Becca fell in love with the practice of yoga as she discovered the therapeutic and meditative foundations of linking movement and breath while healing a back injury in early 2000. Over the years, she has studied with a diversity of teachers that have informed and inspired her teaching and practice, including Hart Lazer, Annie Carpenter, Jessica Robertson and Sarah Powers.

Rebecca is an avid environmentalist dedicated to integrating holistic sustainability principles into her yoga teaching and practice. She is a sustainability expert and a charter member of the consulting co-operative Sustainability Solutions Group. She also co-founded the charity, Junglekeepers, dedicated to protecting the most biodiverse part of the Amazon rainforest in the Madre de Dios region in Peru. Rebecca is also an award-winning cellist, vocalist, and composer who has performed and recorded with a wide range of artists including Patti Smith, Nick Cave, Lhasa de Sela, Tanya Tagaq and Vic Chesnutt. She is a founder of the music groups Saltland and Esmerine, and a member of the kirtan music collective Lila. She is currently co-curating with Jesse Paris Smith, Pathway To Paris, a call to action event series that brings together artists and climate change experts to raise consciousness around climate change leading up to the UN Conference on Climate Change in December 2015.
