Name: Rosalind Evans
Rosalind Evans set foot in her first yoga class at the age of 15, to this day she clearly remembers being in awe of the 75 year old teacher with her feet behind her head in lotus. Since then, Rosalind’s yoga journey has progressed through various lineages and styles including Bikram, Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Yin.
Rosalind is a trained classical ballet/contemporary dancer with a Bachelor of Fine Arts majoring in dance from Queensland University of Technology. Rosalind danced professionally with The Wiggles for a number of years and has 14 years teaching experience and is the NSW Junior Women’s Artistic Gymnastics development squad’s dance coach.
The movement of yoga has always presented a sense of joy for Rosalind, however it was when she transitioned from professional dancer to a corporate career in media advertising that the calming and grounding effects of yoga really hit home. Having completed her first 200hrs training with Power Living, Rosalind left the corporate world and immersed herself entirely in the yoga realm and further exploration of the body, mind and breath. Since then she has accomplished a further 70hrs Yin Yoga training with Duncan Peak as well as 200hr training – Moon, Sun, Fire Hatha yoga with the inspirational Octavio Salvadore in Bali.
Rosalind loves to share her passion and dedication for yoga with her students and takes joy in guiding each individual through this transformational process. Rosalind’s classes are dynamic and strong, with a deep connection to the breath
Getting to know the crew:
What is your favourite Asana posture? Why?
Utthita Trikonasana (Triangle pose). I find this pose is pivotal to opening up and strengthening my lower back, legs and core, enabling me to extend deeper into my back, side and forward bends. It also helps to develop breath inhalation and stimulates digestion.
What is your favourite colour?
White – it’s pure, simple and goes with everything.
What sound do you love?
The rain when you’re tucked up in bed at night.
