about your teacher
Becca Cummings is an experienced registered yoga teacher (ERYT -500) with over 2500 hours of yoga teaching experience. She has completed her 500-Hour Hatha certification through Yoga Yoga in 2018.
After digging dinosaurs for 20 years, Becca retired from paleontology and opened Yin Yang Yoga in Choteau, Montana. She is fond of saying that her focus shifted from the past (fossils) to the present (yoga). While enrolled in Nancy Ruby’s YogaMotion Teacher Training in 2009, she was diagnosed with precancerous leukemia as well as several other life-threatening diseases. Her daily yoga practice quickly became an essential part of her healing journey, and she remains cancer-free. Becca’s personal practice includes mindful breath-based movement and music.
Becca has a relaxing tone of voice, offers excellent verbal cues, and creates well-rounded sequences. She is good at meeting people wherever they are at in their practice, and feels comfortable suggesting modifications. Her offerings are centered upon gratitude, mindfulness, and visualization. Since 2009, she has taught a wide variety of classes to a broad range of ages and abilities, spanning the realms of hatha yoga, yin yoga, vinyasa-style yoga, chair yoga, restorative yoga, yoga for tweens and teens, and yoga for kids. In addition to offering yoga classes, workshops, retreats, and privates, she also facilitates drum circles and is a classically trained musician. Becca strives to embody a space that is both light-hearted and sacred, and lead practices that are challenging yet safe.
