About Rose Ghavami:
After completing her teacher training in 2008, Rose became Yoga Alliance Certified at the 500hr level and is now teaching in a unique style which she calls Sacred Rose Yoga. Rose, utilizes a multi-faceted approach to entice not only the body, but also the mind, heart, senses and soul. Through the union of all these elements she creates a sacred space to delve deep within and awaken the divinity that lay dormant in so many of us. Inspired largely by Jeanne Heileman and Rod Stryker her classes are strong yet incorporate the expansive qualities of Pranayama or breath work, the quieting subtleties of Meditation, the emphasis of alignment ala Iyengar, the movement and momentum of Vinyasa Flow, a knowledge of Ayurveda, and the subtle body elements of Tantra. While still continuing to study yoga, Rose was able to discover a way to merge yoga with helping those who undergo surgery. This is refered to as “Post Op Yoga”.
What is Post Op Yoga?
Post Op Yoga is the first of it’s kind and not to be confused with Restorative Yoga. Post Op Yoga is specifically designed for anyone who has undergone surgery and is looking for alternative ways to quickly heal the body. Through a gentle and restorative yoga practice, breathing techniques, meditation and herbal supplementation, one can accelerate the healing process. Consistency, perseverance and patience is key!
How can Post Op Yoga help?
When the body experiences trauma in the form of surgery, it can take several months to heal and feel like yourself again. Through a guided private practice with Rose, you can begin practicing yoga in as early as 6 weeks post surgically. Yoga in general serves as a forum to invite Prana or life force (also known in chinese medicine as Chi or Qi) into the body. When there is injury, whether it be emotional or physical, Prana is lost. Yoga invites Prana back into the body to not only help enlighten but also heal. Yoga also helps to create a body-mind connection. With this awareness one is able to surrender to the healing process, detach from pain and in turn speed up the course of recovery.
