Hi there! I’m Rebecca Sue Peters, a Licensed Massage Therapist, and Experienced Yoga Teacher. I love working with clients on their wellness journeys here at my studio in Columbia, Missouri, Bellelune Massage and Yoga!
A bit about my journey:
I began my study of wellness in college with a year of study of Iyengar yoga. I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology (minors in Biology and Chemistry), and soon moved to Columbia. I worked for the University of Missouri for many years as an administrative assistant and during that time I studied for my 600 hr certification and license in massage therapy from the Massage Therapy Institute of Missouri. The same year I graduated massage therapy school (2008), I opened Bellelune Massage and Yoga!
I continued to study various styles of yoga on DVD and in local classes until I began my first 100 hr yoga teacher training in 2008. I did my second 200 hr training in 2009 with Gina Caputo (Colorado School of Yoga) in Integrated Vinyasa, and in 2016 my advanced 500 hr training in Yoga Therapy and Ayurveda with Matt and Holly Krepps in Jasper, Arkansas. I just recently (2018) completed another 140 hr Depth Intensive (Dynamic Yoga) in Portugal with Olivia Crooks and Godfrey Devereux, and a 50 hr Foundations of Yin Yoga with Josh Summers (2019), and a 30 hr level 1 iRest Yoga Nidra training (2019), for somewhere north of 800 total hours of professional yoga teacher training.
I am currently working on my 120 hr Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist training, after which, I will begin to offer yoga classes inspired by Ayurveda.
