"Rachel is an incredible teacher with a beautiful aura. She radiates calmness, kindness, and understanding. Her voice resonates with a quiet authority and her movements emanate peace while her presence gives space for people to be who they are without judgment. She is a person from whom yoga flows organically, making her a natural and skilled teacher.
I would highly recommend her classes - any of them - to any aspiring or practicing yogis, especially those who are interested in learning from a person who embodies the ancient wisdom of yoga."
