FORM AND PHILOSOPHY
While most Yoga done in class is physical much of the practice is done to impact the mind and soul.
Allowing the practice to inform your life off the mat will be incredibly healing.
Rebecca focuses on helping people feel better physically and emotionally using a holistic approach. She combines Yoga, Pranayama (breath work), lifestyle changes and guided introspection to help create awareness and personal growth. Rebecca is a Registered Nurse, Yoga teacher, and Health Coach. Rebecca guides her clients to become their own healers by hearing and responding to the cues of their mind, body and soul.
Ever since she was a child, Rebecca knew she wanted to be a caregiver and help others attain, maintain and optimize their wellness. She does this utilizing gentle but dedicated lifestyle rituals and tools that foster a sense of self-love and nourishment of the mind body and soul.
Rebecca became a registered nurse in 2005. After 10 years of caring for patients in hospitals utilizing only western medicine, Rebecca began to search out other available methods.
She saw the benefits of Yoga in her own body and mind and became a Registered Yoga teacher in 2016. Through Yoga Rebecca was able to create systems for her clients to begin a journey of healing that was empowering to them so they can be responsible for their own healthcare choices. Rebecca trained in teaching Kids Yoga with Pretzel Kids in 2019. As of December 2020, Rebecca is an 800hr level 3 Yoga Teacher.
Rebecca is also a Reiki practitioner and utilizes her understanding of energetics to inform her healing practices and yoga. She became Reiki level 1 and 2 certified in October of 2016.
There are so many wonderful styles of Yoga. Rebecca teaches most of them depending on the needs of the students presented at the time. This can include a fast flow power vinyasa, form focused Hatha class with static holds, restorative or yin yoga to recover, or a gentle viniyoga flow.
Teaching Yoga is seeing the student and holding space for them where they are today physically, emotionally and energetically, honoring their light.
Erica T., Prenatal Yoga
Rebecca is an incredible advocate for physical and mental health and a true believer in the connection between mind and body.
Rebecca helped me through a difficult pregnancy, when acupuncture and physical therapy could only so much. I have never felt stronger and more aware of my capabilities of my body than when I am working with Rebecca.
Beyond her skills as an instructor, she is a wonderful listening ear who makes you feel heard, understood and valued.
Miriam B., Yoga and Self
I have had the privilege of practicing yoga with Rebecca for over two years now. During this time, Rebecca has supported my personal growth in every possible way. With her guidance, I have been able to flourish physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I have gained confidence in my inner wisdom and have not only learned to trust my intuition, but I have become more open to dig deeper and confront difficult things with patience and faith. Yoga with Rebecca is something that I look forward to every single week and have been so inspired and empowered that I am in the process of becoming a yoga teacher myself!
Marc N., Mindful Flow
Amazing energy, the first class I ever went to where everyone was truly able to go through their flow at their own pace while still having hands on attention and adjustments from the teacher. The size of the class allows it to be this way. Definitely going back!
