rebeka ragan

Studio Manager, Instructor, RYT

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 to Rebeka’s friends and family 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.

In Rebeka’s class you can expect a dharma talk filled with imagery setting the tone to escape from reality while you flow, a corny joke or two, and lots of sweat from a challenging and thoughtful vinyasa designed for yogis new or advanced. 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 with a smile on her face.

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 numerous house plants.
