Biography

Rosie De Pasquale, Professor, Coordinator of The Integrative Mind & Body Program. Professor DePasquale, E-RYT500 certified in Hatha Yoga, Prenatal yoga & Power Pilates Mat certification. In 2010 she launched The Integrative Mind & Body Program and has been Coordinator of IMB program since its inception. Her yoga practice began in the 80’s with a passion for Hatha and Ashtanga yoga and she has been teaching yoga since 2004. Her additional trainings include meditation, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, yoga anatomy, Ayurveda Perfect Health Program at the Chopra Center for Wellness, Contemplative Learning in Higher Education, and Balancing the Chakras, at the Chopra Center. Professor De Pasquale started at Pratt in 1988 teaching in the Fashion Department and Chairing the Fashion Department for 10 of those 23 years. Professor De Pasquale admits that the transition from Fashion to Yoga was bitter sweet. “My passion for yoga was with me throughout my carrier in fashion, but as the IMB program began to flourish on the Pratt Brooklyn campus I had to make the decision of letting one of my passions supersede the other, and I am so thankful for that change in my life. I believe that the physical practice on the mat has taught me to transition and unfold in my life off of the mat with balance and inner peace. The practice of yoga continually inspires me to live in the moment more mindfully, and as I teach I learn and am reminded to be humble and grateful for all that is in my life. In my classes I like to combine creative sequencing, and inspiration to help deepen the students practice.”
