Desiree Rumbaugh Yoga

We are very honored to be hosting Desiree Rumbaugh at Pulsation Yoga this weekend for the workshop series: Your Body Is Your Teacher.

She has been traveling the world teaching workshops for over 20 years and she is coming here to our studio this weekend.

We invited her because we have in person experience with her. We have used the physical teachings and the spiritual wisdom that she offers in both our own practices and in our teaching with fantastic results. Now we would like to tell you a little bit more about what to expect from the weekend.

Desiree Rumbaugh Lotus Pose YogaDesiree is 60 years old, a grandmother of two and has been a dedicated yoga practitioner for over 30 years. She has co-authored the book “Fearless After Fifty: How to Thrive with Grace, Grit and Yoga” to inspire people of all ages who are seeking motivation and ways to overcome pain and the fear that often accompanies it, so that they can keep going with their practice when the body seems to be breaking down a bit.

While the aging process bring us much wisdom, it also brings challenges of all shapes and sizes. Desiree walks her talk. She has lived through deep tragedy and learned how to regain her joy after the loss of her 20 year old son.  Having dealt with back, neck, shoulder and knee issues during her long yoga career, she regularly works with Physical Therapists and Functional Strength trainers.  This work keeps her body strong so that she can continue to travel and share all that she has learned with others who are interesting in thriving rather than just surviving.

Desiree’s travel schedule is full and booked two years in advance world-wide. Now she is coming here to Pulsation Yoga and we are thrilled. If you decide to join us for this wonderful opportunity that is coming to your very own backyard you will:
