About Me

Sedona AuraRose Kress, ERYT 500, Master LifeForce Yoga Practitioner, Mentor, Yoga Therapist, Reiki 2, and Wellness Coach has been practicing yoga since 1994 and teaching since 2004. She considers it her calling to bring healing to all through yoga, reiki, essential oils and nutrition.
Rose began her studies with Amy Weintraub, author of Yoga for Depression, in 2003 and after years of support and work she was able to overcome chronic pain and an anxiety disorder. As a result of her personal transformation, Rose works to bring the healing aspects of yoga to anyone seeking relief. She focuses on therapeutic Yoga, especially LifeForce Yoga for Mood Management and Yoga for Structural Wellness. Rose teaches workshops and retreats around the country and at yoga festivals. She maintains a steady class schedule in Tucson, AZ.
