In 2017, my Father was diagnosed with stage three Pancreatic Cancer, which soon progressed to his lungs. After six months of diagnosis, he passed away dying at age 62.

At the time I was studying to be a Paramedic, a high pressure, high-stress job, which I’m certain would be rewarding in many ways. I yearned to be responsible and I also wanted to help people who are suffering, I hoped to be a light in others darkest days. I was doing very well at my studies, but I was very stressed out and uncertain if it was the right career path for me.

 My Father had advised me to stop studying and rather follow my dreams of teaching Yoga. “You are a spiritual Yoga Teacher, Manisha Rose”, he would tell me. “Go after your dreams.” I’d lost hope, and he appeared to be the one who truly supported my real passion; which is, and always has been; Yoga.

When Dad died. Something big shifted within me. I decided at that point that I didn’t want to live the rest of my life not having joy every single day in whatever I was doing. I quit studying and returned to the profession of Yoga.

I felt inspired to one day be able to create an amazing space, my own Yoga Business where people can come and practise with me, feeling safe, held and connected. I knew this was still a pathway where I could be a light for others in times of darkness, only through something that is more significant to me, through something that’s actually been there for me in my own darkest moments. Through the practice of Yoga. 

Yoga has always been something I turn to in dark times, whether it be through my meditation practice, discovering yogic philosophy, attending a strong vinyasa class or connecting with other like-minded souls at events or workshops. I want to share my knowledge and passion for Yoga with others so that they can also utilise this healing modality in their own times of need.

My Father also loved his three children and his boat. He named his boat, “Jade Rose”, after my Sister and I’s Middle names. I wanted to carry on his legacy via something that’s meaningful to me.

Jade Rose Yoga is about experiencing joy daily, having courage and mostly; following your dreams.
