area’s first alternative yoga event. The yoga event blasted heavy metal and included comedy, swearing, laughter, and some unique hand gestures to go with the yoga poses! It was a style of yoga that was needed and has been a local favorite since its start in 2019. Marissa incorporates her clinical knowledge into her style of yoga, offering up a one-of-a-kind experience that will leave you feeling energized and free from the bullsh*t! 

Marissa is passionate about spreading the power of yoga and mental health and does so in a way that is both educating and entertaining. She has presented at workshops, trainings, fairs, and retreats, for various types of professions and participants. Marissa enjoys combining her knowledge and skillset of mental health with the powerful benefits of yoga. She enjoys presenting and educating others about the clinical evidence between mental health and yoga.
