Hi, I’m Rosanna and I teach feel good yoga classes in Liverpool UK. Classes are a hatha style, open to all abilities.
Everyone feels down, tired, stressed, sluggish, lacking in energy, out of sorts… from time to time, and I see yoga as a great way to naturally and effectively boost your mood and increase your overall sense of well-being. I use yoga, combined with a positive approach to help people to feel better in their minds, bodies and spirits.
My Training & Experience
I am a qualified Yoga Teacher, having trained with the British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) in London 2010-2012. I completed the BWY Foundation Course in Berkshire 2009-2010.
In 2009’s The Yoga Show, London Olympia, I took part in the Yoga Aid Challenge, completing 108 Sun Salutations in two hours, with all donations going towards The Special Yoga Centre charity in North London. It was hard work but a lot of fun!
Alongside my in-depth yoga training, I have over a decade of personal experience dealing with, and finding strategies for lifting one’s mood. Through my own experience and research, in talking with a great number of people who share the tendency towards low moods, I have gained a strong insight and good understanding into how they can be helped, prevented and managed. I know how greatly yoga can impact your life, and I have so much empathy and compassion – and it is from this place, that I reach out to help others too.
Wake Up To Health
In March 2009, I set up Wake Up To Health; my first website, with a vision of inspiring and sharing my love for health, yoga and positive living with others. In recognising the impact of a healthy lifestyle on myself, I wanted others to reap the benefits too.
From then, I’ve never looked back in spreading my love for yoga. I’ve set up general group classes, offered one-to-one sessions for various needs and shared my knowledge and interest with hundreds of people.
Aside from yoga
I live with my husband Alex in central Liverpool. You can usually find me relaxing, hanging out in cafes, with my friends or at the cinema.
I like running. Here are some of the races I’ve completed: Liverpool Half-Marathon (March 2019), Birmingham Half-Marathon (October 2019), Liverpool Half Marathon (March 2018), Amsterdam Marathon (October 2010), Milton Park Run 5k, Cambridge (October 2010), Robin Hood Half-Marathon, Nottingham (September 2010), Bayer-Newbury 10k (May 2010), White Horse Harriers Half-Marathon, Oxfordshire (April 2010).
Since age 15, I’ve developed my interest in health and well-being, nutrition, sports and exercise. In particular, enjoying an on-going swimming, running and tennis practice. In 2007, I qualified as an LTA Level 1 Tennis Coach Assistant, which I’ve taught at various Summer Camps.
I am a qualified Primary School Teacher, having completed a Primary with French Specialism PGCE Course at University of Reading in 2010. Whilst setting up my yoga classes, I taught in Cambridgeshire Primary Schools on a supply basis before going full-time yoga in November 2014.
I graduated from University of Leeds in 2008, having completed a four year degree in French and Philosophy. As part of the course, I was fortunate to spend a year living in Paris, teaching English to French students.
