About Lotus: Lotus Anwen Wachiwi Sagebrush began her journey with healing and strengthening the body through life as a professional contemporary dancer. Thereafter, she began her studies and teaching in traditional yoga therapy rooting it back to ayurveda and tailoring to the individual. Thai yoga bodywork is a complex theoretical science that works on prevention and rebalancing the body from malady. Anwen places extra emphasis on ayurvedic yogic management and herbalism to root the work further back to ITTM.

Hatha yoga is a branch of yoga primarily concerned with mastery of the body, and it is arguably the tradition most familiar to Western culture. The term is derived from the Sanskrit ha, meaning "sun," and tha, meaning "moon," leading to the common interpretation that Hatha practices are designed to unite and balance these two energies. The forms of Hatha Yoga practiced through Rosa Albus are: Classical Hatha & Vinyasa Krama, Ashtanga vinyasa, Yin yoga, and Vedic Thai Yoga. Yes that term made known by westerners, Thai Massage, is rooted in the Tree of Yoga traditionally. Thai yoga therapy is rooted within Tibetan, Chinese, and East Indian yoga everyone. Marma Chikitsa has roots within Indian Martial Arts!

What is Marma Chikitsa?

Marma Chikitsa is a non-medicinal health intervention that uses natural energy and self-healing powers to re-energize the body and its systems. Marma Chikitsa is an effective way to treat many illnesses without the use of medications and can provide fast pain relief. This practice originates from Kalaripayattu, the oldest form of martial arts that comes from South India, and is similar to the Meridian system and is one of the roots of acupuncture in Chinese medicine. Marma & Ayurveda Marma points create pathways that connect all layers of the body, gross and subtle, through the nervous system.

"Now, the classical idea of the Thai Ruesi Hermit is that of an ascetic who lives in caves or in the forest and spent his (or her) life practicing meditation in seclusion. It’s from these ancient hermits where the term and practice Rue-Si Dat Ton emerged, meaning “the ascetic who stretches himself.” Ruesi Dat Ton Statues at Wat Pho | History and Pictures (

Yoga assists and supports the body and relaxes the mind to realize we are more than just this vehicle. We all have a life to live, and our body/mind/heart needs to stay in balance so we can do our work.  All is interconnected from the mycelium and plants to the microbiome in our body being at one with the earth, to the universe. 

Whether it be stress, physical tension and pain, injury, growing yoga practice, burn out, chronic fatigue, disease or surgery prevention; the yogic methods taught through Rosa Albus help address your concerns. Yoga enhances one's quality of living and opens dormant faculties. 

Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root word ‘yuj’, which means ‘to join’, or ‘to unite’. This union is between the individual consciousness and universal consciousness.
