Dear friends,

 

As humanity collectively navigates uncharted territory, the imposed social distancing is having many of us experiencing fear, disconnect, thoughts of scarcity and generalized overwhelm. 

 

We need our yoga now more than ever and I want to do my part.

 

I know I have come to this world to calm people down. The bulk of my teaching is based on employing therapeutic yoga tools to help my clients unwind, fully occupy their bodies and breathe deeply. One of the many benefits of this ancient practice is having us feel more grounded, steady and hopeful, regardless of the outside circumstances.

 

In order to continue my journey as a yoga teacher and to reach as many humans as I can, I'm now transitioning all of my teaching to the online platform, until further notice.

 

You can practice with me LIVE by dropping in a public live stream class, or schedule your commitment free private yoga class.

I'd love to support you. We will get through this.

Big deep breaths,

Raquel

 

has work become more of a priority than your well-being right now? 

Does this sound like you?

You're an ambitious and thriving professional, at the prime of your game.

 

The current state of affairs has piled even more responsibilities on your lap and you're noticing your energy reserves are starting to run low. 

You're experiencing higher levels of stress and have been noticing that the on-going aches and pains in your body are getting louder.

You've probably heard of the benefits of yoga but with so many free yoga classes being offered online, you might feel hesitant as to where to start.

In a nutshell, you need to move, get stress under control and maximize your energy levels, but you need someone to give you pointers and hold you accountable.

That's where I come in.

here's what i do

I teach therapeutic, goal-oriented 

private yoga to pressed-for-time professionals face-to-face in San Francisco and online, in a manner that is time and cost efficient.

I'll design a session informed by your current physical ability and come up with a thorough plan to fast track your improvement. 

I make sure every session is well-rounded and highly customized in order address your individual needs.

I will help you recharge physically and mentally so you experience more control over your life and less overwhelm.

WHO i work with

After many years of working with people 1-on-1,

my clients tend to be:

Work has always been top priority  in your life and your physical body is now starting to complain: lower back pain, neck and shoulder stiffness, difficulty unwinding at the end of the day. You want to make up for lost time and therefore need a time efficient and result driven movement practice.

busy professionals

You want to prepare physically and mentally to navigate pregnancy and birth. Since you work full time, it's hard to find prenatal yoga classes that work with your schedule. Plus, you know you would appreciate being taken care of for a change.

You're temporarily limited by an injury but wish to continue to be physically active. Aside from your physical therapy exercises you're not sure what else is safe to do. You need expert guidance and a highly tailored program to switch things up and help you rehab, asap.

healing from an injury

You have a super strong workout routine, but are as stiff as a board. You know yoga would be a great complement to your movement diet, but you're afraid you might not be able to keep up in group setting.

ABOUT

 

I felt so deeply relieved and relaxed after my first yoga class I could barely get off the floor.

 

I had just said goodbye to my boyfriend who was going to live in another country. I thought I was pretty good at keeping my cool about this major life change, but that yoga class totally exposed the truth simmering underneath.

 

A dear friend invited me to attend her yoga class. Without major expectations, I decided to go. Towards the end, she guided the group through a beautiful visualization. Suddenly, I felt my heart beating faster, the chest expanding, my throat gripping... tears down my face. What was THAT all about?

The invincible wonder woman inside me was caught completely off guard.

The mask fell off, giving space to vulnerability, sadness and overwhelm. I don't usually connect with that part of myself. Do you?

 

In that moment of unexpected surrender, I remember vividly wanting to remain very, very still.

It was that quality of unwavering inner stillness - no matter what I'm going through - I became interested in recreating that in my everyday life.

 

Do you tend to be over-scheduled, mentally scattered and physically tired? Do you walk through life feeling like a chicken with her head cut off? It doesn't have to be like that.

 

After over 8 years teaching yoga, I've realized what I am meant to do in this planet: help people be more balanced and centered in their lives, one breath at a time.

I look forward to getting to know you, what drives you nuts and what makes you tick. 

We're all in this journey together.

Warmly, Raquel
