Becky Obray was born in the magical Yampa Valley and continues to make her home and raise her family in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Stories of her childhood reveal how her parents had to sing (chant) and use special mantras to get her to climb the mountains near her home. This connection to nature ended up giving her a life-long wisdom and understanding of body, mind and spirit. She now hikes, bikes, skis, climbs and runs the mountains of her childhood with abandon. Ultimately, this led her to the Berkshire mountains of northern Massachusetts and the study of Ayruvedic medicine at the Kripalu Institute.
“Nature offers a whisper that reveals our elemental makeup and our imbalances. When we slow down, and have space, we gain knowledge about ourselves.” (Becky Obray)
Becky’s background in Exercise Science gave her the education necessary to begin a deeper teaching practice of Pilates and Yoga. With a passion and understanding of mind, body and spirit, and her subsequent studies at Kripalu, she opened her own business; Sole Balance Ayurveda LLC. She currently practices as an Ayurvedic Practitioner, Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist and Integral Pilates Instructor.
Becky’s heart lies in the choice to authentically live and breathe a holistic, wellness lifestyle. She loves learning and teaching through the ancient lens of Yoga and Ayurveda. She believes the imbalances of the body and mind are our personal callings to find truth and consciousness in our lives.
