Becka empowers people to live their truth through the practise of yoga.Yoga can heal and transform lives. So many benefits of yoga happen when you step off the mat and take your mindfulness into your life. Come flow with me in Amsterdam….
My personal philosophy is Do yoga, Be yoga- meaning I believe people should not only practise yoga but become more yogic in life; by taking the lessons in yoga beyond the mat into the everyday. I believe that through the practise of yoga it’s possible to live a more peaceful, productive and ethical life. My teaching style is often playful and I believe that yoga should ultimately be an enjoyable experience. I’m currently based in Amsterdam where I offer private classes throughout the city.
I tailor my private classes to the student. If you are looking to improve your health and fitness I will create dynamic, movement classes for you. If you are looking for a deep sense of relaxation then I will create a delicious yin yoga class in which you’ll feel your worries melt away.
Yoga is a Journey…
I first discovered the joy of yoga ten years ago whilst conveniently living opposite a Bikram Yoga Centre. As a dancer I was seeking something that focused on mindfulness rather than competition. Since then my journey with yoga has been a love affair of moving from living in my mind to being more embodied and living in the present moment through movement and breath work.
In 2013 I qualified as a Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher (Yoga Alliance Certified) with Yoga London. In August 2014 I qualified as a Pre & Post Natal Yoga Teacher with appleyoga (Yoga Alliance Certified). In June 2019 I completed a 100 hour training Depth with Satu Yoga. This training covers Yin and Yang yoga and elements of Chinese medicine. This coming September (2019) I’m continuing my Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Yagoy in Amsterdam.
I look forward to seeing you on the mat soon.
