Rebecca's classes provide a safe healing space where students can learn to be still and unravel stress, trauma and chaos; a space where we tap into the sweetness of our authenticity and let go of the many layers and stories of the past. Her classes are well-suited for all levels of experience and ideal for those seeking comfort and ease in stillness. A yoga practice can be very physical, but it doesn't always need to be. Many of us already have very active, stressful and demanding lives - Rebecca's classes allow time and space to cultivate balance by exploring the softer, deeper, more subtle layers of the self.

Hatha and Yin classes with Rebecca are very mellow, a blend of slow movement, long-held postures, breath awareness & deep relaxation - often with the gong being played during savasana.

Restorative classes have minimal postures for maximum relaxation. Rebecca likes to keep these classes as simple and quiet as possible in order to allow students to decompress, release & restore.

Rebecca also teaches Yoga Nidra classes and has two CDs of this guided relaxation and meditation that can supplement your home practice. Please email RebeccaMoonDesigns at to order Yoga Nidra CDs.

Kundalini classes with Rebecca lean toward a more gentle physical practice and a longer meditation. With her roots in hatha yoga, she is skilled in offering modifications and encourages safety and compassion for the body.

Rebecca is dedicated to helping people be more comfortable in their minds and bodies through yoga. She also makes unique and custom malas and gemstone jewelry, again, please email for information.

A teacher for everyone

Rebecca is a teacher who truly embodies the fact that yoga is for everyone. She not only asks if anyone has issues they are dealing with but she listens and helps the student adjust their practice to suit their needs. Her focus is on gentle and effective yoga, especially yin and deep relaxation. As a yoga teacher myself, I prefer to take her classes as not only do I get an amazing experience, but I learn so much every single time. The smiling faces at the end of her classes say it all.

Rebecca Risher is an ABSOLUTELY SUPERB yoga teacher

I know it sounds cliche, but I can't really find the words to capture both Rebecca's unique teaching style and the hugely positive impact her teaching has had on my life both on and off the mat. You see, with Rebecca, it is all very seamless and integrated. She doesn't talk a lot yet at the same time she imparts so much. Her classes are both completely body focused and completely spiritual.

I guess her gift in a nutshell, is that she is a master at using the tools of yoga - breath, asana, and mantra and meditation- in a way that allows her student to find the door in - to find that space in your heart where you can begin to connect with your authentic self and begin to live your authentic life. I know, big promises for a yoga class, but then we are talking about Rebecca!!
