Registered Yoga Therapist


I began practising yoga in the mid 1970’s.  I had been a keen player of many sports, and continually suffered pain after most games.  I knew I needed something more mindful, slow and calming.

At age 60,  I decided to do my first 200hr YTT.  In 2010, I attended a 10 day Yoga Therapy intensive.  The speciality of the teacher was helping people get out of pain.  From this pre-requisite course, I continued to study with her to complete my Yoga Therapy training in 2013. 

Today I teach Gentle Yoga combined with somatic movement, breath and sound

what people are saying about Rochelle Jolley

Loukia Pikis

I have known Rochelle for 3 years now. I have been to yoga therapy workshops as a yoga teacher before, but I find that the sessions that I have attended with Rochelle have taken me a step further. The sessions have helped me clarify how my body moves and to gain greater awareness through small subtle movements. They have also helped me to respect my body in a deeper level and to


I had an excruciating pain in my right arm when raising and extending it. The diagnosis was tennis elbow and after the weeks of very good physiotherapy I was still suffering albeit less but the pain had moved into my left arm as well. I have practiced yoga as a form of exercise for years and knew that Rochelle was a yoga therapist, so I made an appointment. On my first visit Rochelle took the time to fully understand my health history, my reason for being there and carefully observed my posture. Then followed a summer of weekly private lessons using stretching exercises, breath work, foam noodles, belts, balls, walls, blankets and pillows. On leaving the session I would always be given a sheet of targeted exercises to do at home. All the exercises were both restorative and gentle focusing on my whole body and not just where my pain was located. A year on I am pain free and still use the methods Rochelle taught me. Taking a class with Rochelle is like treating your body to a mini-spa break condensed into an hour. Yoga therapy with Rochelle resolved m tennis elbow and was beneficial to my body as whole.
