Rosslyn Kermerer is a graphic designer turned yoga entrepreneur who founded Wholehearter Yoga. She lives just outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where she operates a home studio, serving her community through yoga teaching, coaching, energy healing, and graphic design consulting.

In this Episode Shannon talks to Rosslyn about what led her to focus her attention toward teaching online yoga classes via Skype and offers us the benefit of her experience as to how she’s made this format work for her.

Intro Shannon introduces Rosslyn and reads a letter from Nina, a member of The Connected Yoga Teacher Facebook Group, who received mentorship from another member, today’s guest Rosslyn Kermerer.

 

"Private yoga instruction is truly a heart-to-heart teaching. It's meant to be intimate. Technology might feel incongruous to something so soulful, but with a little practice and intention, we can retain that sense on intimacy online." ~ Rosslyn Kemerer
