Rebecca Peterson

About The Teacher

Owner of Embracing the Mother Retreats and Sacred Breaths Retreats and Birth Classes

As a Colorado native, Rebecca creates retreats that honor mothers in the childbearing years and take advantage of the beauty of Colorado, where she grew up. Being in circle with other women, more specifically women on a similar journey, creates community and inclusivity. This is something that Rebecca values above all else. Being in community with other mothers is not just healing, it's a necessity. And having the time to getaway, listen to within, and relax is crucial to thriving as a mother.

Rebecca has loved yoga since her early teen years. She has trained with teachers such as Shiva Rea, Shannon Paige, and Tantric teachers like Sally Kempton and Douglas Brooks. Her yoga style is described as down-to-earth; grounded in diving deeper into your heart with mindful compassion and courage; and filled with humor and light-heartedness.

She has been teaching yoga classes at various yoga studios throughout the Denver and Boulder, Colorado area since 2008, specializing in mamas. There is always laughter in her classes and retreats!

Her influences include Kate Northrup, Brene Brown, and Kimberly Ann Johnson. Her most significant influences are her children, Skyler and Everly, and her beloved husband, Joel, whose loving encouragement and patient listening makes following her calling a reality.
