Born and raised in East Los Angeles by Mexican parents, Rosa’s first language is Spanish and her first love is her culture. Her second love, however, is now yoga, a practice that’s permeated not only her body and her breath, but her day-to-day life. Yoga has transformed the former career-driven triathlete into a yogi whose mantra is “Love in, love out.” She is excited to bring this transformative practice to Sacramento’s Spanish speaking community.
Rosa’s day job takes her to correctional facilities, where she walks and talks to people whose actions have cost them their freedom. Inspired by those who find forgiveness for their mistakes and spiritual and emotional freedom despite prison walls, Rosa teaches yoga to help students find their own freedom through movement, meditation, prayer, and a vigorous physical practice.
Rosa also volunteers and helps coordinate yoga classes for young men and women housed in Sacramento’s juvenile hall.
Rosa has completed a 200 hour Power Vinyasa Training at Zuda Yoga. She has also attended numerous workshops with Bryan Kest and Janet Stone, and she travels regularly to studios outside of Sacramento to bring fresh ideas back to her classes
