Rose first encountered yoga in 2006, practicing intermittently, but with increasing interest, until 2009 when she began intensive study with her first teacher, Rutu Chaudhari-a devoted student of Aadil Palkhivala. With the primary intent of cultivating the habit of practicing yoga more regularly coupled with Rutu’s expert guidance and passion for a holistic practice, she completed her 200 hr certification in an alignment based asana practice in the Purna yoga tradition.
As yoga grew more integral to her life, she was astounded by the myriad benefits reaped from a regular committed practice. Body and mind grew more sound and Rose experienced greater ease and grace navigating life’s occasionally perilous terrain. Through yoga she was offered the opportunity to experience and cultivate more joy and more freedom. These revelations continue to inspire her desire to share this practice with others.
Rose holds a B.A. in Classics from St. John’s College in Santa Fe, NM and an M.A. in Humanistic Psychology, as well as two years of post baccalaureate pre-medical science classes. She enjoys synthesizing into her teaching her many years of academic study combined with her current interests in eastern philosophy, contemplative neuroscience, yoga and meditation.
Rose teaches both gentle and physically challenging classes with an emphasis on alignment and the awareness of the breath body. She encourages the refinement of sensitivity and the cultivation of energetic awareness in the body. Rose possesses a deep love and special aptitude for working with students who wish to improve their emotional/psychological experience through the practice of yoga. Rose continues to deepen her practice through ongoing study and practice.
