Rebecca Sandlin

I have been practicing yoga for 7 years and teaching for 5. I was a professional dancer for a number of

years and because of that in my classes I love to play with the idea of fusing a more fluid movement with

the poses. I believe in a yoga practice that challenges people to grow physically, mentally, and

spiritually. I believe that our bodies were created to move and therefore we should take the time to

experiment with our limitations and exceed past the boundaries that we give ourselves.
