BIO

Rebecca “Yogarina Heartfly” Blake
(¯`’·.¸(♥)¸.·’´¯)

Do you have enough LOVE in your life? Connection? Breath? Joy?

Through teaching thousands of yoga classes to babies 3-weeks old up to seniors in their late 80’s; wealthy & homeless; healthy & sick, I’ve witnessed and remembered that we all came HERe to love and to breathe, and everything else is secondary.

Yoga classes & workshops with US (YOU and I = ONE) are uplifting, inspirational, explorative & loving. WE’ll go deeper than the asanas (poses) to ignite our inner bliss.

I’ve enjoyed a multitude of intensive studies, including Ballet & other forms of Dance, Tai Chi, Yoga (adult, kids, pre/postnatal), Pilates, Infant Massage, Theta Healing, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Reiki, Psychoneurology & Life on Earth.

I enjoy and feel blessed to teach in Bay Area corporations, schools, libraries, a hotel, senior centers, parks, streets, and anywhere it makes sense …or doesn’t.  ;-)

Specific styles of Yoga studies have been in Hatha, Iyengar, Vinyasa, Jivamukti, Ashtanga, Anusara, Bhakti, Kundalini, Power, Restorative, Yoga Therapy, Yoga Nidra, Naam Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation, Tibetan Heart Yoga, Five Rings Movement Psychology, AcroYoga, Partner Yoga, Kids Yoga, Baby Yoga & Pre/Postnatal Yoga.

Please check out my varying workshops and classes & come join the fun. Enjoy it on the earth & indoors, in tribal circles & in solitude, and as a way of life. I’ll love to connect, explore & experience joy with YOU!
