Roos started practicing Yoga at Delight Yoga in 2018. And it has almost been a daily part of her life ever since. In the beginning, she mostly practised Astanga Led, but at the moment Roos is mostly focused on Hatha and Vinyasa.
When Rosa was 20 years old she attended her first yoga class, which put her whole life in a new perspective. During her studies in psychology she felt chronically stressed, unfulfilled and confused about the path she had chosen. Her first steps on the spiritual path offered her a newfound desire to spread the principles and practice of yoga in the world.
