A Great Spiritual and Physical Awakening

Rebecca’s 200hr TT program was perfectly balanced between yoga practice, yoga education, and the tools we need to send us on our way to teaching our own class. Her program had a wide variety of different educational methods from videos, guest speakers, and lots of practical and actual hands on teaching experience. It’s a great spiritual and physical awakening for anyone who has even the slightest interest in yoga. By the end of her training everyone from beginner to the most advanced practitioner will reap the benefits. Even if you don’t plan on teaching it’s a great way to find yourself and your inner yogi. I did (even though I wasn’t lost!) I am forever grateful to Rebecca for this life changing experience.

An Honor to Have Had a Mentor Like You

There aren’t enough words to explain my gratitude for all you did to prepare this course! The love and energy you put into guiding us. It is an honor to have had a mentor like you. Thank you for leading us through yoga practices, providing us with effective teaching skills, and introducing us to the wonderful elaborate world of yoga. Your fun, warming, and nurturing presence was a treat. I am excited for all I learned and continue to learn.

Gentle Teaching Style and Her Magnetic Sense of Humor

“I am the City of Pensacola’s staff attorney and police legal advisor. Last summer, I was 62, overweight and woefully out of shape. Friends talked me into trying Rebecca’s new yoga class after hours at the police department. I and my coworkers were immediately hooked. Her amazing skill at yoga, her gentle teaching style and her magnetic sense of humor created our little class of yoga devotees. Now, I am 63, much less overweight, flexible and balanced beyond my imagination of a year ago, and we miss her terribly. When she left Pensacola to join her wonderful husband, Josh, she handed us off to a local yoga center and, for myself, it has become a way of life I do not expect to change. It has made me reflect that one of life’s ironies is that we are usually unaware of having met someone who changes us indelibly until after they have gone.”

If You Are Looking For a Program That is Thoroughly Challenging, and Organized – This is an Excellent Choice

“The 200hr TT has been a huge ‘bucket list’ goal for me. Coming to Okinawa I thought I was going to need to postpone this even longer. Then I came across Rebecca Cohen’s program. After researching Rebecca’s credentials and the small classroom size environment, I could hardly wait to sign up. In fact, I may have been the first one to register as I counted the days until registration opened. Now having completed the course, I am sad that it is ending. Rebecca created a community of yogis who I will not soon forget. Throughout the course, Rebecca imparted her extensive knowledge of yoga philosophy, human anatomy, and class sequencing. I appreciate Rebecca’s high standards and expectations of all her students. The 200hr TT is just the beginning of my yoga journey, and I am so happy it began with her program. If you are looking for a program that is thoroughly challenging, and organized – this is an excellent choice.”

You Will Not Be Disappointed

“I came to Yoga Teacher Training because my own personal practice had plateaued and to take it further, I knew I had to do something different. So when I came to Okinawa and saw the advertisement for YTT, I knew it was a godsend because I could not believe there was an official YTT training in Okinawa. I couldn’t find one close by our last duty station. I checked out Rebecca’s website and what really caught my interest was her photo gallery of all her amazing advanced poses. I knew she could help me advance my practice. Rebecca is extremely knowledgeable about yoga. She has been practicing for a long time and it is obvious once she starts speaking about it. She exudes a true love for it. She has been a good teacher helping me advance my own practice and giving me the encouragement to begin teaching yoga myself. If you have the opportunity to learn from Rebecca, jump on in; you will not be disappointed. She has a lot to offer. I have never met a yoga teacher more knowledgeable or experienced.”

I Learned So Much About Not Just Yoga But About Myself Too

“I initially wanted to take my training in Bali. I had everything planned out for when getting out of the service, I would spend my terminal leave in paradise. Then I heard about Rebecca’s training and a lot of people kept saying I should take it now so I can start teaching. The more I people tell me how good the training is and how Rebecca is the Yoga guru in Okinawa, I didn’t think twice and dumped the Bali retreat. I am so glad I jumped into the course because I learned so much about not just yoga but about myself too. Rebecca made it easy and fun to learn about the mental and physical part of yoga. If I am still on the island when she starts YTT 300 HR, I will definitely be signing up for it without hesitation. Thank you, Rebecca, for such a wonderful experience!”

Cannot Put Into Words...

