Testimonials from previous Teacher Trainings

MEET THE INSTRUCTORS

Rebecka Cooper

I was 16 years old living the first time I walked into a yoga class. In was in that first class that I knew that I wanted to be a yoga instructor. As life goes I lost track of that desire and had become active with rock climbing (mostly bouldering). A day came when I had a serious fall, breaking both of my ankles! I was bound to either crawl, be carried, or a wheelchair for 3 months. That fall brought me to Salt Lake City, where I met a local yoga instructor – he reminded me of my forgotten passion and desire to become an instructor.

I have since been teaching in the Salt Lake City area. There are many things that I love about yoga, one being that anybody can do it and that “the actual practice of yoga takes each person in a different direction.” Through intentional breath and conscious movement, head, heart, and body can move as one, and come into union. When in union with oneself, true authentic expression can be found.

When not in a yoga studio I am often out climbing up some rocks (I still think climbing is a blast and adds to my yoga practice), oil painting, or riding my motorcycle around town in bright red cowboy boots.

I’m 500E-RYT. In 2010 I received my 500hr certificate from Dana Baptisite. In 2012, a 200hr from Peter Francyk. In 2013, a 500hr with Charlotte Bell and Peter Francyk. In 2014, advanced teacher training with Ana Forrest. In 2015 I studied with Seane Corn, a 5-day training. I have also had the blessing to attend workshops with knowledgeable yogis and I have every intention to keep adding to my training.
