Rachel Foster – E-RYT200, RPYT
Rachel discovered yoga in her teens and had an on again off again relationship with yoga until she reached 30. While studying for an Advanced Diploma of Holistic Counselling, yoga was explored as a healing modality. This is when Rachel realised that there was so much more to yoga than stretching and flexibility and found that she wanted to learn as much as possible about it. Rachel did an Advanced Diploma of Yoga Teaching at AYA and that was where she met the gorgeous Emma! Rachel then went on to study 200 hours in Family Yoga covering ages and groups from pre and post natal, toddlers, right through to teens. Rachel is not happy unless she is learning and recently completed her RYT teaching training at Moksha Academy of Yoga and 100 RYPT (pre and post natal accreditation) teacher training with Bliss Baby Yoga. She is currently working towards her accreditation to be a Relax and Renew® teacher after recently completing level 1 Restorative Yoga teacher training with Judith Hanson Lasater.
Yoga has completely changed Rachel’s life and she knows it can do the same for others hence her passion in wanting to share it. Rachel loves the fact that yoga can be adapted to every one of all ages and walks of life and loves watching the progression of students both on and off the mat.
Rachel is so excited to be a part of the Moksha team and she looks forward to teaching you!
What/Who inspires me?
“The students, lecturers and teachers of Moksha inspire me and of course Emma. To see how far Emma has come in a relatively short amount of time greatly inspires me as does her thirst for knowledge and the sharing of her knowledge. I am also inspired by the teachers who have passed and helped to bring yoga to the West such as Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, K. Pattabhi Jois and BKS Iyengar and the teachers that are still with us such as Judith Hanson Lasater, Ally Hamilton, Sadie Nardini, Patricia Walden and Shiva Rea also greatly inspire me.”
What Moksha means to me?
“Moksha really is a second home to me. I started as a student and feel so blessed to now be a teacher here. Surrounded by incredible students and teachers make teaching here a dream come true. Moksha has such a lovely energy to it and that only comes about with the passion shared by all that visit.”
