Rachel’s love of yoga started in Christchurch, New Zealand and followed her to London and then Melbourne. As a research scientist she was attracted to the “science” of Iyengar Yoga. Initially, the yoga asanas (poses) didn’t come naturally but when she started teacher training in 2004 she utilised the techniques that Mr Iyengar has given us (props, sequencing and timings) to experiment with her body.
She obtained her Iyengar Yoga certification in Oct 2009. She regularly trains with Senior Iyengar teachers in Australia and has studied with the Iyengars in Australia and at their institute in India.
