About Rodney Yee

Jun 1, 2021

PranaSleep has made a big difference in my life and when anything makes a big difference in my life, I like to tell people about it. My wife at first said endorsing a mattress is a little off the mark for a yoga teacher. Then we got PranaSleep for our house and she slept on it. All of a sudden it was, okay, let’s endorse PranaSleep."

Rodney Yee  - PranaSleep Spokesperson since 2005


Rodney has been curious about the mind and body for as long as he can remember. He was a gymnast, a ballet dancer with the Oakland Ballet Company and the Matsuyama Ballet Company of Tokyo, and a philosophy and physical therapy major at the University of California Davis and Berkeley.

Following the thread of curiosity about mind and body, he took his first yoga class in 1980. He went to yoga in search of flexibility and found a practice that would turn into his life-long passion and career.

In addition to teaching public classes, Rodney leads teacher trainings, workshops, and retreats nationally and internationally. Rodney has been teaching Advanced Yoga Teacher Training courses at studios across the country for over 15 years, and has directed numerous in-depth (18-month) teacher training programs.

Rodney has appeared on Oprah, Good Morning America, PBS as well as many other television broadcasts. He contributes to a variety of yoga and healthy lifestyle publications regularly, including Yoga Journal, Self, Shape, and Fitness, and has been featured in Vogue, Vanity Fair, Glamour, Marie Claire, Elle, O-The Oprah Magazine, New York Magazine, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and USA Today. He has created and appears in over 30 video titles and numerous audio recordings and has written two books.
