"The beginning class was a great way to learn the poses in a comfortable environment."


"Feel much more confident in participating in future classes. Last class was the best. I found the first class mechanical."


"Very informative and relaxed environment. Thank you :)"

About Your Instructor



RYT200 | STOTT PILATES® Certified, Level One |
TRX Suspension Trainer



Rachel began her yoga practice over 15 years ago, when she was living in San Francisco. She completed her Yoga Teacher certification in 2008 in Ann Arbor, MI.


Her teaching experience has included: Washtenaw Community College, Environmental Protection Agency, Huron Valley Swim Club, Chelsea Library, Chelsea Milling, Running Fit, Yoga Room, Chelsea, Dexter & Manchester Wellness Centers, as well as Community Support & Treatment Services. She has studied with Paul Grilley, Beryl Bender Birch, Jonny Kest, Desiree Rambaugh, Eric Schiffmann, David Swenson, Tias Little and Judtih Lasater.

She enjoys teaching all levels and various class types, from beginners through seniors, and believes that everyone can benefit from a yoga practice. They only need to find what works best for them, and Rachel is willing and able to help students find their way.




Her favorite poses are Plank & Savasana. Plank because it requires shoulder and core stability, and challenges the entire body. And Savasana because you have to totally surrender to the pose and the breath, fulfilling the intention of the asana practice by preparing the body and mind for meditation."

Mala bead bracelets are beautiful pieces of self-expression, and make lovely gifts, especially when they've been handmade with love and infused with the beautiful healing power of essential oils. Come and spend a delightful couple of hours making two bracelets - one to keep and one to give - with volcanic lava beads that can be permeated by fragrant and therapeutic essential oils from Young Living. You'll each choose a few focal beads and/or charms with which to customize your bracelets, and then we'll talk a little bit about and experiment with a selection of oils that will uplift, soothe, and heal. If there's time, we'll finish with a grounding meditation.



TBA! More information coming soon!
