About Rosemary

Rosemary, E-RYT 500, teaches her yoga students with a gentle, yet strong touch. 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 believes the practice can uproot, heal and liberate – and that it can be done with minimal discomfort and a tremendous amount of grace. Rosemary has taught private yoga in San Francisco for over a decade, and has led numerous retreats around the world.

In 2017, Rosemary will offer a Women of Influence Retreat on Maui, Hawaii at Lumeria Retreat from February 20th-26th. This is one of four retreats in 2017. Rosemary will also be returning to Haramara, Mexico at the end of March followed by Tassajara Zen Center in Big Sur, CA in June and Mayacamas Ranch in Calistoga, California in September. 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 Marriot 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, International Orange, Yoga Works SF, 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!).”

Corporate & Private Yoga Instruction

In addition to teaching her studio yoga classes, Rosemary travels throughout California to teach private yoga in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Ojai. Rosemary’s private yoga can be used to deepen an existing yoga practice or for re-introduction to the practice after a long time away; students also start private sessions for injury rehabilitation, for the privacy that individual practice can afford, and for increased scheduling flexibility. Rosemary works privately in yoga studios and in your own home, and she can work with you to determine how private sessions may be helpful to you and your practice. Couples and families are encouraged to participate and session prices are inclusive for multiple family members. Contact Rosemary to discuss scheduling private yoga classes at your location. Corporate Yoga Classes Business and corporate clients interested in bringing a wellness practice to the workplace, or to a conference location, can also contact Rosemary to discuss onsite corporate yoga in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Corporate yoga is a great way to support employee health and wellbeing, as well as to provide a community experience based on breath and movement – an environment which can serve to strengthen the relationships between co-workers beyond the meetings, numbers, and deadlines. Yoga mats can be provided for corporate and private yoga sessions upon request.
