What students have said:
‘Thank you so much for hosting Marco. As you know, I have a history with him and find him to be one of the best yogis in NY, if not the country. To bring that type of talent into Aspen by leveraging the strengths of our town and of Shakti is a real gift to the community. I think your “master in residence” program is a fantastic idea and as word spreads, it will become one of the strongest programs in the community.
It was also great for me to get to know you and Shakti a little bit better. I hope to spend more time there. I know Marco loved it here, so I hope we can get him back. I told him he can stay in my guest apartment, which hopefully will make it easier!”
“Thank you SO much for bringing Marco Rojas to Aspen! His classes felt like the first time I had ever done yoga–what an incredible journey inward! I’ve been thinking about so many things he said (like “if you die before you die, then when you die you don’t die”) and am sure that the effect he had will keep finding its way to my awareness. What a gift it is to have such wise, sensitive, powerful teachers. You included! So much gratitude to you and Jamie!”
“Last weekend’s class with Marco was phenomenal. His natural mixture of expertise and approachability made for a trustworthy and eye-opening class. My shoulders and my Chaturanga Dandasana have never received such heartfelt and pain-free attention, and my hips have never accepted Ardha Chandrasana so uncomplainingly. I was definitely sore on Sunday morning but as my Sunday morning practice picked up speed, Marco’s tips and phrases echoed in my mind and everything dropped right into place. I am so grateful to have taken his class. Thank you for bringing him to Aspen and for providing the gorgeous space in which we all could gather and practice.”
Marco is a messenger of yoga. His teachings follow the Krishnamacharya tradition. He trained to be a teacher under the guidance of Chuck Miller and Maty Ezraty, creators of YogaWorks, in Los Angeles in 2003. For the last thirteen years, Marco has cultivated a vital and rewarding yoga experience throughout New York City in studios such as YogaWorks, ISHTA, Pure Yoga, and Equinox. He practices at the Iyengar Institute of New York.
The class is an inward journey using the science of Raja Yoga. Explore Sun Salutations with bandhas and ujjayi breath, fundamentals of the Ashtanga yoga system taught by the late Pattabhi Jois. Follow intelligent sequencing from the Ashtanga and Iyengar traditions. The poses are held to explore expansion and extension and to allow the student time to incorporate Iyengar principles of precision and alignment. The teaching adjusts to the individual, a belief practiced in Viniyoga. This transcendental method of involution to achieve evolution will bring us in contact with our layers of existence, koshas, to realize awareness and consciousness necessary to experience sukkha.
