"THE FIRST ROLE OF THE TEACHER IS TO BE HUMBLE...THE CHARACTER, THE COURAGE, THE GRACE, AND THE MAGNITUDE OF A PERSON IS IN PRACTICING HUMILITY. ONE WHO CANNOT GO UNDER CAN NEVER GROW. THE FIRST POWER OF THE SEED IS TO GO UNDER, AND THEN GROW."

- Yogi Bhajan

the path begin & continuess

yoga and meditation first found me in a dusty used bookstore, when a book of such fell off the shelf and into my lap, quite literally. as a teenager there was always a sense that there was something bigger to this existence. there was never any suitable excuse, that our day to day superficial layer of existence was good enough for any of us. iit is an absolute dreamy wonder at how the practice of yoga made it's way ​to me​ in subtle webs and flows throughout my absolutely colored and often times tumultuous​ life.  yoga has always presented itself as a soft landing among the harsh challenges of existence.

in a humble effort to give reverence to my soul’s very own crash landing pad, I was blessed with a compass that brought me to venture into the life changing experience of  the 200-hour teacher certification program at Mount Madonna Institute in California. there really is nothing like learning the depths of yoga in the cocoon of ancient redwoods with a silent living saint to greet you, as you bow to your own surrendering.

 

i am a passionate spirit junkie, and to further compel my training on the mountain,​ i have been blessed with​ various yoga trainings and workshops in Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yoga for Veterans, ​Kids Yoga and more. each train has welcomed me even deeper through the layers of yoga.

after owning and managing a yoga studio in the Bay Area, CA, my own personal practice has navigated itself through the radiant world of Kundalini yoga. this ancient technology, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, combines the use of mantra, mudra, pranayama, and kriyas (or yoga sets) to create a beautiful dance of awareness and optimal mental, physical, and emotional health. yoga has never only been about the physical movements for me, but about finding the golden seat of my own soul.

 

as i am a creature of  multi-layered inspirations, my passion has become my life long motivation. I truly believe every person i meet  would benefit from ​the ancient practice​ of Kundalini Yoga​.

 

to  put my ​ten bodies where my mouth is, i am so humbled to teach Kundalini yoga classes and workshops in my community and beyond. i​ truly believe that it is our duty to elevate our own selves, to elevate the universal consciousness of this planet.

 

we do ​this through practice and divine grit. this is our spiritual activism. this is our duty. we must serve and feed our own divinity, to truly change the world.

"This wonderful woman knows how to hold space for an amazing class.I had never felt so integrated into a yoga class. I had never felt a connection with everyone in a class like we were all in this together, helping each other help ourselves. Everyone who participated agreed and we all stayed afterwards trying to comprehend the magic that had just happened. Rebecca is so so so knowledgable about what she teaches.

She embodies the teaching in and outside the studio. She's constantly adding to her studies of Kundalini by attending workshops, teacher trainings and attending classes by teachers who taught her. She instantly made us all feel so welcome, like we had known her for years. Such a genuine human being which to me is one of the most comforting attributes of a yoga teacher. I could go on and on about the benefits of the class, mentally, physically, spiritually...


The greatest thing about this class for me was meeting Rebecca. She quickly became a mentor to me and a friend I can always trust. This class and Rebecca's teachings became a launching point for my personal journey and I am forever grateful to have made so many honest, loving friends along the way. "

MONA MOON

I didn’t come up with this phrase, I read it somewhere else, but when I saw it, I recognized it as an apt description of my dear friend and teacher, Rebecca.  
 

I was fortunate enough to meet Rebecca during a rare local in-studio kundalini yoga class. That studio wasn’t open long, and I’m convinced that part of its raison d’etre was so that she and I would meet.

It was in her own gentle fusion-style yoga classes, suffused with the heavenly scent of essential oils, that I began to come home to myself. It was there, in savasana, that I “remembered” that it’s okay, and then later, even necessary, to love myself, and to take care of myself in ways that express that love, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

 

We get so busy with the details of our daily lives and events that it’s easy to forget that we ourselves are worthy of our love and attention, just like the other beloveds in our lives.

 

Through her friendship and through the classes she leads and facilitates, Rebecca provides a sacred space for us to explore, create and share aspects of ourselves that we otherwise might not feel safe putting out in the world.  Under her calm, igniting guidance, she inspires us to find and claim our place in the world with confidence and grace.
