A modern-day renaissance woman, Marisol Tamez is passionate about integrating her diverse interests with her singular purpose: to provide healing and inspiration for all ages, races and abilities. As a yoga instructor, writer, producer, jewelry designer and more, she views the "comfort zone" as dangerous territory and aims to continually reinvent herself.
Marisol's love affair with yoga began in 2010 after her years as a dancer resulted in two knee ACL replacements. Already certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine as a Personal Trainer while in college, in 2011 she completed her 200-Hour Teacher Training with Terri Cooper at 305 Yoga, a karma yoga school in Miami, Florida. Soon after, Marisol learned that her natural childlike spirit would be key in allowing her to connect with youth, including those with disabilities. Thus, she completed both the Radiant Child Yoga training and Louise Goldberg's Creative Relaxation®: Yoga Therapy for Children with Autism & Special Needs (Levels 1&2).
Her yoga class repertoire ranges from a medium paced, yet challenging alignment based vinyasa flow to a gentle restorative or yin practice. She constantly emphasizes the breath, which she views as the gateway to a truly transformative experience. Her deep love for the chakras, ensures that students make the connection between their physical & energetic bodies and their life experiences off of the mat.
In 2015, Marisol journeyed across the US to relocate on the West Coast in Los Angeles and Long Beach, CA. Here she taught at Exhale Spa, transferring from their studio locations in Downtown Miami and South Beach. In 2017, Marisol’s deep love for karma yoga fueled her decision to return to Connection Coalition (CoCo) as the organization’s Training Coordinator, with the intention of scheduling their 20-Hour Trauma-Informed training in yoga studios across the US, which she will also lead along with a core team of CoCo trainers.
