Testimonials

“I developed chronic back pain that was impacting my quality of life. I went to a number of doctors and practitioners of various kinds and wasn’t feeling any better. It was getting in the way of both work and play— especially the play with my three young kids who wanted Daddy time. At work as an executive, the flares of pain and stiffness were reducing my productivity and making it harder to travel. Through working with Rachel, I learned the power of good habits, where even a few minutes a day of the right kind of movement and mindfulness, of true self-care, can make a huge difference in chipping away at chronic pain. I’m feeling less pain, more energy, and a sense of empowerment— like I have control over my own health and wellness. Rachel is experienced, patient, empathic and non-judgmental, and she was good at developing a program that fit my unique needs. My time in yoga therapy with her has definitely put me on a better path, and I recommend it to anyone.”

“Yoga Therapy with Rachel has been transformative. With her guidance, I released painful patterns of holding and learned new ways of moving. I have become stronger in ways that are subtly but deeply empowering. I feel energized in my body and grateful for Rachel’s warm, personalized approach, which has been both healing and nourishing.”

“Rachel’s uniquely individual approach has given me control of my back health which had been a problem for years. I arrived with debilitating back pain, missing work days, and unable to lift reasonable weight without consequences. Worst of all, I had no understanding of what to do to make things better. Rachel spent significant time asking questions, listening and taking extremely detailed notes to build a picture of health. She then created a gentle program for me, and continued to customize and improve this over our entire time— based on feedback and my increasing goals. The progress was not overnight but over weeks with a careful combination of behavior changes and daily movements that reduced pain triggers, improved strength and gave me confidence to become more active. Six months later, this culminated in me getting back to what I love with a huge smile— playing recreational soccer, getting back on my surfboard (on small days!) and carrying both kids throughout Heathrow Airport after a long flight. Rachel continued to work on my overall health— always providing advice on sleep, managing energy throughout the day and dealing with stress. My daily routine became a ritual that I would not miss no matter where I am. I feel very lucky to have someone so incredibly knowledgeable on all health matters and so open minded in my corner— who genuinely wanted and worked to give me best chance possible to live a healthy physical and spiritual life.”
