Hi. My name is Rachel Kamin.
I admit it. I’m a yoga fanatic. I’m a fanatic for good reason, because I discovered several years ago that practicing yoga brings freedom from all kinds of suffering. I was anxious. I didn’t feel successful in my job. I was stressed out. My back and neck hurt. I couldn’t sleep. I wasted a lot of energy worrying about irrational things. I felt trapped and helpless. I needed help, and I found it in yoga.
Here’s what yoga can do for you. Yoga helps you to be more flexible to prevent and heal injuries. Yoga builds strength and tones muscles. Yoga helps to develop balance, both in the body and mind. Yoga is a mood booster, it helps you to think clearly, make better decisions, build confidence, balance your emotions, and live in the present moment. The list of the benefits of practicing yoga goes on and on, but the bottom line is that yoga can change your life. It changed mine.
Over that last few years, I have spent thousands of hours practicing yoga, attending yoga teacher trainings, in workshops and devouring yoga books so that I can share this life-changing practice with you. Whether you attend my public classes, come to me for yoga privates or Thai yoga bodywork session, my focus is to deliver the the best possible practice so that you can experience that extraordinary benefits of yoga too.
I received my 230-hour yoga teacher training at Yoga Center Minneapolis in 2010, and I am a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) through Yoga Alliance. I also completed Thai Yoga Bodywork’s 300-hour practitioner program in 2011 and I am a Registered Thai Technician (RTT) with Thai Alliance. I completed Yin Yoga training at Yoga Center Minneapolis in 2013, and I received my 500-Hr yoga teacher training from Devanadi Yoga in Sept., 2014, which includes a Himalayan Institute Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist certificate. I am currently finishing up a 300-Hr Yoga Therapy program through Yogsadhan.
