Birth and Postpartum Doula, Prenatal and Family Yoga Instructor
Rebecca has been teaching prenatal, postpartum, and early childhood yoga on Capitol Hill and around DC for over a decade. As a doula, Rebecca provides evidence-based, non-biased and a common sense approach to supporting clients in this time of transition in their lives.
Rebecca completed her initial yoga training in 2006 at the Yoga Center, Columbia, MD. She has continued her studies by completing specialized trainings in prenatal, postnatal and children’s yoga, including Budding Yogis, Childlight Yoga, Itsy Bitsy Yoga, Radiant Child, Yokid, and Yoga for the Special Child, and YoKid.
Rebecca Gitter brings a sense of humor to her classes and focuses on meeting her students – of any age- exactly where they are. Sharing yoga with kids and caregivers in the DC metro area in studios, schools and community centers, as well as with her own two children, always leaves her smiling and inspires her personal practice.
Rebecca brings her calm, unflappable, compassionate, yet analytical approach to serving her doula clients as well. In addition to her DONA birth and postpartum doula trainings, Rebecca brings her years of life experience as a mom, aunt, caregiver and teacher of countless little people and their parents to her doula practice. Rebecca always continues to learn, attending workshops on optimal positioning for labor and delivery, pre and post natal yoga, breastfeeding, newborn care, childbirth and development.
When Rebecca isn’t teaching or supporting clients, you might find her on a trail – hiking biking or being walked by her dog.
