After many years of studying and performing ballet and modern dance, the gift of yoga provided a natural transition to stay strong, creatively curious, and mentally disciplined minus the stress of competition. She began her teacher training at the Iyengar Institute in San Francisco, but was sidelined by a back injury that had its roots in years of dancing. Yoga was the cornerstone of her recovery, not only on a physical level, but through years of careful loving care from teachers who helped her to overcome her fears about reinjuring her back, realign her body from years of compensating, and regain confidence. Rebecca received her teaching certification through YogaWorks at Yoga Source, Richmond, VA in 2003. Her primary instructors there were Sandra Pleasants and Jennifer Elliot. Additional certification includes training to teach yoga to people with Multiple Sclerosis. Most recently she has obtained the necessary skills to teach Yin Yoga. She continues to study hatha yoga in Afton, VA with Sandra Pleasants and yin yoga with Biff Mithoefer. Her teaching is informed by many streams of interest including dance, an ongoing study of physiology and anatomy, and a sense of humor.
