I followed the Yoga Alliance 300h TTC in Sampoorna Yoga school (India) in February 2015, having Rachel as a course director.
I cannot express in words how lucky I’ve been to have a devoted teacher like Rachel: Each class was perfectly tailored for each study subject. Everybody could feel that there was a huge work behind each asana, anatomy or posture clinic session she was teaching.
I especially appreciate her mastery of human body structure and how she linked it with every movement explicit and implicit in each asana. That is very important for someone like me, quite scientific and down to earth, because she made me understand, empirically, how powerful yoga can be. That was really inspiring and it encouraged me to teach.
On the other hand I always felt that for a month, she was completely aware of all our little improvements. Somehow, she managed to have always an eye on me and on all my other yoga mates in class, which was very heart-warming for the students.
Finally, thanks to her, I cannot stop reading yoga related anatomy books!!!!
