She is dedicated and extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Iyengar Yoga. Through the sessions I have experienced better understanding of my physical body and how to better align myself ..and learnt many more spiritual aspects for my personal practice.” Daisy

Not only for the young & flexible!

You do not have to be a particular age or level of flexibility to come to class. Being young and flexible is NOT a pre-requisite! Iyengar Yoga will slowly and safely improve your flexibility (which is important for joint mobility as well as heart and blood circulation) and change your posture for the better. It will also build strength, health and vitality where you need it most.

If on the other hand you are too flexible, the alignment-based yoga will help you to avoid injury and hyper-mobility so you can attain a stronger and more balanced body.

Men are as welcome as women. Many of Rachel’s clients are professional athletes or men who practice a lot of sports.  Yoga is non-competitive. Everyone is an individual in Rachel’s classes and you work according to your own capabilities. Yoga works not only on the physical body, but also on the mind and on personal development. In fact, health and wellness are considered a positive by-product of this ancient practice by many serious yogis, the main purpose of which being to still the mind.

“Rachel is a fantastic teacher. She has a deep understanding of the Iyengar method and is very empathetic. A dedicated teacher. If you live within striking distance of her classes and therefore able to attend on a regular basis, then you are fortunate indeed.”
