Meet Yoga Teacher and Savasana Representer Marisa Wolfe

What type of yoga do you teach?

Thai Yoga Massage | Breath-based Yoga (Kripalu, Viniyoga)

Which studio/s?

Here, there, and everywhere.

Where is your favorite place to practice yoga?


What do you like the most about practicing there?

The connection with the world around me. It’s so easy for me to go inside myself and practicing in nature keeps me a little more connected to the world around me. I always learn more from the world around me than I expect.

How do you practice yoga off the mat?

Every minute, every day.

The world ends tomorrow. What would you indulge in tonight?

The best meal of my life with all my favorite beings.

What was your first experience as a yoga teacher?

Freaking out about a practice teach in YTT, then realizing that what I offered was a different experience than anyone would have with any other teacher and it was all good.

What is your favorite food?

Is it cliche to say chocolate?

Imagine you’re on the cover of Yoga Journal. What pose would you strike?

Savasana. It’s not the most photogenic but it’s the most important and so under-represented.

What inspires you to teach yoga?

Seeing the discoveries students make as they get to know themselves better. Helping people move out of pain and suffering into ease and joy. Experiencing these same things within myself is also what inspires my personal practice.

If you could teach yoga anywhere in the world, where would it be?

All places are good places 🙂

What has been your most embarrassing yoga moment as a teacher or practitioner?

Not sure that any one thing stands out. Standing in front of a class in leggings has helped me to roll with whatever comes… and alot of stuff comes.

What would you say to someone who is on the fence about practicing yoga?

Don’t judge yoga until you have tried a few different teachers/styles. There is a yoga for everyone and it is worth the search.

What music are you jamming to right now?

Anything Puerto Rican!

What has been the most rewarding thing about being a teaching yoga?

I get to meet the coolest people and see them in their best moments.
