Rebecca moved from Virginia to St. Louis in 2011 to attend graduate school. Although she had a consistent yoga practice before the move, the dynamic St. Louis yoga community enhanced her practice and sustained her through 5 rigorous years of graduate school. To round out her first decade of yoga, she wanted to deepen her practice, and so she initiated her 200-hour YTT in July 2015. Her teacher training experience motivated her to share her passion for yoga with others. Rebecca enjoys learning about the philosophy and psychology behind yoga and Buddhism, as well as pushing herself on her mat.
Rebecca celebrated two graduations in 2016: receiving her 200-hour YTT certificate, as well as her Ph.D. in molecular genetics & genomics. She is now working locally as a Data Scientist and is excited to join the community at Metro Power Yoga as a teacher in 2017!
