Rebecca Bartuska first started yoga as a way to keep dance in her life. After dancing through college, the thought of giving it up entirely was terrifying. It wasn’t until the summer of 2014, doing teacher training at Zen Den in Margate, NJ, that she realized yoga was so much more than just a replacement for dance. Meditation and pranayama calmed thoughts, asanas instilled confidence and yamas and niyamas provided a way to evaluate one’s values on and off of the mat. Through yoga, she has grown tremendously as a person and she hopes to share that with her students. Through assisted poses and modifications, she believes each student can achieve the same bliss. With strong Iyengar influences instilled in her through her mentors, Rebecca’s style of teaching focuses on flowing through poses while building towards a peak pose. Proper alignment and meditation are stressed in all of Rebecca’s classes. Meet Rebecca during these upcoming classes.
Having lived in several places and practiced yoga in many studios since 2000, Brooke Weinert has always found her place on the mat, and is now so grateful to be at home in Bucks County, PA.
In 2012, she completed a 200 hour vinyasa flow teacher training as a means to re-boot her personal practice. Along the way, she discovered greater self-acceptance and the joy of teaching!
Yoga has brought her focus, strength and confidence, benefits that Brooke would like to share with as many others as possible. With a strong hatha yoga base and additional training in Restorative Yoga, Brooke stresses proper form, as well as honoring one’s body and limitations. Meet Brooke during these upcoming classes.
