Marizol's yoga path began over 10 years ago, and was solidified with her certification as a yoga teacher. As a dancer who studied many different styles of yoga including Bikram, Ashtanga, Power Yoga, Forrest Yoga, Marizol feels that it was Vinyasa Flow that ignited her passion for yoga. It was in this style where she discovered a love for uniting movement with the breath which will allow the mind to become still and the focus to be solely on the body and the breath.
Marizol is certified through the Yoga Institute and Joy Yoga Center and has taken advance teacher training classes with Jonny Kest, who is one of her favorite teachers and inspirations. She also obtained a Trance Dance certification with Shiva Rea. In addition to teacher certification courses, Marizol is continually educating herself with workshops and conferences, and has had the opportunity to practice with Anna Forrest, Seane Corn, Bryan Kest, Sharon Gannon and David Life, Dharma Mitra, Rusty Wells and David Swenson to name a few. She broadens her awareness of the body, its muscles and movements through anatomy and kinesiology classes. Her classes are musically charged, fun, challenging, and consistently different. She creates a safe environment for everyone to practice, from the novice to the well-seasoned student. It is her goal to share her passion for yoga with the community and one day wants to travel and teach internationally.
Marizol has recently rediscovered a new passion and playtime activity, AcroYoga, a combination of acrobatics, yoga and Thai massage done with a partner and in a group setting. It is her goal to train hard and attend AcroYoga teacher training next year. One more thing she can share passionately with the community.
