All our Speakers confirmed for this Conference
Rebeka, a Pittsburgh native, first discovered yoga in high school. She had joined the lacrosse team with all her friends and on the third day of practice; they took a yoga class as part of conditioning. Immediately after finishing conditioning that day, Rebeka quit the lacrosse team, bought a membership at a local yoga studio, and never looked back. One could say it was love at first flow, which came as no surprise considering her background in dance and gymnastics. Her love of yoga only continued to grow in parallel with the stress of earning her degree in engineering. Yoga taught her to the importance of “me time” and escaping from the hustle and bustle of life even if it’s only for a few minutes.
Rebeka always dreamed of one day sharing her passion and secret to keeping her sanity with others, but it wasn’t until she discovered The Om Lounge that she knew it was time. After raving about the thoughtful, challenging, and creative flow paired with a dharma talk she’ll never forget in her first Om Lounge class, she signed up for 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training graduating in May 2021.
Shortly after graduating, Rebeka’s love of organization landed her the role as Studio Manger. With experience in customer service, she is always happy to assist studio yogis with anything they need. In Rebeka’s class, you can expect lots of sweat from a challenging and thoughtful vinyasa designed for yogis new or advanced to help them escape from reality - and a corny joke or two. Rebeka loves to offer her students a challenge but reminds us all that you have to start somewhere. Just like life, Rebeka feels that your yoga practice is also a journey and looks forward to guiding you through it. Rebeka loves to share this sentiment with new teachers as well as she holds a position on the Yoga Teacher Training staff.
Off the mat, Rebeka works as a sales and solutions engineer for a production company. Rebeka prides herself on knowing about all the new restaurant openings and activities going on around the city, so don’t hesitate to ask her for a recommendation. When she’s not teaching, working, eating, or dancing at a concert, she enjoys spending time outside and tending to her many house plants.
