Rachel Dewan

Certified Anusara Yoga Teacher, E-RYT500

First and foremost I am a seeker.  For as long as I can remember, I have read, studied, journaled, listened, practiced, and prayed. In my adult life this led me to yoga where, from my first class in college in 1995, I experienced a feeling of connection, support and inclusions that felt like coming home to my own heart. Yoga is a path of lifelong learning and practice that has helped to shape my life in all aspects, both on and off the mat. I have been activity teaching since 2003 and have completed several teacher trainings with some of the world’s most renowned yoga teachers. In addition to Anusara I have had the blessing of studying and practicing many different styles of yoga, including Vinyasa, Iyengar, and Kundalini.  In addition to a regular schedule of classes I teach Yoga Teacher Trainings, Anusara Immersions, Private and Small Group Sessions, a wide variety of workshops, as well as writing a yoga blog.

By practicing Yoga we connect with our natural state and relax to the freshness of the present moment, regardless of what that moment may bring. Come practice to realize that awakening is not about escaping from the world we live in, but instead is about bringing our practice to every aspect of our lives: work, play, relationships, and much more.
