Yoga Instructor/ Vedanta Philosophy
Rosa’s classes blend the alignment cues of her training in Iyengar yoga with music, movement, and intelligent sequencing of a faster paced flow class. Her calm and encouraging energy provides all levels of practitioners the opportunity to find balance while exploring what alignment feels like for their own unique body.
Rosa discovered yoga in 2011 as a way of balancing her passion for long-distance running, but soon found that the possibilities and applications of yoga extend far beyond merely a cross-training exercise. She discovered that any yoga posture can be approached as an opportunity to see how the mind responds to challenges. Can the mind simply observe what is in this moment, or does it immediately judge the experiences that arise, seeking to change or avoid them?
She has studied with the renowned Iyengar teacher Ramanand Patel, Hatha flow instructor David Moreno, and guided meditation, Sanskrit, and philosophy under Dr. Carol Whitfield and Sri Swami Dayananda Saraswati.
