About your teacher
Rachel discovered her love and passion for yoga many moons ago during her previous life as a Youth and Community ‘Street Worker..’
With a lifelong love of sport Rachel found that Yoga not only made her feel amazing physically but it did something magic to her mind and gave her the tools she needed to cope with the pressures of her job. It wasn’t long before yoga became her passion and full-time career choice! Rachel is known and loved for her genuine and compassionate teaching style, clear instruction, and engaging sense of humor. She is a teacher, friend, and source of laughter and joy in all that she does. When she is not on the mat or upside down, you can find her working with Khusi Hona, a charity close to her heart using education to empower and lift local Goans into entrepreneurship.
