Rebecca Steele

Rebecca believes that yoga should be accessible to all, completely personal, and in a safe and inclusive environment. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to feeling better physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
She meets each client exactly where they are and becomes an advocate for their whole-body health through her vast knowledge and genuine connection. Her approach is to empower each individual on their wellness journey by building a “toolbox” of poses, movements, and breathing techniques to seamlessly weave into every lifestyle. Her practice is focused on using the body as a gateway to the mind.

Rebecca has been practicing yoga since 2005 and teaching since 2012. She began her career as a Yoga Therapist in 2013 after being drawn to the field due to her personal experiences with Rheumatoid Arthritis, anxiety and mental health conditions in her family. She holds a certification as a Certified Yoga Therapist with The International Association of Yoga Therapists, E-RYT500 with Yoga Alliance and has recently added Thai Yoga Bodywork to her services. She has worked with clients of all ages, abilities, and conditions but is particularly passionate about mental health, trauma and autoimmune conditions.

Outside of yoga, you can find Rebecca chasing her 3 spirited kiddos (and growing number of furbabies), cooking for friends or relaxing with a good/trashy novel.
