Hello! I'm Rebecca .

I'm a movement and breath coach, creative soul and lifelong learner!

I help people get connected to their bodies through breath and movement. 

I offer a range of movement, breath and self-discovery services for anyone wishing to feel more balanced, connected and truly themselves.

My work is imbued with tried and tested techniques steeped in research and experience. I coach students by empowering them with tools that they can apply themselves. I approach teaching with compassion, kindness and 'feet firmly on the ground' practicality and I am devoted to facilitating individuals and groups reconnect to their truest selves. 

Welcome! 

 
 

My Story.

I have been expressing stories through movement since I was young enough to stand. Movement, dance, creating art and nature were always things that made me feel most alive and its still true for me today.


My career of nearly 25 years was in the performing arts industry as a dancer, singer and actress, working extensively in theatre, TV & Film all over the world.


I gradually transitioned into working as a Movement Coach while working as an assistant director. My job in rehearsals was to facilitate teaching non-dancers and actors how to move. It was from this moment that I became aware of creating a toolkit for anyone with no formal dance training to connect to their bodies and move freely. 

I further developed my knowledge on as many movement techniques as I could, especially concerning acting and I became fascinated by the body’s ability to store unreleased emotions. On a personal level, I had begun to realise the damage repressed feelings were having on my own physical and mental health and movement became more than just dancing to me but a form of healing. 

My training as a Breath Coach began when I suffered what I now know to be an asthma attack. To suddenly have my breathing restricted due to anxiety and stress resulted in me wanting to discover more about something I had so often taken for granted. 

Before embarking on my own healing journey, whenever feelings became overwhelming, I would push them back down and on the outside I would distract myself with busyness and plaster a smile across my face. On the inside, I was falling apart, literally not breathing properly and feeling lost and alone. The more I was repeating this pattern, the more I had no idea of who I was.

So much of my own personal journey has impacted the work I do today, leading me to become a Facilitator in Chakradance™, Inamojo™ and a YOGABODY® breath coach and inspiring my work with actors.

I hope to bring you back to a relationship with your own body and your true self by empowering you with practical steps and tools to bring healing, balance, and self-awareness to your life.

My wish for you, is that you come to honour and accept who you really are.  The body is our guide, all we need to do is learn to listen.

I’m so glad you’re here.
