Study with me in Goa, India - Nov. 11th - Dec. 5th, 2016

I'm on the faculty of the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training of Sacred Fig Yoga in Goa, India. Here's some more information on the training:

The Sacred Fig 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training is a highly-intensive program designed to educate & inspire the next generation of world-class yoga leaders.  We firmly believe that the strongest attribute any yoga teacher possesses is themselves.  And so we emphasize things like personal development, confidence, and speech (and don’t worry, you’ll still learn kick-ass alignment, too.)  Our rigorous program is certified by The Yoga Alliance, but it’s so much more than that.  In fact, it’s one of the most comprehensive available today.  Our teacher trainings attract students of all levels, from literally all around the globe. The Sacred Fig Yoga Teacher Trainings produce confident, knowledgeable, articulate, and empowered yoga teachers.  Sign up here or Email rebecca@ketchumyoga.com with any questions.

Special Class + Live Music

March 6th, 2015 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. I'm teaching Yoga Soundcapes at Kula Yoga in TriBeCa  More info here and below.

Yoga Teacher Rebecca Ketchum + Dan Kurfirst on frame drums // Tom Chess on Oud + Ney flute 


Make space inside and out with a sweet night of percussive flow,  energizing rhythms and inspiring music from around the world. Rebecca, a resident Kula yoga teacher in Brooklyn, believes our bodies are an accumulation of past experiences/actions/emotions/thoughts and sees yoga as a way to re-pattern our bodies so they return to their inherent nature of balance. As she leads tonight's yoga practice, her voice and sequence will encourage you to cultivate a balance between these polarities to create steadiness and ease. Guiding the musical component of the journey is percussionist/composer/improviser Dan Kurfirst on frame drums, and multi-instrumentalist/improviser/composer virtuoso Tomchess on Oud and Ney flute. Dan's music reflects his upbringing amongst a diverse and eclectic community, which sparked an interest in music from all corners of the world. His playing incorporates aspects of middle eastern, west African and Indian music, while clearly rooted in the jazz and rock traditions he grew up with. Tom Chess has played and recorded with some of the heaviest players in the improvisational scene (Dewey Redman, Butch Morris, Pharoah Sanders, Drew Gress, Ronald Shannon Jackson), performs globally, on NPR and PBS, and has played on Grammy Nominated recordings. Join this trio for a deep sonic movement journey full of spirit and a harmonizing sweaty yoga flow.

Absolute Beginner Workshop

Come to my beginner (or curious yogi) workshop series either at Loom Yoga Center or Kula Yoga Project - Williamsburg. My dreams have come true (no exaggeration!) and life has allowed me to share my ideas about yoga with my community. This will be a workshop with room for questions and discussion about alignment, breathing, and the shift that yoga can bring to your life. Please join me. Tell your friends. Ask me any questions. All details are below for both workshop series.

After the workshop you'll feel confident going to group classes.
