MARISSA WILEY

Hometown? Topeka, Kansas (Top-City!!)

Favorite music artist or band? Draaaaaaake forever and always.

Dream vacation? Traveling the world and exploring somewhere new!

Favorite post yoga snack? Smoothies! Or bagels. Or anything really haha.

A quote you love? “You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.” -Rumi <3 <3

Personal mantra? I am fulfilled. I am fearless. I am enough.

How did you get into yoga? I was first introduced to yoga by my father when I was in high school. I was re-introduced to yoga during my time at NYU. It was actually a required course for my BFA in dance. Yoga gave me a sense of being grounded during a groundless transition from my life in Kansas to the grind of New York City. The universe works in brilliant ways.

Favorite time of day to get your practice in? First thing in the morning or at the end of the day. Nothing beats book ending days in NYC with some restoration and self care.

What's your favorite part of Y7? The community, bumping beats, darkness and HEAT.
