With a deep compassion for her spiritual practice and community, Rebekah’s classes are vibrant and playful, giving students the opportunity to push their limits and discover possibilities. She strives to make every yoga class unique and individual on a physical, mental and emotional level. Her classes carry the energy of vinyasa flow, while emphasizing the principles of functional body alignment. In her personal life, whether Rebekah is chasing after her little muse, diving into laughter with a friend, exploring possibilities on her own mat, reading, listening to music or perfecting the art of “meditation driving” in LA, she always looks for an opportunity to find balance and a way to connect with her environment. She believes all things in life create an opportunity to express our authenticity, and she strives to explore this reality with her students. A forever student of yoga, Rebekah has studied with a wide variety of teachers. When asked what style of yoga she teaches, her response is “Pirate Yoga, I keep what I like and ditch the rest”.
