Hola! My name is Rachel! Rachel PerezHere is a snapshot of my yoga experience and training!
My love of yoga began 15 +years ago…Looking for a way to decrease stress while increasing strength and flexibility, I was introduced to Bikram yoga and so began my love affair with yoga…While I always envisioned myself becoming a yoga teacher and sharing the many benefits of yoga, it took nearly 12 years before I would meet Mindy Piland of Yoga Time Studio and have the opportunity to be her student and teach under her guidance.
Within a year of teaching Vinyasa Flow yoga, and with the support of my family, I decided to pursue my 200 RYT with Tiffany Cruikshank/Yoga Medicine. Her teaching style taught me how to apply yoga as medicine and dive into the anatomical and philosophical themes of this ancient practice. This training ignited my flame and desire to know more! I am currently pursing my 500 hr certification with Yoga Medicine and constantly seeking teachers that can help me improve my own practice thus translating into me becoming an even better teacher for you . I know first hand that through a dedicated yoga practice transformation of the body, mind and spirit can and will happen. Remaining flexible on the mat directly translates to flexibility in life.

Additionally, last summer I had the privilege of adding SUP Yoga instructor to my resume after training with the talented and inspiring Amelia Travis, owner and founder of Stoked Yogi. Most recently I’ve added a Level 1 Paddle Fit Certification into the mix, allowing me to expand on my paddling abilities and share this love with all of you!
