As a marathoner, triathlete, and rock climber, Roseen understands the importance of an open body, the benefits of a positive and quiet mind and the powerful resource that is tapped when that open body and quiet mind are connected.

He has studied under a number of gurus, including Saraswathi Rangaswamy, daughter of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India and local yogi Dec Barry.
