Becca Collins, RYT 200, finished her teacher training in July of 2017 through Marianne Wells Yoga School in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. She found yoga as a young teen, going to the gym with her mom. When she moved to Baton Rouge for college, she frequently attended classes at the LSU Recreational Center. As her engineering classes became more difficult, she knew yoga
could be a great way to decrease her stress and anxiety while staying healthy in college. Quickly after attending weekly classes at a studio in Baton Rouge, she knew that yoga was meant to heal herself and others physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Now Becca is working as a Petroleum Engineer for the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Becca is honored and humbled to be able to share the gift of yoga with others. She believes yoga is really for everybody and wishes you to come explore and learn about yoga with her. “The soul moves the body; the living body moves the world.”

She began her practice in grade school, thanks to her mom’s old Yoga Journal VHS tapes. During college in Indiana she began adamantly studying meditation and asana. After realizing how transformative and unifying yoga study can be, she desperately wanted to share that with others. She’s honored and thrilled to share that with the Yoga and You Anwhere community.
