A letter from the Course creator to You…

Dear Yoga 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 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!
Simona Angotzi
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. Teachers were knowledgeable and with vast yoga related background. 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.
Kristina Domingo
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, since I know that other people are more into the "spiritual" part. Personally I liked this approach more and it made me want to learn more and more about human body and physical aspects of yoga. Since some people who are beginners have asked me to teach and practice with them, I would love to hear some more suggestions on flows which are adjusted to people who are not familiar to yoga at all. It's indeed way more tricky than with intermediates, already got that when practicing with the fam 😀 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! You're doing a great job and I admire your determination and the vibe your bringing to IslandYoga!
Madara Lielpetere
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.
