About Rachel Rozen

I found Yoga during a time in my life when I was battling extreme anxiety and panic attacks.  It gave me the tools I needed help calm my mind and ground my body.  I began to practice it regularly.  Yoga became my guide from this point forward, whether I was conscious of it or not, on and off the mat.  Years later, I realized that I wanted to expose others to the emotionally healing benefits of yoga, bringing people peace and strength both physically and mentally. 

After receiving my 200-hour Yoga certification through Open Door Yoga Vancouver, I took a leap of faith and left my long-time job as a sales/customer service consultant in the Fashion Wholesale Industry to become a full-time yoga instructor.  After a few years of teaching, I took another big step and opened my own studio right in the heart of the place where I was raised and have such a strong connection: the gorgeous North Shore! 

The Yoga Root was conceived from wanting to take my experience and passion to the next level, and offer a space to those seeking an intimate and connected yoga practice, while bringing students a sense of community that may be missing from their lives. My focus was to promote confidence in my students by creating a safe, non-competitive environment so each individual gets the most out of their practice. Finding what moves you to breathe can be the key to cultivating YOU.  

YOU fit yoga. Everyone fits yoga. Yoga is one-size-fits-all!
