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.

He developed his unique, distinctive style of yoga by integrating work from amazing teachers he's had both on the mat and off. Over the years he has cultivated a wealth of knowledge on building a better system through mind, body and breath awareness.
