Relax Revive Restore Retreat

Rose is passionate about the beautiful practice of yoga. She enjoyed her very first yoga class at the age of 16 whilst at boarding school in Brisbane and now it has become her lifestyle and absolute love – offering her a healthy mind and body, an open heart and a free spirit. Rose completed her teacher training with Being Yoga on the Sunshine Coast and endorses the Being Yoga Vision –  “vibrant health, abundant happiness, and awakened freedom”.

Rose lives with her partner at Montville where she teaches from a home studio as well as runs regular retreats at her beautiful home. She is originally a country girl, spending some of her childhood in remote Northern Territory and Central Queensland. She now appreciates the ‘heart opening’ green canopy of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland on a daily basis!  She is a mother of four beautiful children and a grandmother to Banjo and Ruby, with a third grandchild due this year!

Rose’s main focus as a yoga teacher has been to introduce and teach yoga to as many people as possible, especially those who live in isolated locations, where it is difficult, if not impossible, to find access to a yoga class. For Rose, yoga is a continual journey and believes it can bring enormous happiness to those who practice regularly. She says you don’t have to be good at yoga to do yoga; you just have to come along. A steady consistent practice is the key to opening up your mind, body and heart.

Rose teaches a beautiful, vinyasa flow yoga, sometimes coupling it with a gentle yin type yoga. Vinyasa means ‘to flow’ and the Being Yoga way of practice is to soothe your mind through the rhythmic movement of the body and breath. Postures are linked in a way that promotes ultimate balance; stillness and deep relaxation follow movement, fostering a deeper contact with the interior layers of the mind and heart. Classes will leave you feeling refreshed and energized with a sense of joyous peace. Rose also loves to offer people the healing benefits of a restorative yoga practice once a week at her studio and on retreats.

Rose continues to broaden and deepen her love of teaching by attending as many workshops, teacher trainings and master classes as possible and is about to commence a Graduate Certificate in Yoga Therapy. She is a fan of Shiva Rea and has attended her workshops and master classes in Sydney and India, and has completed Fluid Power, Shiva’s Prana Flow teacher training module with Twee Merrigan. She has also attended the Energetic Alignment module with Twee on the Sunshine Coast.  One of her passions is to attend the Being Yoga retreat in Bali each year where she can totally immerse herself in the sacred practice of yoga. In early 2011 Rose visited India on a yoga and spiritual journey where she attended the OSHO International Meditation Resort in Pune and the International Yoga Festival in Rishikesh attending classes and workshops with some of the world’s greatest yoga teachers, meditation masters and spiritual sages. In 2012, whilst in Bali, Rose completed Being Yoga’s Teacher Training  in Chakra Vinyasa Yoga.

Rose’s passion for the 5000 year old practice of  yoga has connected her with many beautiful students and she feels honoured to have become a part of their lives. She believes that as teachers of yoga, ‘we are only the links that unite our students with yoga, YOGA does the rest!’

Om Shanti Om!!
