    REBECCA

    Classes taught at SPACE 2B:

    RESTORATIVE YOGA WITH SOUND BATH & THIRD EYE LIGHT

    Background:

    In every one of her classes, Rebecca creates a space where people can safely cultivate strength, openness and awareness.  An experienced teacher of Yoga, Meditation & Pilates, Rebecca connects with each client, encouraging them to explore their own unique practice. Her personal journey has shown her that a steady mindfulness practice is the most direct route to cultivating resilience and maintaining a real-life balance between effort and ease.

    An intuitive communicator, Rebecca teaches with plain language, humor and compassion to practitioners of all levels and life-walks.

    Originally from the USA, Rebecca moved to Singapore from Toronto.  She teaches a wide range of corporate, private and group clientele.

    “The basic act of slowing down & finding my breath is crucial to balancing my mind, body & spirit.  ‘Starting by stopping,’ even if it’s just for a minute or two, helps me to refocus.  When I can find the space between actions and emotions, I can distinguish what’s actually important from the constant noise of everyday life. That goes a long way.”

    Why I practice meditation:

    I am naturally a very fast-paced person & this means I can easily get caught up in thought patterns & behaviors that are counter-productive and sometimes downright destructive because of the resulting stress and anxiety.  I practice meditation as a way of slowing down, creating space between my thoughts.  It helps me stay calm and massively reduces my natural & behavioral inclination towards stress.

    Why I teach meditation:

    I teach meditation because I see a real need for the kind of stillness and slowing-down that it provides.  I see patterns similar to mine in so many other people & I know from experience how much this practice can help.  Especially people who are busy with their lives and their jobs – I love getting the chance to help them find space and calm when their world is anything but.

    What does “SPACE TO BE” look like to you?

    Space 2B is, for me, an exciting opportunity to join a community of facilitators who offer types of meditation and wellness practices to a population of clients who very much need these practices.  Wellness practices are increasingly important, and I’m excited to be in a space where this type of work is being done.

    What does “LIVE SIMPLY” mean to you?

    Living simply, for me, always comes back to the art of “starting by stopping.” Taking a pause to make a little buffer between oneself and one’s environment gives you the opportunity to listen and distill each moment into what’s really important.
