Rachel has been working with preschoolers since 2010. She majored in Human Services with a concentration in Child and Family Studies and Early Intervention at Northeastern University. She moved to San Francisco in 2013 and taught at one of the top 10 preschools in the country, Pacific Primary, for many years.

Rachel lives in a tiny house on an organic farm in Newbury, MA with her partner John, 12 chickens, and lots of flowers, herbs and veggies. In her spare time she enjoys biking around Newbury, hiking in the White Mountains, making flower bouquets and playing piano. She is so excited for this very special week of camp, her 4th summer as a returning teacher to this program!

           Running since 2017, The magic of Yoga Arts Camp is in the collaborations that happen all week long! Some songs and yoga flows are taught, and some we create together as a group! Art projects, songs, dances, and yoga classes will be different every week, so feel free to sign up for just one session, or join us for them all!
