Tell us a little about you. What’s your backstory, and how did you get into holistic wellness?

I’ve been practicing Yoga on and off since the age of 15. 10 years later I started to notice the difference when I skipped my practice in how I felt physically, emotionally & mentally.

I wanted to learn more so I signed up for a Yoga Teacher Training, with no intention of teaching. Around the same time I signed up to train as a Holistic Therapist and for a few years, I ran my first business alongside working in spas and volunteering for Macmillan as a Therapist.

It was quite draining physically and I knew I needed a change. So one morning I decided to take my Yoga practice outside in a local park and thought how nice it was. What if I offered a free weekly class during the summer.

Knowing how good a Yoga practice made me feel, I knew I wanted to help others have the same opportunity. So from there, I started teaching Yoga. Fast forward 10 years and I still love it and have started to incorporate Well-being coaching alongside my teaching.

What’s your preferred style of work?

I love teaching and working with people in groups & 1:1. I offer a range of ways to work with me online within my group membership, 1:1 coaching & teaching yoga.

Plus I run a few in-person workshops & retreats each year.

What is something you’re most proud of in your work?

Being a witness to clients’ transformations. I know what is possible and to see this unfold for each client and to hold them accountable to their goals is an incredible honour.

Where do you get most of your health info from (outside of your traditional study). Are there any podcasts you love, books you’d recommend, or newsletters you enjoy getting?



Where do you meet most of your clients?

Through client referrals, online marketing & collaborations via podcasts or IG lives.

If you could give one piece of advice to a new holistic practitioner, what would it be?

Follow your heart & honour your boundaries.

Where can people find you?

Hi, I'm Rachel.
Your Biz Bff + New Marketing Team.

I've been you. After graduating from business school and working at a digital agency, I left the 9-5 grind and went *all in* on studying Ayurveda, Yoga, Holistic Nutrition, and Reiki. I co-built a wellness brand for 3 years until I realized my magic isn't in being a practitioner, but in being the bestie, marketing team, and hype woman behind the scenes.
