Rachel began her study and practice of hatha yoga in 1992, at the original Jivamukti yoga center in New York City, where she regularly studied with Sharon Gannon and David Life. Her scholarship then lead her to receive teaching certification through the Sivananda lineage. Rachel has been blessed with many strong teachers, in the styles of the Kripalu, Ashtanga, and Iyengar methods. Her personal practice has been deeply influenced and inspired by the teachings of Ana Forrest and the alignment principles that were outlined in the Anusara method developed by John Friend. Rachel engages in ongoing research to create healthy and sustainable practices for our growing and changing bodies. She's happy to claim 25 years of practice and teaching, with an evolving approach that fosters depth and subtlety as well as strong physical engagement. Most recently, Rachel has been weaving in guided meditations and encouraging her students to live their practice in life with compassionate presence unfolding in each moment.
