Forrest Yoga Certified


About Rachael:
Having practiced regularly for 12 years, Rachael McGowen took the plunge and completed the Forrest 200-hour Forrest Yoga teacher training in 2010 and the Advanced Training in 2014. Well-versed in many different styles of yoga, she chose the Forrest training because it is designed specifically for Western bodies and has a heavy focus on breath, healing, hands-on teaching, addressing injuries, alignment, and embodying spirit - all while being delighted by a truly fun and intensive workout. She has been teaching regularly for almost six years - in several studios in Charlottesville, VA, and then at The Mindful Body and Yoga Tree in San Francisco and currently, with private students and subs at Bend and Bloom and Park Slope Yoga in Brooklyn, NY. She encourages her students to focus on an intention with every practice, and to move this intention, breath, and focus off the mat and into their lives. Rachael is not only an agent for transformation of her students, but through her sustainability consulting firm, re:SHIFT. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband Shawn, son Benji and daughter Sylvia.
