Rebecca Damia, E-RYT500, YACEP

Rebecca's journey with Yoga began in 1999 with a self study (svadhyaya) of classical yoga through the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the 8 Limb Path, breathing practices (pranayama), meditation (dhyana), and yoga postures (asana).  She became interested in Yoga as a teenager to help pacify anxiety & panic attacks.  Ayurveda found its way into her life in 2005 while on a mission towards a happier & healthier lifestyle.  Becoming fascinated by its healing properties, she has used Yoga & Ayurveda in her life helping her through many experiences ranging from anxiety as a teenager, eating disorders, and most recently cancer as an adult.
