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 follower 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.

In my classes, I incorporate a mindful variety of asana, pranayama, and meditation to help each student practice their own unique form of yoga. When I’m not teaching, you can find me out walking with my dogs or with a book in my hand!

Recently, I have partnered with the city of Rock Hill, SC to provide FREE yoga to our community. Check out the Yoga in the Park tab for more info! I also 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.

Please contact me if you have any questions, and check out my class schedule. Be sure to follow me on social media in case I have the opportunity to teach a class at the last minute. I hope to see you on the mat!

*For in-person yoga on Sunday, send a DM on Facebook or Instagram.

Success! You're on the list.

I was afraid of yoga before Rachel convinced me I should try it. She met me in my insecurity and went to my very first class with me. She has been my favorite yoga instructor since. Rachel showed me that yoga really is for everyone.

Bend and Brew with Rachel today was great. She gives clear instructions and assists (great for a beginner like me), and had an awesome playlist. I can’t wait for the next one!
