“A few years ago, when I decided that I wanted to start practicing yoga, I had the incredible fortune of working one-on-one with Rachel Bennett to learn the basics. I could never have known at the time how invaluable these decisions – both private lessons and working with Rachel – would be! I was unsure about my potential, as I had not exercised regularly in years and have always been hopelessly inflexible. But from the very beginning, Rachel was all optimism and encouragement. She did not see the same limitations I saw in myself, and as a result I felt empowered and uninhibited to try things that might have otherwise seemed too daunting. One of the most useful things Rachel did was to take the time to show me proper alignment for each pose we learned – and then take it to another level by explaining the connections between the outward physical stance and the inward physical/mental focus. I am supremely grateful for this knowledge, agenda. I really appreciated her gentle adjustments and attention to my particular needs – she was always modifying our lessons to what was going on with me on any particular day, Rachel is an absolutely delightful human being – gracious and sweet and unbelievably kind. I would be happy to speak personally, as a reference, with anyone who is considering becoming her pupil!” -Laura Boiling, Actress and mother

“Yoga classes with Rachel are the highlight of my week. She comes to each class with a thoughtful, personalized plan and then intuitively adjusts to what my body and mind need that day.

Rachel has supported me through these transitions by helping me trust my body and stay physically and spiritually connected to my true self. Rachel brings warmth, joy, and deep knowledge of yoga to her teaching.”
