After taking her first yoga class in 2010, Rachael quickly fell in love with the practice, completing her 200 hour E-RYT certification in 2013. Through college, her yoga practice kept her grounded and eventually led to teaching her first heated power classes. After graduating from The University of South Florida in 2016, she flew the coupe to California and began working in the action sports industry. Realizing that the 9-5 can be hard on the body and mind, Hot 8 Yoga (and the ocean) became home.
With a gymnastics and cheerleading background, Rachael now focuses her high-energy and positive personality into teaching SCULPT at Hot 8. She hopes to inspire self-love, the practice of not taking yourself too seriously, as well as physical (and mental) strength within each class.
