Rebecca Risher

Rebecca has been a full-time yoga teacher for more than a decade; her classes provide a safe, healing space well-suited for all levels of experience ‍and ideal for those seeking comfort and ease in stillness. Rebecca encourages you to delve into self-awareness by exploring the deeper, hidden layers of the self that are in need of acknowledgment and processing. She keeps classes as simple and quiet as possible in order to allow students to decompress and release.

Rebecca, Certified Yoga Therapist and RYT-500, is extensively trained in both the Hatha and Kundalini traditions, specializing in Yoga Nidra, Yin, and Restorative. She has trained with a diverse range of teachers exposing her to an assortment of styles.

Some of her most influential include Paul Grilley, Yin and Judith Lasater, Restorative. Erich Schiffmann is her soul teacher and reminds her of the importance of trusting her inner guidance, remembering that we all are connected, and accepting that intuition is the true source of wisdom.

Rebecca received her BA in Psychology from the University of Dallas in Irving, Texas. After a few years of struggling to accept the corporate world, the magnetism from her practice developed into an intense desire to share the practice, and she began teaching Hatha Yoga. The personal and spiritual growth that resulted from being fully immersed in the yoga world changed everything for her, and she has never looked back. The thirst for knowledge and growth never wanes, and after settling into teaching, Kundalini training was the natural next step. While Hatha allows for a slower process and integration, Kundalini shakes things up and elevates one’s passion and vitality. After years of diligent training and study, Rebecca completed her 500-hour certification in 2016.

Presently, Rebecca resides in Austin, Texas, and spends her days teaching yoga and meditation, and creating one-of-a-kind malas. She teaches at several studios around Austin, offers private classes in her home studio, and teaches corporate classes during the week. Rebecca considers making malas to be a big part of her mediation practice, as she chants mantras while she works.
