"I stopped doing yoga at the beginning of 2017 due to local classes causing me pain. I promised myself I wouldn't start again until I saw a certified teacher. I've never regretted finding Rachel. She is very patient, kind, silly but stern when needed. Her life is full of color and passion that shows every day that she practice. And I enjoy being able to spend my time growing as a student with her. "

Yoga Therapy

Disease and injury often come when things are out of balance in our lives. Our body naturally seeks homeostasis, a relatively stable equilibrium. When we override messages we've received over time (pain, stress, sleep problems, etc.) then an injury or illness can be a reminder to pay attention and make some changes in our life. The definition of therapy is that which helps treat or heal disease. Injuries and disease, however, aren't always strictly physical. Human beings are a complex amalgam of physical form, intellect, emotions and energy. True healing comes from addressing obstacles and impediments in our life at all levels. Yoga therapy in the Iyengar tradition uses specific postures (asana) and optimal breathing to effect the health and healing potential of the entire organism. Some of the areas that Rachel works in include:

  • Hips & Lower Back
  • Neck & Shoulder
  • Knees
  • Digestive issues
  • Scoliosis
  • Depression & Anxiety
  • Neurological conditions (i.e. migraines, car accidents)
  • Women's Health (fertility, pregnancy, menstrual disorders, menopause)
