I am so happy being able to join the in-studio lessons at Live Oak again. Nice small groups at a lovely location, with a personal touch.
Rebecca teaches both adult and kid yoga. Her primary focus is vinyasa flow, with an emphasis on breath work and injury prevention. Rebecca guides her students through their practice with clear instructions, intelligent sequencing, and hands-on adjustments. She encourages her students to enjoy the physical challenges of yoga, play with personal limits, and find a quiet mind. Rebecca was born and raised in Berkeley, California. She discovered yoga while studying medicine in Manhattan, and has now been practicing for 20 years. In her travels she has been able to study Aryuvedic medicine, as well as yoga at Kasturba Medical College in Manipal, India. Although Rebecca practices traditional western medicine, she believes that adding alternative therapies can be quite beneficial for some of her patients. She completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training with Annie Carpenter's SmartFLOW school, is a certified Kidding Around Yoga Instructor, and is currently working on completing her 500-hours advanced teacher training with Shanti Teacher Training school. Off the mat, Rebecca is a wife, the mother of two lively children, a dog lover, runner, and an Emergency Medicine physician.
