About









"Sankalpa" is Sanskrit for "sacred intention." A sankalpa is current, truthful, rooted deep in the essence of one's being. Immediate life goals may change with life seasons, but sankalpa runs through these changes as the essence of who one is. Sankalpa offers you a sense of trust and peace through life's turbulent times, and a guiding light at life's crossroads--whether the big decisions, or the everyday habits. 

Hey there! I'm Bekah, a yoga and meditation instructor in Madison, WI. The guidance I offer on the mat and off is meant to help you discover, accept, love, and live your own deepest essence: your sankalpa. I believe that each person has something of value to offer the world, and part of my life purpose is to hold space for you to relax into your value and worthiness.


The yoga flows, meditations, and rituals I offer 


help relieve back, hip, and mental suffering and pain

increase your strength and flexibility--of body and mind

provide practical tools for you to use to interact with yourself and others with kindness

offer you permission to rest, heal, and connect with your worthiness

are playful, honest, and open to dialogue

integrate beauty into both celebrations and the everyday

invite you into community with others


Sankalpa Life exists to empower you to live your particular energy and life purpose with joy and peaceful intuition. Why? Because the world needs your power and beauty. Because you have the power to heal, to implement change, to bring peace. Because until you unlock your power and believe in it, nothing will change.
