REBECCA

As a teen I struggled with self-aversion. My spirit pulled me through the worst of times. Through much hard work, along with the support of those who walked with me, body-image became a place of neutrality and ultimately acceptance. I appreciate my body for all that it allows me to do.

Rebecca currently works as a yoga therapist for Alsana. She specializes in working with those who suffer from addictions - in particular eating disorders, body image issues, and for those who live with anxiety, depression, and trauma. The purpose behind her teaching approach is to provide accessible tools that elicit relaxation and guide participants towards honoring their individual needs and managing everyday stressors.

Yoga has been integral part of Rebecca's own recovery and healing from an eating disorder. It initially provided a safe space for movement in a communal setting. Through her continued education, she has acquired tools for self-regulation which gives way for a more integrated state of mind and body.

I enjoy introducing yoga and mindfulness to young children and offering self-soothing techniques to adolescence and adults. I consider myself to be authentic, thoughtful, and nurturing.
