Rebekah Gunn, RYT 500
Rebekah felt that her body practiced yoga long before her mind knew what it was doing. It was the stretching she did in between sets of weightlifting reps. But it was more than just stretching. Without conscious effort, her body found its way into various asanas (poses) that she later learned had names. Rebekah still remembers taking her first “real” yoga class. It was at once familiar and different, soothing and exhilarating. She felt like she was unlocking parts of herself that she hadn’t gotten to know before.
Over a decade later, she still experiences the same sensations whether it’s an expression of an asana she’s never tried before or an asana she has practiced thousands of times.
Naturally, Rebekah wanted to share this love of the practice with others. Even after completing 200-hour training programs with both Dharma Richards (Yoga Garden, Apex, NC) and Lila Rasa Brown (Abundant Heart Yoga Teacher Training) and a 500-hour with Dharma Richards (Yoga Garden, Apex, NC), Rebekah feels like she's only beginning to scratch the surface of her studies of yoga.
With over 500 hours of teaching, Rebekah seeks to create an engaging, encouraging, nonthreatening environment that helps students explore what yoga means to them. She employs her knowledge of alignment principles to help students find safe, pain free avenues to a sustainable, ever-deepening asana practice.
