Would you like to explore Rosen Method Bodywork or attend Yoga classes?

Rosen Method Bodywork is hands-on touch by the practitioner that connects physical tension with emotional holding. The subtle touch allows your body to go into a deep state of relaxation, letting go of tension that may have been there for years and helps to regulate the nervous system.

An original form of somatic work which addresses physical tension and through its unique form of sensitive touch and verbal communication helps people to become aware of what they are holding – physically and emotionally – in their body. When the body is allowed to reveal its truth in a space of non-judgement, it can relax and let go of stress and pain. Rosen Method helps individuals to soften the barriers in their life so that they can live more fully, and the natural feelings of “embodied being” can become a source of joy.

Rosen Method is still relatively unknown and you may wish to find out more. Please see the Rosen Method websites at the Rosen Institute and Rosen Method UK. Also please do not hesitate to contact me and I will happily send you more information without any pressure to book a session.

If you would like to book a session with me in Nottingham in my garden therapy room please message me, using the Contact details on the contact page.

About image
My name is Karen Sands and I live in Nottingham. As I entered my fifties, following 10 months travelling the world with my husband, my career as a senior manager in social care and housing was beginning to feel 'just not me'.  After experiencing Rosen Method Bodywork, I began to make some changes to my life which has led me to set up my business offering Rosen Method Sessions and Yoga Classes.

After receiving my first Rosen session in 2018 I was amazed by the insight and the transformation the session gave me. After many more sessions and an understanding of myself that I had never known before, I found I wanted to know more and so started to train as a Practitioner in the autumn of 2019. I reached the requirements for the Internship Programme in May 2023. This allows me to practise (charging a reduced rate) with the support and supervision of the Rosen Method UK School.

I have practised yoga, on and off, all of my life but only seriously in the last 10 years. I completed my Yoga Alliance 200 Teacher qualification in July 2023 at Breathing Space Yoga Studio, Derby. Studying yoga philosophy and yoga humanities has enriched my life and deepened my practice and my understanding of myself.

I also completed further study with the Yoga Alliance accredited Trauma Informed Yoga (20hrs) in October 2023 and Yoga Nidra (40hrs) with Melanie Cooper in December at Breathing Space Yoga Studio, Derby. This has equipped me with knowledge and skills to plan and practice a way of teaching yoga that is sensitive and supportive,allowing those who have experienced trauma to benefit from the wonders of yoga and faciitate restorative relaxtion through Nidra.
