Marisa Benson has a bachelor’s degree from Keene State College in Exercise Science. She received her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training in Thailand from Wise Living Yoga Academy and is Reiki Level I certified. Marisa has been an athlete most of her life. At the age of nine she began competing in gymnastics and continued for six years. In high school she was a three-sport varsity athlete. She felt particularly passionate about field hockey and pursued this sport in college. After playing field hockey at Keene State for two years she felt a deeper calling and turned to yoga. Since then she has been practicing yoga for seven years and teaching for three. Marisa is inspired to bring yoga into the work she does with youth. She knows that yoga’s deep spiritual teachings can give children the tools they need to thrive in life. In her classes she focuses on breath, play, and self-care. When she is not teaching yoga, she is working as a Youth Programs Advisor. She also loves to paint, draw, read, sing, dance, meditate, and cook in her free time!
