Rachel

Rachel has been teaching yoga since 2009.  She completed her teacher training at Downward Dog Studio in Toronto and has continued her education at a number of studios in Montreal with a long list of workshops and specialty classes.  She has also completed a certification in prenatal yoga.

Rachel finished a university degree in Health Science and before becoming a yoga teacher worked as a circus artist touring throughout North America and Europe with the Montreal based companies Cavalia and Cirque Eloïze.   Being on tour and performing every night can be pretty uprooting.  Practicing yoga always helped to find a sense of stability and balance.

Rachel teaches yoga with a global perspective looking to deepen her students understanding of their own bodies and of the different yoga postures.  She hopes her students will be able to bring what they have learned on the mat out into their everyday lives.
