Born and raised on Galveston Island, Marissa was initially drawn to the physical advantages of yoga. She soon found that yoga brought her a new outlook on life. Marissa is certified with the Yoga Alliance and received her 200 RTY certification in 2014 through Bodhin Yoga School and Joy Yoga. When Marissa is not on the mat she is an art student, studying sketching, painting and sculpture. " In my classes I work at creating sequencing that encourages the spirit of challenge, playfulness and restoration. I never thought that yoga would become so important to me and I am happy to have found it as soon as I have. It is a practice you can take wherever you go. Yoga has given me the tools to slow down, focus on building relationships, give gratitude and to gain the ability to work through anxieties. I hope to be a conduit for the practice so that students have the opportunity to experience self-exploration and growth."
Marissa Dickey instructs the following:
A dynamic flow class using surya namaskar (sun salutations) as a thread woven throughout the practice. Standing poses, forward bends, back bends, twists, balance poses and inversions are sequenced with the vinyasa. This dynamically-paced series builds internal heat, strength, stamina, focus and flexibility.* Mixed-level class for those with some yoga experience.
