Becca Odom, LCSW, E-RYT 200

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Registered Yoga Teacher, my passion is to empower others to heal themselves and to provide individuals with the skills to create lasting change in their lives. I work individually with young women age 10-25, where I combine transformational counseling with mindful yoga techniques to create a space for deep emotional, physical and spiritual healing. I love empowering young women to find their voice, take back their power and build a healthier relationship with themselves and their bodies. My goal is to empower individuals and families to decrease the effects of anxiety, trauma and stress by increasing their self-awareness, self-regulation and compassionate communication skills.

Originally from Arkansas, I moved to Asheville in 2011 and completed my 200-hour yoga training shortly after at the Asheville Yoga Center. Since then, I have taught more than 1,000 hours and received an E-RYT200 designation from Yoga Alliance. I have been practicing yoga for 12 years and I have been able to witness firsthand my process of growth, self-exploration and healing through these practices. I also offer Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy to individuals and small groups near Asheville, NC.

My background includes receiving my Bachelor and Masters Degrees in Social Work, as well as completing a 230-hour Yoga Teacher Training Program, an 8-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction training, and two 10-day Vipassana Meditation courses. I currently offer Individual Therapy and Private Yoga sessions to individuals and families, and I teach Yoga for Resiliency and Trauma Recovery trainings nationally.

Becca brings a wonderful combination of wisdom, humor, joy and kindness to her yoga classes and professional work. My three teenage daughters love Becca, and I’m so grateful that she has been their first real yoga teacher. Becca has also been an important part of our teams working on projects with families and mind-body medicine in the Asheville community.

Becca’s classes are a beautiful mix of several things that create a powerful self-learning and grounding experience each time. Through her presence and energy, she holds a space of permission, compassion, and honoring of where each participant is and within that space there are many varied invitations to notice the inner. There is a lovely balance between this invitation to cultivate curiosity about the inner realm, while also offering enough of a “handle” for the mind to create and hold intention through readings, chanting, applied neuroscience tidbits, and conscious intention-setting. As a therapist, I often wish that my clients could hold a practice such as the one I get to engage in with Becca. The experience is such a gift.

Rebecca is a very skilled practitioner. She blended her knowledge of chakras and lifespan development to hone in on the specific needs of my body and spirit. It was amazing how much she knew about me based on very basic questions. Rebecca reminded me through this experience how valuable it is to slow down and open up. In addition, she sent me home with tools to remain open and focused daily. Rebecca creates a safe and peaceful space for your practice.

Becca clearly lives her yoga. It is apparent through her word choices, soothing voice, and sequencing of poses. Her music with sweet mantra at the end is an additional bonus. I highly recommend Becca’s classes and workshops for practitioners of all levels.

I look forward to being in Becca’s class every week: her soothing voice is filled with compassion, love and wisdom. The asanas she chooses are deeply relaxing and fully restorative. Her class is a spiritual experience for me.
