- About Us
Hailing from Topeka, Kansas, Marissa moved to New York City to pursue a BFA in dance at NYU Tisch School of the Arts. It was in her pursuit of her college education that she met and studied yoga under TaraMarie Perri. Drawn to the supportive alignment and therapeutic aspects of yoga, Marissa became a licensed Mind Body Dancer® yoga teacher with The Perri Institute for Mind and Body, a teaching community dedicated to education and research in the arts and mind-body studies. www.perriinstitute.com.
All yoga classes taught by TaraMarie Perri and Mind Body Dancer® teachers are rooted in a safe, alignment-based, breath-focused, mindful-flow style and are appropriate for anybody interested in cultivating sustainable pathways of the body and mind. Classes are thoughtful and detailed, educational and expressive, as they flowingly pair energetic imagery and anatomical themes. New practitioners create stable foundations, experienced yogis refine and re-connect, and those in between explore and experiment within the range of your body and mind's remarkable capacity.
