Rachel Jesien After moving to New York City to pursue a career in Musical Theater and Dance, Rachel Jesien’s path changed dramatically when complications arose due to her Scoliosis. She came to the Yoga Union Center for Backcare and Scoliosis to find relief and improve her alignment. After being so positively influenced by Alison West and Deborah Wolk, she decided to turn her attention to a career in teaching with the hopes of spreading the knowledge and clarity that she found in her own practice. She completed Alison’s 200 Teacher Training in 2012 and is excited to become an Elise Browning-Miller certified yoga teacher for Scoliosis. Her approach to teaching is incorporating all of the structural and subtle benefits to both Vinyasa and therapeutic classes. By applying her extensive dance and performing background as well as ever-curious attitude towards anatomy and therapy, Rachel constructs playful and integrated sequences that promote joy and focus within all of her students.
