Bec discovered Yoga while living in tropical North Queensland. What started as going along to a class with a friend for some exercise quickly turned into a practice that became part of her regular self-care. Bec was used to wearing ‘busy’ as a badge of honour, and stress was a normal part of her day. She fell in love with how calming and healing Yoga was. It was like Yoga was the permission slip Bec was waiting for to get back to basics – the mind, body & breath.
Bec enrolled in Teacher Training initially to delve deeper into her own practice, but felt called to share the teachings and help others like Yoga had helped her. She began teaching as soon as she graduated and has since delved into leading classes, Workshops and Beginner Yoga Courses. Bec continues to expand on her own knowledge and experience through trainings, her Teachers and Mentorships to provide the most transformational experience for her students possible.
Never having been naturally gifted with flexibility or coordination, Bec is passionate about holding space for her students to show up on the mat, as they are, without judgement. She invites her students to go beyond just the physical and practice in a way that serves them. Her Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga classes are the perfect way to unwind, relax and rest from the busyness of everyday life.
“This was a fantastic Yoga class. I thoroughly enjoyed it and Rebecca has a lovely soothing voice” – Jenny Garby
