My Teaching Style

 

“Despite how open, peaceful, and loving you attempt to be, people can only meet you as deeply as they’ve met themselves.”

-Matt Kahn

 
 
 

It is my honor to work with you as you partake on this journey of self-inquiry and self-discovery, letting go of limited beliefs about yourself, and coming more into alignment, strength and suppleness.

Training:

  • 200-hour yoga certification from Yoga Works studying with Sarah Bell and Chrissy Carter

  • Trauma-informed yoga with Liberation Prison Yoga with the Anneke Lucas

  • One-year course of in-depth anatomy training studying muscles and bones at Anatomy School For Yoga Teachers with Jason Brown.  

  • Intense study in the Jivamukti Method directly with its founders, David Life and Sharon Gannon at the Wild Woodstock Sanctuary as well as in NYC.

  • Numerous Vipassana meditation classes & workshops at Shambhala Center, studying with Ethan Nichtern, Bernie Weitzman and John Baker.

My Teaching Method:

I create a custom-made class, just for you, planning postures and sequences that address YOUR direct goals. I incorporate and teach all 8 limbs of yoga, especially pranayama (breath control), which calms the nervous system and extends ones quality and length of life.

Each session, I will guide you through asanas (postures) that open and strengthen you.

I have worked with:

the elderly, pre and post natal clients, people working through chemo treatments, those suffering from eating disorders (both anorexia/bulimia) students who have had knee and hip replacement surgery, those who are suffering from anxiety, training for marathons, beginners and advanced.

If you can breathe, your can practice yoga.

In addition to my private students, I also teach group classes at Equinox and at companies that include: L’Oreal, Ann Taylor, Allscope Media, Fresh Direct, Quirky, IT Instincts and the Educational Alliance.

I’ve taught inner city youth in the Bronx, people suffering from Dementia and at the New Dramatist’s “Playtime series” annually.

I would love to work with you.

 I can’t wait to meet you on the mat.

Love,

Rachel
