Meet the Teachers

Marissa montefreddi

Once working in a 9-5 career, Marissa chose to leave it behind to focus on her own personal yoga practice, without the intention of becoming a yoga teacher. Immediately after receiving her 200 RYT she began teaching, wanting to bring the peace and clarity she felt from her yoga practice to others. A few years later she went on to receive her 500 RYT through Sri Dharma Mittra, her practice and teachings then began to evolve into a deeper more spiritual practice. She is forever grateful to share Sri Dharma Mittra's physical and spiritual teachings with others. "Everything is perfect, that is the beauty of yoga; to bring out consciousness to this level." Sri Dharma Mittra

Brie Jacobs

After 10 years in the hair and beauty industry as a colorist , Brie found herself in an increasing toxic world of chemicals, stressed out, creatively feeling stuck and feeling like her professional and personal life were not coexisting in her favor. This was having an affect on her mentally and physically. Needless to say, she was looking for relief. In 2010, this spark of awareness lead her by chance to a local yoga studio. Unbeknownst to her, the teachers she would find in that cozy little room would change the course of her path forever. Fast forward 5 years, Brie is a Jivamukti Yoga teacher living in Thailand for 2 months studying under Homprang Chaleekanha ,a Traditional Thai Medicine doctor and  a Thai Yoga Bodywork master. The life experience and knowledge she obtained in Thailand is indescribable and life changing. Brie is eternally grateful for Homprang and the many teachers that she has stumbled upon so far in her life.

In 2013, Brie spent a month at the Omega Institute in upstate N.Y. and completed the 300 hour Jivamukti Yoga teacher training. She studied under Sharon Gannon and David Life, who are the founders of Jivamukti Yoga, and Lady Ruth, who was a student of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois for over 20 years. Brie teaches and practices yoga weekly in Ocean and Monmouth County, N.J.,USA. Forever a student , Brie hopes to be lucky enough to continue to travel and learn from the teachers, people and animals she meets from all over the world. The knowledge, experience and connections she makes on these travels are held near and dear to her heart.
