Rachel first stepped into Amazing Yoga in the Fall of 2004 in search of a new challenge and had no idea of the life changing journey she was embarking upon! Not only is she hooked on the physical challenge, she is constantly amazed at the mental clarity, calm and acceptance the practice delivers every time she steps onto her mat.
Rachel first trained to be an assistant at Amazing Yoga in the Fall of 2006 and subsequently completed her 200-hour teacher training with Karen and Sean in March of 2008. In June 2010, she completed her Level 1 training with Baron Baptiste. Rachel has also participated in workshops with Gregor Singleton, Natasha Rizopoulos, Claire Este-McDonald, Jonny Kest and Bryan Kest.
Rachel graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in finance, but left the business world in 2010 to pursue her love of teaching yoga. She is so incredibly grateful to be able to share her passion with her fellow yogis at AY every day! Rachel also enjoys working as a Wish Granting and Special Events volunteer for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. She lives with her yogi husband, Brent, in Wexford.
