Becca discovered yoga in 2000, when she attended her first class with friends. She became fully immersed in her practice six years later, when symptoms of a nervous system disorder impacted her movement. The results were transformative, resulting in a dramatic and positive influence on her health and overall well-being. These personal changes inspired her to enroll in Mama Nirvana’s 200-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in 2011, under the guidance of Joshua Schumer and Ruth Anne Lundeberg. In 2019, Becca completed her 300-hour Advanced Yoga Studies in the Classical 8 limbed Path of Astanga Yoga with Beryl Bender Birch & Sheila Magalhaes of the Hard and The Soft Yoga Institute & Heartsong Yoga Center. Becca completed her 15-hour certification in Mindful Yoga for Trauma with Suzanne Manafort in 2017 and will begin the 100-hour MYT certification program in the fall of 2019. Becca is a certified Reiki I practitioner, holds a Bachelor’s of Science degree from Springfield College, and is a graduate of the New England School of Architectural Woodworking.
Becca’s classes focus on balancing the nervous system, developing body awareness, and exploring the depths of one’s own strength. She creates a light-hearted, peaceful, and supportive atmosphere, encouraging students to practice self-care, both on and off the mat.
