"Marisa Weppner is the rare yoga instructor who masterfully weaves the introspective and spiritual with the practical and playful. For seasoned yogis and beginners alike, her fluid, intuitive guidance resonates on and off the mat."                           -- Chad D., Marketing and Promotions Director, The Record Exchange

"Marisa's yoga studio, Sage Yoga & Wellness, is a welcoming, friendly community of yogis--an  inclusive place to practice for people of all levels. You are just as likely to find someone like me, wearing my old Target yoga clothes tipping over in balancing poses, as you are Lululemon goddesses, sharing the space. At Sage I am encouraged, challenged and supported. It's a delight to walk through the door."  -- Neva G., Director of Community Engagement, Create Common Good
