Peter Roussel Yoga



For Peter Roussel (DOB 22.01.1975), Yoga is a method of self management and self understanding. It is a refinement of human awareness.



He believes that in practice we learn about the way we see ourselves and the world. Life’s changes demand we grow and learn. Working with the body can help us get ‘real’ about how we look at life and deal with challenges. The body shows us habits in the mind through aches and pains of the body. We can learn to ‘read the body’ and manage our physical and emotional characteristics.


A strong desire for independence and self governance was fuel for his practice when Peter was introduced to Astanga yoga in 1998. The descriptions of breathing, focus and movement captured his imagination and inspired him to enquire deeper into what yoga was and what it could bring him.


Observations of what happens when practice is consistent kept Peter engaged with self practice and professional development.


Expansion is possible beyond the realms of our current understanding. Yoga is a great set of tools to take us beyond ‘the way we think it is’. More than a decade of leaps of faith, following his passion around the world has shown Peter that there is more than our thoughts and feelings tell us is possible – on and off the mat.

Practice brings grace and opens us to the feeling that we can also be open to a little assistance.


Peter is skilled in how to manage limitations, avoid constraints and learn previously unfelt techniques using simple apparatus called props. These can be used simply as an aid to reduce the taxing stress that might lead to over working or bad habits, but they are also uniquely valuable as a teaching tool. Although Peters simple classes may seem basic, he offers a great deal of depth and detail in the essential practices of Hatha Yoga. Including study of body, breath and mind with practice of asana, pranayama and meditation.
