“Exceptional + Extraordinary Experience. Rachel Is Warm, Smiling, Listening + Understanding. You Feel At Home – Like Family. The House + Studio Are A Reassuring Cocoon – Highly Recommend! — Aurelie, France

“The weeks I spent at Yoga Beach House for training were some of the best and most transformative of my life, albeit challenging. I felt safe there during the emotional times of our training. Rachel was supportive and understanding while maintaining discipline and providing confident guidance. We became close with her family and the community members who attended classes …. an active yoga studio helped to build our confidence. Yoga Beach House became a second home and the people I met there became family. We continue to have support even though our 200hr training has finished.” -Lilly, USA
