Spiritual Director & Health Coach
Rachel is on maternity leave as of the end of January 2018. We wish her all the best as she embarks on the adventure of motherhood, and look forward to her return to practice, when she is ready!
Rachel did her first stretching on the soccer field and track. After years of hard-impact sports, she found yoga and discovered the physical, mental, and spiritual benefits from slowing down her body and mind on the mat. She still likes a good run, but cannot do it without yoga! Rachel loves guiding students as they befriend their bodies and find balance, grace and healing on their mat. Rachel completed a 225-hour yoga training through Holy Yoga in 2012 and has been teaching a Vinyassa-Hatha style since then.
Rachel also guides students in mindfulness off the mat through health coaching and spiritual direction. She believes that we all have the inner wisdom to know what our body needs; we are just often disconnected from it. She teaches women to restore this connection to create confidence, peace, and freedom so they can feel at home in their body. This process is not about deprivation or struggle, but about listening to your body, paying attention to your unique needs, and making sustainable lifestyle and nutritional changes. She is trained by the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (2014) and Sustainable Faith (2017).
When not teaching or coaching, you can find Rachel on a trail in the Appalachian foothills with her husband and goldendoodle.
