Meet our teachers

All teachers at the Iyengar Center of Vermont are Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (CIYTs) or in the process of becoming certified. Becoming a CIYT requires years of practice, study and a rigorous examination of skills. For teachers, the Certification Mark demonstrates a commitment to maintaining the purity, excellence and high standards of Iyengar Yoga. Look for the mark! Only the world’s most knowledgeable, rigorously-trained teachers earn Iyengar Yoga Certification. We are excited to share the depth of our knowledge and passion for yoga education with you! For more info about certification and the Iyengar method visit the Iyengar Yoga National Association of the US.


Rebecca Weisman

I am a devoted student and teacher of Iyengar Yoga, and am eager to share this knowledge with you. My classes are a dynamic mix of anatomical exploration and energetic experience, with a focus on bringing the mind to a deep and quiet state of absorption.   

I am a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (Level III) a Certified Yoga Therapist, and the Director at the Iyengar Yoga Center of Vermont.  

I study regularly with Patricia Walden, Kevin Gardiner, Mary Reilly, and Edwin Bryant, and have trained with many other senior Iyengar teachers. I also have traveled to Pune, India to study directly with the Iyengar family.

I have been teaching in Vermont for many years and have a passion for all 8 limbs of the Yoga system which I try to share with my students.  I teach prenatal and postpartum yoga and also have a particular interest in therapeutic and medical applications of yogasana (postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises). I have worked successfully with individuals in private and group classes on many issues including fatigue, depression, chronic illness, chronic pain, lower back pain and sciatica, hip/knee/shoulder problems, recovery from injury, anxiety, blood pressure and immune system disorders.

Kara Rosa

I am a Level I Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher and apprentice of Rebecca Weisman. I am an advocate of holistic health practices and began my practice of yoga in 2010 while studying social work at the University of Vermont. After completing several trainings in Ayurveda, Reiki, and Yoga Therapy I am now pursuing certification as a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher. My approach to teaching meets students where they are at, allowing progression to happen. I approach my practice of yoga from a place of determination and self improvement from micro to macro, and from gross to subtle. 

10 years ago while living, traveling and farming in rural Chile I began a daily practice and study of both yoga and meditation. 4 years ago I returned to Vermont with my two children and fell into a yoga therapy training that initiated a catalyst of healing and study. After this initial training I completed a 200 hr integrative Āyurveda program, 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training, Reiki Level I and participated in a Phoenix Rising School of Yoga Therapy Training. 

In 2018 a dear friend of mine brought me to an Iyengar Yoga class with Rebecca and I was hooked. I am inspired by the Iyengar method and its tradition and standards. What I appreciate most from this practice is that it can be rigorous however inclusive of all bodies.

As a student of social work and yoga I believe and work towards making yoga accessible to everyBODY in sharing yoga as a secular tool in maintaining the body, mind and spirit.


Nina Sklar

I discovered Iyengar yoga in 2020 and was captivated from the beginning. The positive shifts in my own life inspired me to teach and share with others the vast knowledge of this subject. I currently study with Rebecca Weisman and am working towards my Level I certification.


I strive to make my classes accessible for all, and to spark a sense of curiosity within each student to dive deeper into their own unique composition. I love exploring how the body and breath can become tools to quiet the mind, and aspire to weave the intricate philosophy of yoga into the physical shapes we make in class.   


I believe everyone can benefit from the practice of yoga, whether it be at a physical, mental, or spiritual level, and I love being a support and guide for every individual to meet their own needs. 

What students are saying...


“I am new to yoga and started taking the gentle class at IYCVT after about a year of doing yoga in general. I was never particularly limber, not even as a child, and I have a frozen shoulder that has improved greatly through the teacher’s thoughtful and knowledgable approach. I have become so much more aware of my body in entirely new ways and look forward to class every week as essential to my physical and emotional wellbeing.”

“I am a golden-aged woman with the aches and pains that naturally go along with achieving this stage of life.  I have been taking Yoga classes with Rebecca for over a year and find her to be an excellent teacher in the true, classical sense of the word.  She is constantly observing, cognizant of each person’s abilities and/or limitations; everyone gets individual attention – with props, modifications, or gentle hints.  It seems that Rebecca instinctively knows when a class member is not comfortable and she is there, presto, with some aid or suggestion. I always look forward to Rebecca’s class and trust my body to her knowledge and expertise.”
