Rose van Ooijen

Rose loves to practice and teach flowy, feel-good yoga classes that support you in feeling free, open, and at peace in your body and mind.

Her favourite part of teaching yoga is seeing the softened expressions and relaxed faces after practice, seeing that little extra degree of comfort and ease.

She is passionate about all things that help people feel their best, and live their happiest, healthiest lives and finds a lot of value in a holistic approach; bringing together the body, mind and heart. She practices this both personally and professionally within her yoga as well as with on- and offline clients in her coaching and psychology practice. 

At 16 years old, Rose found the practice of yoga for the first time through a trial lesson on vacation, and fell in love with the calming and soothing effect it had on her. She remembers vividly the feeling of walking out of the studio and resisting the urge to hug everyone and everthing in sight. That first yoga class made her feel a sense of peace, and ‘at-homeness’ unlike anything she’d ever experienced before – and she’s been hooked ever since.

Having always known she wanted to support people’s wellbeing, she began a quest for the elements that support our mental, emotional and physical wellness.

Her studies include psychology (MSc Psychology of Health), 200hrs Yoga Teacher Training with Esther Ekhart, as well as further training in Yin, anatomy, and Pilates, and Holisitic Nutrition as well as Pranic Healing energy work. Next to her formal studies, she’s personally found immense value and learning from the practices of meditation, deep introspection, and self-inquiry. 

Having grown up in different countries and feeling in her heart more like a global citizen than specifically Dutch, Rose is interested in spreading a message of upliftment, wellbeing and consciousness as far and wide as she can take it.
