WHO IS ROMA?

A little bit about me…

I am a girl who fell in love with yoga. First of all for the flexibility it gave me, which helped me in my dance class. Then, while finding myself deep in the clutches of a corporate 8am – 8pm, for the space and calm it brought to my life when I found myself tearful with anxiety, or simply unable to switch off.

This led me to a crossroads where I made the conscious decision to take time to delve into the practice of self-care. I was the sort of person who would feel guilty if I wasn’t using every moment of the day ruthlessly efficiently and the thought of taking time for myself was a concept I had never entertained before. Yoga allowed me time to “breathe and reboot” virtually guilt free, which was a novel and wonderful concept!! The increased flexibility and strength turned out to be just a wonderful side effect of my new found “me time.”

Where I trained…

I completed my 200hr yoga training with the fantastic Sally Parkes and can honestly say that the year of 2017 will forever be one that changed my life.  In 2018, I qualified to teach pre and post natal yoga, continuing my teaching with Sally. In 2019, I completed a mindfulness Diploma. In 2020, I immersed myself in training on yoga’s history, including cultural appropriation and colonisation and am very committed to honouring yoga’s roots and using yoga for social justice. I am now on a journey to share not only the wonderful effect yoga can have on your life, but how it can help illuminate and change our perspectives to create a better world. If I can change your life even 1% of the way it changed mine, then that would put a huge smile on my face.

Teaching style…

My teaching style is informal and inclusive, yoga is for every body and as such everyone is welcome. Classes feature gentle hatha and vinyasa based asanas, with touches of restorative yoga and meditation to counteract the stresses that modern life can bring. I offer you only 1 thing, a safe place to come and be yourself and hopefully you discover the magic of yoga along the way!
