Rebecca teaches a challenging class adaptable for all levels. She loves yoga because it brings the practitioner to that place of concentration and inner focus where the rest of the world disappears. Her classes are light-hearted, challenging and healing; a mindful series that integrates postures, breathing techniques and meditation. Her style is influenced most by Jivamukti, Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Integrative Yoga Therapy traditions. Being influenced by the widest ranges of the yoga spectrum gives her the tools to teach creative, challenging classes that incorporate all levels of asana (beginner to advanced) into a fun and safe practice.
