Hi, I’m Rosie Volcano. I’m a nationally certified bodyworker and passionate Forrest Yoga teacher, as well as an ordained shamanic priestess. I also love my dogs, fantasy novels, and David Bowie. For the last 9 years I have worked closely with Chiropractors, Acupuncturists, and Physical Therapists helping people recover from acute and chronic pain.
Through the years my patients always said that I had a gift. I felt that I had a “second set of eyes in my hands” and could see down to the deepest level of the body. Through a combination of Myofascial Release, Trigger Point therapy, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation, and other massage techniques, I have always been able to find a protocol that helps my patient free themselves of pain. Unintentionally, I started releasing energetic injuries as well as physical ones, and began to get curious about energy work. Around that time, my partner K introduced me to Forrest Yoga and I never looked back.
After completing our Forrest Yoga training together in 2013, K and I formed the Little Volcano Yoga- an online store and later a Yoga Studio in Asheville NC. My voice as a yoga teacher has grown in ways I could never have imagined in the last 3 years. I love leading my students through powerful and intelligent sequences designed to empower them and help them stalk their fears. I bring a combination of magic, herbal medicine, fantasy jokes, and anatomical education to my classes and encourage my students to express themselves authentically. By sharing my own vulnerability, and encouraging my students to share theirs, I’ve seen them break down barriers and reach all new levels of healing.
