I began practising meditation in 1983 and started going to weekly yoga classes with Swami Vedantananda and Swami Pragyamurti in London is 1989.  I trained to be a yoga teacher with Swami Vedantananda between 1996 and  2000.Upon qualification I left my work as an IP Litigation solicitor and legal skills trainer, and I have been teaching yoga full time since then. My teaching certificates are from the Bihar School of Yoga and British Wheel of Yoga and I am insured by the British Wheel of Yoga.

I am also an assessor and teacher trainer and have worked on yoga teacher training programmes in India, Portugal and the UK and for the Mandala Ashram in Wales. 

I have further specialist training for teaching antenatal yoga and postnatal yoga with Birthlight, and optimal foetal positioning with Jean Sutton. I trained with Fiona Agombar to teach yoga to people with ME and CFS and have completed a short course with Julie Friedburger for teaching yoga to people living with cancer. I have  also completed the Yoga for Healthy Backs teacher training.

I regularly attend training courses for teachers and yoga workshops to consolidate my learning and for my own benefit. I particularly enjoy exploring the scientific underpinning of the practice of yoga and am fascinated by modern pain science and how much of this relatively new knowledge in the western world can be applied to our practice of yoga for rehabilitation and recovery from injury and surgery. This year (2018) I am doing a one year Humanistic Yoga course with Pete Blackeby .

"I've been coming to Rebecca's yoga classes for many years now. She is an inspirational teacher with wise words but also a great sense of humour, which makes it a joy to attend her classes - a real breathing space in the midst of busy everyday life."
Kath Burgess
"Rebecca's experience and knowledge has given me the opportunity to learn yoga from the inside, to practice in a way that is completely individual and beneficial to me and my body as I experience it each day. I particularly like the growing understanding of myself and of yoga and feel that yoga is becoming part of my life, not just when I'm on my mat in class."
Mirriam Grace
"Yoga is so beneficial for me! Since I had a brain aneurysm my movement wasn't so good but with the help of Rebecca it has improved no end. I have been going for a few years now and it is both invigorating and relaxing. Long may it continue!"
