Yoga Alliance RYT 200 (Yoga)
Beccah discovered yoga at a young age from her aunt who was a yoga teacher. Before deciding to be a yoga teacher, she volunteered at a school in a slum in India. The children were restless, so Beccah involved the entire school in a morning practice of yoga before each day began, which did wonders for the kids’ attention spans. Her yoga style has a unique style of playful Vinyasa to open both heart and mind. Today, she continues to deepen her practice and has been amazed by the doors it has opened. Her ultimate passion is to intertwine her yoga community with volunteerism.
This retreat will take place in Kerala, India.
