About Rosemary

Rosemary, E-RYT 500, teaches a strong and deeply compassionate Vinyasa Flow class. She seeks to create the fires of transformation with a physically intense and vigorous flow while simultaneously supporting her students with a warm voice and nourishing energy. She emphasizes the breath, intention, mindful alignment… and ultimately, the cultivation of energy and awareness. It is her experience and belief that a consistent practice offers the practitioner a pathway to his or her own divine, radiant nature. Rosemary has taught private yoga in San Francisco and Ojai for nearly two decades, and has led numerous retreats around the world.

In 2019, Rosemary will be returning to Mexico at the end of March for her 10th anniversary Haramara Retreat. In June, she will journey to Tassajara Zen Center in Carmel Valley, CA followed by her Bell Valley Retreat in Boonville, California in October. 2019 also brings the second annual 200 Hour Teacher Training at The Pad Studios (Yoga Alliance Certified).

Featured by CBS LA for her annual Calistoga women’s retreat in “Best of LA – Ladies Only Sports,” her retreats draw dedicated students from all over the world. Her popular DeLoach Vineyard Wine & Yoga retreats have been featured in the New York Times Travel Section and Food & Wine Magazine. She has been invited by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) to teach a yoga wellness session to attendees at the AAMC’s Annual Meeting at the Marriott Marquis in San Francisco, and was also asked by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s AF4Q (Aligning Forces for Quality) to host a morning yoga session for the attendees of their National Meeting in San Francisco. Rosemary currently teaches private yoga classes in-home and at various yoga studios in San Francisco and Los Angeles including  The Pad Studios and the Ojai Yoga Shala , and leads a number of popular yoga retreats in California and Mexico each year.

 

Yoga Background

Rosemary’s journey towards becoming a devoted yogi and eventually, a yoga instructor began with the Ashtanga first series taught by famed Ashtanga yoga teacher Tim Miller. Hooked on yoga immediately, she devoted herself to the mysore practice and studied with Tim extensively. Years later, further exploration guided her to Vinyasa Flow yoga classes where she found the dance of Vinyasa liberating, beautiful, creative, and alive. She then began practicing with an amazing array of teachers within the yoga flow lineage including Max Strom, Dharma Mittra, and Shiva Rea, learning increased depth and subtlety within the practice – and within the practice of teaching. After teacher trainings with David Swenson, a Yoga Alliance Certification, and a myriad of other trainings, she began her teaching career in 2004. Her most recent Ashtanga Primary Series teacher training has been under the instruction of Tim Miller, in January 2012.  In addition to being a dedicated yogi, Rosemary is also a dedicated runner – a pairing she refers to as an addiction to “the highs and the glows (Pinterest inspiration!).”
