TEACHER | CO-FOUNDER
Rebecca is a co-owner and founder of The Yoga Lab. She began formal yoga studies in 1992.
She has been pursuing this path with extensive studies in Ashtanga vinyasa and Iyengar Yoga. This has led her to study with such teachers as K. Pattabhi Jois, Richard Freeman, Tim Miller, Gabriel Halpern, John Friend and Sianna Sherman.
Her enthusiasm for Ashtanga Yoga took her to India to study with K. Pattabhi Jois and Mr. B.N.S. Iyengar in 2001. In November of 2003, Rebecca completed Richard Freeman’s advanced teacher training.
Having practiced massage therapy for fourteen years she utilizes her bodywork experience by giving individualized, hands-on adjustments, and precise verbal cues. Rebecca brings Iyengar alignment principles to the rhythm of the vinyasa practice in a safe, dynamic and creative class environment.
She has taught yoga across the United States beginning in Bend, Oregon, continuing in San Francisco, Boulder, Colorado, Chicago and Portland, ME and has now returned home to teach in Bend, OR. For several years in Bend she has been involved in developing training programs and mentoring new teachers, leading workshops, as well as international yoga retreats.
Rebecca teaches Level 2 Vinyasa on Mondays and Thursdays at 12:00PM and Fridays at 9:30AM, Level 2/3 Vinyasa on Wednesdays 5:30PM, and Soulful Flow on Sundays 4:30PM.
