About Rebecca Jo
Rebecca Jo began her yoga practice a decade ago in an effort of physical healing after experiencing trauma to her spine. She quickly understood that flexibility and strength were not simple matters of muscle and bone, but also a challenge to one's sensibilities - a shift in perception that lit the path to inevitable self-discovery.
Through the experience of pain, she learned about the healing potential of the human body and has since dedicated herself to sharing that understanding. With an emphasis on re-focusing energy, Rebecca Jo is able to help connect the emotional stresses of her students to their physical goals through breath meditations, conscious alignment based movement, somatics education and practices of presence. The physical body is used as a teaching tool and guide to understanding existence on a subtle level. Trained in Vinyasa Flow, Forrest Yoga, and Integrated Movement Therapies, Rebecca Jo continues her own study of human anatomy and movement, injury and trauma recovery, stress release, massage and natural healing in order to deepen her own understanding of the human experience.
As the eternal student herself, Rebecca Jo's practice has shifted and grown through her travels - from hosting private retreats in Thailand and Mexico, as well as pop-up events on New York City rooftops and workshops in Berlin. Each new place traveled inspires her to take on unique and exciting challenges in balance and strength, such as her recent innovative foray into stand up paddleboard yoga here in our beautiful Tulum.
