About Rebecca Ketchum - E-RYT 500
Drawn to yoga's non-competitive and healing nature, Rebecca sees yoga as a practice of nonjudgemental self-observance using breath, space, and body awareness as a guide. Her work is influenced by Katy Bowman, Nikki Villela, Genny Kapuler, Jillian Turecki-Baer, Nevine Michaan, Thomas Myers, Pina Bausch, and Amy Matthews.
Group Classes: Structured around sthira (steadiness) and sukha (ease), Rebecca's mindfully aligned vinyasa classes include elements of her extensive background in Iyengar, Ashtanga, dance, and Kundalini. Her classes are known to leave students full of new information yet clear-headed, light yet grounded, strong yet nimble. She teaches group classes at all three locations of KULA YOGA PROJECT in NYC.
Therapeutics and Privates: Rebecca helps create and maintain holistic health and wellness programs along with a team of physical & manual therapists, and acupuncturists at Kima Center for Physiotherapy and Wellness. She also works with private clients to help them live a more peaceful, pain-free life through therapeutic yoga in their homes or in her studio in Brooklyn.
Teacher Trainings: She is on the YTT faculty at House of Jai Yoga, Kula Yoga Project, Loom Yoga Center, Sacred Fig, and Crane Yoga School. Sharing what continually intrigues her about this complex practice with others nurtures and sustains her. She loves nothing more than guiding others to become graceful, intelligent, and humble teachers. She travels around the world leading retreats and workshops on anything from the spine to inversions to pranayama. Keep an eye on her Events and Retreats page for upcoming retreats and workshops.
