We create safe, trauma-informed yoga experiences that help you heal and thrive

Who We’ve Served

We’ve taught relaxing yoga experiences that promote self-care and curb burnout for nurses at Vanderbilt Hospital and counselors at The Atelier Inc.

We’ve provided restorative yoga experiences to support integration and healing at Gilda’s Club, Mending Hearts Inc. and Music City Interventions.

We’ve led Christ-centered yoga worship experiences for various church communities and during staff lunch breaks to support ministry leaders.

“Rebekah held a restorative yoga class for our counselor self care day and everyone absolutely loved the class. She was responsive to the sensitive nature of the trauma work our counselors do, and generously provided a safe space for them to express themselves. We can’t wait to have Rebekah back again!”

Meet Your Guide

Rebekah Smith

When a friend introduced me to yoga in 2009, I did not know how vital it would be to my personal transformation and healing journey.

Since becoming a certified instructor in 2013, I find great joy in supporting other survivors by facilitating safe, trauma-informed yoga experiences that increase connection, peace and healing.
