I first discovered Yoga out in the stunning Canadian Rocky mountains in 2004.  A year later I returned to England and began attending both Hatha and Ashtanga classes so regularly, that before I knew it, not only was my practice improving, but also my life.  As I practised continuously, my attitude towards myself gained a warrior spirit and I began going for things I wouldn't have before, like changing my career; taking up new interests; and committing to my health and well being.  Yoga gives me energy, virtue, resilience and enables me to know me; a considered life.

 

I completed a Yoga Teachers Training course in 2017 through the School of Yoga, Friends of Yoga International.  I currently teach Hatha Yoga publicly and privately, Online and venues in Birmingham UK.   

 

My style of teaching is down to earth and personable.  I provide a safe environment and see Yoga as both physical and emotional therapy. I get to know all my students and their individual needs. I have an in-depth understanding of anatomy and physiology having trained in and qualified as a level 3 Personal Trainer.  I have a keen interest in the ever-evolving Yoga practice, always researching and exploring the effects of Yoga.  I provide guidance and direction as well as golden moments of silence giving you space to be, listen to your body and breathing. 

 

 

 

 

 

"Becky is a brilliant teacher.  In fact the best that I have been to.  Emphasis on breathing and her knowledge of anatomy and physiology is excellent.  Everyone is encouraged to go at their own pace" (Client Review LG 2017)

"Rebecca is the most positive and encouraging person I think I have ever met.  She is perfect for leading a class of novices as she always makes you feel good about yourself."  (Client Review BC 2017)

 

 

 

 

I continually grow and develop in my own practice and have been taught by some fantastic teachers along the way.  What I love about teaching Yoga is that I learn every day something new through my students.  There is a great sense of unspoken understanding within a class that everyone comes to their mat with their own lives outside of it.  But the time spent in the Yoga practice, during that dedicated time to yourself, connects you to a sense of what everyone else is feeling: invigorated, calm and blissed out!

I find these pictures really enjoyable to create; it's easy to lose myself in time! 

   "The very talented artist and yoga teacher, Becky, has just finished this piece of work. I commissioned.. She took my bad sketch and turned it into something beautiful.. If u have an idea might be worth asking her about it.. She's given this so much time and is reasonably priced!" (Client Review.  Commissioned Lotus piece 2018)
