Rosa Vissers' belief in the intelligence of our bodies guides her teaching. Her classes are an invitation to slow down so we can listen, feel, and connect with the wisdom that lives in our cells. With an emphasis on inclusive movement, Rosa's approach to yoga is inspired by her lifelong study and practice of contemporary dance and somatics. She aims to offer a deeply nourishing and supportive class, filled with warmth, curiosity, and creativity.
As a practice of individual and collective liberation, yoga helps Rosa show up with love and authenticity in her life and community. Since 2009, Rosa has been part of Yoga Behind Bars, serving as Executive Director from 2013-2019, and currently working as a facilitator of their Trauma-Informed Yoga training. Her most important teachers have been her students behind bars. She's a contributing editor and contributor to two Yoga Service Council books, Best Practices for Yoga in the Criminal Justice System (2017) and Best Practices for Yoga with Survivors of Sexual Trauma (2020).
She holds a BFA and MFA in Modern Dance and completed her 500-Hour YTT (Yoga Teacher Training) Certification at Centered City Yoga in Salt Lake City in 2007. Rosa is an herbalism student/practioner and loves tending her small garden of medicinal plants. Born and raised in The Netherlands, she now lives in Seattle, on Duwamish land with her partner and toddler.

Rosa is filled to the brim with somatic intelligence and deep compassion, both of which are shared generously with her students. ~Hannah R.
Rosa is a wonderful yoga teacher. She offers clear communication and adaptations which make yoga accessible to a wide variety of physical body conditions and experience levels. She weaves the philosophy of yoga into the work with the physical poses to build a more comprehensive and enriching experience for students at any level of familiarity with yoga. I highly recommend her classes!
