About rosieglo

yoga alliance logoAs a Mum of 3 young girls, in between the netball, Guides, drama, football, cheerleading, Brownies, piano, swimming and hormones, I love to practise and teach yoga. To quote my favourite tea advert it, ‘brings me back to me’. I’ve been practising yoga for 15 years and as well as allowing me to carve out a bit of restorative time, yoga helps me to promote a healthy mind and body balance. Like many people, I can spend far too much time hunched over a laptop and yoga provides some relief from our ever-demanding screen-sized culture. I’m originally from Devon and when I’m not taxi-ing or yoga-ing you can usually find me heading towards the sea. Rosie is a registered teacher with Yoga Alliance UK (RYT 200hr).

Classes

rosieglo yoga classes combine Hatha and Vinyasa flow yoga.  Hatha works with poses and breathing to achieve a well-rounded practise, strength and peace.  Vinyasa flow is a flowing sequence of postures designed to strengthen and tone.  Concentrating on the connection between breath and movement it encourages focus and really gives your mind a break from the daily demands.  Suitable for all, you are encouraged to work to your own level with each pose.  The classes are intended to be gently challenging to enable you to truly feel the benefits and grow your yoga practise over time.
I’m keen to make the classes at Rosieglo really accessible to help more people experience the benefits of yoga. Classes include Beginners, Over 55s, Children’s Yoga, Teen Yoga, Teens & Parents, Yoga Flow and Sports Yoga. Check out the full timetable here.

Frequently asked questions

How do I book?

You can easily book and pay for your class online. Classes start from £8.50 per class with a 10 class Flexipass or £10 for a single class. Our Flexipass is the most popular option and is valid across all Rosieglo Yoga classes* for 6 months.  You can book and cancel your classes online and if you can give 24 hours notice the class is added back to your pass.

Please always book ahead as classes are limited to 12 mats and we’d hate to have to turn you away.

If online payments just aren’t for you, you can also pay for your class in person on arrival at the full rate.

*Unfortunatley the Rosieglo 10 class Flexipass is only valid against Rosieglo Yoga classes as found here.  The Flexipass cannot be used against other classes run by teachers who hire the space.

Where is the Rosieglo Yoga space

The new Rosieglo Yoga space can be found in a lane just behind Bath Road Post Office, and can be accessed from Clare Street or Naunton Parade.  Please visit our Contact page to find directions.

What should I wear & bring
Comfortable stretchy clothing such as leggings and t-shirt or any usual fitness wear – nothing too baggy.   You may also want to bring a jumper and some socks to pop on ready for Savasana (the relaxing bit) towards the end of the class to keep you snuggly, as your body temperature may drop. Ideally bring your own yoga mat if you can.  Please, no camping mats or foam mats as they can cause injury.  A yoga mat is specifically designed to provide the necessary grip and cushioning to ensure a safe practise.  You can pick up a budget yoga mat in Argos, TK Maxx and most supermarkets for around £10.  
What if I'm not very flexible
Then yoga is really going to help :) Don’t worry, you really don’t need to be flexible to practise yoga. Each body is unique and has different levels of natural flexibility.  Practising yoga will encourage your muscles to lengthen and strengthen and you may find that your flexibility quickly improves.
Is the class suitable for beginners?
Absolutely! It’s a multi-level class and many of the poses have different options so that you can tailor your practise to your own level, depending on how you are feeling that day. Please let me know if it’s your first time either by pinging me an email or grabbing me before the class begins.
What if I am injured or have health issues?
Yoga can be really beneficial at helping some injuries and health issues but you must check with your doctor first. Please contact me before your class so that we can discuss any modifications if necessary.
What happens in a class?
Please arrive in good time.  We will always check for beginners or injuries at the beginning of each class.  We begin with a gentle warm up before turning on some tunes and  easing into a sun salutation sequence, followed by a couple of flows which link poses together.  We move quite slowly, but don’t be fooled – your muscles will be working their socks off!  The sequence may change a little from week to week but you will always have a well-rounded and balanced practise.  We finish each session with Savasana – about 5 mins of relaxation.  Some teachers believe Savasana to be the most important pose to conquer.  It teaches us to be still and to allow our mind and bodies to fully absorb the benefits of our yoga practise.  Although it can be tempting to rush off and skip savasana, please treat yourself to 5 minutes of stillness.
Do you do any chanting?
Nope.
Do men do yoga too?
You bet!  More and more men are discovering the benefits of yoga, particularly to complement more energy intensive exercise such as cycling, tennis and running.  Yoga works the muscles in a different way and can be very effective at improving overall performance and stamina.  Yoga is also a great antidote to the hours spent hunched over a computer or sat driving.  It will awaken your core, release tension in your back, neck and shoulders and improve strength and flexibility.  Don’t be fooled – you will sweat, and it’ll be worth every drop :)
Can I eat before a yoga class?
It’s best to avoid eating for 2 hours before a class if possible as we will be doing twists, bends and flexes which can feel uncomfortable on a full stomach.
Can I do yoga if I'm pregnant?
Yoga can be very beneficial and special when pregnant but I would recommend joining a specific antenatal yoga class.
Am I too old to do yoga?
Never!  Yoga becomes more beneficial as we age, aiding balance, stiffness and mindfulness. We can adapt each pose to suit your level and gradually grow with practise, so please do come along and try a class.
Cancellations and refunds

If you have purchased a 10 class Flexipass you can cancel your class with at least 24 hours notice and the class will be added back to your Flexipass.

Refunds are not available on single class bookings, however you are welcome to join another class that week subject to availability. Please get in touch to check.
