What Others Say About Ted

"Mysore-trained Roseen handles the yoga instruction in a refreshingly easygoing yet still vigorous Ashtanga style, infused with laughter from a few well-timed one-liners. His teaching has a solid deconstructionist theme without all the over-formal nonsense you find in some studios."


--Twin Cities Statement Magazine, March 2010.

Good morning Ted!

I just thought I would drop you a quick note and say THANK YOU!  I sure missed your classes while I was gone.  I am sitting at home working in yoga pants and the fabulous Yoga Ted Yoga super soft T shirt and thinking about how my abs and arms and other muscles I often forget about are feeling it a little from yesterday's practice.  The I best part?  I am really happy that I can feel them!  I hope that you do get to hear it enough, but you are a fantastic teacher and I am so glad that I took a chance and went to your class that first time.  
I probably haven't mentioned this before, but I was a little intimidated by your teaching profile (because I think all runners, but especially the long distance ones, are a bit fanatical and crazy) and I was afraid of what that would mean for a yoga class.  BUT, I had just walk/jogged a 5K and wanted to go a yoga class on a Sunday morning and decided I would give your class a shot - after all, I didn't have to go back if I didn't want to.  Needless to say, I have now taken more yoga classes with you than with anyone else.  I guess a little bit fanatical and crazy is a perfect fit for yoga :) 
I appreciate the opportunities you provide!
Have a great day -


"You probably do not remember me but I was a regular in your Saturday morning Slow Flow yoga classes at the Saint Louis Park Studio.  I unfortunatlely had to stop attending when I took a job on the east coast in October 2009.  I just wanted to let you know that I found your classes to be astonishing.  At first I did not understand your methodology, but I quickly felt the benefits as you broke down poses into smaller parts and guided the class in lesser known posses (at least to me) that aided the overarching pose.  I hope that made some sense.  Even though I grumbled at having to wake up on a Saturday morning, I always came out of your class rejuvenated, calm, and felt like layer of yuckiness was washed off of me.  So, in short, thank you for doing what you do.  For what it is worth, your work greatly benefited this chicka."

"Whereas many yoga instructors (myself included) teach like they play a yoga instructor on TV, Ted teaches like he invented it.  You'll learn, you'll laugh, and you might even cry - but that would just be from laughing so hard."
