About Wainhouse Wellness

Wainhouse Wellness began in early 2013 with a commitment to bettering lives by bringing eastern practices to the western world in a manner that is relatable, relevant, and usable. We recognize that the demands of modern society are great and that today’s culture is fast-paced and complex. We see the need to slow down - not in spite of our multi-tasking, full-throttle environment, but in order to function optimally within it.

We recognize that any organization has its own set of values and its own culture. We work to enhance this culture by building connections among our program participants.

We believe in bringing a sense of humor to practices that have inherent gravity.

We strive to bring peace of mind to the community – whether a corporation, hospital, public space, school, or residential program.

We believe in the power of mindfulness and the limitless possibility that comes with self-exploration.

Why Wainhouse?

Edith Wainhouse Davis was Rebecca’s paternal grandmother. She was very much the matriarch: big-hearted, sassy, and incredibly proud of her family. By incorporating her name into our company, we hope to embody her values as we serve our communities.

About the Founder

Rebecca started practicing yoga in 2001, and has since completed two 200-hr teacher trainings at Stil Studio and Dragonfly Yoga Studio. She is also prenatal certified through the Asheville Yoga Center and is an active member of the Bodhi & Mind team, bringing specialized yoga to women with breast cancer. Her yoga classes are fun and therapeutic in equal parts, combining a sense of playfulness with a focus on alignment.

In her prior career as a social worker, Rebecca focused on facilitating her clients’ introspection. Now an Usui Reiki Master Teacher, Rebecca hopes to empower individuals to find healing and growth from within.

Rebecca started Wainhouse Wellness in early 2013 as a way to bring wellness programming into community settings. Since then, the organization has had a presence in schools, corporations, and transitional living facilities, among other venues.
