Bali Yoga Retreat
24th - 30th of October 2022
This sacred place stole my heart in twenty sixteen, i've been leading retreats and trainings here ever since. I'm so looking forward to sharing it with you. There's something special about the welcome Bali offers.
It feels important to share my intention for these offerings with you.. I intent to create bespoke and heartfelt experiences that connect you back to yourself. I share the places and people that have and continue to inspire me on my individual journey. These experiences are deeply personal for me and a huge privilege. We do this by engaging the local practices and rituals, which connect you to the culture and richness of the land we visit. We travel to learn about the place that we visit, which teaches us so much about ourselves. These unique journeys are initiations into the aliveness of life! They are designed to wake us up to the beauty and sacredness within and without.
If you’re craving to come home to yourself, in the company of warm souls, this opportunity is for you.

Yoga Philosophy Course
5th September - 10th of October 2022
Dive into the richer contents of Yoga’s teachings. Understand the psychology, ways of practice and the goal of Yoga.
Our trainings are rooted in the idea that the work first begins with self-inquiry. By understanding our inner workings, we understand our relationship and role in the larger collective.
Our methodology is not just about intellectualizing a philosophy; we teach how to embody what we learn. So the connection and refinement that you cultivate become a part of how you live, show up for other people, handle adversity, care for yourself, and build a life filled with purpose and meaning. And for this, no prior knowledge is required!
*Recordings will be available for those who are unable to attend the live sessions.
Salutations to the moon
15th August 2022 - 7:00 - 8:30pm
The moon and her white Hughes offer us qualities that are cool, calmative, and cyclical. During this nourishing evening workshop, Rachel will guide you through sweet, freeing movements with a luxurious focus on the exhalation. This offers us the opportunity to cleanse and let go. You’ll experience the moon’s sound vibrations through mantra to guide your smooth transition mentally and spiritually into the calm and quiet moon energy. This exquisite energy will imbibe and remind your system of these feminine qualities, a remembrance. This practice will inspire both new and experienced yoga practitioners and teachers alike.
