About Me

I started practicing yoga nine years ago after a cancer diagnosis.  A friend invited me to a class at Easton Yoga in Pennsylvania, USA, and it was love at first breath!  I didn’t know what to expect and was willing to try anything that could help me destress and heal.  I was amazed at what I learned and walked away with in the process.

I started to notice how through my continuous practice on the mat, the changes resonated off the mat.  My body became more flexible, my mind clearer, my heart more open, and my health and vitality soared. I had a healthy baby girl in 2013, and am now a mommy. I am a graduate of Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!) and have a BS is in Marketing Management.  I am Level 2 Reiki certified, a Graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and completed my 200 hour yoga teacher certification at Easton Yoga in 2015. I began teaching community classes and then moved to Zug, Switzerland where I started BYouYoga. I taught both group and private classes during my time in Switzerland and then relocated back to Easton to continue my teaching journey.  During COVID – I completed my 300 hr Yoga Teacher Training with Brett Larkin and her Uplifted Community.  I have taken workshops on yoga/horsemanship, breath, Ayurveda, and read countless books on holistic approaches to healing and functional medicine. I have continued my education and also completed online teacher trainings including Sadie Nardini’s HIIT yoga and Seane Corn’s the Yoga of Awakening.
I am excited to share one of my passions with you: Use less, LOVE more…Be whole!

Testimonials

Becky recognizes the importance of developing not only the mind, but also the body and soul, in making long-lasting life changes. During the 6 weeks I worked with her, she was my #1 cheerleader, encouraging me to focus on my own growth and fine-tune various areas of my life to achieve maximum happiness and life satisfaction. She helped me clarify my goals and developed a tailored coaching plan that took into account my specific challenges, circumstances and objectives.

Becky weaves together practical tools and techniques with good humor, wisdom, and a gift for perceptive insights. I loved working with her and recommend her as a coach who will support you, challenge you and guide you – from your first tentative steps all the way to the finish line.

I was a yoga beginner when I booked private classes with Becky, since she left Switzerland I signed up for the online classes. I thought it would be difficult to practice properly with an online teacher, but Becky is so intuitive. She paces the flows and positions so perfectly, which allows for proper breathing through the different positions and it feels totally natural. Her yoga experience and her ‘sixth sense’ creates a nice symbiosis of breath and focus in the right moment. At the right moment in the position when I run the “risk” of doing what I shouldn’t be doing, here comes a reminder comment from Becky to focus on the right feeling and body rhythm. This expertise, coupled with Becky’s humor and wonderful persona, are a great mix that make me look forward to the weekly yoga with her, and also make me practice regularly during the week (using the recorded session). I particularly love the structure, having a topic for class and Becky’s explanations, which help you better understand the power of yoga.

I wanted everyone to know how pleased I am with Becky’s yoga classes. I felt cared for. The classes were so about where I am with my body & mind. How to bring their harmony together. Becky asked questions about my week & where I felt needed the most love & understanding. I came away feeling cared for, refreshed & relaxed.
Love Becky & all her knowledge & understanding

While I’ve known Becky for a number of years, it was only recently that I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in one of her classes. Becky’s kindness and thoughtfulness towards others translated into a gentle, contemplative practice that asked me to look inward, to pay attention to my breath, body, and thoughts, to let my inner guru lead. Don’t let the word “gentle” lead you to believe it was a passive class. It most certainly wasn’t! I definitely worked but did so in a more mindful, self-loving way. I left the class feeling less stressed, more relaxed, and more receptive to the world around me and the world within. It was exactly what I needed. Thank you, Becky!
