What others are saying


Tara Goedjen

Yoga teacher and PHD Student

Rachel Nokes doesn’t just teach the practice of yoga, she lives it. She is the sort of person who radiates peacefulness and love. I was first attracted to Rachel’s yoga classes because of her knowledge, intuitive guidance, and relaxing presence, and she has continued to inspire me to this day. The Illawarra is very lucky to have her!

When I started yoga therapy, there were many excuses with why I wasn’t feeling my best. I wasn’t doing all the things that I thought I “should” be doing and the guilt was making it hard to break through the cycle of feeling exhausted. Then I went to see Rachel for Yoga Therapy and it broke the cycle. After the first session, I felt excited and Rachel designed a simple practice that suited the time I had available, which made it easy to fit in. When I slip out of the habit, my yoga practice is something that I can quickly return to and feel the benefits instantly. Thank you Rachel for making regular yoga practice accessible and achievable!
