Welcome to your personal yoga practice.

I want to live in a world that is less dogmatic and more intuitive, a world where we do less and experience more. Your body has a language, and learning to decode it can empower you make the choices that deeply nourish your well-being. I would love to guide you through the process of discovering a practice that truly honors where you are.

I trust my clients to be in charge of their own practice. Whether you’re brand new to yoga or a seasoned practitioner, I know that you have within you everything that you need to uncover your innate power and resilience, and I would love to guide you into that potential.

I’m so glad you’re here. I can’t wait to work with you.

Working with Rachel has changed the way I notice how my body is moving, and taught me how to better listen to what my body is communicating.  I was able to go for a walk while wearing my giant 3yr old in a carrier on my back with ZERO pain for the first time in years!


Really, everyone should work with Rachel to become more in tune with their body’s movements. 

Rachelle Markham

Working with Rachel was wonderful. It’s always a gift to be able to focus on yourself and your body for an hour, so to have individualized private guidance was incredible. I honestly didn’t know what to expect at first, and I was surprised at how “little” we did that had such a big impact. The movements were small, but instead of avoiding things that weren’t working, those were what we focused on to increase mobility and decrease pain.


The sessions probably helped the most because that hands-on work was so important to make sure I was moving correctly, but having written notes I could refer to and “assignments” for home between sessions were important to keep momentum. I also appreciated how Rachel always started with some ideas, but was very flexible depending on what my body needed or could do that day. I knew that she didn’t have some external agenda or just a generic checklist to work from. She also accepted certain limitations of the season of my life with small kids instead of suggesting changes that won’t work for me in reality.


Our work together helped me greatly increase the mobility in my shoulders, and it made me more aware of how I position my body in bed so that I can decrease my back pain. I notice when I’m standing “wrong” and am working on adjusting my posture gradually. Just having the tools to address how I move and breathe has increased my awareness throughout the day. It was less like what I think of as yoga than I anticipated, but not in a bad way.


I’ve already suggested Rachel’s work to several friends who have experienced injuries or need to rebuild strength. Some people thrive with a structured plan and can work within its limits. I am not one of those people, and having Rachel guide me with her observations and insightful questions was much easier and more effective than other things I’ve tried. I can’t wait to have another opportunity to work with her!
