Rachel discovered her love and passion for yoga many moons ago during her previous life as a Youth and Community ‘Street Worker.’
With a life long love of sport and being active, 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 full time passion and full time career choice! It became clear that being a yoga teacher and youth worker had many similarities… Supporting and guiding people to explore and develop their full potential!
Rachel loves to encourage playfulness and wonder within her yoga practice, her classes and life. She has been teaching full time since 2006, hosting her own retreats and exploring the world. Rachel is from The Midlands in the UK and has lived in India. She is now enjoying the calm and peaceful lifestyle in beautiful Fuerteventura and loving teaching at Azulfit.
Rachel’s commitment to empowering those around her is inspirational and her ability to form lasting and genuine connections with people and raise them up is a true gift, and we are honoured to have her on the team.
You can expect to practice anything from Hatha to Vinyasa to Yin to Partner Yoga and all with a few giggles along the way.
