She Moves Mountains

Rosie is a Seattle-based yoga teacher who expresses her vibrant creativity through movement, writing, and the performing arts.

In 2012, Rosie stepped onto the mat for the first time and was immediately drawn to the practice. Yoga became a form of expression. She quickly became devoted and challenged herself to strengthen her practice over time.

Since then, she’s traveled to Costa Rica and Nicaragua to train for her 200 and 500-hour RYT. Rosie has always been drawn to the natural world and it was during her training that she realized she could intertwine the thrill of adventure with her underlying passion for art. Rosie is inspired to travel, teach, and create all over the world.

One of her most influential adventures was a work-trade opportunity to teach yoga in the Dominican Republic, which shares the same island as her birth country. After the work-trade, she traveled to Haiti to reconnect with her family and her birthplace, which she hadn’t seen since her adoption. The experience was beyond words for her, it took a lot of practice and soul-searching to process the magnitude of it after being away for so long.

She’s getting ready to release her self-published book, “Sustenance,” a book of poems of her raw exploration of self-identity.

Rosie has dedicated herself to contributing to the yoga and art community here in Seattle while simultaneously spreading awareness and donating back to her birth country, Haiti. Rosie is planning to host a yoga, adventure, service retreat in Haiti to once again help her community flourish.
