Rebekah R

I can’t actually remember my first yoga class. In many ways yoga has always been a part of my life; sometimes more present than many other important aspects of life.

In college I took a yoga class to satisfy my physical education credits. Primarily because it was familiar to me and didn’t require much effort. At the time, I discovered it seemed to help with snowboarding, which mattered most. Learning how to regulate my breath turned out to be incredibly useful when flying down mountains at full speed. It eliminated the fear factor and helped me to push myself in ways I hadn’t before; the experience was liberating.

After college yoga took a backseat, right next to my snowboard, as I began to passionately explore the world of holistic health. Enrolling in a holistic nutrition school in New York, where the many faces of alternative health were presented to me, I discovered the importance of loving ones self and loving what it is that we do in this world.

Yoga soon returned to my life, shortly after moving to Los Angeles. I found a group of yogis that gathered together 6 days a week to practice. Under the guidance of our teacher, we moved through 3 hours of pranayama, asana and meditation before moving into our day. That was the true beginning.

I can honestly say that I was afraid to commit to the practice fully--essentially one day teaching myself. I understood the importance of living a life that embraced my passions, but I was unable leave the safety net of my salary. But that’s one of the most incredible things about this practice; the more I dove into it, the more I began to let go and embrace more of what I want in my life.

This journey has taught me how important it is to believe in yourself and follow your passion. I want to instill confidence in my students, help them find the strength to believe in themselves as my mentors and fellow yogis have for me. My yoga community continues to foster my growth, while inspiring me to be better and do better daily. My hope is to do the same for you.
