Rebecca lives in Washington Heights and finds great spiritual inspiration in Fort Tryon Park, which reminds her of the calming scenery she grew up with in upstate New York. She has practiced yoga for 18 years and she also practices tai chi in the playground near Fort Tryon Park with a fantastic local teacher, and Theravadan Buddhist meditation. These modalities bring a range of Eastern spiritual principles into her yoga instruction to offer a compassionate, rejuvenating practice tailored to the individual that heals from the inside out—and which is ideally practiced in an invigorating and inspiring outdoor setting.
Rebecca received 200-hour certification to teach yoga from The New York Open Center and has continued her study of yoga as a therapeutic practice for mind-body-spirit with Amy Weintraub (yoga for depression), Dr. Jeff Migdow (chakra healing and the nervous system), and master teachers who use breath-centered principles inspired by viniyoga (Lilias Folan, Leslie Kaminoff, Nadiya Nottingham, and Charles Matkin).
Rebecca is also a reiki healer who treats animals as well as people, and she uses reiki energy healing techniques in yoga classes as well as offering individual sessions. She teaches group classes occasionally, including annually at the Frost Valley Women’s Wellness retreat, and primarily teaches privately in uptown and midtown Manhattan.

The YIP Initiative is a small collective of young Yoga Teachers and Yoga enthusiasts intent on bringing the practice outdoors and accessible to anyone regardless of age, race, and income status. YIP hosts weekend Yoga classes in Fort Tryon Park-NYC during the warmer months of April thru October. The open level park classes are held every Sunday at 10:30 am and are taught by a rotation of volunteer certified Yoga Teachers. YIP strives to foster a sense of community that is often lacking in our busy City, so after each class we invite you to stick around and meet your fellow neighboor, picnic, relax and enjoy the outdoormanship.
