Pilgrimage of the Heart Yoga > Instructors > Rachel Ishiguro, RYT 200

I have been practicing yoga since the late 1990s, studying with a range of teachers and styles.Certified through Pilgrimage of the Heart Yoga and registered with Yoga Alliance, I teach Vinyasa, Hatha and Restorative Yoga with a focus on physical alignment and connecting to the breath. I weave philosophy and readings into my classes as a way to unite the physical practice of asana with our lives off the mat. I believe that yoga is first and foremost a transformational practice. It helps us open to change in our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual selves. Yoga has taught me to find calm and ease while continuing to challenge my perceived physical and mental boundaries. I feel deeply privileged to be able to pass on these amazing teachings to my students.

Rachel’s Class Style: Rachel’s Gentle Yoga classes are relaxing and meditative, with an emphasis on gentle movement, breath awareness, and listening to your own body for a healing and deeply personal practice.
