Meet our guest Yoga Instructor

Layla Becker 

I am a 200-hour RYT Yoga Alliance registered yoga instructor who has been practicing yoga for over 20 years and teaching for over one year, with training from the Yoga Institute of Houston.  I have also been trained in meditation and mindfulness education and have utilized these skills with youth groups at my previous job as well as in one on one sessions with counseling clients.   I enjoy yoga for its physical and mental health benefits and became a teacher in order to further enrich my practice as a mental health counselor, recognizing that movement and stretches can reach areas that people may not always be able to access through words.  I believe that yoga and meditation can improve self-esteem, body awareness, stress, and coping with a spectrum of emotions.   Additionally, people can use my classes as an excellent complement for their more rigorous fitness regimen for balance and flexibility.

I currently teach once a week at a yoga studio, provide one-on-one instruction during counseling sessions as requested, and am bringing yoga to the Veterans that we serve at the Houston West Vet Center off Post Oak.
