about me

Hello there! I'm Rose, founder and instructor of Breath of Life Yoga.

My yoga journey began when I was travelling in Thailand. At a hostel in Chiang Mai, I met two recently qualified yoga instructors who gave a few of us travellers a yoga session on the balcony of our hostel...and I've been hooked ever since! I went on to train in 200YTT with Jamie Yoga in Ashtanga Vinyasa in 2016, which instilled me with a sharp eye for safe alignment, and a deep knowledge of how to modify poses to suit different body types and abilities, along with a thirst to enrich my theoretical understanding of yoga, beyond the asanas. In 2018 I took my training further, by completing 300YTT in Rishikesh; known as the birthplace of yoga, in India. This course offered me a richer understanding of the roots of yoga and Yoga Therapy, and gave me greater confidence in my modern spin on teaching asana (the physical practice of yoga). 

After qualifying, I began teaching beach yoga on Rhossili Bay, and was soon offered to teach at Hotpod in Swansea. I started my own class around the same time, and naturally developed my own style of teaching in these early days, which continues to grow today. I slowly built up my classes over the following months. I also trained in Children's & Teens Yoga at the Yoga Satsanga Ashram in Pembrokeshire in summer of 2016, which has had a huge influence in refining my teaching style; with the traditional, authentic approach that they taught. I continue to regularly attend classes and workshops, to continue my own personal and professional development. 

I work with various companies, offering group sessions and retreat days (Big Blue Adventures, Swansea University), teaching corporate yoga (Coastal Housing, Vizolution) and I currently teach at various studios and community spaces.

A big passion of mine is taking yoga beyond the mat; this is one of the reasons why I offer retreat days, through my Salt & Light Retreat business. These days offer time to nurture and nourish yourself both physically and mentally by connecting to ourselves, one another and to nature. I host regular Moon Gatherings, retreat days and weekend retreats.
