Founder of SSY / Director of RYS 200 Program
At the age of 10, Marisol left her parents’ home in order to live with her first spiritual guide. She remained under that guidance who helped her to remember her divine connection until age 17. During that time, she learned about Bhakti Yoga, the loving and devotional relationship with the Supreme. Her first Vipassana retreat took place in 2000, unveiling a new sensitivity and embodied understanding of the mind-matter relationship.
This was also when she began her physical yoga practice. She followed various courses in order to deepen her practice and better serve her students. She completed her RYT-200 in 2009. In 2010, she studied in India with a dear friend, Yogacharya Tonmoy Shome, and learned to integrate healing mantras into her teaching and practice. In 2014, during her stay in India and Nepal, she followed the path of Ashtanga Yoga in Mysore, Southern India, studying for a RYT-300. In 2015, she studied Vinyasa flow style at the School Yoga Institute in Guatemala earning another RYT-300. She is currently studying the alignments of Iyengar Yoga to deepen her practice further. She also has studied Munayki healing energy, crystal therapy and Reiki, which she practices whenever someone needs help.
Her enthusiasm leads her to believe that everyone can be mentally and physically healthy. Marisol sees yoga and connection to Mother Nature as therapy for the soul and body.
