Rachel has been engaged in various meditation techniques and embodied practices from a young age. She trained avidly in her youth and collegiate years as an athlete, which ingrained a sense of mindful awareness, embodiment, and an appreciation for "tribe" and community into her life. After graduating college, beginning her teaching career, and becoming certified as a Zumba instructor, Rachel began studying and immersing herself in a wide variety of social and creative dance forms from various cultures. She began to realize that dancing is a perfect mindful avenue through which we can cultivate awareness as well as explore and heal our relationships to ourselves, others, and our communities. Rachel enjoys weaving together her practices of meditation, mindfulness, dance, yoga, personal discovery, travel, and community building. She believes that the lessons we take away from the dance floor with these integrated practices can help us evolve and transform as human and spiritual beings.
Over the years, Rachel has been dedicated to traveling, training, teaching, and organizing events and retreats to bring people and communities together through dance, mindful movement, meditative practices, and healing and empowerment work.
Rachel organizes events all over the world and currently resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
