Rachel found yoga as a teenager. It challenged her body, then calmed and clarified her mind. Over the next 20 years, through a Business Degree, a stint in corporate marketing, and international travels, yoga became a touchstone that she returned to repeatedly until it sparked the idea of something more. In 2011 Rachel finally became a Yoga Alliance registered teacher.
Since then she has taught more than 5000 hours of classes, completed completed a 500-hour yoga teacher training with Tiffany Cruikshank and Yoga Medicine, and amassed hundreds of hours of training in Anatomy & Physiology, Nutrition, Sports Training & Development, Mentoring and Yin Yoga.
Based in Queenstown New Zealand, Rachel is now a full-time E-RYT500 yoga teacher, YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider), a Yoga Medicine Therapeutic Specialist, and a proud member of the Yoga Medicine teaching team.
Some of her students are strong vinyasa yogis aiming to deepen their personal practice. Others come for the slower, more subtle exploration of Yin yoga. Her therapeutic private yoga students want to learn how yoga can help them feel stronger, more stable, and more serene. Whether they attend group classes, workshops, retreats, private sessions, or teacher training, the common denominator is lively curiosity; they come to learn – about anatomy and alignment, and about themselves. As a teacher, and as a regular contributor to online platforms Yoga International and Yoga Journal, Rachel aims to both spark and satisfy that curiosity. She takes her role seriously, but takes herself lightly.
