“I’ve spent over 30 years sitting at a computer on a daily basis and even though I also exercised routinely over the course of those years, the sitting for prolonged periods of time coupled with long and stressful driving commutes, began to manifest as chronic pain in my body.  When I finally (and fortunately) met Rachel, I had developed painful, limited range of motion in my left shoulder, as well as chronic low back pain.  Through her unique blend of physical and yoga therapy, together with her compassion, patience and insightful ability to assess both the physical and emotional roots of my pain, Rachel designed a program that completely alleviated the limitation of movement and pain in my shoulder.  She also taught me how to help myself so that I am now able to mitigate the back pain on my own which, needless to say, has been very empowering.    I have come to know and admire Rachel as a knowledgeable and gifted teacher – so much so that I am now participating in her yoga teacher training and look forward to becoming certified in the fall of 2011! I am so grateful to have met Rachel and to spend time in her presence is truly a gift in my life.”
