Marisa Hallsted

Marisa was raised by yoga teachers and has been practicing her whole life. Her relationship with yoga has changed over the years to match the various phases of her life from purely physical, to diving into the yogic philosophies, to deeply spiritual. Her mat has always been a place to come and meet herself exactly where she is. The practice of yoga has weaved its way into the practice of her life; show up, take action, breathe, let go, reach a new level, rest, repeat. Life has become her yoga and her practice allows her to marvel at the mystery with way more peace.
Her teaching certifications started in 2015 with a 200 hour in Hatha Yoga, 100 hour in tantric meditation, 100 hour embody dance certification and her absolute favorite, becoming a BODYalive teacher in 2023! Marisa is Reiki Master and Certified Shamanic Practitioner who offers Energy Healing through our Alchemy Spa
When asked "What does Shakti mean to you?"
Embodying the energy of Shakti allows me to feel fully ALIVE, embracing
change and creation as part of feeling more connected to my body, my life,
my community and my passions on and off my mat.
