Rachel Piccolo - Yoga Teacher

In the beginning, Rachel was skeptical of the benefits of yoga and enjoyed her fast paced and busy life, thinking that the practice of yoga would bore her. However, a friend convinced her to join a yoga class and Rachel’s misconceptions quickly changed. The profound physical, but most importantly, mental benefits was incredible. Yoga has taught her to enjoy, without guilt, the moments of silence and stillness in her life. Ten years have flown by since that first class and in that time Rachel became certified as a Yoga Teacher in a Vinyasa style. This was perfect for her as she enjoys the physical flow and strength as well as the blissful quiet moments. Pure Balance. Rachel continues to learn and grow daily through her practice and share her love with others. Her teaching is gratified by the peace and change she sees in her students.

Rachel has always had a passion for an active lifestyle and learning how to achieve an overall healthy well-being. She had her first taste of yoga 10 years ago at an Iyengar class. She loved it and wanted to learn more, and began trying all styles of yoga. Each style had one very important element infused: body and mind connection. She realized her very yang style lifestyle was lacking this element. When she practiced she felt a sense of calm, tranquility and starting seeing changes in her behavior, her sleep and it rippled its affect on her life. She wanted to share this with everyone.

From this she went on to complete her teacher training with Spygna the Yoga & Cycling Studio with Sari Nisker-Fox and Tracey Soghrati, and a few years later she received her Yin Training, with Tracey. Each training, workshop and teacher she has met has inspired her even more. She presently teaches: Vinyasa, hatha, yin/yang and prenatal classes, as well as private and classes for aspiring professional hockey players. She welcomes all students to her classes offering an open heart, a smile, some humor and guidance in assisting them to find introspection, balance and connection to their deepest self.

On a personal note, she's a busy wife and mother. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends, cooking great healthy food, reading books that will continue her growth, and of course keeping active.

RYT 225 hours
50h yin training
