Rebecca Ellis

Hi Everyone.

Following the difficult circumstances we are currently living through and responding to feedback from all the lovely people who have been joining me online this week, I’ve changed the class schedule for the following 2 weeks (from Monday 23rd March). For updates see my personal website.

Please see Yoga with Rebecca Timetable for a full schedule of current online classes.  I’ve created a programme so that you can join specific sessions or can combine them to create a longer practice. Look forward to seeing you whether for 15 minutes or 2 hours!

There is no charge for these sessions – we’re all in the same boat regarding our current money based economy. If you would like to make a donation please email rebecca@theriverroom.org.uk for my bank details.

If you are looking for Meditation and Relaxation (with Rebecca and Will):

  • Morning Meditation: everyday Monday-Friday, 7.00-7.15 am
  • Lunchtime Relaxation: everyday Monday-Friday, 1.30-2.00 pm

If Gentle Yoga is what you need:

  • Gentle Morning Yoga: 7.20-8.00 am, Monday, Wednesday and Friday
  • Gentle Evening Yoga: 5.00-5.55 pm, Tuesday and Wednesday

For those wanting to push a little further, Hatha Flow:

  • Morning Hatha Flow: 8.10-9.00 am, Monday, Wednesday and Friday
  • Evening Hatha Flow: 6.05-7.00 pm, Tuesday and Wednesday
  • Saturday Refresh Yoga, 9.00-10.30 am

And then of course … end of the week Yin/Restorative Yoga

  • Friday 6.00 – 7.30pm

NB – Gentle Yoga is appropriate for everyone, irrespective of fitness, experience of yoga etc. Hatha Flow and Saturday Refresh Yoga are more strenuous classes and not really appropriate for beginners or if you have injuries or health conditions that effect your practice. Yin/Restorative Yoga doesn’t require physical fitness or experience but does require you, as with all yoga practices, to listen carefully to what your body needs.

I have been asked to provide classes appropriate for teenagers – the Hatha Flow classes may well appeal to this age group and the classes are now generally shorter (50 mins rather than 90) – maybe also Gentle Yoga would appeal but that would depend…..

A big thanks to my partner Will Medd for teaching meditation and relaxation and for helping out with the tech and support in all sorts of ways and to Billy Callway https://livesuitemedia.com/ who I really recommend you contact if you are looking for help with your own on-line teaching platforms. He’s fantastic!

Big love Rebecca XX

About Me

I was introduced to yoga as a teenager and have practiced on and off ever since. It wasn’t until my 40s, however, that I fell deeply in love with this ancient practice.

I love the physical strength, flexibility and release it gives me. Most of all though I love the way in which yoga, in its fullest sense, makes me feel more alive than I had ever hoped for. And part of this feeling of vitality has meant becoming ever more sensitive to the vastness of what it means to be human, including some of the bits I might rather avoid. Living with yoga means living with and embracing contradiction.

Wanting to deepen and share this practice, I decided to train as a yoga teacher and qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga in 2016. I teach a variety of classes, drawing on different styles of yoga and always aiming to be as inclusive of all types of bodies, range of experience as possible.

Please feel free to ring me for a chat and to drop-in and try any class. See below for details.
