Rebekah Jacobs is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance. She completed Anusara Teacher Training Levels 1 and 2 and is looking forward to additional philosophy immersions soon. Additional trainings include "Yoga for Two: The Barnes Method" Prenatal, "Om Shree Om: Anusara Yoga for Kids" and a Pilates Mat certificate from Physical Mind, NYC. She studies with Certified Anusara Instructors Ross Rayburn, Zhenja LaRosa, Bernadette Birney, Sianna Sherman, Todd Norian and John Friend.
She particularly enjoys teaching privates including mother/daughter, kids, teens and couples. Rebekah believes that yoga invites us to reconnect with our highest self and each other; that it has the power to heal from the inside out. Through breath and conscious movement, we can let go of fear, anger, hurt and blame and move toward empowerment, forgiveness, fullness, and innate happiness. Yoga can be a powerful gateway to build confidence, reconnect with our dreams and find our inner light. She is grateful for the opportunity to work with you.

Rebekah grew up in Fairfield County and is thrilled to join Julie and the Pryority Fitness Team. Rebekah is also currently the Manager of The Yoga Loft at Bedford Post Inn and welcomes you to her class! She took her first yoga class while performing on the road with a Broadway show and has been hooked ever since. Her performance travels brought her to 49 states, 20 European countries and 18 Caribbean Islands. Rebekah happily traded her suitcase for the transformative, adventurous journey of yoga. She believes that the power to heal physically and emotionally can begin with one breath and last a lifetime. Her classes range from vigorous accompanied by modern music to restorative guided by candlelight.
In her free time, Rebekah loves to breathe in the sea air, read bits of every book on her shelf and write poetry at unexpected moments. She also loves to drive her new convertible car and dance with her niece.
