Get to know the people of Delight Yoga

Dr. Erika Rosenberg


Following a brief, misguided sojourn into journalism, Erika succumbed to her natural attraction toward psychology by her second semester in college. She did not want to be a therapist (She was busy enough as a favorite counselor for family and friends!), but instead wanted to understand how behavior worked and, more importantly, how states of mind and body interacted.

So she made a commitment to studying the relationship between behavior and physiology, first in Neuroscience and then finally in Health Psychology. Her own experiences of getting sick during times of high stress led her to pursue a Ph.D. in Health Psychology at the University of California, San Francisco. There she met Paul Ekman, who drew her into the vortex of high-end affective science and detailed study of facial expression. Her dissertation work on anger and heart disease brought the equation full circle — right back to the question of emotions and physical health.

To cope with stress of graduate school, she took up meditation. This led to a lifelong path of studying, practicing and teaching meditation, which later intersected with her research. She now occupies a unique niche at the interface of science and meditation, as a world-renowned expert in facial expressions of emotion, a scientist who studies emotions and meditation, and a meditation teacher who regularly includes science in her teachings.
