Rebecca began practicing yoga in 1998 for physical fitness, she soon discovered the more valuable results of practice -- mental steadiness and improved health.
Through the practice of yoga, she learned to follow her intentions and forge her own path forward -- despite distractions, pain, and disappointments that occur along the way. Ultimately, she found peace and awareness in the asanas, breath, and meditation.
Inspired by this dramatic change, Rebecca decided to share yoga with others and completed her 200 hour certification and registered with Yoga Alliance. She continues to further her education through advanced trainings with David Swenson, Kino MacGregor, and Andrew Eppler.
Rebecca’s teaching style builds a balance of strength, flexibility, and peace of mind in a way that is challenging, yet safe and accessible for all students. Rebecca has the same goal for her students, to find a practice that suits their individual path. She believes that yoga is for every person and every body type -- regardless of physical limitations, flexibility, or experience.
First and foremost, her focus is on ahimsa (known as do no harm) or simply stated: being kind to yourself and others.
With this in mind, she encourages students to meet their individual challenges (physical and/or mental) with compassion and courage.
