Rachel has been practicing Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga since 2009, when she was living in Cape Town, South Africa. She has studied throughout the world with David Swenson, Matthew Sweeney, Michael Hamilton and Tim Feldmann. Her first 200-hr YTT was with Paul Dallaghan at Centered Yoga in Thailand in 2012. Since then, she’s continued her asana and pranayama studies under his tutelage and that of his teacher, Sri O.P. Tiwari, completing her 500-hr teacher training in 2015. Rachel tailors her teaching to each individual student and aims to helps students ground the mind, center the body and regulate their nervous system. She infuses her teaching with discipline, compassion and even the occasional joke.
