Hello I’m Rosanna and I offer yoga classes including; pregnancy yoga classes, mum and baby yoga classes, postnatal and parents yoga classes, children’s yoga classes, and yoga for all classes. My yoga classes are in Hampshire and online, to help people maintain physical and emotional wellbeing, using calming yoga practices.
Yoga is a traditional Indian practice that supports physical and emotional health and wellbeing using movement, breath and relaxation. Yoga can be revitalising and help maintain a peaceful body and soul. Yoga may help to relieve aches and pains, improve strength and flexibility, and help us cope better with feelings of stress, worry, anger, sadness and other challenging feelings.
As an experienced and qualified (Yoga Alliance Professionals UK) yoga instructor, I’m able to support wellness for all, including expecting mothers, postnatal parents and their babies, children, and all adults. In the groups, I share effective yoga techniques that are beneficial during momentous, and sometimes challenging times of life. My classes help to gently maintain physical strength and flexibility, relieve aches and pains and stretch out tension and stiffness, as well offering time to practice relaxation and breathing. The sessions may help reduce stress by improving wellbeing in body and mind, giving opportunities to experience the many benefits that yoga can bring physically and emotionally.
In addition to my Birthlight* baby and postnatal yoga teacher qualification, I have an 85 hour pregnancy and postnatal yoga teacher certification from Sally Parkes Yoga which meets the standards of The Yoga Alliance Professionals (UK) and The Yoga Alliance US, and is also certified by the Federation of Antenatal Educators (FEDANT). I am a qualified Yoga Alliance Professionals (UK) Children’s yoga teacher. As part of my continual training I am currently working towards completing my 200 Yoga Teacher Training with The Yoga Alliance Professionals (UK) accredited Sally Parkes Yoga.
Teaching a pregnancy yoga class that’s been running for over 15 years, I have been successfully supporting pregnant women to practice yoga movements and techniques for a positive pregnancy and birth.
After practicing yoga for many years, I trained to become a yoga instructor in 2017. I wanted to provide classes that share yoga methods, in a warm and sociable class environment. Giving people the time and space to nurture their body and mind, by sharing yoga practices in a group, is something I feel passionate about. Hoping to bring some calm and positivity to everyone’s day, my class is a welcoming space for people to connect and make friends with others. Interacting is very important, supportive and valuable for everyone, so I aim to facilitate a comfortable yoga space to enable that during the sessions – especially in pregnancy and postnatal yoga classes, as a network of other parents can be really meaningful during these stages of life.
I’ve been practicing Hatha yoga regularly for several years. My inspiration may have come from my mum and my grandfather (her father), who have practiced yoga for much of their lives. I have a young daughter and son, and I particularly connected with yoga throughout my two pregnancies, during labour and postnatally. I now enjoy doing yoga most days as it brings me physical and mental balance, strength, flexibility, clarity and peace.
I believe that yoga can be a way of life. Many guidelines that were created from traditional yoga philosophies can be implemented throughout our daily lives, to help us work towards a balanced, calm and content existence.
I teach pregnancy yoga, postnatal mum and baby yoga, yoga for parents, childrens yoga, and yoga for all and private 1-1 yoga classes.
*Birthlight is a highly regarded and leading organisation in holistic wellbeing methods for pregnancy, birth, babies and beyond.
