I enthusiastically welcome all identities, ages, bodies, and experience levels to the mat. I’m a joyful, conscientious, and spiritual instructor. I love creating and holding space, and working with newcomers. My group classes and private sessions are filled with invitations (not expectations) to move with intention, connect movement and breath, play, discover, and release.
I lead Gentle, Restorative, Yin, and All Levels Flow group yoga classes for adults as an instructor and sub at Yoga Heights and Embrace Yoga DC. I assist Restorative+Reiki class at Embrace Yoga DC. Scroll down the page for my schedule.
I also teach yoga for children in schools 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 takes the time to understand each practitioner’s needs and, more importantly, comfort level of beginners, helping them overcome any discomfort in the awkwardness of learning new things in a room with various skill levels. – Taryn S.
Rachel’s more relaxed style and tone, and injections of humor made classes at the end of a long day fun. 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.
