"THROUGH YOGA WE COME BACK TO OUR TRUE SELF, TO THE PRESENT MOMENT, TO CLARITY."
Diving deep inside oneself, discovering a sanctuary to heal the body and spirit, and balancing the scales of life; are the pillars of what Rebecca Loos channels through her yoga practice. Through various journeys and life experiences, she has found her own way of understanding this ancient discipline. For her, it is not just the art of performing asanas and how the body looks on the outside, it is mostly about the work that must be done within.
If one is to truly enjoy the benefits of yoga one must be disciplined and dedicated. Nothing changes over night, patience & letting go are key while embarking on a path of self-discovery. Through her yoga courses, she offers a gateway to a variety, finding balance and having a healthy non-judgemental attitude towards yourself and others. Inspired by the knowledge about the body we have today, she also focuses on balancing a healthy, active and mobile body which is challenged by the modern world. Her teaching encompasses healing both physically and mentally, meditating, breathing and finding contentment, evolving, to help us sail confidently through the ebs and flows of life.
Finding peace within while embracing kindness and self-love.

She completed her first teacher training in 2017 with Alexander Medin at Nosen, Norway.

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 some 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. After her second child in 2012, she delved deeper into yoga developing a regular Ashtanga practice. With each practice, Rebecca felt like she was returning to her roots – a little girl who got lost in her twenties, seduced by a fast-paced living tempo.
