Y O G A + W R I T E R
I started my fitness journey back in 1999 (YES…you can hum to Prince) teaching group fitness classes beginning with step/floor aerobics (AFAA) then to Body Pump (Les Mills) and discovered along the way I would fall in love with yoga in the early 2000’s, although exposed to yoga in the 90’s as a way to heal from an eating disorder (I thought yoga was weird)!  But when I stepped on my mat, I felt like I was born again into a new body, a clear mind, a calm heart, a connection to not only myself, but also with God. The yoga mat became like a cathedral for my inner Catholic little girl, mountain pose became the steeple, camel became the pew, and child pose became my body prayer.

"The opportunity to work with Rachel has changed my life for the better. Her ability to tap in to my mind and physical needs depending on the day sets her apart from any other yoga experience I've had.


I am lucky to have her lead me on this journey towards inner peace."

As a former P.E. teacher I can really appreciate Rachel's teaching skills as she presents her yoga practices to a group of seniors. She is constantly changing her presentations to meet our needs.  We really appreciate her deep concern and striving for excellence.
