Meet Rebecca

Rebecca Belsanti (she/her) has a lifelong passion for studying the human body. In her 20’s, she danced professionally, including 2 years dancing with Prince! Due to dance injuries, she shifted to healthcare, became an Occupational Therapist, and has worked in adult rehabilitation for the past 15 years. During this time, she found the healing powers of Pilates and yoga and received certifications in both practices. She used these holistic methods with her patients (and on herself) and saw incredible results. Pilates in particular helped her to rehabilitate from a shoulder surgery due to a car accident in 2013.


Rebecca has recently moved to her dream home in Cambria and is ready to share her passion for wellness with you. She currently uses mat and standing exercises on-line but is trained in all Pilates equipment, such as the reformer, Wunda chair, and Cadillac. A Reformer studio space is coming soon!!! Rebecca also loves hiking local trails with her dog, tidepooling with her daughter, and wine tasting with her wife and friends.

I am overjoyed to join the Cambria community and share my love for wellness with others! I especially enjoy working with older adults, whom I refer to as “Active Agers.” Prevention is the true answer to healthy aging, and I’ve seen my clients grow in strength, flexibility, balance, and confidence as they take classes each week. Pilates and yoga are so transformative and magical. Join the Metta family and feel it for yourself!


Best of Health,


Thanks so much for being such an AMAZING pilates instructor! You introduced me to the practice of pilates, and I find myself stronger and more tone at close to 50 years old, than ever before in my life.

What is Metta?

Metta is a Pali word that means “loving-kindness.” I chose this word for my business because it is my deep wish to bring loving-kindness and happiness to myself and others. You can breathe deep and repeat these phrases or create ones on your own. It is my wish that they bring you joy!

 


May I be happy.
May I be healthy.
May I be safe.
May I be peaceful.
May you be happy.
May you be healthy.
May you be safe.
May you be peaceful.

 

I feel so much better after Pilates class. Rebecca is so aware of how older bodies are not always able to do the stretches and she advises us to listen to our bodies, do what we can, and offers alternative moves. This keeps me returning for her classes.
