Traditionally trained in Ashtanga Yoga, my teacher training comes from the Himalaya Yoga Valley Centre in Goa, India. Following the Himalaya and Mysore traditions I offer Ashtanga inspired Vinyasa flow with Iyengar alignment.
The Asana sequences in the classes are based around the Ashtanga Series' and each has a gentle focus on an aspect of well-being such as Yoga for Relaxation or Yoga for Rejuvenation. Class venues include Harbour House in Kingsbridge, The Flavel Arts Centre in Dartmouth and local village halls throughout the South Hams, South Devon. Please contact Rachel or follow the link below for more information on session details, times and locations.
Each group class and one-to-one session is open to every level of experience; whether this is your first time stepping on to a yoga mat, or whether you have a well established personal practice all sessions are sequenced to include you.
Personally, my own yoga and meditation practice spans the last thirty years. More recently I have found it immensely valuable in both recovering from, reducing and managing stress, both on a professional and personal level. Having worked in various corporate and business roles I fully appreciate and recognise the impact of work-based and emotional stress, both physically and mentally. I am absolutely passionate about sharing simple and accessible well-being practices which support us to create balance and harmony in our lives, for both body and mind.
In the classes we will be connecting to our body and breath, with the invitation of bringing our awareness inwards: resting our minds, letting-go, lengthening, strengthening and generating a profound sense of well being.
Welcoming wellness into body and soul.
I look forward to seeing you on the mat.
"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."
