About the presenter: Rosemary is a wife, mother of 3 children and the Managing Director at the Center for Mind-body Medicine. She was a college athlete, and has completed 3 triathlons but it was not until she discovered yoga in 2007 that she really understood the power of the mind-body connection. Rosemary developed a passion for yoga when she experienced first hand how practical and helpful it was - and how empowered she felt - during her pregnancies, births, and now while raising her three small children.
At the same time, Rosemary’s work with the Center for Mind-Body Medicine exposed her to new mind-body tools and techniques and a deeper understanding and appreciation for self-care, self awareness and group support. This was especially important during her own experience of becoming a mother, finding a community of women to draw on for education and support.
As a wife, mother, and full-time working professional, Rosemary believes in the practice of self-care and strives to bring the principles of yoga and self-awareness to all aspects of her life and share it with others.
Rosemary received her 500 hour yoga certification through Yogaworks and has taught intermittently. She holds a Master’s degree in Business Administration from University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and a Master’s degree in International Education Policy from Harvard.
