Rebecca Benenati, co-owner of City Yoga with husband Anthony Benenati, knows how to hold the space for those of us with more of an intermediate to advanced practice. This class is set to live music regularly – what a treat that is. At the particular class we went, a gal with an angelic voice sang and was accompanied by another woman playing a mesmerizing drum rhythm. The music allowed us to connect to the ancientness of the yoga practice while Rebecca's alignment cues and hands-on adjustments (Bonus: She's a massage therapist) helped us stay in our bodies and in the present moment. The practice was sweaty and challenging, yet felt safe and wasn't too chaturanga-heavy. The warmth that Rebecca exudes is palpable, and her class has an element of playfulness to it as well – for example, when it was time to go upside down at the wall, she counted out, "1, 2, 3!" (Three was our cue to handstand.) Then, during savasana the drummer came by each of us to give us a "touch" of sound vibration sending a wave through our body that we'll never forget.

Rebecca is the most intuitive

Rebecca is the most intuitive teacher I've ever come across in my 6 years of yoga. She will answer a question right out of your head. Construct a sequence that you will swear was prescribed for you, and adjust you so perfectly and with such love it feels like a mother holding her baby. But don't be fooled this is a strong practice and she will challenge even the most die hard yogis. If you are a yogi treat yourself to a class with Rebecca. I promise you won't be disappointed.

Im so happy that you have FINALLY wrote an article highlighting one of the best yoga teachers in LA (or anywhere). No fluff, no hybridized-yoga-of-the-month taught by a recent graduate of XYZ yoga shala. 20 years of experience and thousands of yoga classes under her belt. She is the real deal. Thank you!!!!
