"We really enjoyed this class. This is what we were looking for from a prenatal type of class for the second time around, to feel more prepared and have some tools for mostly labour but also the last weeks of pregnancy. Rose did such a fantastic job of teaching this class.Everything was well explained and demonstrated. We feel more confident after this class with trying out the suggested pregnancy and labour techniques. She allowed for questions and gave detailed answers. Her calm and positive presence is a great addition to her class. Would highly recommend this to others."


"The class was recommended to me by my chiropractor. I'm glad I took it. The information was fantastic."


"We first heard about the Spinning Babies program through our midwife and we knew it was a program that we wanted to use in helping to prepare for the birth of our first child. We researched educators in our area and came across Rose - Marie and I'm so glad we did! Rose-Marie was not only available to answer and troubleshoot all of our questions but she worked with us to correct and refine each technique, ensuring we did each pose safely and correctly. The option to Zoom with her (especially in 2020) made us feel safe without compromising her personalized approach and attention. She is warm and friendly - and we felt at ease and felt in control and empowered after our session! Rose-Marie explained all of the principles in a detailed yet easy to understand method - without using too many technical or science terms! Highly recommend using not only the Spinning Babies program but going with a professional like Rose-Marie, it makes ALL the difference to ensure you are performing each technique properly. Thank you again for your expertise Rose-Marie!"

“Every week, I look forward to Rose's class. The way she teaches is so special. Her instructions are very clear, allowing you to work down to the tiny little muscles you never think about. The classes always have variety while maintaining an overarching theme. Her presence is calm and reassuring. She allows you to feel so comfortable. Being there for extra instructions but also giving you room to just be. She also gives the best head massages! Rose's class is the bright light in my day.”

"Rose has the sweetest voice and is the gentlest soul. Her classes welcome all levels and often involve an element of self care. You will build heat in Rose's classes, experience a deeper understanding of the poses with her clear cuing and unique lesson plans, and of course have fun! I always left Rose's classes feeling energized, empowered and nourished.”

“Rose has been teaching at the University for many years and continues to have the highest attendance numbers of all our yoga classes from term to term.  Her intuitive ability to offer her students a class that seems “made just for them” is unique and her calm voice and authentically caring energy comes through in both obvious and subtle ways.    Rose also continues to grow in her own teaching journey and practice, often attending new workshops and retreats which keeps her classes fresh, and both energizing and relaxing.  A class with Rose is like short retreat of its own and I look forward to it every week!”

“Rose's mindful yoga classes have given me new insight and understanding as to how my body moves, and how it should move. To slow down each movement, to isolate various muscles, to realize where they are initiated in the core: this is critical information that can help repair the body and build better habits for everyday activity. Rose is a very good instructor, and is so attentive to the individual needs of her students.”

"I could not be happier with our experience with Rose as our birth doula. After a traumatic birth experience that ended in an emergency section with our first child, I was hoping for a much more positive experience with the birth of our second child. I met Rose through attending her prenatal yoga classes and immediately loved her positive energy and how comfortable I felt around her. Rose helped me and my husband feel confident and prepared as my due date approached. Her unwavering physical and emotional support was incredibly helpful throughout the labour. Her calming presence allowed me to feel strong and safe during contractions and helped me to keep my focus throughout. I truly believe that her suggestions for position changes during the labour allowed our baby to descend into an ideal position for a smooth and uncomplicated birth. With Rose's support, I was able to have an unmedicated vbac that left me feeling incredibly strong and empowered. We cannot thank Rose enough for helping us through such an incredible life changing experience"

"I was determined to have an all natural birth with my second daughter, and I couldn't have done it without Rose.  Our meetings before helped us realize what was important during delivery.  During my labor, Rose helped me feel confident. She gave my husband and me helpful suggestions for coping.   We felt so comfortable sharing our daughters birth with her and were so happy that she was there to help us through every moment!  The postpartum visits made me feel like I was on vacation. I never had to leave my bed and got to enjoy extra special moments with my daughter knowing our house and meals were taken care of that day.  Rose, is a fantastic doula and I would recommend her to anyone!"
