Rachel has been practicing yoga for 7 years, first stepping on the mat in 2014. Rachel has a significant movement background with 16 years of ballet training. In addition, she holds an Associates of Science degree for Physical Therapist Assistant as well as a Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science and Sport Performance. After several years of clinical PT practice, she completed both her 200-Hour and 300- Hour teacher training at Down Under School of Yoga in Brookline, MA. Rachel is able to combine her clinical knowledge of the body with yoga asana; leading her students through a practice of purposeful movement patterns. Her Slow Flow classes include Iyengar alignment within a Vinyasa flow, offering a multitude of variations and modifications. Her classes include the use of props to help support and sustain a healthy yoga practice, allowing time to mindfully move in and out of postures.
When she is not on her mat, Rachel enjoys spending time in the wild. With a passion for hiking and rock climbing, she has found steadiness of mind, even in physically and mentally challenging scenarios. She attributes her mental strength as she scales 300 foot rock walls to her yoga practice, which has both humbled and informed her on and off the mat.
