Yoga Class Descriptions

build strength, mobility and resilience in body, mind and spirit

Rocha Wellness - Group Yoga

Gentle Strength 

Gentle Strength yoga classes are designed to build strength and increase mobility in a very gentle way.   The practice includes floor based, sitting and standing exercises combined with gentle stretching and relaxation with the use of props such as blocks, blankets, dowels, and bolsters.

Slow & Strong

Slow & Strong yoga classes are designed to build strength and increase mobility progressively through slow, mindful movement.   The practice includes floor based, sitting and standing exercises sequenced to help the practitioner build body and movement awareness, while using body weight and props to gradually increase strength.

Slow & Strong is suitable for all level practitioners.

Stretch & Restore

Restorative yoga is designed to help you relax and restore. This class is perfect for the practitioner who wants to carve out time in their schedule for purposeful relaxation and stillness.

Suitable for all levels – no experience is required. Each class ends with a guided meditation.


I just want to tell you that this morning’s class was awesome. Truly. The reading you chose actually brought a tear to my eye. I wish I had recorded it 



Karen is a true partner in the healing of my body, my mind & my spirit. I am so grateful for her loving, gentle guidance.


Karen Rocha is the person you want in your life if your goal is healing and overall wellness. As someone who is recovering from breast cancer treatment, I found my sessions with Karen to be my favourite part of the week.


She is an excellent listener and goes to great lengths to understand what it is that I need. Using her fascia training, she guided me gently and purposefully to a place of better mobility and self awareness. Even though the experience was entirely new to me, she made me feel almost immediately comfortable with her approach. I always left her feeling better than when I arrived.


I liked her philosophy of “pain doesn’t serve you”. Karen never wanted me to feel discomfort, so she would adjust any movement or stretch to stay within a pain-free zone. For someone in recovery mode, this was definitely welcomed. Karen taught me how even very small movements can net great results.


She has an ability to truly listen and customized each session based on how I was feeling. Whether you are in excellent shape, or struggling to get to a better place, I strongly believe that sessions with Karen can benefit you. There was nothing but positivity in my experience with Karen and I highly recommend working with her.
