Yoga Coach Of Elite Athletes
Team, Group and Individual Coaching
Sean Larkin: "Many times I had thought that 'that's' [yoga] for girls or girly men; not for real athletes. I had a lot to learn.
Very quickly I became astutely aware that this was not just a stretching routine, THIS IS A FULL BLOWN WORKOUT- fit for athletes training at the hightest level."
Deyl Kearin, "I love to challenge myself. I greatly increased my flexibility and have not had any of the back or neck tweaks that I used to get. I can touch my nose to my knees!"
Blake McFarland, Pitcher: 1st Team WSC '09, 2nd Team WSC '08 "I believe it has helped my game tremendously. It (yoga) gives me strength in muscles I have never used before. I seem way more fluid on the mound. Yoga showed me how to utilize the mind."
Carlos Alonso, 3rd Baseman: 2008 All So Cal & WSC 1st Team '08 & '07 "My flexibility increased a tremendous amount. I think it was able to keep me heatlhy throughout the whole season. Yoga helps you have a quite time in your day where you can relax and focus."
Aaron Bauman, Designated Hitter: 2nd Team WSC '08 & '09 "My flexibility has already improved dramatically and I am more confident on the field just knowing that I am far less prone to injury now then I was just a few months ago in the fall."
Brian Gregory, Catcher, Santa Barbara City College, Cal State Northridge "I'm more focused than i have ever been. Working on breathing techniques was a huge part of me becoming more focused, it takes you to a quiet, self-controlled environment where you learn to control your actions."
Dudley LaPorte, 4 Star Tight End; "The quality of the stretch... the level of mental concentration that is gained.
These same skills that I used in yoga, breathing and being calm are the same things that I will apply to the football field during big time plays and situations."
Anthony Hartz, Punter, 1st Team WSC 2007, Nominated All State, SBCC Record 81 yard punt "Yoga helps loosen up my hips and makes my legs more flexible... I can get more reach ... produces more hang time and distance on the ball.
The breathing has helped my confidence. Breathing helps you calm down and relax since you don't think about what is going on around you. You just focus on what you need to succeed."
Weley Korpela: has had several personal best and a course best. Wesley says, "I did see changes in my strength, flexibility, and balance by a lot and I am suprised."
Kasey Kearin:: "I do not have back pain as much as I did before. As far as my mind, I have learned how to relax by breathing."

The Santa Barbara Foresters , a summer collegiate baseball team had the pleasure of working with Rosabeth Dorfhuber last summer. Her grasp of Yoga for Athletes was unparralled as was her ability to communicate it to the athletes. Our players were better to a man for having participated in this program and I know that many of them took this knowledge back to the schools from which they came. Many thanks to Rosabeth , she made us better.
Jim Vatcher of Jaeger Sports Pro Camp, "I could tell right away she (Rosabeth) knew what she was doing. She worked hard and did a great job."
Sandrine Krul: Head Coach; Santa Barbara City College Women's Basketball Team "Rosabeth, you are the light and vision WE want to emulate as coaches! Thanks for caring for our athletes...
My athletes look forward to working with her because she customizes her approach to their needs...
Results she (Rosabeth) helps produce, incuding at times a phenomenal 78% success rate from the free throw line..."
Stephanie Abbott: San Marcos High School JV Softball Coach, "They have better attitudes after you (Rosabeth) work with them. I think my coaching style (combined) with your teaching style creates a really good dynamic. Also, I feel reassured that they won't pull a muscle or injure themselves."
"The most significant change that I have seen in myself... is that I can better control my anxiety with breathing techniques..."
"I am most happy about the improvement in my balance, as I had knee surgery earlier and did not think that my balance would ever be fully restored."
"The strength increase caught me by suprise."
"You said that by doing yoga some people have quite smoking and drinking, and man did I think that was a tall tale. I was wrong. I have cut back smoking and heavily cut back in drinking."

"I have been able to control my stress alot better and cope with everyday troubles a lot better."

"Yoga allows you to align and strengthen your body and mind."
"I feel stronger mentally, physically, and spiritually."
"Yoga simply opens my mind to the beautiful and great things in life that may have otherwise been ignored."
"My flexibility, strength and balance have all improved!"
"I tend to be very competitive, and it was a pleasant surprise for me to be able to let go of that mentality and just be."
