Her style is traditional Hatha Yoga with influences from body healing therapies such as Feldenkrais and Thomas Hannah Somatics, and promotes mindfulness for mental wellbeing. Rachael is trained in Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra – both of which promote profound rest and can be weaved into a normal session, or be the predominant practice if appropriate.
“I tried a couple of yoga teachers before choosing Rachael and it was one of the best choices I have ever made. Rachael is extremely professional and clearly knows her stuff but more importantly listens to you, learns how your body works, takes a genuine interest and is a very gentle, compassionate, beautiful woman. I love my sessions with her, I have learned so much and already can see and feel changes in my mind, body and spirit and others have noticed it too. I highly recommend Rachael to anyone who is looking for one to one sessions in yoga, you will not regret it.”
“I have been having one to one sessions twice a week with Rachael since being diagnosed with breast cancer. Rachael varied the sessions at each stage of my treatment, teaching me tools to relax and become a positive part of my own healing process, whilst also acknowledging and accepting a difficult journey. I was keen to keep active throughout and Rachael adapted the balance of postures and relaxation dependent on my needs. These sessions have been a great support during a difficult time and I would recommend Rachael to anyone who is in a challenging place with their health or otherwise.
When we work together, we will discuss your physical health, mental well-being and if it feels relevant to you, whatever is current in your life. Our energy, moods, relationships, work/life balance etc all ebb and flow, and as such your yoga practice should adapt and support it. We will catch up at the beginning of each session to see what your needs are.
If you need a block of sessions to focus on something specific, we will discuss in detail beforehand and over the course, develop a practice that works for you. When we’ve finished working together I will provide you with a written plan to enable you to continue practicing.
If you’re a complete beginner wanting to join a class, a 121 is a great introduction to Yoga and will give you confidence when you come to the class. You’ll learn how to breath to promote health and vitality, some of the main postures and understand how to move with your breath, mindfulness and relaxation techniques. About 3 sessions is usually enough.
