My mission is to show you how to love yourself and others through self acceptance working with yogic principles.
I’ve battled the evil powers of addiction, low self esteem and low self confidence and I’m winning! I want to share all I have learnt with you.
Growing up I never felt I was good enough, I felt I had to prove myself for people to love me. I didn’t know how to love myself. I learnt to use alcohol and shopping to disguise my own self hatred. I was manipulated in numerous unhealthy relationships as I searched for true love. Little did I know that it was inside me all that time. I fought the evils of low self esteem, low self confidence, no self love and I won.
I am a recovering addict having lived with my addiction for more than 20 years. I have been sober since December 2016.
Yoga helped me to find my purpose in life and continues to guide my life. I became a teacher in 2011 and have since then I have owned 2 studios and I currently co-own Yoga Beach House where I host retreats, classes and trainings year round.
200 hour Yoga Teacher Training - this is a foundational Yoga Alliance yoga teacher training course which will give you all you need to start teaching yoga that takes place over 20 days at my lodge and studio at Yoga Beach House or part time with a mixture of on site and online training over 20 weeks.
21 Day Sobriety Challenge - Online, self guided audio program designed to help you give up or take a pause from alcohol.
Being a yoga teacher can sometimes be quite a lonely profession with no-one to bounce ideas off or get support from. Having worked as a teacher on my own since 2011, setting up and running my studio and then retreat home, I have a wealth of experience to offer you. Teachers have worked with me on long term projects, business development, lulls in creativity, or more personal issues such as motivation, lack of self belief, intention setting or life coaching. Mentoring takes place in person or via video conferencing. Spaces are limited, please apply here, explaining your reasons for wanting to work with me.
"...I have learned how to really care of myself and take responsibility for myself. I have learned how to set healthy boundaries for myself and others. I have learned to accept myself on a much deeper level. I have learned that it’s OK to sometimes slow down. ... Rachel has this thing about her that after speaking to her you feel totally calm and held. ... She honestly changed my life."

I like the approach you use in yoga and personal development to guide and support any situation and need. I like the way you stay neutral, natural and fair. I like the help you offer while staying professional, protected, graceful and elegant.
I have learned how to set healthy boundaries for myself ....to accept myself on a much deeper level ....that it’s OK to sometimes slow down. Rachel has this thing about her that after speaking to her you feel totally calm and held. She honestly changed my life.
Thanks to my time with Rachel I feel that I can achieve a life of my dreams, and I know I have the skills and power to make my dreams a reality. I am eternally grateful for everything that happened. What you are doing is so inspirational. I cannot thank you enough.
Rachel is incredibly committed to her students, course and yoga (of course), to give so much to the course both emotionally, and in terms of sheer hours is amazing.
The transformation you initiated and the process you set me up for is helping me to be much more with people, because I’m more with myself. I never thought things would start to happen so quickly! Thank you Rachel. Not many people have changed my life as much as you did and still do.
Rachel was supportive and understanding while maintaining discipline and providing confident guidance
Rachel gives a rich and complete teaching of Yoga that she transmits with great love. I became a yoga teacher in a privileged setting where love, solidarity and respect are the key words and where teaching is as intense as it is effective. I learned a lot more than I could have imagined and feel like part of their community. A community in which I put my lessons into practice and to whom I was able to teach, during the training. I am eternally grateful to her.
Rachel was always there for me, supporting me in every moment as teacher, mentor and friend. Rachel has the talent to make yourself grow beyond all limits, find and develop into the best, strongest and most beautiful you
