Raechelle fell in love with yoga years ago when she found herself in a Hatha yoga studio. Born in BC, Raechelle has travelled far and wide before landing in Halifax, with her family a decade ago. Raechelle is mom to three amazing kids, that she enjoyed staying home to raise. During her travels, across Canada to California and New Mexico, Raechelle remained creative and active through blogging, social media and freelance web design and writing.
When seeking a yoga studio, Raechelle landed at Halifax Yoga with a friend, fell in love with the community and has never left. Out of that love of the HY community bloomed an Energy Exchange position that enhanced that feeling of community and deepened her yoga practice.
When the opportunity came to be part of Halifax Yoga’s, Yoga Teacher Training, Raechelle’s sense of adventure and love of yoga urged her to take a chance and take part in the program.
Raechelle is now Assistant Studio Manager at Halifax Yoga!
