a little bit about me...
Hi! I'm Rachael. I am grateful to introduce myself as a full-time Thai yoga therapist, yoga + Ayurveda teacher, accountability partner, and facilitator of community + authentic, meaningful connection.
Since my teaching journey began in 2010 I have completed 1000+ hours of training in various styles of yoga and related healing arts, all of which work together to inform my personal teaching style. Although I enjoy teaching a variety of classes including vinyasa flow, gentle/therapeutic, restorative, yin, and aerial yoga among others, my regular classes predominantly consist of strong but accessible mindfully-paced flows with great emphasis on breath, spinal alignment, and core connection. Class rhythms often evolve with the changing seasons in alignment with the teachings of Ayurveda.
In 2012 I began leading workshops and lectures, teaching students and teachers about the art of self-healing through ancient science of Ayurveda and about compassionate connection and touch through partner Thai yoga therapy + assisting. I currently work with multiple registered yoga schools and offer continuing education credits recognized by the Yoga Alliance.
Working with people one-on-one is my true passion. I believe in creating authentic and meaningful connections through the healing practice of Thai yoga therapy and through private + small group yoga instruction, whether introducing new students to yoga or addressing the specific needs of any level of practitioner. I am also pleased to offer personalized lifestyle consultations for students committed to tangible transformation and self-healing using the principles of Ayurveda.
My intention is to serve. I teach to help you feel supported and at ease, to encourage confidence and authenticity, to challenge you to step outside your comfort zone, and to inspire you to practice and live with integrity, compassion, and joy!
Please contact me if you feel that I may be of service now or in the future.
I look forward to connecting!
