Our Instructors at Tula Yoga are versed in the many styles of Yoga so our students are able to explore and develop a practice unique to themselves. Each one of our experienced instructors brings their own personal approach to their classes, yet all contain the same passion to educate, inspire, and share the practice of Yoga and Fitness with others.

Rosie Lazroe's classes offer a beautiful fusion of breath and body alignment to evoke a sense of calm even in the most challenging of postures. Since discovering yoga in 1998, her style has evolved into a fusion of Iyengar inspired, Vinyasa, Kundalini, and Naam Yoga. Musical accompaniment, from soothing piano to sacred mantras to grooving drum beats is another feature that is always weaved into each class to add an element of fun and flow. Rosie discovered the joys of a consistent yoga practice while studying Early Childhood Education at Montclair University in Montclair, NJ. In 2004 she combined her love of yoga with her educational background and began teaching Kids Yoga to children ages 2-6 at Community Montessori Academy in Verona, NJ. In 2009 she obtained her 200 hour yoga certification at StarSeed Yoga in Montclair, NJ and has been teaching yoga to both adults and children ever since.

Nicole received her 200 hour certification from Tula Yoga and is thrilled to be teaching at Tula! Her goal is to bring peace, happiness, balance, healing and love to all through yoga, and to connect students to their inner strength and healthiest selves.
