At ZURA, we take pride in the skill and nurturing style of our teachers. While each teacher has unique gifts to bring to leading the practice of hot yoga or any of our many movement classes, they share a common goal: to make the class accessible for all – from the new student to the experienced practitioner. Our teachers focus on proper alignment and injury prevention while helping students realize the amazing benefits that can come with moving the body with intention and awareness.
Rebecca joined the Be Evolution community as a student ten years ago and has been teaching Fusion and Hot 26 classes for the last five years. She has a performance background in dance, theater and music and it is from her core foundation in yoga, athletic movement and dance that her vision for ZURA developed. From the beginning, Rebecca was eager to build a studio where experienced yoga practitioners and those new to yoga could explore and celebrate their yoga practice while complementing it with other movement modalities. In realizing this vision, Rebecca has assembled a strong group of yoga teachers, dance teachers and movement/strengthening specialists. She has also welcomed renowned artist, Siona Benjamin, into the ZURA home. It is Siona’s stunning mandalas, goddesses and other works that grace many of the studio walls. Rebecca and her husband, Bob (also co-owner of ZURA), raised their two children in Montclair where they lived for twenty years before moving to their current home in Verona.
