Rosie first discovered yoga after being introduced to the practice by a friend. Having done
lots of fast paced and high energy gym workouts, Rosie thought something like Yoga would
be beneficial to slow down after a stressful and draining time at work. Knowing very little
about the practice, Rosie started a few online classes before deciding to attend a studio -
(Zenko Yoga actually!), this is when she truly began to understand what Yoga was about and
leaned in for more. Rosie committed to 3 classes per week, initially noticing a physical
change in her body, she felt more toned and strong (something she only perceived would
happen from a high intensity gym session). Slowly she began to learn things, deeper
wisdoms that were shared in class, she loved the community vibe and friendships she didn’t
realise she would make, and in slowing down and making this time for herself on her mat, it
meant that her mind became quieter and she was able to gain clarity and connect to the
deeper side of herself that was lost in the busyness of life. Rosie then became pregnant and
used the practice of yoga to guide her through her pregnancy, she was able to continue her
practice right through until full term and she attributes her healthy pregnancy to the
practice of yoga, breath, stillness and gentle movement.
Rosie has had a personal yoga practice now for about 6 years and began pondering the idea
long before that about becoming a yoga teacher. She felt so inspired by each of her
teachers, that she started imagining herself up on the teachers mat guiding a class.
After a recovering from a significant health diagnosis and major abdominal surgery in 2020,
Rosie realised that life isn’t always guaranteed and she used this pivotal point in her life to
follow her dream of becoming a yoga teacher, she pushed past the limiting beliefs and
signed up to the Zenko Yoga 200hr Teacher Training. Rosie is passionate about the power
the mind has over the body and how both are interconnected, she advocates for conscious
parenting, and self responsibility regarding physical health of the body and the health of the
As a teacher, Rosie is creative, passionate, clear and concise. She brings a loving energy into
her classes whilst infusing some light hearted humour, wisdom and anecdotal insights.
Rosie’s goal for her students is for them to access more moments of flow state, to notice
the pause between the breath, she encourages people to feel more connected to
themselves, and allow space for more self awareness by moving energy through the body
with movement, and making space for more and more moments of presence.
Getting to know the Zenko Team
Do you have a mantra/quote that you often turn to?
"What happened, happened, and it couldn't have happened any other way... because it didn't " Peter Crone. And I often say to myself at times of self doubt or sabotage "I am loving, lovable and I approve of myself" this pulls me out of my ego self and allows me to focus on the bigger picture.
How do you fill up your love tank?
Yoga obviously, macramé, time in solitude (and meditating), experiencing life through my son's eyes - play and imagination, time with friends
What advice would you give someone wondering whether to try yoga for the first time?
Just show up on your mat and be curious, don't have any expectations on achieving certain poses, breathe, let go of how you think it will feel but take notice of how you do feel at the end of your class compared to the start.
