Roxane came to the mat over fifteen years ago as a way to alleviate her chronic back and neck issues and soon became a yoga enthusiast. While yoga has allowed her to become fit, more energized and calmer, she also found that yoga provided her with a greater appreciation for what life has to offer as well as the tools to better deal with life’s challenges.
With over 12 years teaching experience and over 1000 hours of teacher training in various styles of yoga, Roxane draws upon her broad yoga education and knowledge to better help each of her students.
She is trained in hatha, vinyasa (flow), hot, restorative, advanced and yin yoga with certifications from several well known yoga institutions including Modo Yoga International, Bija Yoga and Hot Asanas. Roxane has also trained under renowned yogis Dr. Judith Hanson Lasater, Dr. Ray Long and Gil Hedley and has been co-chair YogaFest NC, the Triangle’s largest yoga event, since 2015.
Roxane has lived in 5 countries, holds a Master’s Degree in science, is fluent in French and is a mother of three. She loves gardening, walking her dog Yogi, and brings her mat with her whenever she travels.
