Rosemary Garrison’s journey towards becoming a devoted yogi, and eventually, a studio and private yoga instructor, began with the Ashtanga first series taught by famed Ashtanga yoga teacher Tim Miller. Hooked on yoga immediately, Rosemary 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 her own practice – and within the practice of teaching. After teacher trainings with David Swenson, Erich Schiffmann, a Yoga Alliance Certification, Spirit Rock Center, and a myriad of other trainings, she began teaching yoga in 2004.
Rosemary teaches her 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.
