In 2001 Rachel completed a post-grad certificate in Workplace Wellness & Health Promotion. That same year she earned her Yoga Teaching certificate. She has been promoting wellness as a Hatha Yoga instructor ever since. She has led thousands of classes over the years for a wide variety of participants.
She chooses only those poses that she believes her participants can do properly and benefit from. She explains the benefits of each pose and uses verbal cues and physical adjustments to help every participant experience that benefit, be it a strengthen or a stretch.
Rachel has created and delivered many workshops on the subject, including a presentation at the Ontario Physical & Health Education Association Conference in Orillia.
Rachel regularly updates her skills with education in a variety of wellness modalities, like meditation and T'ai Chi.
In 2009 she studied Level 1 Therapeutic Touch (Krieger-Kunz Method) with Jitka Malec. In 2011 she earned the Essential Certificate in Thai Yoga Massage from the Lotus Palm school. In 2014 she was certified with Canfitpro as a Personal Trainer.
When she's not speaking at conferences or updating her professional skills Rachel likes to travel -- it was her introduction to Yoga while living in Israel in 1996 that changed her previously sedentary life. Now she helps others discover the joys of making a mind-body connection.
