Rachel took over our class (from our very experienced, long-standing yoga teacher) towards the end of her training x years ago. She has been an excellent teacher, pitching the lessons appropriately, with just the right balance of challenge and repetition, always with clear instructions and explanations, with tips on how particular asanas improve health in specific parts of the body, with detailed knowledge of anatomy and physiology, with gentle modifications for us when we need them and with the flexibility to accommodate newcomers to the class. Courses have progressed over the years, always being dynamic and interesting. As well as hatha yoga we practice breathing (pranayama), some meditation and relaxation. Rachel is an open, warm and kind teacher, always approachable and thoughtful about her students. It’s a pleasure to work with her – I feel very fortunate!
