HI, I’M KARISSA!
My current, ever evolving, mission is to help as many humans feel as amazing about themselves as possible. Body – Mind – Heart – Soul – Skin – Breath. Those are a few very important elements in the human experience. When one is off, often it throws the others off too. We are so intimately connected.
In seeking to discover a deeper knowledge of myself, I also began to pursue avenues that enable me to help others in similar way.
In 2012 I became a licensed esthetician. I began working as an esthetician by day and serving tables by night. I spent what little free time I had at the gym and explored different styles of yoga offered in my area.
In 2014 I hit a fork in my life; I could either stay where I was and keep doing what I was doing, or I could let go of it all to explore the world. Several factors lined up in such a way that it became very clear to me that it was time to put myself in uncharted territories. I explored for 7 months and when all was said and done I was still wanting more. I decided the next trip I would prioritize deepening my yoga practice with a teacher training.
A month before I left the country with a one way ticket to Thailand I had a buzz of inspiration circulate through me. What if I combined Yoga & Esthetics and shared it with the world, effectively creating the ultimate body care experience?! Think of it, personalized guided yoga, coupled with a high caliber customized facial for savasana. Bliss.
In 2015, immediately after acquiring my 200 hour RYT Ashtanga Yoga Certificate I took a wander through Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, and Indonesia. During these wanders many opportunities arose to teach 1:1 sessions, and assist classes.
These days I am located in the Sacramento and Folsom area. In addition to making my mobile yoga and facial dream a reality, I teach weekly yoga classes at multiple locations, guide community meditations, and give advanced skincare services from a lovely studio space.
I look forward to hearing from and meeting you!
