  • An introduction to mindfulness
  • Beginning yoga postures and movement
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Ways to be more present in your body
  • How Yoga & Mindfulness can benefit you on and off the yoga mat

We are happy to offer a couple of scholarship spots in this workshop for those who are in financial need.  Please contact Kyra Marino, RCY studio owner, to learn more about this at Kyra@Revolution.Yoga.

Rebecca Minor has trained in the art of movement for two decades: an exploration that developed through the converging practices of theater, social work, and yoga. After graduating from college with a double major in theater and psychology, Minor went on to a fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital to study the effects of eating disorders. Through this period Minor came to recognize the empowerment yoga gave her to harness the fluctuations of her mind and its capacity to provide her with tools that extended into life off the mat. This was only deepened while attending Boston University where Minor obtained a Masters in Social Work and a certificate in the treatment of trauma and dissociation. Her inspiration to share these tools with others manifested in her work with clients who were able to become present in their bodies, opening them to greater opportunities for healing. Now, as a practicing clinical social worker and certified yoga instructor (Revolution Community Yoga [RYT 200]), Minor seeks to teach from a place of authenticity, non-judgement, and compassion centered philosophy. With her specialization in trauma’s effects on the body, gender, and sexuality, Rebecca’s practices are grounding, foster safety, and are trauma informed. Movement matters, for your most unapologetically authentic self lies within it.
