"Rebecca has given me an entirely new direction in the hamster wheel of exercise! For years, I loved running but with increased age came back and knee issues. I had tried sporadic yoga classes, but found them so advanced and I was always left wondering if I was doing the postures correctly... Rebecca always takes injuries into account and will suggest modifications. She is detail-oriented, taking time to explain each position and make corrections. She is not only well-versed in anatomy and physiology, but in the philosophy and history of yoga, as well… Rebecca has given me the gift of a lifetime of yoga practice!" —Susan, RN Case Manager, age 55
