book a class with rachel
Being born and raised in Fort McMurray, Alberta, there was only so much to do as a little girl. At the age of 5, Rachel went to her first gymnastics practice and fell in LOVE. From there she began competing and when she was 16 Rachel made the switch from Competitive Gymnast to Coach. Working with young athletes, knowing she had some influence on their lifestyle was something incredible. Rachel wanted to demonstrate that we are in charge of our own body and to own every part of it and share that energy with the world.
A year out of high school she was convinced she wanted to be a school teacher but long story short she has completed a diploma in Natural Nutrition and now beginning 4 years to become a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine + Acupuncture. Along the realization that she didn’t belong in the formal classroom, Rachel knew her classroom was the YOGA STUDIO! Rachel loved practicing as she grew up so teaching was next! In 2014 she began her training with the Sattva School of Yoga, and have loved each and every moment since then. She was touched by the ability to explore oneself from the inside out with this beautiful art.
Rachel can’t wait to meet you on the mat and start exploring all of your unique possibilities.
