A letter from me to You…

Dear Practitioner,

Let me say thank you for taking a moment to read this letter. I am a firm believer that people’s paths cross for a reason and that students always find the right course for them. Before you continue scrolling trough this document, allow me to tell you about my yoga journey.

Back in 2011 my life brought me to South Africa, I was in my early twenties searching for my true passion and trying to figure out what to do with my life. I had just begun my spiritual search for happiness. You see, I had a very religious upbringing, which, nonetheless, provided me with no sense of peace or happiness. I was on a quest for more…

One day I found myself joining a local gym, which also happened to have a timetable for yoga classes. I signed up for my first yoga class. “It was nice”, I thought to myself aftewards, but it was not really for me. I signed up to a different class. “Ok, that’s interesting..” I started to feel curious about yoga, so I signed up for my third class the same week. After trying a few more classes, I found myself in a Vinyasa based class and the flow of it all – synchronicity of movement and breath – made me feel… at home.

Everything suddenly started to make sense: I felt happy and present while on the mat, the feeling I don’t think I experienced before. I remember it so well: lying on my mat in Savasana with my hands on my belly, I looked at the teacher and thought to myself “I want to help others find this too”. That moment on I was hooked.

One day, a few weeks later, our yoga teacher was late for the class and so, not being sure if she was going to show up at all, I started practicing on my mat while waiting. There were a few other women in the studio who started following my lead assuming I was an instructor. But it wasn’t until after a few classes a week or so later when my teacher came up to me and said “you should do a teacher training, you would be a great teacher”. I felt overjoyed that night, so much so, I could not fall asleep!

Two years later, I attended my first yoga teacher training, while taking a paid holiday leave from my corporate job. Two more years later I quit my corporate career and began teaching yoga full-time. Shortly after I opened my first SUP Yoga business in Malta, launched Trapeze Yoga on the island, started to teach internationally: workshops and trainings, appeared on yoga DVDs, had been invited to co-teach both in-person and online trainings, certified a number of teachers in various styles of yoga who now successfully teach yoga for a living.

My biggest project yet is Island Yoga Teacher Training Academy which is being launched in Malta in February 2020. After spending over €20,000 for my own yoga education, it has been my goal to provide high quality yoga teacher trainings locally at a reasonable price and having my own yoga studio Island Yoga finally allows me to do that.

What was once only a dream is now my reality!

How about you?

I could not possibly know where you are right now in your life. Maybe you – like me – would like to escape your corparate job which does not fulfill you? Maybe you enjoy yoga so much that you feel the calling to share it with others? Maybe you dream of one day travelling the world as a yoga teacher?

What is your goal?

Yoga can be anyting you want it to be, all that is needed is a clear goal and your determination. Teaching yoga will take you to the places you did not know you could reach: inwardly and out. Trust me when I say that if you feel that inner calling for diving deeper into this experience, let there be no doubts and take this letter as a sign, that yes, you can do it too!

It is my true passion, my life’s purpose and the reason I am on this earth – to help others discover their potential through the art of teaching yoga. If this training is speaking to you, it would be my absolute honour to guide you trough your yoga journey and help you discover the best version of yourself as a yoga teacher.

Your uniqueness is your super power and this training will provide you with the knowledge and confidence to share your gifts with those around you.

