Roseanne’s most empowering aspect is her education in Ayurvedic Healing. Kitchen Pharmacy, Dosha Constitution, Vedic Astrology Charts, Vibrational Healing Treatment, Spiritual Life Coaching, learned under the supervision and guidance of Dr. Vasant Lad of the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Roseanne is a lifelong teacher and believer in a higher purpose. Staying true to that belief she has become a Yoga, Aerial Arts & Pilates Teacher, and Ayurvedic Practitioner.
Beginning her career at age 14 teaching tap, ballet and jazz classes, and going on to choreograph and direct children’s theater, Roseanne then attended the American Musical and Dramatic Academy Conservatory for the Performing Arts in NYC, where she received her associates degree in musical theater, dance and voice. As part of her own theater training; Yoga and Pilates were a big part in keeping her body healthy, because “the show must go on”.
Of course, teaching yoga and Pilates as a career, was a very natural progression, receiving her Power Pilates 600 hour certification in 2012. Several years ago, she discovered the Aerial Arts, which combined all of her and passions into one; yoga, Pilates and performance. In 2015 she received her 200 RYT and 25 hour Aerial Yoga certification.
Aerial Fitness has become a staple in Roseanne’s life. Through the practice and teaching of The Aerial Arts she has learned so much more about the human body and what it can do; the strength that is inside everyone and how to tap into that strength.
Since bringing The Aerial Arts into her life, it seems her passion and purpose in life have merged.
Joan Ruby is a RYT 200 hour Yoga Alliance certified instructor. Following years of a rewarding practice as a labor and employment law attorney, she gravitated to the practice of yoga to find a very different source of satisfaction and focus. While first drawn to the physical aspects of yoga, she became equally intrigued by yoga philosophy and the mental components of the practice, which she was fortunate to explore in vinyasa training with Liz Shulman, Sat Shakti. She continues her yoga journey with inspiration and joy, exploring the opportunities for growth and clarity. Joan sees yoga as an invitation to expand boundaries, internal and external, subtle and grand, and to find space in the body and the mind. Joan is grateful for every chance she has to continue her yoga journey and to share and learn from others in her classes and off the mat.

I started yoga for the physical aspect of it. I wanted to be strong physically to face the world. While strengthening my body, I found yoga healed my mind and eased my PTSD. It soothed me and helped me enjoy life. I am grateful to the practice of yoga for helping me enormously.
After 10 years, yoga has strengthened my body and centered and balanced my life and mind.
I love to help people learn what I have learned and find the magic of yoga for the mind and body. I teach people to soothe themselves, heal, and achieve physical release in a moving meditation.
