Rachel attended her first yoga class aged 14 and instantly felt at home on the mat. She continued practicing, trying many styles of yoga until 2007 when she felt the need to share her love of yoga with others and become a teacher. Taking a 500 hour teacher training diploma with the British Wheel of Yoga, she qualified in 2009 and then taught classes in Warwickshire. On a trip to Goa at the end of 2009 Rachel practiced Ashtanga yoga with Basia Lipska and grew to love this dynamic form of yoga, which she now practices regularly.

Having recently relocated to Dorset, Rachel is now teaching Ashtanga yoga classes in Dorchester and Hatha and Ashtanga yoga, one to one, in Poole, Bournemouth and surrounding areas. She is also currently continuing her training in Ashtanga yoga, taking a 200 hour, Yoga Alliance Uk accredited course with Brian Cooper, in Bournemouth. Rachel has an MA (Hons) in Psychology and is a qualified Holistic Therapist.