Reviews from Previous Courses

I cannot recommend the 200hr Vinyasa YTT with Rosita highly enough. I was very impressed by the comprehensive program and in-depth information provided during the course - from the daily practices, to the informative and technical classes, detailed discussions with Rosita and the guest lecturers at Island Malta. I deepened my understanding about many inter-related topics like yoga philosophy. The anatomy classes provided a solid foundation and understanding of the mechanics of the body in a way that was easy to relate to. The assignments were well spaced out across the weeks. The feedback was very encouraging and constructive, inviting the student to reflect on their development. After completing the course I’ve developed an even greater love and appreciation for yoga and more than that, it really did prepare me for teaching in a real classroom environment. If I had the opportunity to complete this course again, I would in a heartbeat.
Aleksandra Tomovska
"Island Yoga’s teacher training course was a great learning and physical experience. Rosita's approach is the perfect balance between challenging the student whilst also instilling them with the confidence to take that challenge on. Sticking to the studios modern ethos the course took a logical standpoint towards yoga, helping one understand how and why yoga positively effects one the way it does. This set the ideal foundation, however the fellow students and I wish to further our practice. The part times approachability offered the opportunity to strengthen my practice and have time for self reflection between sessions - two things of great benefit during such an experience. The teacher training recofirmed my intuitive gravitation towards yoga. The courses focus on teaching itself, provided me with a voice of certainty that I did not have prior. Every session presented a new and exciting obstacle for the group to take on, keeping us on our toes (balanced of course haha). Commit, pursue, and notice the shift - thank you Rosita!"
Emma Fsadni
"I absolutely loved doing the 200Hr Vinyasa Yoga teacher training at Island Yoga. The course is very well organised, full of interesting lectures and fun teaching practices. Rosita is very charming,supportive, professional and motivational. I would like to say a big thank you to Rosita for making this course an unforgettable experience for me. I have learnt so much about yoga and met great people. Highly recommend it for people who would like to become a yoga teacher or for whose who would like to expand their knowledge on yoga."
Natalya Shabalina
"My experience on the 200YTT at Island yoga will be a memorable one. The course was well-designed, professionally structured and tackled a number of aspects on yoga, the anatomy and philosophy which are essential to anyone seeking to deepen their knowledge and skills, whether to further their aspirations as a yoga instructor or even simply broaden their personal yoga practice. The course focuses on one's development as an instructor giving crucial advice on communicating with students of all levels and fostering an awareness of oneself and others. I recommend the course to anyone who is curious, dedicated and wishes to further their practice and skills. Rosita and her team are professional, passionate and great mentors. Thank you!"
Will Privitera
"I have attended the 6 weeks course, and it has been an amazing experience which I surely will not ever forget. The course has been professionally prepared and delivered throughout - from the beginning till the end. Rosita is a perfectionist and that clearly is reflected in the quality of the whole course. It has a great balance between online learning and in-person practice. It also gives you a benefit of practicing the actual teaching and cueing the students on how to perform certain positions and flows. I loved the anatomical approach to the teaching and really focusing on the science behind yoga, which gives me now a great tool at hand to convince people to the benefit of it. I also really enjoyed guest speakers, which kept the content of the course interesting and very informative. Apart from advancing in the teaching practice, I have also advanced in my own yoga practice thanks to Rosita’s teaching. She is a very experienced teacher and knows many tricks and ways to achieve the next level in asana practice and that had been very beneficial for me in advancing in many demanding poses. I would recommend this course to everyone passionate about yoga! "
Kamila Chmielewska
"YTT with Rosita has been superb. Rosita is highly professional and passionate in her work. The course design and approach was great! Practical and up-to-date with current trends and research, detailed pose breakdown, in-depth anatomy from qualified physiotherapists and a good historical overview of yoga. Teaching practice begins from day one, and Rosita dedicates individual attention to understand your journey and level. I had been practicing yoga regularly for 5 years before I embarked in and although this ain't a perquisite, I know it helped me greatly. Most importantly and despite my background in yoga, I have deepened my practice tenfold in the past 6 weeks. Rosita's classes are so well prepared, I am constantly amazed. Proud to call my mentor."
Sarah Abela
"I really enjoyed my 200hr YTT in Island Yoga Malta. A complete training in which you get to know the posture clinic, anatomy and cover very interesting topics. We had as well an e-learning platform to find all videos with lectures and practical examples, that help with the study and the learning process. The approach is practical and with Rosita as mentor you will gain more security in yourself and you´ll feel prepare to teach Vinyasa yoga without difficult. "
Monica Rodrigues
The training was very professional. Combining both theory and practice with additional business information, it strongly equipped me with all that I was looking for - the knowledge and experience to manage my own practice and start teaching others. The most important advantage in Rosita's Yoga Teacher Training is that after 2 months of attendance, you are fully ready to begin the new profession. Highly recommended!
Karolina Mielczarek
Where to begin? Everything about the 200hr course was incredible! These past 6 weeks have flown by so quickly, and I will forever treasure them. This course exceeded my expectations.. not only did I learn so much about my own personal yoga practice and how to teach confidently and properly, I also gained so much knowledge in why we should practice yoga and the effects and benefits it has on our body. This course is so informative, a lot of hard work but WORTH IT! I am so happy to have completed this course, and met such lovely people along the way. Rosita is an amazing person through and through, all her experiences and uplifting personality has really helped me through this journey. Can't thank her enough! 100% Recommend, so happy!
Lexi Gatt
I am happy that I chose to study at Island Yoga Malta. The studio is beautiful with a great atmosphere. The curriculum of the course is well-rounded and comprehensive, with knowledgeable and passionate lecturers. The time just flew as the course was so interactive and enjoyable. Rosita is very professional and kind teacher, who was there for us at each step of the way and give us all special, individual attention, so we could reach our goals no matter what is our background and our starting point. I was always a shy person, didn’t like to talk in front of people, however once I finished the course I was ready to teach with confidence. Now I can say that I enjoy talking as I feel the appreciation of the students, when I share the knowledge I got. Teaching gave me something I never experienced before, so the course was definitely worth it.
Linda Fábián
Yoga teacher training with Rosita exceeded my expectations offering a well-rounded, challenging, yet fun course! There was a perfect balance between online and face-to-face learning - with engaging online modules/in-studio lectures on anatomy, yoga philosophy, plus the opportunity to practice teaching with the other students early on in the course. Rosita provided me with the knowledge and confidence to be able to teach a full vinyasa class for various levels - something in which I never thought I would be able to do! What resonated with me most was that Rosita’s approach to yoga teaching is practical and inclusive - reinforcing that yoga is for everyone. I not only feel ready and confident to teach a variety of students but I’ve also deepened my practice and grown personally throughout the course. The Island Yoga studio is gorgeous, offering a great space to learn, practice, and connect with other like-minded YTT students. Rosita was super supportive, pushed me out of my comfort zone, and provided ongoing feedback. 

