Rodney Yee has been curious about the mind and body for as long as he can remember. He was a gymnast, a ballet dancer, and a philosophy and physical therapy major. Following the thread of curiosity about mind and body, he took his first yoga class in 1980 and knew from the start that it would be a lifelong passion. Now that his mind and body are going through midlife, he is much more curious about the spirit. His spirit is fed by his wife Colleen and his 4 children. Life is abundant and chaotic and keeps Rodney returning to asana, pranayama, and meditation. Teaching is still a main vehicle for Rodney to understand union. He has created dozens of DVDs through Gaiam, and has written two books, Yoga: The Poetry of the Body and Moving Toward Balance, both with Nina Zolotow. He teaches workshops and retreats worldwide and leads teacher training intensives nationally. Rodney has also studied Iyengar yoga.
