Manuela Rohr is an expert certified Yoga Instructor, a Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist, and Group Facilitator with over 33 years of experience in body-mind healing. She infuses the age-old wisdom of Yoga with the therapeutic mindfulness-based practice of Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy both in Europe and the US, to provide a unique and powerful healing experience. 


Manuela believes that Yoga supports the person you’re becoming and that as long as you can breathe, you can practice Yoga. She moves her students toward a life worth living, no matter the obstacles. Life’s a balancing act, and Manuela chooses to embrace what’s possible every day. She’ll show you how to navigate the bumpy transition from suffering to freedom and is committed to living her life with deep joy. 


Manuela also conquered the extraordinary challenge of raising a special needs child. Her daughter Sarina, 29, is on the autism spectrum. She was born a micro-preemie four months too soon, weighing one pound and fifteen ounces. 


Manuela calls her daughter her greatest teacher. 


She works with women in transition who are curious about overcoming their limitations in body, mind, and spirit. You’ll learn soulful practices to include in your day to overcome life’s impossible challenges. Caretakers-at-heart and special needs parents are drawn to her because they know she’s walked a mile in their shoes. 


She shares her tools in private sessions and transformational workshops in Germany, the US, and online. She’ll teach you what embodied mindfulness means, and to grow a healthy relationship with your body. She’ll help you engage in self-presence exercises, and let go of outdated patterns and beliefs to create new ones that support you on your journey.  


Manuela shares her healing journey with her daughter in blogs and books. She is the co-author of the #1 Best Seller The Ultimate Guide to Self-Healing Techniques and co-authored the books Stories from the Yogic Heart and Winning in Life and Work. Dare to Dream. Her soon to be published powerful biographical book, I Cannot Die Until my Daughter Belongs, documents her path as a special mother. 365 🏝Tiny Islands offers soulful self-care practices that help you thrive despite life challenges. 


Born in Germany, she now lives with her husband and daughter in Santa Rosa, CA. If she is not on her mat or on the computer she climbs trees, dances, loves to cook and to travel. Find her blogs, book information, and programs at and join her free Facebook group, where she supports her students to Embrace what’s possible!
