Yoga, Instructor

Rebecca Morley

I have had a passion for Yoga from a very early age, practicing many different styles. I discovered Hot Yoga as a way to deal with stress, found the path to inner peace and am passionate about the benefits of yoga for positive mental, physical and spiritual health. I trained at the Yogahaven training school in Morocco where the unique style of hot yoga is called “leela”, meaning “play” in Sanskrit. So put a smile on your face and join me on the mat with an open heart and open mind. Love & Light

I completed my British Wheel of Yoga 500 hours teacher training in 2008. Over the years of teaching I have taught a very broad spectrum of yoga classes from professional football players, professional rugby players through to a group of elderly Indian ladies who do yoga in their saris and I’ve taught everything in between these diverse classes. Since qualifying as a yoga teacher I lived in Abu Dhabi for three years and was lucky enough to teach yoga in a yoga studio and also I taught private classes and one-to-one classes. Teaching and doing my own yoga practice in Abu Dhabi in heats of 40+c has given me a great insight into hot yoga and how it affects your body and the benefits of a hot practice. I would describe my classes as movement with breath with lots of verbal instruction as well as demonstration.  I love all types of yoga and wherever I have been in the world I have found a yoga class to attend. I am looking forward to meeting you all on your yoga mats soon.

I was blessed to take my first ever yoga class at Hot Buddha 3 years ago. Over time I experienced a transformation not only of a physically unhealthy lifestyle but also mentally letting go. I was truly blessed to learn and be inspired by fellow students along with being guided by some of the most inspirational teachers that are resident at Hot Buddha today. The nurture , love and abundance within the studio inspired me to give back and in September 2017 I qualified as a yoga alliance 200hr certified instructor under the guidance and expertise of Stu Alexander and Frank Perry. I have been privileged to practice in many places across the world with my most memorable experiences being in India, Thailand and Indonesia. As such, my heart connects with Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga styles however, as I continue to feed my passion for yoga through learning, I have explored several other forms including Bikram, Iyengar, Yin and restorative. 
Yoga is much more than a workout, it's a union of mind,body and breath along with a community that truly feels like home

I first discovered Yoga at the age of 16 and practiced at home to a DVD primarily for fitness. I have a background in massage, energy healing and holistic therapy and for me, yoga encapsulates the essence of them by working on the mind, body and spirit. In my mid twenties I explored different styles of yoga and found each class would give me a unique release, whether it was a burst of endurance and focus during a challenging flow, a sense of achievement holding a posture I never thought I could achieve or crying out of no where during a Yin class! My mat was a sanctuary, a place for inner reflection, self discovery and fun and I was hooked! Yoga builds self confidence, self esteem and appreciation of your body which all reflect in other aspects of your life. Yoga can change your life!


Last year I completed my 200hr YTT course and qualified as a Yin instructor and I am excited to see what the future brings with this new chapter! Take just one hour out of your hectic life, just for you to connect body, breath and mind and you will feel a difference. With an open heart and an open mind start your journey with me.

Although I have always been quite an active person, it was yoga that found me during a very difficult time in my life. When I discovered the joy enhancing benefits of yoga, both mentally and physically, I knew had to find a way to share it with others.

I took my YTT L3 in 2014 with the wonderful Conrad Paul of Yoga Professionals and have been hosting classes ever since.

I would discribe my teaching style as playful and light hearted. I believe that yoga should be a fun and freeing safe place that brings about healing through the art of movement, breath and laughter.
I look forward to practicing with you soon!

Yoga found me at a difficult time in my life and changed my life forever. By linking breath and movement I opened myself up to become more aware … of myself, others and my emotions. The awareness yoga brings helps us to better understand who we are, it gives us strength, flexibility and when practiced with devotion- inner peace. For me it’s pure magic and that’s the reason I teach… I would describe my classes as, strong, mindful, informative and always suitable for beginners.

I have been teaching at Hot Buddha since 2016 until I took a break recently for myself and my own practice, I have now returned to teach on a Thursday evening ready to share the love…come breathe with me!

From my very first yoga class, I was hooked on the way it made me feel—strong, centred, and at peace. Over the years, I've practised with a variety of teachers and styles, and I immersed myself in my teacher training to deepen my knowledge of the philosophy of yoga and my own practice.

To me, yoga is a metaphor for life, the linking of breath and movement in yoga mirrors the way we navigate the ups and downs of life. It's a way of finding peace and clarity amidst the ebbs and flows of our existence.

My classes focus on movement, breath, and mindfulness. I enjoy learning about the mechanics of the body, creating a certain atmosphere in class, and using the physical postures to send energy to different places within the body, releasing tension and opening up.

I'm honoured to share this practice with others and to guide them on their own journey of self-discovery and transformation—breathe and move on your mat, and everything else will evolve.

My Yoga journey began over 12 years ago when I attended a hot yoga class for the first time and I was hooked! Yoga for me is escapism… an hour or two to myself with the added benefits of working on strength, flexibility and agility but fundamentally it’s escapism; a dedicated time to go within without outside thinking just being present in that moment releasing anything that doesn’t serve me. 

I decided to do my teacher training after being in lockdown, having done zoom classes online I felt I needed more to deepen my own practice so when the opportunity presented itself I jumped right in completing a intensive 200 hr YTT and 50 hrs adjustments course with Julia Gavin founder of Palm Trees Yoga School Goa and Liverpool yoga academy. 

Since then I’ve also completed 30hrs Yin with Samastah Teacher  Training.  My preferred yoga style I like to teach is Ashtanga, Vinyasa flow and Power yoga, however I like to attend many forms of yoga classes In my personal practice.  Namaste
