East Meets West Yoga Center

Marissa Chapman

At the age of 18, Marissa took her first yoga class via VHS tape! Throughout the years, she practiced many forms of yoga until 2007 when she discovered Kundalini Yoga and was hooked. She loved the way it made her feel physically, emotionally, and spiritually. She completed her 200 hour teacher training in 2012 and has taught at various studios in the DC area since.

As Marissa’s interest in the healing arts grew, she studied with Gurunater Kaur Khalsa to became a Reiki master. Then in 2018, she left her career as a Graphic Designer to study Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at MUIH.

Other trainings include KRI Level 3 Module: 21 Stages of Meditation, and Kundalini Yoga Therapy Module 6 in Stockholm with Guru Dharam Singh.

Marissa brings her passion for heart-centered movement, meditation, music, and healing to every class she leads.
