Marisa was born in South Africa but she is a citizen of the world. When she talks, you immediately understand how his life is full of experiences that have no boundaries and speak a thousand languages. Marisa loves the ocean and the flow of energy that she reads in its waves, that’s why she chose to stay in an island where also the earth smells. Since 2003 Marisa lives in Zanzibar where she teaches Hatha yoga and practice diving. A combination that led her to found the “Divine Diving: Yoga & Dive Center” where the two disciplines not only merge, but improve each other: the practice of yoga, helping to regulate the breath, allows you to reach the correct meditative state to live and feel the contact with the depths of the ocean, recovering an ancestral feeling of connection with one’s most hidden self. Marisa was my guide and mentor during the first trip to Zanzibar, a place of contrasts and harmonies where the soul experiences a deep self-knowledge. Thanks to her and her experience in “Yoga Zanzibar”, getting in tune with these places and appreciating their facets was natural. Because Zanzibar is not only pristine beaches, colored coral reefs and endless spice plantations that inundate the air with perfume, it is also a nest of culture and history, a mosaic of traditions, a melting pot of humanity. Every hut, temple and courtyard gives voice to the pride of this jewel of the crown of East Africa, where sensations are amplified and the soul rebirth. Travel-vacation-experience: Zanzibar has given me all this together with a widespread feeling of tranquility and inner serenity. Marisa’s yoga sessions took me by the hand along this path, helping me not only to catch knots and tensions, but also teaching me to recognize the true “beauty” and to enjoy it. I rediscovered the value of silence, I found my center thanks to meditation, I cultivated relationships sharing flavors and music. Scanned by the rhythm of African drums, my days have left echoes that I commemorate when the noise of daily life becomes deafening and the inner voice struggles to be heard. My experience in this Earth remains indelible for the emotions that has unleashed, the awareness that gave me, the doors that helped me to open. Marisa was part of this stage of my evolution and yoga was the best companion to share the trip with. I will be back to Zanzibar soon. There is still a lot to discover.
