Made in Brazil with Mexican ingredients, Rosa Santana, Iyengar Yoga Certified, has been studying, teaching, and propagating the therapeutic art of Iyengar Yoga since 1995. She was drawn to the mental and physical discipline after suffering three accidental falls, one of which fractured her tailbone. Since healing her back, neck and sciatica pains, she has introduced yoga to thousands of students who had never experienced this healing art and science.
In 2002, she founded Yogarosa, which has become a respected yoga studio in the classical teachings of Iyengar Yoga. She has hosted numerous internationally recognized teachers and continues to teach and mentor yoga students as well as yoga teachers.
She has had the privilege of studying directly with Yoga Master BKS Iyengar, as well as his daughter, Geeta, and son, Prashant in India. Rosa has presented the benefits of Iyengar Yoga as a Guest lecturer at Nova Southeastern University, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society of South Florida and Puerto Rico, and the National Parkinson’s Foundation. She leads Iyengar intensives in the US, and internationally.
She believes yoga is accessible, healing, and transformational to all who try it.
