Marisa Echeverri

Owner and Instructor (RYT 200)  |  Durham

Marisa is a recovering NYC advertising executive who spent over a decade behind a desk promising herself she’d go to the gym after work. 

In the fourth grade after an unsuccessful season as a cheerleader, Marisa enrolled in gymnastics and was hooked  She competed regionally and nationally until she injured every part of her body but the need to move never left.  After graduating from Boston University with a Master of Science in Communication, she headed to New York City for a bagel and a year’s worth of experience in Advertising and stayed for 12. Years. 

Marisa completed her RYT-200 in 2012 by Ossi Raveh in Brooklyn, NY.  She holds a Bachelor of Arts from Syracuse University in English and Textual Studies and a Master of Science from Boston University in Mass Communication but the education she values most is the lessons her children teach her every day (and night. All night.)

She is afraid of camel pose.