“I came to the 200hr Teacher Training to find a way to “fix” my anxiety and panic issues. I did not fix them, rather I transformed my mind to be able to accept them. I cannot put into words exactly how yoga training changed by life, but it did, in fact, save my life! I am beyond grateful to have had the opportunity to take the TT and to learn so much from Rebecca and Rewa. They ignited something in me that will never go away. Thank you for this training and sharing your knowledge.

I Experienced Profound Self-Discovery in Both My Mind and Body

“Rebecca Cohen’s 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training transformed my life. I didn’t realize what I was getting myself into when I signed up; I just liked how I felt after taking yoga classes at the gym and wanted to learn enough to do it on my own. I got what I bargained for, plus so much more! I experienced profound self-discovery in both my mind and body. This program opened my eyes to an entire world I never knew I was looking for, and I’m thrilled to continue to explore and expand the knowledge and skills that I gained through yoga teacher training.”

Highly Recommend Her Classes or Private Lesson

“I recently suffered a herniated L5 S1 disc in my back. Physical therapy has done wonders. Though I still was not feeling as I did before the injury. Rebecca has custom-tailored workouts for me & I feel great after I am done. I have lifted weights as well for about the last 12 years but her workouts have found muscles I never knew I had. I definitely have a new outlook & appreciation for yoga. I would highly recommend her classes or private lesson she really knows her stuff.

Rebecca Knows Her Stuff…WOW!

“To be blunt: I was a little apprehensive that this type massage would do anything for me because of the tightness I have from lifting weights for so long without real stretching. Thai massage: Rebecca knows her stuff…WOW! I can see this will pay dividends integrated into my yoga class and weight training regimen.”

Incredibly Blessed to Have Been Able to Learn From Her

“Rebecca has taught me so much about my body through yoga therapy sessions and group classes. Once I found her as a teacher she transformed how I practiced and inspired me to explore greater education in the science of yoga. She is a huge inspiration in my life, seriously. I feel incredibly blessed to have been able to learn from her. I highly recommend getting to know Rebecca; she is super cool, passionate, ridiculously knowledgeable, talented and beautifully kind. I am bummed she is not in my neighborhood anymore… PLEASE be good to yourself and have a session!”

Fun, Challenging, Dynamic and Suitable for All Levels of Yoga Students

“I attended almost every class that Rebecca taught at the Monterey Yoga Shala from February until July 2011. Her inspiring teaching style, extensive knowledge of yoga postures, her positive and encouraging attitude contributed to classes being fun, challenging, dynamic and suitable for all levels of yoga students. I improved in strength and flexibility, alignment and balance and learned to breathe properly during practice. You only need to come to her class and from that point on Rebecca will spread her yoga magic over you.

A Tremendous Impact on My Yoga Practice

“Rebecca awakened an appreciation of yoga flow in me that has been dormant for many years. I found her precise instruction and wisdom to be priceless in guiding me through challenging sequences of asana that have intimidated me in the past. She helped me to modify poses to suit my needs and encouraged me to follow my own intuition and pace. I enjoyed her classes as well as her delightful presence and sense of humor. Studying with Rebecca, if only for a few months, has had a tremendous impact on my yoga practice.”

Knowledgeable, Professional, Positive and Helpful

“We have been working with Rebecca on yoga and realignment exercises for posture and have noticed a real improvement in a relatively short period of time. Practicing with Rebecca has been time efficient, effective and convenient. She is knowledgeable, professional, positive and helpful, and we highly recommend working with her either via classes or individual lessons. Rebecca’s knowledge of muscle anatomy and physiology and many yoga postures helped us become stronger and more flexible.”

A First-Class Instructor

“My wife and I first met Rebecca while she was a fellow student in our advanced Ashtanga class in San Diego. After watching her practice, it was obvious that she was no stranger to yoga. Upon learning she was a yoga instructor, we managed to talk her into teaching a class that had recently lost its teacher. Selfish reasons – but, let me tell you, did it pay off! Rebecca is not only a first-class instructor, but a wonderful person as well, and it was our pleasure to practice and learn with her over the next two years.”

Best Overall Experience of a Massage Ever

“The best overall experience of a massage ever. Rebecca takes the time to listen and guide you through the session. The active massage allowed my muscle to release and breath. Felt like a million dollars and had a sound sleep that night. Will be going back to Rebecca. Thanks.”
