"Rachel's classes will uplift you, nourish you and enliven your soul"



I’ve always struggled with the question;

"What yoga do you teach?"

To me it is just Yoga.

I heard this acronym when listening to a talk it was shared with the speaker.

Desikachar wrote it on a napkin for her one day.



Very intimate and complete

 In body, mind and spirit

 Never hurting yet creative 


Yoga that is totally authentic 

Over centuries and centuries

 Given by great sages 

Adapted to one and all

~ TVK Desikachar
