I believe that in any situation, experience is greater than the object or the end result. This is especially true in yoga. My intention is to guide individuals to begin or continue the inner practice of yoga both on the mat an off the mat. By simply allowing yourself to feel and observe mind, body and spirit, you can connect to the pure joy and experience of yoga. Yoga can be a conduit to allow you to be the best version of you. I invite you to explore yoga and see where your experience takes you!
I was first introduced to yoga by my high school Volleyball Coach and Guidance Counselor, Angie Koontz. In October 2015, I completed my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification at Sense of Samadhi under the guidance of Tairi Grace, LCSW, 500 RYT, E-RYT and Daidra Murano, 500hr Yoga Instructor and Licensed Clinical Psychologist. In October 2017, I earned my Personal Training Certification through National Academy of Sports Medicine. I enjoy working one on one with people to achieve their yoga, fitness or personal goals.
For 15 years, I worked in the field of marketing. When I discovered yoga in 2011, my body had begun to hold onto tension and stress, specifically in my shoulders. At the time, I was suffering from migraines and a false belief that there wasn’t enough time in the day. From this point forward, yoga has been the consistent tool I have used to center myself. Each time I step onto my mat, I feel myself connect to my breath and work through areas of tightness.
In October 2016, I received my RYT 200 Hour Yoga Certification from Sense of Samadhi, in Yorkville, IL. Yoga is my passion; I feel an obligation to share yoga with my community. I enjoy guiding fellow yogis through their practice, and this is why I chose to leave marketing and solely teach. I have been blessed with an amazing support system and a strong team of instructors, together our goal is to hold space for you to find your joy. Welcome to Yellow Aura Yoga!
Becky Litwicki, 200hr Hatha Yoga Teacher, fell in love with yoga after years of intense basketball and CrossFit workouts. Contrary to her limited beliefs, she learned yoga is far more than stretching and being “zenned out”; instead it can be a playful way to live in the present moment. Her years of yoga have helped her realize the immense potential of being human and to be more open-hearted, patient, and in tune with herself. Her teaching focuses on alignment and mind/body awareness to empower her students to move and breathe in a way that serves them best on and off the mat.
