Rebecca Ruhd is a Livingston native who returned 12 years ago with her own family. Despite being born & raised in the Big Sky state, Rebecca was a shy, chubby child who was not too keen on the outdoors or being active. As an adult she found she enjoyed yoga, but discovered that group dance fitness best motivated her to keep her body moving. After years of not letting anyone see her sweat, she allowed her sister to drag her to a dance fitness class but stayed in the very, very back, and finally found a fitness home up front and out loud in OULA, Rebecca became a certified OULA Instructor in July 2019. She is excited to lead new and experienced dancers in this format that embraces physical, mental, and emotional fitness and meets you where you are.

Hi! My name is Becca Rose and I am passionate about yoga and the benefits it can bring to your mind, body, and spirit. I have personally experienced the balance and positive changes that can happen by committing to a daily/regular yoga practice and I am here to help bring that into your world! Yoga has been a support to me mentally and physically, as well as the keystone to my maintained sobriety. I can feel the benefits of my practice as I move through life now with an open heart, flexible mind, and grounded spirit. I look forward to guiding you to finding your own personal balance and personal strength on and off the yoga mat. Bring a smile and I’ll see you on the mat!
Julie began her Pilates journey over ten years ago in Ennis, MT. Since then, she’s been leading both virtual and in-person classes in Oregon but is back in Montana and eager to lead classes Livingston! Julie survived a traumatic motorcycle accident several years ago and attributes her ability to heal to Pilates both before and after the experience. Her incredible perseverance shows through in the way she teaches and her ability to make sure movements are accessible for everyone. She specializes in providing quality exercise to the aging active community. Even though the world around us seems to be out of balance, we still have the option to maintain our physical health, our spirit, and our mental health with movement. This is how we maintain the balance within ourselves. The mind, body, spirit connection is essential in order to find that balance. Pilates isn’t just a name nor a word, it’s an action, it’s a lifestyle. You’ve got to do it, to get it. I have a particular passion for meeting people in their bodies where they are. Having had my own unique challenges, I understand there is a lot to learn about walking in someone else’s shoes. Come strengthen, stretch and balance your body with me! A body in motion stays in motion! Come join the fun!
