Certified Yoga Instructor
I began my yoga journey at the age of 15 when I was looking for stress relief; ever since, it has become a huge part of my daily routine that has overall changed my life in such a positive way. I am currently certified in Prenatal Yoga and Warriors' PTSD Training through YogaFit. I am on the way to becoming certified with my 200-hr RYT: I have completed levels one and two, also through YogaFit which have both given me a strong foundation for my yoga practice as well as teaching. I am looking forward to bringing health and wellness into each practice and helping others begin or further their yoga journey.
Rachel's Classes, Services, and Pricing:
Basic yoga postures and alignment principles are taught and used as the foundation for this class. Using breath linked to movement will allow the body and mind to strengthen. A short meditation will be practiced at the end of class. Great for beginning students as well as those who would like to revisit the basics or just to slow the pace down. Must be able to get up and down from the floor unassisted.
Yoga Flow/Total Body Flow/ Rising to Shine
Yoga Flow is a vigorous yoga class that moves through poses with the pace of your breath. The class is designed for all levels with modifications offered to take the class at your own level and ability on any given day. The sequence of each class will build towards a challenging peak pose(s) to stimulate both the beginner and advanced practitioner as well as the kid at heart. This class will be sweaty and fun and will challenge students of all levels.
New to yoga, or looking to get back to the basics? Yoga Fundamentals provides both the beginning student and the seasoned practitioner a place to focus on common postures and transitions, that lay the foundation for yoga. Expect clear instruction and individual assistance, as well as music to keep the environment light and playful. You don't need to be able to touch your toes in this class… all you need is an open mind & heart.
Meditation is a practice of concentrated focus upon visualization and your breath in order to increase awareness of the present moment, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and enhance personal and spiritual growth. This meditation takes place on the floor.
