Ted Roseen /
Ted Roseen has been teaching his unique blend of yoga around the Twin Cities for over 15 years.
This mix of the biomechanics of Iyengar, strong poses and repetition of Ashtanga, and the gentle flow of Vinyasa creates a fun, yet challenging balance for students of any level. As a marathoner, triathlete, and rock climber, Roseen understands the importance of an open body, the benefits of a positive and quiet mind and the powerful resource that is tapped when that open body and quiet mind are connected.
What really sets his class apart from most other yoga classes is the pure, unadulterated fun. In a world of furrowed brows and rounded shoulders, Ted helps to set you free from work, home, traffic, meetings, bills, kids, relationship dramas, and the like, and lets you remember what it’s like to play and to explore with a childlike curiosity, and a non-competitive lightness, not to escape yourself, but to return to yourself.
Roseen has studied under a number of gurus, including Saraswathi Rangaswamy, daughter of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India and local yogi Dec Barry. He was acknowledged for his efforts and abilities in yoga in the Mpls/St.Paul Magazine “Best of the Twin Cities 2007.” Roseen has worked with the performance group Stomp, the band My Morning Jacket, and was one of the Minnesota Master teachers who presented at the 2015 Minneapolis Yoga Conference.
Mysore-trained Roseen handles the yoga instruction in a refreshingly easygoing yet still vigorous Ashtanga style, infused with laughter from a few well-timed one-liners. His teaching has a solid deconstructionist theme without all the over-formal nonsense you find in some studios.
