Roz Newmark was first introduced to Transcendental Meditation (TM), and Swami Vishnudevananda's yoga in 1972. She has studied with many Senior Iyengar, Anusara and Para instructors, completing several teachers' trainings sessions. Donna Farhi's work has been a strong influence with its clarity in how to integrate the richly informed studies of Body Mind Centering (BMC) with yoga. In her own teaching, Roz enjoys blending the concise structure of the Iyengar tradition with BMC and her own kinetic insights developed as a professional dancer. She has served a wide range of populations, from children to seniors, athletes to injured, and corporate to casual. It is her belief that, through merging breath with asana while listening to the body's deeper wisdom, one can prevent injuries and find greater ease in movement and stasis.
