As a teacher passionate about honouring yoga as a wider practice beyond asana (posture) Rebecca's focus is on helping people find peace and strength through movement, meditation, and yogic philosphy.
With a foundation in Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga and training in India and the UK, Rebecca teaches a range of classes including vinyasa flow, restorative yoga and various meditation styles including yoga nidra and trataka (candle gazing). She is currently studying Sanskrit and Classical Tantra.
Rebecca began teaching yoga in 2014, founded her first studio in 2017 and in 2019 scaled-up and invited other talented local teachers to join her teaching team.
Alongside running the studio and teaching, Rebecca works with her partner Tom, a goldsmith, at his jewellery store and workshop, Thomas William Jewellery, which can also be found at Holme Grange Craft Village - pop in and say hi!
When shes not working, teaching and studying Rebecca loves being out in the woods, long walks in the wild, and hanging out at home with Tom and their cat Alfred.
"Good for the body is the work of the body,
good for the soul the work of the soul,
and good for either the work of the other."
Henry David Thoreau
ABOUT SARVANGA YOGA
The Sanskrit word Sarvanga is made up of two parts "Sarva" meaning all or whole and "Anga" meaning limbs or body. Altogether it can be taken to mean All Limbs or Whole Body and reflects the holistic nature of yoga and the ethos of the studio.
Yoga works in so many ways for so many people that I feel it is a self-treatment that we should all have the chance to learn. It is something we can grab with both hands and adapt throughout our lives. Yoga changes with us and enables us to change for the better. To know ourselves better enables us to take control, to improve, to treat ourselves well. We do not need to master yoga to enjoy the rewards, we need only open ourselves to exploring it.
At Sarvanga Yoga I am always working to create and maintain a safe space which allows for the deeply personal journey of a yoga practice to be guided with care to the student, community and with respect to the ancient linage of that which is yoga.
This is a place for learning and for personal and spiritual development, and the teachers and practioners I ask to join me in working from this space are committed to maintaining this for you.
