She has since continued her education, participating in a 25-hour yin intensive teacher training in August 2014, as well as Kindness Yoga’s 300 hour advanced yoga teacher training course which she completed in December 2014. Because of her classical training in India, her teaching style is alignment focused with an emphasis on flowing with breath, integrating pranayama and meditation, and turning the focus inward for deeper contemplation.

That’s where the spark began and in 2014 the flame and fire took off and never looked back. She graciously elected to devote her time and tremendous energy to teaching yoga. She left her corporate job that she held for over 14 years and became part of the YogaOne family by accepting the Director of Operations and all things Cool position for the YogaOne Studio located in Bellaire, Texas. With the glorious and gracious support of her true mentors and inspirations, Albina Rippy and Catherine Allen, she gladly continues her yoga journey by adding Forrest yoga to her portfolio.  Check out Rochelle’s magic at www.yogaOneHouston.com
