Rebecca currently works as a Yoga Teacher at a Treatment Center, in Westlake Village, called Alsana. She specializes in working with those who suffer from eating disorders, body image issues, anxiety, depression, and trauma. The purpose behind her teaching approach is to provide accessible tools that elicit relaxation and guide participants towards honoring their individual needs and managing everyday stressors.
Yoga has been integral part of Rebecca's own recovery and healing from an eating disorder. It initially provided a safe space for movement in a communal setting. Through her continued education, she has acquired tools for self-regulation which gives way for a more integrated state of mind and body.
