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.

PHILOSOPHY
Our greatest challenge: to align with what is. Jacob seeks to prescribe an embodied philosophy - philosophy not of the mere intellect, but an integrated, non-dualistic living wisdom. To this end, his classes are thoughtful in form and content, designed to move and expand you whilst sweating out the New York nonsense.

PHILOSOPHY
"life is a balance of holding on and letting go." Rumi.
I strive to give good yoga - a balance of strong asana, breathing and a mind that is truly present and engaged. Each sequence is unique - a juicy blend of yoga (vinyasa/ashtanga) and movement of all kinds. In class, we strive to tap in to the most Pure version of ourselves so that we can connect to one intention.
