Yoga for Everybody

Family Yoga


This class is taught by:

Rebecca Hutchings

Rebecca teaches both adult and kid yoga. Her primary focus is vinyasa flow, with an emphasis on breath work and injury prevention. Rebecca guides her students through their practice with clear instructions, intelligent sequencing, and hands-on adjustments. She encourages her students to enjoy the physical challenges of yoga, play with personal limits, and find a quiet mind. Rebecca was born and raised in Berkeley, California. She discovered yoga while studying medicine in Manhattan, and has now been practicing for 20 years. In her travels she has been able to study Aryuvedic medicine, as well as yoga at Kasturba Medical College in Manipal, India. Although Rebecca practices traditional western medicine, she believes that adding alternative therapies can be quite beneficial for some of her patients. She completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training with Annie Carpenter's SmartFLOW school. Off the mat, Rebecca is a wife, the mother of two lively children, a dog lover, runner, and an Emergency Medicine physician.

Zoe Shipley

Zoe discovered yoga in the mid-90s at New York City’s Jivamutki (when it was just a little studio on Second Avenue). She appreciates the discipline of the Ashtanga method equally with the flow and acceptance of Vinyasa. She completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training at Shanti Yoga Shala (her home away from home). She is also a certified GroovyKids™ Yoga instructor. Zoe is passionate about helping better the lives of children in whatever way she can. She is a former classroom teacher and a current youth mindfulness educator at several public schools and private practices in New Orleans. She teaches valuable skills that promote self-esteem, empathy, emotional regulation, and learning to live happily in the present moment. She also wholeheartedly believes in the GroovyKids™ yoga method (similar to Vinyasa) and philosophy that “every kid is groovy” and there is no pressure to perform in yoga because...to play is to be free!
This class is for yogis age 5 and up.  The class is a balance between active dynamic movements and moments of stillness and mindfulness. Students will be exposed to traditional yoga poses, sun salutations, and some partner poses. Embrace your inner child!
Children should be accompanied by an adult.
