Yoga took root in Rebecca's life shortly after her move to Nashville, TN. She discovered that practicing yoga could leave her feeling physically and mentally refreshed and rejuvinated. Rebecca also realized the benefits of this practice extend much deeper than physical and mental, and discovered the profound spiritual blessings inherent to yoga. She fell completely in love and continued on a path to explore and expand her practice and knowledge of this wonderful way of life. After years of practice and filled with a strong desire to share the benefits of yoga with others, she completed her 230 Hr. Teacher Training at the Asheville Yoga Center in North Carolina under the guidance of Stephanie Keach and Shala Worsley. Rebecca is also a certified Yin Yoga teacher, implementing Yin Yoga practices into her Vinyasa and Restorative classes. She has completed an additional in-depth training in Vinyasa Flow, and is currently pursuing her 500 Hr. Teaching Certification.
Rebecca's teaching style is influenced by an eclectic blend of yoga traditions, including Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow, Yin, and Jivamukti Yoga. In her classes, students are inspired to create space, balance, and freedom in their bodies, minds, and spirits as well as tap into creativity and strength. Rebecca's yoga classes balance the range of physical intensity from dynamic to restorative, allowing all students to explore their own unique yoga practice. She encourages students to dive deeper into their practice by bringing their awareness inward and to the breath, listening to themselves to explore more deeply the connection to higher wisdom and bliss held within us all.
Rebecca is a graduate of the University of Tennessee with a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry, Cellular, and Molecular Biology. She is also an artist, focusing in oil painting. A student of both science and art, she loves to blend them both into her classes.
