Help us build a school in Nepal

I recnetly started a series of Family Charity Yoga classes to raise funds for my friend Gavin McCormack’s project to build a school in Nepal. It was super exciting to see all my students there: the moms, the dads and the kids in one room. There was lots surprises and lots of chocolate brownies! All neighbours were invited to join.  A total 450$ was raised and donated at Cliveden thanks to the generosity of my students there.

The next one at Tanglin Park , raised 500$! Well done neighbours! Gavin has encountered lots of problems while building the school, and unless we collaborate it will not be finished by Christmas. If you want to donate directly you can do so here. If you want me to organise a Charity Family Yoga day in your condo please drop me a line.

My name is Rocio Minguez Sparrowe. I am an expat lady from Spain living in Singapore. After a long career in digital marketing I became a Wellness Profesional in October 2016.

“You are just doing your part to make the world a better place” (Said by my friend Laura. My fave American married to an Irishman).

I am Yoga Instructor, Sound Therapist and a mindfulness advocate, but I overall consider myself a Lifestyle Coach. I love helping my students understand the body mind connection and show them how that awareness can help with work issues, domestic issues, or everyday troubles and stress.

I’m also believe that beauty soothes the soul. I love to surround my life with beautiful things. That’s why I called this site Sparrowebites Lifestyle.

My mission is to help others live happier healthier lives.

I have a long career in digital marketing and even if I don’t work on it full time anymore, I thrive helping small business in their marketing strategies as a consultant. Teaching how navigate through the world of digital marketing and creating effective campaigns. Communication is one of my key skills, together with practicality, but at the same time design, creativity make me very happy. Be it in fashion, interiors ir crafts. I pour it all making hand woven tapestries to use as wall hangings.

In these days of digital everything you need to find that thing that really sucks you in the moment. To give your mind some quiet time and to connect with the now through your senses. Meditation comes in many shapes an forms and I would love to guide you find your thing. My favourite form of active meditation actually became the craft of weaving!

Improving your quality of life is about the little things of your every day, much more than the big things. I love to share what I learnt to be useful and also to entertain while at it. When I’m involved, there will always be with great doses of sense of humor!

I’m someone very passionate and creative in anything I do. Also an advocate of sustainability and contributing to a bigger cause.  I like to explore, to experiment and try new things constantly. I like to collect thoughts, knowledge, ideas. Also analyse them and write about them with my conclusions in my blog. My reflections are much nicer when they come out out of my head. As heavy as this can sound all I write is about practice

This is what I do now,  in the future, who knows 🙂
Following your passion doesn’t have mean just one thing.

Rocio is a wonderful yoga teacher – she has a way of blending lightness and the more reflective elements of yoga all in one. Her knowledge is strong is she has a way of helping students to get the most out of their practice. Highly recommend her!
