Rachel first stepped into her first yoga class in the Fall of 2004 in search of a new challenge and had
no idea of the life changing journey she was embarking upon! Not only is she hooked on the physical
challenge, she is constantly amazed at the clarity, calm and acceptance the practice delivers every time
she steps onto her mat.
Rachel first trained to be an assistant at Amazing Yoga in Pittsburgh in the Fall of 2006 and subsequently
completed her 200 hour teacher training with Amazing Yoga in March of 2008. In June 2010, she
completed her Level 1 training with Baron Baptiste. Rachel has also participated in workshops with
Gregor Singleton, Natasha Rizopoulos, Claire Este-McDonald, Jonny Kest and Bryan Kest.
Rachel graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in finance but left the business world
in 2010 to pursue her love of teaching yoga. She is so incredibly grateful to be able to share her passion
with her fellow yogis every day! Rachel also enjoys working as a Wish Granting and Special Events
volunteer for the Make A Wish Foundation. She lives with her yogi husband, Brent, in the northern
suburbs of Pittsburgh.
