Rodney Yee

Yoga teacher

Rodney Yee is considered a pioneer of yoga in the United States and is one of the most recognized yoga instructors in the world. A practitioner for more than 30 years, Rodney initially became a yoga enthusiast as a student of Iyengar Yoga but now teaches a blend of Iyengar and his own invented style.

He began his teaching career at The Yoga Room in Berkeley, California, later cofounding the Piedmont Yoga Studio (with Richard Rosen and Claire Finn) in Oakland. Currently based in New York, he teaches regularly at Yoga Shanti, a Sag Harbor studio owned by his wife and well-known yoga teacher Colleen Saidman.

Rodney leads teacher trainings, workshops, and retreats nationally and internationally, many of them with Colleen. He has also been teaching advanced yoga teacher trainings at studios throughout the country for more than 15 years.

A former dancer with the Oakland Ballet Company and the Matsuyama Ballet Company of Tokyo, Rodney has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Good Morning America, CNN, and PBS, and is featured in more than 30 instructional video/DVD series by GAIM.

The coauthor of two books, Yoga: The Poetry of the Body and Moving Toward Balance, serves as a cochair of the Urban Zen Health and Wellness Initiative, a foundation dedicated to bringing yoga, massage, and holistic therapies to hospitals around the nation.
