Medical Doctor and Naturopath
When Rachel was young she took herbal tonics, grew sprouts, raised chickens and drank goats milk. Her aunt was a naturopath in the 70’s. As a little girl she believed this was how we all looked after our health.
When she qualified and worked in clinic as a Naturopath, now 20 years ago, she realised this wasn’t the case. She saw that many patients thought this was alternative and there was confusion and distrust. She then went on to study Medicine. Fast forward through hospital medicine, emergency trauma, psychiatric wards to general practice – and a very different view of her world was formed.
She has dedicated her life to learning about wellness and how to re-establish balance and a sense of peace. She has seen both sides of the health industry and they are both valid and valuable. She is here to integrate the both of them.

My love for Yoga started in my early teens. I knew somewhere deep inside of me that I wanted to share this amazing gift of Yoga with others so I began my Teacher Training in 2014 learning the ancient techniques of Traditional Hatha Yoga.Not long after graduating, I then found Yin Yoga and immediately fell in love with this style of practice. I hold this practice close to my heart as I find it deeply nourishing, relaxing and meditative.
