France Yoga Retreat
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 running 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, Ruby & Tex.
Rose’s main focus as a yoga teacher has been to introduce and teach the countless benefits of yoga to as many people as possible, and especially those who live in more isolated locations, where it is difficult, if not impossible, to find access to a yoga class, she is passionate about integrating yoga into our western lifestyles and believes yoga will suit anybody who wants to give it a try. Yoga can adapt to your body, there are many different ways to practice yoga. For Rose, yoga is a continual journey and she 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 gentle yin or slow release yoga. Vinyasa practice flows in such a way that it soothes 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 has completed a Graduate Certificate in Yoga Therapy.
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!!
“Breath is central to Yoga because it is central to life……and Yoga is Life.”
