Joseph Rooney

Yoga Instructor - Hi my name is Joseph Rooney,  I'm happily married with two daughter. I started my yoga journey 7 years ago. When I first start yoga it was the physical asana that drew me to yoga. As my practice grew so did I. I sound out there is so much more to yoga then the physical practice. The other limbs of yoga taught me how to be ok with myself, how to meditate and control my thoughts, all the while grounding with mother earth and letting my sport be one with the universe. Yoga has helped transform and save my life. Looking forward to seeing you on your mat.
