I am a Breathworks Mindfulness Teacher.
I teach Mindful Yoga, Mindful Meditation, Mindful Movement & MBSR. I have been teaching in educational and community settings for over twenty years. I was trained in Valencia, Spain, close to where I lived in Andalucia for ten years experiencing the excellent tuition of my teacher Kathy Ward, at the Mindful Academy International. I have a BSc in environmental science and I am a certified RYT registered Mindful Yoga and Mindful Yin Yoga teacher and QMT, Qualified Mindfulness Teacher in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction & Breathworks Mindfulness for Health. I am dedicated to putting mindful body work and mindful meditation strategies into the hands of students and I love sharing their transformational impacts with students in all stages of life.
Mindful body work is a way of life and a way of living more fully and mindfully where each student learns how to bring themselves to a greater place of balance and ease. We’re not all built the same, we all have unique conditioning and needs and Mindfulness embraces and celebrates these differences. Specializing in teaching you how to empower yourself using yoga tools, including asana (postures), pranayama (breathing), meditation and self-study allowing you to live at your fullest potential, regardless of health status. Classes utilize restorative breath and meditative movement as a means of empowering individuals to create a practice that best serves you!
In each class, mindful techniques address the fluctuating needs of daily life, by teaching you how to meet yourself where you are and how to adapt your own practice, to work gentle or strong, to create greater balance and ease as you need it most. Yoga classes meet a full spectrum of student needs, including gentle and therapeutic series and athlete specific classes. Classes are appropriate for both beginners and seasoned practitioners. Most classes are especially helpful for those living with chronic health conditions, such as Multiple Sclerosis, chronic pain and chronic stress or anxiety. Mindful Yoga, Mindful Movement & Mindful Meditation exists for YOU to discover how to use mindful tools to live more fully and mindfully, both on and off the mat! We fully adhere to the UK Network for Teachers Based on Mindfulness Good practices for teaching courses based on Mindfulness and we continue to develop teaching skills through a supervised pathway with The Mindful Academy International, Valencia.

Yoga Retreat Mojácar

This is my second time at the retreat. I enjoyed it very much. The beach yoga at the start was lovely but hiccup with the hotel was disappointing. Rachele is an excellent teacher and despite some of my reservations about mindfulness I also enjoyed the sessions I attended. Rachele explains postures in detail to enable me to get the maximum from yoga. Really lovely retreat.

Mindful retreat 2019

I had a wonderful time in Mojacar at the mindful retreat 2019. Rachele is a fantastic teacher and I enjoyed all of her sessions. The other teachers and classes along with the planned trips were also amazing. Mojacar is a beautiful place and to top it all off, I got to share the experience with amazing people.

Perfect balance of yoga and mindful meditation

Rachel's delivery of mindful yoga is a perfect way to practise peaceful meditation and yoga. Her classes are suitable for all regardless of experience, fitness, health or age. I love the calming atmosphere she creates which helps you to feel relaxed and confident in your own ability to practise yoga. I joined her class as a way to help me through a period of depression and anxiety. The techniques I have learnt during her sessions have aided my recovery and help to bring balance and calm into my life. Highly recommended.

Friendly and welcoming

Since attending Rachele's class I feel more confidence and aware. Having an illness has made it more bearable since attending her classes, which are non judgemental, very friendly and welcoming, she explains why and how clearly., her classes never make you feel it's too much trouble to help gain the correct position etc. I would highly recommend rachele to any one whether a beginner or advanced.

Mindful yoga

I was a beginner and given a very warm welcome. Rachel explains everything and helps you make adjustments in your movements to help you maximise your learning and experience. I loved it and it's really providing me with some coping mechanisms in the busy life I lead. Rachel's also let me rearrange classes when I've note been able to make it. Excellent friendly service from someone who cares about people

Rachele is fabulous!

Since practising with Rachele, I have fell in love with yoga. Her way of teaching is inspiring. She is encouraging and no two classes are the same. Her classes are adaptable for all levels and her voice guides you to a deep sense of relaxation.
I highly recommend her classes for all abilities.

Rachele is simply one of the best yoga teachers

Rachele is one of the best yoga teachers I have experienced. she adjusts her classes to meet the needs of the people in the room encouraging everyone. she checks and adjusts your position if needed and will give alternatives if it's too much of a stretch. Whether a beginner or experienced you will feel comfortable and at ease and come away feeling relaxed, mindful and stretched

Peggy Bailey’s Feedback

20 years ago I practised group Yoga every week. Recently I attended a group Yoga class and found I was unable to do some the movements and poses, that is when I began the one-to-one classes with Rachele. At my initial assessment, it was evident a chair was my best option for most poses. Rachele was very patient with me as she showed me what to do. My sessions were beneficial because: I suffer with arthritic pain in my shoulder which causes tension though-out my whole body.


I was shown how to relax my shoulders and exercise them. I enjoyed the sessions because sometimes I don’t understand at first what I am asked to do and Rachele took her time to show and explain several times until I grasped and did the poses correctly. I try to practise my exercises every morning to set me up for the day’s activities. Thank you!

Fabulous Project!

We think the 'Bedar Eco Centre' and all that Raquel organises to introduce & educate people towards living, thinking & reflecting on a more environmentally way of living, is a such a huge step forward for an area of Spain that is already so spiritually minded but just needs a little more support. If you want a little extra support then then give us a shout. Om Shanti, Om Blessings ॐ X

May we see no competition but instead: allies, supporters, buddies and champions! Corrina Gordon Barnes (2014). Thank you for all your support...if you continue with the spirituality ...I'll continue with the mindfulness! X

Amazing. Dee from Mojacar

As a new comer to Yoga I have found the whole experience enjoyable and enlightening. With Rachel,s guidance and expertise I am now realizing how my mind and my body connect.

Not having practised yoga for the last 30-odd years, Rachele was the perfect re-introduction for me. I was not looking for meditational yoga as this is beyond my attention span. With patience and understanding, she has assessed my physical capabilities and taught me how to keep my body in balance. I have been reminded how to breathe purposefully and focus in order to benefit from the asanas we have practiced together. For the future, I intend to participate in the classes on a regular basis. Thank you again Rachele.

From Shirley of Cuevas del Almonzora

I found the session I had with Rachele very interesting
and relaxing. She certainly knows her subject. Also I found that she has a superb sense of humour which is instantly relaxing to the pupil.
