Rachael stumbled upon heated power vinyasa yoga on a friend’s recommendation in December 2002 and has been teaching in the Boston area since 2007. A former competitive swimmer, she was sure that her “high intensity” lifestyle and yoga would not mesh. After one class, she was in awe of the physical and mental breakthroughs she experienced. With a degree in Biology from Clark University and a background as a Scientist, she is fascinated by the intersection between science and yoga. Rachael is an E-RYT 500 and a 500 hour certified Baptiste teacher. She has trained extensively with Baron Baptiste and regularly assists Baron at trainings and programs. Rachael’s classes offer simple and concrete tools to access a deeply physical experience that will challenge your perspective of your world off of your mat and invite you to smile with her along the way.
