Class Description:
Whether you are an avid cyclist, golfer, skier, or enjoy snuggling up on the couch, this class will help you enjoy the quality in your life. The Yoga for Life class is a series that works the entire body, especially back strengthening. This class will help you regain and maintain your freedom in movement so that you can continue to enjoy all the activities that you love to do off of the yoga mat. It is a beginning yoga series that is suitable for all levels, health conditions and ages. (Note: this class does not involve weight bearing on the hands and can be practiced by many who suffer from injuries). The sequence of poses is done in a specific order to realign the body, especially the spine. Every pose is done to the best of one’s ability, and as you advance, you apply yourself even deeper into the mastery of self and by doing so we reach the union of body, mind and spirit.
Rebecca Rankin:
Upon graduating from the University of Michigan with a degree in architecture, Rebecca moved to San Francisco to pursue a new career in the design field. It was 2003 in San Francisco where she began her hatha yoga practice. She found a new passion; a passion for her own self awareness and self-realization. This commenced her journey; transforming her life of design into a life of healing and helping others. Since completing her 500+ Hour Ghosh Lineage Yoga teacher training course in 2006, she continued to study other styles of yoga including Vinyasa Flow, Yin Yoga, Buti Yoga and Hot Pyro Pilates. She is forever grateful and honored to have also been mentored by the world renown yoga teacher, Mary Jarvis. Rebecca approaches both teaching and her own practice with compassion, passion, and dedication. She is known for her encouraging and optimistic style of teaching that incorporates both the physical and mental aspects of a yoga practice. Her positive attitude on and off the yoga mat is contagious. Rebecca has had the opportunity to travel and share her passion throughout the United States, as well as Europe and Central America leading retreats and co-leading teacher trainings. Her dedication to her practice has helped her to place 1st in the PA Regional Asana Cup ’11/12 & 13/14, 7th in the USA National Asana Cup ’11/12, 10th in the International Bishnu Ghosh Asana Cup ’09/10, and 1st in The Netherlands Asana Cup ’09/10. The Asana Sport Championship is an opportunity she uses to motivate herself in her personal practice as well as inspire others to seek the best in themselves. Rebecca was also the founder and organizer of the Pittsburgh Yoga Expo.
After owning and operating her own yoga studio in Pittsburgh, PA for 7 years, Rebecca recently made the tough decision to sell her studio and move closer to family to raise her family here in Bellaire, Michigan. She practiced yoga throughout her pregnancies up until she gave birth. She credits all the time on her yoga mat to having enjoyable pregnancies and being able to stay focused and in the present moment with her 2 year old daughter and newborn son.
