The word "Yoga" comes from the Sanskrit word


which means

"to unite or integrate".

The goal of all yoga is to integrate the mind, body and spirit.



Practising yoga

should be a gentle

transformative process.


Yoga can be safely done

by everyone.



The Sanskrit word


means non-violence, non-harming, non-injuring.


It is an important concept in yoga.






All “live” classes, workshops and courses are suspended due to the Corona Virus.


However I am currently running classes and courses via Zoom.

Recorded videos are available to my regular students.

“I went to two of Rachel's classes at the IYN festival in 2017.    Amongst many impressive teachers, her classes stood out. I found my mind calmed and my body opened by one yin and one hatha session, both of which were taught with compassionate and generous spirit.

Thanks Rachel.”
