My name is Marylisa, Owner of Manipura Healing Therapies. Whether it is guiding you through the birthing process, sharing in your yoga journey or helping you heal with deep tissue massage, I am committed to making your journey as radiant as the sun. I hold a BA in education since 2002 and worked as an Elementary and Preschool Teacher, for 10 Years. I am also, a Nationally Board Certified Massage Therapist since 2004, for 11 years now and a Certified Prenatal Massage Doula since 2012. I have now recently entered the yoga world, as a 200+ hour certified Yoga Instructor, graduating from YAMA YOGA, June 2014.
I enjoy connecting with people on a spiritual level and healing the body, mind, soul holistically. I have always been fascinated with life as a gift, the entire birthing process and eternal beauty of children and family. I am a proud mother of 2 amazing little girls, that are the truly special reflections of love. Therefore, I would like to focus my Yoga teaching on prenatal yoga & family practice, as well as, helping heal those who have suffered Grief and trauma. I would enjoy teaching a variety of classes such as, general basic fundamentals, gentle flow and yoga nidra, with a strong base in guided meditation and breathwork. I love learning and being able to bring new ideas to others. I plan to continue my trainings in Ayurvedic health principals and teaching mindfulness trainings to other educators. I enjoy doing a variety of things. So, I will continue practicing as a Massage Therapist and Doula, as well as, teaching prenatal, Swedish, deep tissue massage, and Eastern techniques, such as, Cranial sacral therapy, reflexology, and chakra healing, to new students. Life is your gift. The journey is your process. I can only provide tools to enhance the experience of the beautiful universal spirit you already are.
NAMASTE - The light within me honors the light with in you.
