Having trained with several acclaimed international teachers – including Sri K Patthabi Jois, Hamish Hendry, Brian Cooper, Anna Wise, Nawajyoti and Anna Ashby – Rebecca teaches a strong and graceful Vinyasa flow, inspired by years of Ashtanga practise.
A dynamic and passionate yoga teacher. Her aim is to teach invigorating, energising, strengthening classes with a solid emphasis on breath and bandha control for proper posture and full benefit of poses. Focusing on intelligent alignment through breath work and mindful body awareness, Rebecca aims to empower and motivate her students, encouraging each individual practitioner to explore their own potential and strengthen the mind body connection.
The emphasis is on working through mental/physical patterns, so that healthy body/mind mechanics and relationship awareness of breath may be achieved. It is about what you can do, not what you can’t.
Beata (Bee) has been practicing Yoga since 1996. She completed her 200 hour accredited teacher training in Anusara Yoga, with internationally-renowned Bridget Woods-Kramer. She is also an Asthanga teacher, trained under the guidance of Isa Guitana, Patrycja Gawlinska, Eddie Stern and Gabriel Azoulay., to name just four out of many inspirational teachers who helped Bee on her teaching path.
This 23 year journey led Bee to understand the subtlety of yoga, and fuelled her passion for teaching with care and kindness. Having moved to London in 2014, Bee set up her own small yoga classes in London and California, which helped her to really connect with the essence of teaching. Bee’s students enjoy her non-judgemental teaching style and gentle attitude towards the practise. All of Bee’s classes are open level, and everyone, regardless of their yoga experience is welcomed in.
With her medical background and knowledge, Bee see’s yoga as holistic “curative therapy”, which is the perfect accompaniment to Western medical practise. Bee believes strongly that each student needs specialist support to get the most out of practice, and therefore she intuitively tailors her classes to the needs of her students on that particular day. By teaching with an emphasis on anatomy, Bee’s students learn to understand the true nature and grace of their body, and find that they can practise safely, reducing the risk of injury.
Bea teaches classes that are lively, challenging and dynamic, with an additional focus on breath-work. This allows her students to benefit from a fun, nurturing and calm environment and to experience a practice that heals and detoxifies the body and mind. Ultimately, Bee hopes that through her teaching, students will become empowered and embrace the opportunity to connect to their deeper self.
