BUFFALO, NY—Today Space on Seneca yoga studio announced that it will host Marco Rojas, renowned yogi recognized as ‘One of the 100 Most Influential Yoga Teachers in America’ by Sonima, in Buffalo for a weekend of special classes held at Seneca One.
“After living and working in Boston, New York and Los Angeles, it was my dream to return to Buffalo and contribute to its revival by opening a yoga studio,” said Colleen E. Heidinger, owner and instructor at Space on Seneca. “Once Space on Seneca opened in 2019, it became my dream to invite one of my favorite teachers to bring his expertise to our yogi community. When I first started practicing yoga, it was Marco that accelerated my practice, increased my self awareness and inspired me to want to incorporate yoga into my life forever.”
Marco ‘Coco’ Rojas is a messenger of yoga. His teachings follow the Krishnamacharya tradition. He trained to be a teacher under the guidance of Chuck Miller and Maty Ezraty, creators of YogaWorks, in Los Angeles in 2003. For over seventeen years, Coco has cultivated a vital and rewarding yoga experience throughout New York City in studios such as YogaWorks, ISHTA, Pure Yoga, and Equinox. Currently, he teaches classes exploring the essence of yoga on Zoom.
