"The moment I walked in I knew it was going to be a blissful day. Thank you Becks for sharing your extensive knowledge and holding such a beautiful space for us women to share, learn and laugh with one another. The take home handouts have been extremely helpful for me to continue on my path of wellness with confidence. Yoga for Womanhood left me feeling empowered, enlightened and uplifted."
"Thank you for the nurturing ambience and delicious food and for guiding us through this really complex topic with the reassuring gentle sound of your soothing voice.
You radiate peace, warmth, compassion and at the same time an inner strength that knows to focus and take charge.
I love the sincerity with which you give your skills and service. It is palpable how much you delight in the opportunity to create a nurturing circle. Your excitement inspires to come along, to try, test, listen and to share."
"Thanks again for the lovely Yoga for Womanhood workshop. I found the workshop very helpful and I came away with a lot. I felt relieved to be in an environment where a traditionally 'taboo' topic (in my family anyway), could be openly discussed and supported.
I loved the poses and came away feeling equipped with more knowledge relating to hormones and the different phases of womanhood. Great to have the handouts to refer back to also. I thought your organisation was great, and really appreciated all the knowledge you shared."
"Hi Rebecca, I just wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you for the workshop. The information was so interesting, the food delicious, it was well organised and you could tell you had put a lot of thought and love into it. A lovely group of women coming together sharing information and of course some yoga too!!"
