Marissa has been studying the art of movement through dance, martial arts, fitness, and yoga, since she was a child. After more than 20 years experience teaching these modalities in and around Boston, specifically teaching Yoga at Laughing Dog for 20 years, she has synthesized her work into what she calls, The InHara System.
Beginning in 2004, Marissa began attending childbirth as a certified professional doula to help in any and all ways through support, advocacy, and education.
In 2013 she created The InHara Practice. Workshops followed soon after; providing a system of movement for women to reconnect with the most primal portion of their body, the pelvis. Around town, Marissa is known as “the Vagina Lady”, a title that fits the InHara System well.
Marissa returned to school in 2014 to study massage therapy at The Bancroft School of Massage Therapy and then, following a 10 year dream, went on to study The Arvigo Technique of Mayan Abdominal Therapy under the watchful eye of the program creator, Rosita Arvigo.
Marissa is a wife, mother of 2, a step-mom, and is found happiest hiking, cooking, and chasing her dog in the woods.
