Black Rose Alignment


Black Rose Alignment was born from a desire to offer others the same benefit I found from yoga and massage, and from there it has branched out into sports therapy and finding ways to apply my knowledge to every walk of life!

At the age of 21 I was told by my physiotherapist that I have joint hypermobility and was advised to begin strength training as a way to maintain day-to-day functionality. I was lucky enough to fall in love with it, but I still had physical therapists telling me to give it all up because it “isn’t any good for your joints”.  They were well-meaning, lovely people but it showed a clear knowledge gap in the industry.  Having found yoga a few years prior and beginning to train as a
teacher, I decided to add sports therapy on top of that to hopefully be the plug in that gap for others.

Rachel will be offering 10 minute hand massages at The Scottish Yarn Festival.





Sandra is the founder of JUNELE, a small business that creates one-of-a-kind decor pieces.  Originally from Latvia, she moved to Scotland in 2014 with limited English language skills, learned, adapted and made it her home.  Sandra holds a Diploma in Interior design and a Degree in Textile Design, which she combines to bring her passion for sustainable and unique artwork to life.
At JUNELE, they believe that every person and space deserves to have decor that reflects their unique appeal.  To achieve this they work closely with customers to create bespoke pieces that suit their individual tastes and needs.  JUNELE also believe in making a positive impact on the environment by using industrial textile waste and turning it into something beautiful rather than throwing it away.
Decor pieces are made from 100% pre-consumer recycled yarn and mixed with plant-based glue, which means they can be recycled or composted after use.  They come in a variety of colours, designs, and sizes to suit any space or style.  When designed at scale, their pieces also have sound absorbent and low-index insulation properties.
At JUNELE, it’s not just about the final product, it’s about the whole journey.  It’s about communicating new attitudes and ideas through art and creating a positive impact on the environment.
