Rebeccah Bartlett - Yogamour Global
Based in Chiang Mai, Thailand, Beccah oversees Yogamour Global. Beccah discovered yoga at a young age from her aunt who was a yoga teacher. She didn't embrace yoga until she was 22 however, when she began to take classes at a local studio. The gates opened and yoga became a complete healing process, both physically and mentally. Deciding to explore the world, she ended up volunteering at a school in a “slum” of India. The children were restless so Beccah involved the entire school in a morning practice of yoga before each day began, which did wonders for the kids’ attention spans. It seemed to Beccah that she had found her place.
Her study of yoga, including RYT 200-hour training, has been influenced by teachers such as Seane Corn, Shiva Rae, Sarah Ivanhoe, Faith Hunter, Kathryn Budig, Coby Kozlowski and Rosey Mann.Beccah continues to deepen her playful vinyasa practice and has been amazed by the doors it has opened. Her ultimate passion is to intertwine her yoga community with volunteerism.
