Hi, I’m Rebecca Wasilewski. From very early on I knew that I was meant to help people. It is no surprise to me how my life has evolved! I am a nature-loving Registered Massage Therapist, Yoga Teacher, entrepreneur, wife, mom, daughter, sister and friend. Becoming a manual therapist and yoga teacher was a natural progression from growing up around the Taoist Tai Chi Society with my grandad, who taught for many years. It introduced me to the relationship that exists between anatomy, mindful movement and well-being at a very young age. I live my life respecting this balance.
I began my career as an RMT in 2105 graduating with an Advanced Diploma in Massage Therapy, with Dean’s honours. I have trained with the Dr. Vodder School of Manual Lymphatic Drainage, and have furthered my education and training pertaining to perinatal and infant massage.
I am a long-standing volunteer with the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board and an active volunteer with the Cancer Assistance Program. I studied classical piano for many years with the Royal Conservatory, and I am excited to be a contributing co-author to the book, “You Have So Much Potential, Inspiring Healing In Your Client’s Transformation”, to be published early 2019!
My journey with yoga began as a way to continue focusing on physical fitness and heal my body on “rest days” from the gym, but I learned very quickly that yoga was much more than that. I fell in love with the practice.
I opened Namaste Wellness Collective in July of 2018, because I wanted to share my passion for anatomy, yoga and Massage Therapy with my clients and my community!
