Rebecca Cheeks Soule

Rebecca is a leading yoga teacher based in New York City, an E-RYT 500 in the ISHTA lineage, and holds a PhD in Biology from UNC-Chapel Hill. She began practicing and informally teaching yoga in 1998. Be it biology or yoga, Rebecca has been teaching students of all ages and backgrounds her entire adult life. She and her Soule Man (the E is silent) live a very full life in New York City, where Rebecca teaches and practices yoga and meditation. 

In 2010 Rebecca switched gears from research and teaching science to begin teaching yoga full-time. Since then, Rebecca has completed trainings to teach children’s yoga, restorative yoga, prenatal yoga, yoga nidra, ISHTA Marma therapy, and yoga for veterans coping with post-traumatic stress and much more. Besides a full schedule teaching at ISHTA, she enjoys learning from and assisting her teacher Alan Finger with marma therapy, ISHTA trainings, and in his meditation classes. Her continued growth as a teacher is also enhanced by attending trainings with Rod Stryker.

Rebecca helps her students grow to their fullest potential, in mind, body, and spirit. She feels strongly that achieving a greater awareness of breath, body and mind brings balance into your life and will help you to realize your fullest potential.

Ultimately, she helps her students gain physical ease in the body, clarity and peace of mind, and to experience the boundless potential of spirit. Rebecca's teaching will guide you towards the wisdom and intelligence you have inside of you, towards your own inner teacher.
