My name is Rebekah Smith. My goal is to create a new mindset around what yoga is and who yoga is for, as well as to introduce Yoga Therapy as a tool for my community. I became a 200-hour Kula yoga teacher in 2016 and started teaching right after at three different studios her on the North Fork of Long Island. I soon after started working with clients one-on-one, and at a private elementary school teaching yoga and mindfulness. This sparked my interest in creating classes focused on an individual’s or group’s specific needs. From this idea and some exploration I found KIYT (Kripalu Integrative Yoga Therapy). In February 2019 I became certified as a 300-hour Advanced Teacher or Yoga Therapy. I am going to continue furthering my education until I reach 800-hours and become a 1,000-hour yoga teacher. My vision is that yoga will be accessible to all people and know no boundaries.
