The Body Loom is founded and owned by Rebecca Vasile. Rebecca Vasile is an internationally traveled performer, instructor and director from Petaluma, CA that has returned to her home to foster community in the world of movement. In her dance career, she performed with Aerosmith, toured worldwide with the Bellydance Superstars, directed the World Belly Dance Awards in China, co-founded a professional dance company and produces shows. However, Rebecca also is well accomplished as an instructor in both Pilates and Yoga and feels passionately about helping people feel wonderful in their bodies. She is well equipped to work with a wide range of people from those who have injuries to athletes to prenatal and postpartum women.
In the yoga realm, Rebecca is a Certified Stellarflow yoga instructor (RYT 200) through Kiki Lovelace (Forrest Yoga Guardian) and Yoga Alliance. She studied with Jane Austin for her prenatal yoga teacher training. She teaches Forrest Yoga inspired Vinyasa, Prenatal Yoga & Mom & Baby Yoga.
Additionally, Rebecca is a fully certified Pilates Mat and Apparatus instructor. She is a certified pre and postnatal Pilates instructor through The Center for Women’s Fitness and is certified in The Center Method for Diastasis Recti Recovery. After pregnancy, the ab muscles can be separated leading to low back pain and pelvic dysfunction - as well as a perpetual low belly pooch that is seemingly impossible to get rid of. Rebecca works with these moms using a special method to repair the abdominals no matter how long it's been since a woman has given birth.
Her classes combine all her various knowledge and experiences in an easy-going and joyful manner. She loves to assist others in feeling more connected to their bodies and reveling in the fun, curious ways in which we can move. Most of all, she's on a continual mission to help people feel good in their body.
