Rachel began developing her yoga practice in 2011. She started practicing as a way to prevent injuries, stay fit and find stress-relief. What began as a more physical practice soon developed into a full-blown spiritual awakening. Rachel quickly became obsessed with all things yoga and holistic healing. She practiced vinyasa, hatha, power, yin and kundalini yoga and began studying yoga anatomy, chakras, energy medicine and Ayurveda.
In 2015 she completed her 200-hour YTT at Inspirit Yoga Studio in Orlando. She soon began teaching and working the front desk part-time while finishing her Bachelors degree in Exercise Science.
