“I am old- I turn 55 in April. I started practicing Yoga when I was 14. The nuns asked my parents to have me see a doctor about putting me on meds for my hyperactivity. I was in a very small private Catholic school in Coconut Grove, Florida. The doc and my parents were against medication so the school brought in a Yoga teacher- Eve Diskin, then the President of the American Society of Yoga. I spent my afternoons teaching and taking Yoga on a little white towel in my school uniform (no yoga clothes or mats back then) overlooking Biscayne Bay. I never realized how fortunate I was until many years later. So, while I did teach back then (had no idea what I was doing), I did not take a teacher training class until I came to Asheville Yoga Center in 2005.” – Rosie Mulford
