Ross O’Brien

Despite being a lifelong athlete, Ross spent the first 20+ years of his life living somewhere near but rarely ever in his body. In fact, he had to be repeatedly dragged to his first yoga classes back in 2010. He knows very well what it’s like to feel uncomfortable in your own skin, awkward in your own body, and out of place in a yoga class. Through years of steady practice, he has experienced profound transformation and become deeply committed to this path. He is honored to be teaching among some of the best teachers he’s ever studied and practiced with. Ross is also student of psychology, philosophy, and meditation. His classes draw on inspiration from many modalities but are always centered around vulnerability, devotion, and self-study. When not on his mat, Ross either has his hands in the earth or is losing (and sometimes finding) himself in a book or out on a Nevada County trail.
