Rachel’s Philosophy

The lake is peaceful, the ocean is vast, but the river flows. It is this river-like flow of energy that stimulates an unobstructed path for the coursing of life force throughout our bodies.

My intention as a yoga teacher and Thai Yoga Therapist is to act as a catalyst for this flow of energy. I rely on my own practice of yoga and meditation to guide me as a teacher, so that what I say and what I do is as honest an expression as I am capable of. I rely on my intuition as a Thai Yoga Therapist to connect energetically with my client, syncing my breath with theirs and setting a rhythmic pace so that each session feels like a dance.

When we are able to get out of our heads and allow the mind to settle, the body relaxes and we can detect a subtle sensation of movement under the skin. This is the flowing of energy, and whether engaged in the physical practice of yoga, or passively aware in a Thai Yoga Therapy session, the benefit is ultimately the same; The systems of the body flow efficiently like the coursing of a river, the mind becomes calm as a mountain lake, and for a bit of time, we move out of the smallness of our daily lives and experience the vast ocean of wisdom that resides within.

“Place yourself in the middle of the stream of power and
wisdom which animates all whom it floats, and you are without
effort impelled to truth, to right and a perfect contentment.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