Overall, it was a wonderful YTT course and I would recommend it to anyone who would like to deepen their practice and become a well-rounded yoga teacher.
Natasha Lutrov
I’ve been practising yoga for a few years now and I’ve never expected to become a teacher one day! I decided to enrol myself to the 200-hour YTT for many reasons: to bring my practice to the next level, to understand better the poses and the philosophy, to work consciously on how to correct my posture and to challenge myself with something extremely new to me. I should say that everything succeeded beyond all expectations. I’m very grateful that I’ve found a teacher and mentor like you, Rosita, who helped me a lot improve my practice, my knowledge and my self-esteem. You constantly supported me during my journey, sharing tips, knowledge and your big passion. Now I’m able to create my own flows, teach classes, work on myself and share yoga with others! A life-changing experience that I will always bring with me. Thank you.
Francesca Asconio
I can genuinely say that I loved every single bit of the training, and so grateful for joining. Enjoyed that we were focusing on the teaching, anatomical aspects and practice. Personally I liked this approach more and it made me want to learn more and more about human body and physical aspects of yoga. Thank you Rosita for the overall amazing experience and for bringing out new skills and characteristics myself and probably other girls never knew we had!
Madara Lielpetere

The training has gone beyond my expectations of what I though it would be. I received more knowledge and information that I imagined I would.

I honesty loved the teacher training held by Rosita. I loved the practice time, the detailed explanations provided and the incredible personal development gained during the intense course. Cherry on the cake of this amazing experience was Rosita herself. She is such a beautiful and inspiring teacher! Her methods are clear, instructions on point and she really pushes to break your own limits, fears and insecurities. I strongly recommend her as person, teacher and mentor!

The Yoga Teacher Trainig of Rosita left me satisfied and with met expectations. The covered topics were well designed and presented and I was genuinely surprised from the knowledge that was brought down to us, the students.

The online learning platform added to the above with practical examples and professional advice on how to avoid injuries during sessions. A well worth it experience which left me without regrets for starting it. Go for it!
Hristo Hristov
The 200YTT was very informative and fun at the same time. You get to know the poses in more detail, the correct way of doing the poses and the different variations you could do with it plus their benefits on your body. The actual teacher training sessions are very helpful as it prepares you for the real thing that you will do after the training. Instructors are very knowledgeable and very helpful on all the things you need and would want to know! Always very supportive and encouraging.

Rosita is a great teacher with well rounded knowledge and great passion and determination that’s what strikes me the most about her. The course was extremely informative and I learnt much more than just yoga. Extremely suggested.

I had a great experience during the YTT I took in November. Very well organized, teachers present all the time, responsiveness of teachers, diverse opinions and ways to explain things, well structured, a lot of training teaching, other professionals coming in for lectures, online material to do at your own pace + available for after the course, coverage of every aspect of yoga teaching.
Alicia Parra
The training was informative as well as interactive therefore I wasn’t bored not even for a minute. It kept me engaged into learning and even listening podcasts when at home. The anatomic part was all new to me but the most interesting. All in all it was a great experience where I’ve learnt about yoga and also about myself!! Thank you for the experience.
