A lifelong athlete, Rachel originally came to the mat during her undergrad years because it was an incredible workout. After practicing many different styles with many different teachers, she found a love for Vinyasa. She received her 200hr certification in January 2011 and has been teaching ever since. In May 2013 Rachel furthered her studies at Integral Yoga Institute and received her 85hr Prenatal Yoga certification. With the inspiration and support of her community, she created her own immersive yoga retreat company, Heart Thread Yoga, in May 2014. Rachel seeks to create a nurturing environment where students can learn and practice yoga in a caring and accessible way. Her classes are often filled with funny quips, laughter, hard work, and great music. She (immensely!) enjoys creating a space where EVERYONE can feel comfortable practicing yoga asana, with the belief that a balanced body = a balanced life.
