Certified Yoga Instructor. Rebekah is a registered yoga teacher (RYT-200) through Purple Yoga, and completed her Yoga for Athletes Certification through Maximum Performance Yoga.
Rebekah started practicing during her senior year of high school, when her self confidence was at an all-time low. She was depressed and spending her time and energy on drugs and alcohol. But then a friend introduced her to yoga, and she loved it – it was challenging and fun, and left her feeling refreshed and clear. She loved how grounded it made her feel, and having a practice gave her purpose. What started out as a single class turned into a life long journey for her, and she decided to become a teacher to share that purpose with others.
Rebekah loves teaching because it’s a way to give back to the community. She wants to help people realize the same confidence and peace she found through her own practice. “I’ve found comfort in my body and mind, and all it takes is a little guidance in the practice to really start feeling the benefits physically and mentally.”
In her spare time, Rebekah attends as many workshops as possible, ranging from rigorous arm balancing clinics to deep relaxation yin workshops. When she isn’t practicing yoga, Rebekah can be seen biking around Long Beach and petting neighborhood cats.
