I have had Rachel as a yoga teacher and attended her weekly class at Ferry Centre, Oxford over a 10 year period. I have watched her develop from a tentative student into an extremely competent and helpful yoga teacher. As one of Rachel’s older members I have to thank her for helping me maintain a good standard of physical fitness and flexibility. She has helped and encouraged me through postures relevant to my hip and thigh infirmities and to maintain body strength – vital as one ages. Rachel has a gentle approach, always mindful of an individual’s difficulties and adjusts postures appropriately. She does not follow a set pattern and as students we are always introduced to a variety of postures and this makes the class interesting. Rachel is a friendly and approachable and extremely competent yoga teacher who clearly loves what she does – and this transfers itself to her students.
