I’m a joyful, spiritual, and socially conscious practitioner. Yoga is a practice, a way of being, I endeavor to honor as I share it with others. I enthusiastically welcome all identities, bodies, and experience-levels to practice with me. I love holding space and working with newcomers. Both group and private sessions are filled with invitations (not expectations) to move with intention, connect movement and breath, play, discover, and release. This is your practice. Yoga is the teacher.

I lead Gentle, Restorative, Yin, and All Levels Flow group classes at Yoga Heights and Embrace Yoga DC.  I assist Restorative+Reiki class at Embrace Yoga DC. I sub various class formats at Honest Soul Yoga (Falls Church and West Springfield).

Schedule below.

I also led classes for children in schools, and parents and children in community centers, through Breathing Space. I lead sessions on-site at companies for their staff and clients, and conduct home practice with individuals at their residence and mine.

Rachel has a lovely, accepting, and flexible way of teaching — love it. And she’s funny! – Alesia R.

Rachel takes the time to understand each practitioner’s needs. – Taryn S.

She has a thoughtful manner in her interactions with us students that I very much appreciated. – Rina R.

As a beginner I appreciate that Rachel is always enthusiastic, patient, and always ready with helpful tips. – Hayden H.

Rachel’s approach…is inspiring, constructive and, perhaps counterintuitively, soothing at the same time. She…addresse[s] the “intention” of an asana…that thought alone – setting aside accomplishment for intention – stays with me in every class and allows me to give myself the grace to progress.  – Tammy E.
