Roanna Harstad: Free Soul Yoga

Roanna Harstad: Free Soul Yoga

Roanna Harstad.

peace seeker.


I'm a ask to many questions'er, a yer but what if I did'er, I'm a show me the evidence yogi, a dust away other's sand prints and make your own path kind of women.

I'm a vegan, t-total senior yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance UK. I've dug enough holes and built enough ladders to know my business very well.

I know people, I love people. I know yoga, I love yoga. Not just the sugar covered bliss bits, the parts of the yoga path's that really ask you to dig deep, to ultimately teach you to lose yourself and find yourself in a new way.

I'm interested in showing up, you and me, and just gifting enough time to ourselves to explore, to create to get inspired.

After 12 years of doing just that all I can say is that there is always another chapter, another sequel to your prequel. I know stuff, I know myself and I continue to be dedicated to sharing real life yoga philosophy, yoga practices and together living a full and peaceful yoga inspired life both on and off the mat ego free. 

Ro: "I have built Free Soul Yoga on the principle of Dana, which means the act of giving, and Seva, the devotion to service. I welcome you just as you are, you don;t need to be in the right mindset, wait to lose those extra pounds or wait until you have the time... now is the right time, now is the perfect place for you to be with yourself, for yourself, in honour of yourself... everything else will come."

That began a love affair that's only grown deeper. compelled by her passion and curiosity, Ro has trained around the world with masters in personal development, asana, meditation, pranayama, shamanic studies, energy work, and her training as a level-five Thai Massage Trainer and practitioner. Ro is inspired by many areas including the practices of restorative Yin Yoga, Acro yoga and Ashtanga. She is a Yoga Alliance UK Senior teacher and trainer offering retreats, training and business mentoring.

Ro’s life long dedication is to inspire others to step into their power and create deep and long lasting healing experiences. Roanna is a genuine yoga practitioner, a devoted Yoga teacher and healer with a huge range of experience and insights.

With a background in personal empowerment through leading Firewalks, retreats, physiotherapy and body therapeutics, Ro’s approach to yoga is one that honours the need for individual self study with the aim of improving inner strength and taking positive action towards stepping into our power.

Teaching yoga in a wide range of environments from schools in Chang Mai to 5 star retreat venues internationally. By combing personal empowerment tools, asana, meditation and pranyama, Ro provides an opportunity to explore the Spiritual through the Physical. Ro works to bring the study of yoga off the mat and into the practice of Life. 

"Yoga is a way to focus within, and by doing so expand our awareness, bringing increased responsibility to live in alignment with the planet in which we walk. We must walk sensitively and powerfully through our lives and using the practice of all 8 paths of yoga doing so in love and with responsibility.” Watch our video below of some of our feedback
