Rebecca is an E-RYT® 200, RYT® 500, YACEP® Yoga Alliance certified Yoga & Meditation teacher. She teaches with authenticity and listens to her students while always giving them a safe space to follow their own yoga journey.
Rebecca was born in Madrid to a Dutch/Swiss father and an English/Spanish mother. Because of her cultural roots and life experiences, she speaks fluent English, Norwegian, and Spanish as well as Dutch and French.
Her first encounter with yoga was in London in her 20s. She quickly fell in love with it since moving her body has always been her passion. However, in the beginning, yoga was a way to stretch and relax after a full run or gym workout. She moved to Norway in 2009 five months pregnant with her first child swapping her high heels for hiking boots and falling madly in love with Norway´s breathtaking Nature.
After her second child in 2012, she delved deeper into yoga developing a regular Ashtanga practice and discovering all the many hidden layers of yoga. With each practice, Rebecca felt like she was returning to her roots, her true self.
In 2017 she decided to take her first yoga teacher training course and went on to open a small yoga studio in Hemsedal where she lived. She managed the studio and taught as well as working part-time as a medical assistant. Life was busy but wonderful. In 2020 she fulfilled another of her passions to become a massage therapist.
Balancing, Learning, and Evolving
In 2022 Rebecca sold the yoga studio and embarked on a life as an independent yoga/meditation teacher. Helping people to move & breathe better, feel better, and live better is her absolute passion and she feels blessed to be able to work doing what she loves. As for her students, they get to feel her contagious great energy, laughter, and positive vibe in her classes.
