rae's story

Portraits by Victoria Craven

Rae has been a lover of movement and music from her first breath. Having a conviction early on to follow her passion, not knowing at the time where it would lead. When Rachael discovered yoga, she felt as if she had come home for the first time. Yoga served as a vessel of healing, spiritual connection, expression and endless inspiration for Rae. It was then she knew her purpose was to provide the space for others to experience this transformation. 

Upon Rae completing her 200 YTT at Ra Yoga, Rae was awakened to her true teaching intention. It was then Rae continued to explore and pursue growth in her teaching by intensely immersing herself in Advanced teacher training (500 RYT) in Bali, Indonesia. Her mission is to provide a safe and nourishing space for her students to release, express and create space within themselves to manifest whatever they so desire. Through asana, breath and Rae’s guidance, students begin connecting to their own light and an interconnectedness that comes from a place of grounding, authenticity and love. 

Rae views festivals as one of the best platforms to understand this sense of interconnectedness and transformation. Having the ability to gather tribes of like minded people together in a space of high vibration, authentic communal intension and above all musical healing, creates the perfect platform for this work to be done. 

The integration of her musical background and devotion to a love-centric yogini lifestyle has been a key part in Rae’s teaching style.

When taking a class with Rae expect to be supported to have whatever experience is meant to come up. You can also expect to laugh, play on your edge, examine self and leave feeling emotionally and physically heightened. 

From an advisor of strength and wellness perspective, Rae strongly strives to break the stigma in the fitness industry of being solely fixated on body composition. She believes a strong and healthy body is an essential factor in living the highest quality of life. Rae will sit down with you, one on one and get your goals and dreams on paper. Then she will give you guidance, resources, knowledge, support, and most likely a small love kick in the ass to get it done. Expect to be challenged, held accountable and guided with compassion and encouragement. Expect to get your booty into shape with your heart leading the way.
