As long as you can breathe, you can practice yoga
Hello! I'm Roisin.
I'm a yoga teacher based in Winchmore Hill, North London. I have been practicing yoga for about 7 years, and decided to train to become a teacher after realising the profound impact yoga has on my life. I completed my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga London in 2015, and went on to further my education by qualifying as a pregnancy and post natal teacher. I have spent a lot of time developing my knowledge on various training courses, retreats and workshops, and the more I learn, the more I love what the world of yoga has to offer.
My areas of specialist interest are women’s health (primarily around fertility, pregnancy and post natal recovery). I am also very passionate about breath, and spend a lot of time learning and researching the benefits of breath within yoga.
My teaching style is based on Vinyasa Yoga, which means movement with breath. My classes focus on alignment, stability, and freedom of movement and are accessible to everyone.
Anyone can practice yoga.
I have taught yoga in studios, offices, gardens, gyms, pubs, schools, parks, roof terraces, basements, church halls and living rooms. Where there's a floor, there can be yoga! I've taught young people, older people, men and women. People who can't touch their toes, people who can get their leg behind their head. I have had students about to go into labour, and students with chronic pain or illness. People who have had a full day at the office and need some space to breathe. Women who are new to motherhood and are desperate for some time to stretch their tired bodies. Men recovering from injury. People who laugh, people who cry, people who have never been to a yoga class before and have no idea what to expect. And people who just fancy a bit of yoga.
There's no judgement. Everyone has their own stuff going on, their own reason to come to the mat. My role is to provide students a space to breathe, find calm, and let go. And more often than not, everyone leaves feeling better than when they arrived.
