Rosie has been teaching Vajrasati yoga in Brighton, Newhaven and Seaford for seven years, and her drop in classes continue to attract a lively group of local yogis. A Londoner by birth, she moved South in 1987 and fell in love with the Sussex landscape and especially Seaford’s beach and coastline. She also tuned into the spiritual magic of Seaford and in addition to yoga she leads & attends local meditation groups. Rosie has taught seven holidays in Spain over the last four years and in the last three years she has taken a group to West Crete, which was so beautiful she will returning there this June. After a popular weekend at Claridge House last spring, Rosie is returning this year in August. Rosie started regular yoga practice in 1999 on her doctor’s advice as a way to keep her arthritic knees moving. She trained in Iyengar yoga for two years, and subsequently attended Hatha, Scaravelli, and Khundalini classes. It was the Vajrasati Yoga School which brought everything together, and she felt she had found her spiritual home. She graduated from the Vajrasati teacher training course and holds a 500hr Yoga Alliance accredited teaching qualification. She has also completed further training to teach students with ME and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, elements of which she uses with students who have other limitations to their practice. Rosie’s teaching focuses on using the breath and she encourages students to work meditatively, listening closely to their own bodies and breath, and using their inner resources to develop postures only as the body allows, and without grasping. The classes are therefore suitable for everyone whatever their age and level of experience, including complete beginners. They are also deeply enriching and great fun!
I have just returned from a retreat that was held at Claridge House. I can`t recommend it highly enough, the friendly staff, fabulous vegetarian food , beautiful gardens and the lovely clean and airy rooms all added up to an absolutely wonderful stay - June 2017
Our first visit here and we certainly feel we are going away with `rest and renewal`. We enjoyed the comfortable accommodation, had a lovely massage and the daily quiet times were also very special for us - January 2017
The room was spotless and very comfortable, the vegetarian breakfast was gorgeous, lovely fresh produce, dairy free and gluten free items too. Tranquillity and peace all around in the lovely 2 acres the house is set in - June 2017
Everything. Lovely friendly staff. Good food. A cosy "feel at home" style place amongst trees and green, giving peace and calm. Surely would stay again! So close to Gatwick Int. Airport. That`s a real convenience for foreign travellers - November 2016
Wonderful and welcoming staff, who were very attentive and happy to help. Beautiful property with large clean rooms. This is a health retreat as well as b&b style accommodation, so no TV in the rooms or alcohol. Very close to the village for dinner or drinks though - October 2016
