A day in the life
Morning 5k run to and around Princes Park in prep for Liverpool half marathon Sunday 25th
Discussing the need for a space to feel and recognise your emotions (cry too) for overall wellbeing and how yoga isn't about "making shapes" but so much more - self-compassion, being gentle with yourself, being present and not needing to be any more than you are right now
Helping a student gain more mobility in her legs and lessen pain in the outer knee/thigh with stretches for the IT band - who knew there are so many!
Throw in a couple of trips up and down Duke Street, rest and reflection and prepping later for group class at Quaker Meeting House
Love my job
It has been a chilly week, well done for making it to class. Hoping the weather hasn't caused you too much stress and discomfort. We've been lucky to have snow in Liverpool, a pretty and magical sight on some days. It was refreshing to be in the warm at hot yoga yesterday - always enjoy it more during 'winter months'. #yogahub #liverpool #warmup
Does your body pop, click and creak during yoga? Here's a good explanation why we make these sounds when we practise: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLlOuGgeOrc
Ever wonder what those popping and cracking sounds are when you practice yoga. Luckily for you someone asked the question for you. In this video I talk about...
Classes are on as usual this week. Come and grab some 'me time' away from the kids and family if it's half term for you or away from work if you're feeling a bit under it and could do with a break and nice stretch. Just observe the fluctuations of your mind during relaxation, not trying to alter it, simply watching even if you drift off dreaming of pancake flavours... #pancakeday #shrovetuesday #observeyourmind #relaxation
We are back at Exchange Station on Tithebarn street for Friday lunchtime yoga each week! Come and join us and find space and relaxation during your lunch break.
Last couple of days to take advantage of the January offer and bring a friend for free this month. For group classes at Liverpool Innovation Park 5.15pm this evening and Friends Meeting House 6pm tomorrow. Add some extra motivation by picking up a foldable mat with printed yoga poses on both sides from Aldi for £7.99 like two of my students have! #getmotivated #yogafun #beginnerswelcome
Thank you Ellen for a lovely class this morning on Rodney Street. Slowing down time, creating space and sharing your simple yet effective method of teaching, gaining flexibility through strength. Sure going to feel it in the shoulders tomorrow! Join Ellen and me every Sunday fortnight for a 10am start. @el.llen #rodneystreet #sundayyoga #weekendyoga
I amsterdam... I did quite a bit of running a few years back and ran the Amsterdam marathon in 2010. Was such a great time and I remember using my yoga to help keep injuries at bay and focus on breathing deeply. So happy to be running again! Started doing the Princes parkrun at new year and feeling the benefits already - makes for a positive start to 2018. #runner #runningyogi #inhalepositivity #parkrun
[01/12/18] What a great first full week back - lovely seeing all my students at Rodney Street Therapies, WHISC, Henshaws, Liverpool Science Park Innovation Centre, Quaker Meeting House Liverpool as well as private students.

Happy new year! I hope you've enjoyed a good break and ready to hit the mat soon. Let's enjoy a positive start to 2018 together. I'm teaching one-to-one classes this week (do book if you'd like to focus on something particular in a warm, private setting) and group classes start from 6th January. #newyear #samewonderfulyou #positiveintentions #yogaforlife
10 years a yogi. I can still remember my first class with Claire, a very inspirational teacher at Leeds university. Yoga has certainly helped shape my life and I feel thankful for having it to lean on and to support me - so I can pass onto others too. As I go forward into a new year, I am still passionate, still learning and still carrying the same mat bag from my mum! #toyoga #toyou #heresto2018
Merry Christmas from Liverpool!
And that's a wrap... classes are now on break for Christmas. I'm feeling very inspired by my students and have had a wonderful time teaching this year. Enjoy the festive time, put your feet up, rest and I look forward to seeing you in 2018.
I will now be taking to Corpse pose (Savasana)!

Yoga by the Christmas tree this afternoon @whiscwomenshealth Rest at a time of year we often feel more tired, an overall stretch when we want to curl up on the sofa but can benefit greatly from keeping active, both physically and mentally. I've been so proud of these women for showing up each week - a sign of inner strength, dedication and self-motivation. Join us next Monday for a well deserved candle meditation and treats.
From a student this week after yoga:
"I feel warm. I was cold before, but now I feel warm inside."
There are two more Monday classes at WHISC finishing on 11th December before the Christmas break. Come and warm your body and soothe your soul in a safe and supportive space.
Fantastic article by Heather Mason, founder at Yoga Therapy for the Mind at The Minded Institute
"With one in four people affected by mental health disorders at some point in their lives, many people are viewing yoga as an effective strategy that can help protect and restore the mental health of individuals throughout the world... This is just the beginning."
chopra.com With mental health disorders affecting so many at some point in their lives, many affected are viewing yoga as an effective strategy that can protect and restore the mental health of individuals throughout the world. Read how.
It's our fortnightly class this Sunday! Join Ellen for a good stretch, chance for connection with your body & breath and community brunch. Book your place here: https://bookwhen.com/rosannayoga
Creating a warm space this evening for my student at Rodney Street Therapies - somewhere she can come and switch off from work by focusing on physical sensations, how a stretch feels in her body and deep controlled breathing. A real revelation too - becoming aware of the distribution of weight in her body and how this helps to balance better. #proudteacher #selfimprovement #selfawareness
[11/21/17] !No Yoga today at Liverpool Innovation Park, due to a meeting in the conference room that will be going on until late. All other classes are on as usual this week, please see my timetable here http://www.rosannagordon.com/yoga-classes/group-classes/ Apologies for any inconvenience.
There is more and more research going into the benefits of yoga for depression and other mental health issues. These findings published in the New Scientist are pretty impressive, wouldn't you agree?
medicalnewsbulletin.com Yoga is often used for stress relief. A recent study determines if practicing Bikram hot yoga may also reduce symptoms of depression.

Just got back from our amazing honeymoon in Ischia this afternoon - this is us enjoying the sunrise on the ferry to Naples this morning having woken up at 5.30am! All worth it for the views of Vesuvius, pink skies and sun bursting through in the horizon. #honeymoon #myhubbie #ischia

Getting married to my love and now husband Alex on Saturday @stgeorgeshall_liverpool Had the most amazing day despite storms ablazing! All added to the colour and special quality of the day. #rolexwedding #liverpool #stgeorgeshall
Yesterday's Yoga by Skype session made all the more enjoyable by having the pups sleeping in their baskets, only to get up for their own stretch or if one of the poses catches their eye. #yogabyskype #officeyoga

Lovely review from one of my private students I've been teaching since last December. #onetooneyoga #liverpool
Lovely meeting a new student this morning at Rodney Street Therapies. Returning to the practice after a break and refinding strength and confidence on the mat. Not always easy to come back - takes courage which needs to be recognised. #privateyoga #findstrength #buildconfidence
It's such a pleasure to teach this class every Monday - a wonderful group of ladies finding strength and courage, and making space to start the week on a positive note.
Great teaching the students at LIPA Sixth Form College today. I know I would have benefited from doing yoga at school, but I started a little later. There was a sense of calm and focus in the room, and I'm looking forward to coming back next week. #yogaforall #findyourfocus

[09/04/17] It's the little things - not necessarily noticing that you're loads more flexible, but that by focusing on your breathing you're able to relax more in a stretch, not hold so tightly and feel yourself opening up.
