beccaBecca Klein will begin teaching Thursday nights in Hampden. 7:45 - 9 pm, a regular drop in class. Classes will begin after the New Year!

Becca finds yoga to be an ideal medium to engage the mind and body in discovering and honoring one's truest Self.  For over 10 years she has been studying many styles of yoga. She took her first Anusara Yoga class with Moses Brown in 2005 and was hooked. She was drawn to Anusara Yoga's life-affirming Tantric philosophy of intrinsic goodness and the clear instruction and alignment principles it offers to cultivate a radical shift toward knowing and expressing oneself fully. After completing some other life-goals (a 4-month trip through South America and a Masters degree in Food Policy), and settling into Baltimore, she completed the Teacher Training Program at Willow Street Yoga. Becca's classes focus on being present and authentic on the yoga mat in order to do the same in life-and, most importantly, having fun while doing so!
