About Rebecca Butler

Rebecca Butler lives in Fort Worth, TX. Here, she fancies herself in a community that is at the genesis of change. By day, she is a self-proclaimed-intensity-junkie yoga teacher, serving as the lead teacher at a local donation based studio known as Karmany Yoga, a mother, and a wife... By night {when the house sleeps}, she is a writer, a dreamer and a poet. Her most meaningful moments are sometimes spent pushing a stroller, listening to her latest muse {from Dr. Wayne W. Dyer to Caroline Myss} and picking up poop from a 90 lb silver lab puppy named Gunner. Her mother passed from ALS (Lou Gehrigʼs disease) in early 2012. Through this journey, Rebecca learned more about life, love and laughter than any book could have possibly taught her. It is in her memory that Rebecca chooses to live each day in Joy... Joy for life - the ups and downs, breaks and bruises and the glory. Oh, the glory.

A Blessed Life: Practicing Gratitude in the Face of Robbery

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead, and a place to sleep at night, you are richer than 75% of the world. If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the one million who will not survive this week due […]

Giving Voice To My Fears Helped Me Find Empowerment

One day in the not-so-distant past, like within the last month, I had a rare moment of complete clarity around my fears. Usually, when I’m wanting to unearth such things, it takes hours of work, awareness, and meditation. But this was different. All of the sudden, I just had a vivid moment of clarity. They […]

Hold On: Surviving The Dark Night of the Soul

I’m in the desert. Well, it’s sort of the desert. It’s really a mish-mash, a smorgasbord, a cacophony of reds and blues and purples and muted greens and earthy browns and soft yellows and hints of white… It’s lyrical. Mountains meet desert, rocks meet sky, layers of earth pile atop of one another, a delectable […]

Channeling Love

Sometimes, I get stuck thinking about Emily Rapp. I don’t want to do this. Her life has been undoubtedly painful of late. I know this even though I’ve never met her. She lost her son recently. He had Tay Sachs’ disease. He died the day after Valentine’s Day — near the tender age of three. […]

Last week, we had an interesting experience at our studio. It impacted both myself and my fellow teacher who teaches the class before mine. We both wrote about it. The parallels are fascinating. “This isn’t my first time to do yoga,” he assured me. I hadn’t asked, but he had told me regardless. I smiled […]

Can Friendships Withstand Different Belief Systems?

I had dinner recently with two of my favorite people on the planet. I have known these girls since I was 13. I love them both dearly, and yet, as sometimes happens, we have drifted apart. They are the type of friends that you can pick up with right where you left off, however long […]
