Rachel G has been a certified yoga teacher since 2003. She completed her first teacher training at Kalani Honua on the Big Island of Hawaii, where her teacher inspired her to use Yoga as a way to develop a deeper understanding of ourselves.

Rachel has continued expanding through her experiences in Hawaii as well as abroad- traveling and teaching in India, New Zealand and Bali where she has deepened her practice through continued education in Hatha, Ashtanga and Vinyasa styles. Learning and understanding the collaboration that the breath, body and mind all create, has become her mission. Her knowledge doesn’t just stop with yoga. Rachel comes from a background of dance and performance, figure skating, and fire dancing were the two of many talents she has traveled around the world with . She also has  completed a intro training as a Pilates instructor.
