Having practised yoga and Aerial work independently for many years Rachel finally realised that she could combine the two forms and in 2015 she looked around at training opportunities. She tried five different classes in various parts of the country and was amazed at how different each class was: one seemed about tricks and making amazing shapes with the body, one was like an upside-down aerobics class and one just got her completely tangled up in fabric! But eventually Rachel discovered the work of Ana Prada which worked at a much gentler, deeper level, allowing the body to unwind, strengthen and lengthen. Rachel was really pleased to have the chance to study on Ana’s teacher training course and continues to be guided by her.
Rachel is one of the very few accredited Vayu Aerial Yoga teachers in the UK.
