I am a physical fitness nut; a marathon runner; a triathlete; an endorphin junkie; and a very busy attorney in a stressful practice.

I had always thought of yoga as something like meditation. No time for that. But when an injury sidelined me for several months my physical therapist recommended a yoga session with Rachel. What could I lose?

From the very first yoga session with Rachel, I was hooked. The benefits of yoga became self-evident immediately. I couldn’t believe the physical challenges to which this quiet, calm, easy-going yoga instructor gently pushed me. I couldn’t believe the utter relaxation that followed every session. Soon I was showing my yoga poses and positions to friends and co-workers, and getting them into sessions with Rachel, all of whom were likewise amazed by the benefits of Rachel’s instructions.

Rachel is not only a great yoga instructor, but a certified Thai massage therapist as well. Depending on a student’s physical condition Rachel may mix different yoga styles with certain Thai message techniques. Rachel tailors each session to the particular needs of her clients.

I leave every session with Rachel both invigorated and relaxed, ready to take on the world!

During the weeks of Yoga therapy, my pain […]
