Rebekah Lakshmi was led to Hatha yoga in 2003 in search of a quieter mind. In the summer of 2010 she moved to the Sivananda Ashram in Grass Valley, CA where she served her Guru, Swami Sitaramananda, and taught traditional Hatha yoga and meditation, over the next 10 months. Upon leaving the ashram she settled back in her roots of the Pacific Northwest where she taught and studied Restorative and Vinyasa yoga. Lakshmi moved to Vermont in the spring of 2012; it was then she began to recognize her calling in the therapeutic yoga realm. Lakshmi now specializes in meditation and yoga for both teen and adult Eating Disorders, Addiction, and mood imbalances. Lakshmi is in the process of becoming a rostered psychotherapist in the state of Vermont, using witness consciousness and somatic meditation to move through protective systems and fear. In each of Lakshmi’s classes or individual sessions, she emphasizes breath-based movement from within the subtle body; through instruction in rooting, core integration and energetic expansion. Meditative and investigative stillness, along with slow, steady, rhythmic Vinyasa awaken us to breath, body, the inherent web of love, and our own essential emptiness. Lakshmi is founder and lead instructor of Lunar Flow Restorative Teacher Trainings, and a lead instructor with Liberate School of Yoga.
