What my clients are saying:
Rachel’s classes are somehow both “easy” and challenging at the same time, in a good way. Her teaching style is very accessible.
Rachel has a vast and deep knowledge of the human body, which I don’t see often. She doesn’t assume she knows your body better than you, yet she gives lots of options to help you find what will fit and gently guide you to the intended movement.

I enjoyed Savasana at the end of Rachel’s class. I reached an alpha state.
Rachel is the rare yoga teacher who emphasizes the importance of finding a sense of ease and joy while doing yoga, and to respect one’s own body and limits.

I like that you have transitioned your in studio class to virtual without losing the feeling of serenity and calm that I always feel when practicing yoga with you. Your Gentle class is a perfect combination of examining breath, stretching and relaxation. And I really love your poems as we end our practice.
I often feel rushed in classes, but not yours. I also love the options, and how you build on a theme.
Rachel provided encouragement and helpful suggestions for modifications to movement and poses that were hindered by any particular issues. I deal with frozen shoulder syndrome, bursitis in my hips and arthritic joints in my hands and feet. It was nice to have the chance to explore optional positioning and experience good results.
I have enjoyed the focus on small movement and its power for strengthening, and visualizing parts of my body that I have not paid attention to.
I always love Rachel’s approach to yoga. She gives super clear verbal guidance that makes it work almost as well online as in person.
