Rebecca thompson | Aerial Yoga
Rebecca believes through mindful movement people can find more harmony, joy and peace. She began practicing yoga regularly in 2008 the day after she finished her Master’s Degree in Nursing. Initially drawn to the physical challenges Yoga provided, Rebecca truly found her practice 7 years ago after an injury. She turned toward a Yin inspired home practice and meditation to help heal her injury so she could slowly return to classes. She found that she was able to find more mental clarity and peace the more she practiced. In 2015 Rebecca dove deeper into her practice, completing her 200 hour YTT with Todd Norian in Ashaya Yoga. She used Yoga in her Private Psychiatry Practice to help people struggling with PTSD, Anxiety, Depression and other mental health conditions. Rebecca has a keen and practiced ability to assess individual needs, meeting her clients as they come to her. She completed her Aerial 1 YTT in 2018 with Lily Dougher after falling in love with the way Aerial Yoga inspires playfulness, freedom and FUN! Over time her daily practice has developed into free movement intertwined with pranayama - deeply inspired by yoga, functional movement, nature and intuitive creativity. Rebecca’s greatest strength is her ability to ignite passion for movement in a therapeutic and fun way!
