Malisa Bobbitt, RYT 500-E
Malisa, Co-Owner of Northern Arizona Yoga Center and Founder/Director of Vertical Soul's Yoga Teacher Training, has consistently been contributing not only to her own growth as a yoga teacher, but passionately supports the growth of the amazing community of yoga teachers in Flagstaff.
Master of Education since 1999, Malisa has taught many disciplines to many ages. Her passion to help her students discover the beauty that lives within themselves, their Souls, is the driving force in all her classes.
In 2006, upon completion of her 200 hour yoga teacher training, she started teaching yoga in Flagstaff. Since then, she has taught 1000s of hours of yoga in local schools, at Northern Arizona University, and of course, at NAYC. Her desire to learn more has driven her to study with many of the Master Teachers like Rod Stryker, Leslie Kaminoff, and Gary Kraftsow. Most importantly, she continues to return to study her yoga lineage, through Tom Kelly in Encinitas, CA. She has been a dedicated student of his since 2004.
In February of 2011, she completed a Yoga Allliance, 500 Yoga Teacher Training that focused on deeper understanding of the most popular types of yoga in the United States.
Malisa's dharma, her Soul's Destiny, is to co-create a loving space. All are welcome in her classes and all are welcome at Northern Arizona Yoga Center!
