Meet Rachel G.

Welcome! I am a 200 hour Yoga Alliance certified yoga instructor with experience teaching in the studio, gym, and virtual settings. I also teach private sessions and workshops. I became a yoga believer when my employer arranged for yoga classes to be offered after work. I was a long-time runner who never took time to stretch and recover. I left my first yoga class with a lightness in my step, a renewed outlook on life, and a new connection with my breath. I began to practice daily, and made the decision to enroll in the Life, Inspired yoga teacher training in 2017. I studied with Sara Cain-da Costa and Michele Tampa Hoag, graduated in June 2018, and started teaching the very next week. I have taught all over the York County, SC area and have developed a passion for various styles of yoga. I became certified to teach restorative yoga in February 2020 and love to teach power vinyasa, restorative, slow flow, and deep stretch. Always a student, I am currently pursuing my 300 hour yoga certification, as well as certifications in Yin yoga and yoga therapy for anxiety.

I give back to the community by teaching karma classes, and by founding a yoga club at the area high school where I teach English and Creative Writing. In my classes, I incorporate a mindful variety of asana, pranayama, and meditation to help each student practice their own unique form of yoga. I’m also known for a fun playlist. Check out the Playlist of the Month tab above!

Please contact me if you have any questions, and check out my class schedule. I hope to see you on the mat!

Success! You're on the list.

This  was my first yoga class ever!  I’ve tried many of the poses at home by myself but you never know if you’re really practicing properly. I really enjoyed taking my class with Rachel, the pace was steady and I could easily watch as she transitioned from one pose to another.  Rachel described the name of each pose and gave suggestions on how to accommodate any special needs such as using blocks. After my sore muscles calm down I plan to take another class.  Thank you, Rachel.  🙂

Rachel’s Restore and Renew class is outstanding! Her voice is so soothing it melts all your problems away. You will become centered and ready to face any obstacles. After the class, you are bound to be renewed. I highly recommend this class!
