Rachel is an international anatomy and movement teacher that specialises in teaching yoga students and teachers awareness of the structure and function of how their bodies move. Her personal mantra “educating and moving the world one body at a time” stems from over 24 years of hands on experience and 15 years of teaching.
Trained at the British School of Osteopathy, Rachel teaches alongside internationally renowned yogis in their teacher trainings, including: Les Leventhal, Tara Judelle, Kaya Peters, Tanya Kaps, Cat Kabira, Emily Kuser, Denise Payne, Bex Tyrer, School of Sacred Arts, Tina Nance and Beate McLatchie.
Based in Bali, the yoga capital of Asia, Rachel travels to yoga schools across the globe to educate yoga students and teachers in a holistic view of how the whole body works. She combines her extensive knowledge of osteopathy, sports therapy, pilates, Thai bodywork, and yoga into unique interactive anatomy and movement classes with the help of Charlie, her skeleton.
Rachel’s teaching experience extends back 15 years where she spent a decade instructing osteopath students at UniTech in New Zealand after graduating from the British School of Osteopathy. She encourages her students to develop their own self-awareness and invokes in them a playful curiosity about what happens under their skin. Rachel’s down-to-earth teaching style uses storytelling and case studies, visuals of the body, interactive exercises and informative handouts to make anatomy an engaging subject for all her students.
Rachel will be providing interactive anatomy education during the training giving the students time to integrate and embody the structural human form and how it functions in relation to yoga, helping you become a better yogi and yoga teacher. Learn more at http://www.theanatomyschool.com/
Andrew Mournehis started his career as an Optometrist looking through the “Windows of the Soul”, before giving it all up to dance and choreograph in London, which lead to an incredible opportunity to choreograph Tina Turner’s 1996 ‘Wildest Dreams’ world tour. In the peak of his career, an injury and visa expiry forced him to return to Australia, where he became extremely unwell and sought out a healing path. He turned to Yoga to heal his heart and his body. He immediately fell in Love with the practice, studied vigilantly, and in 1999 began teaching yoga to packed classes. Andrew went on to study Transpersonal Counselling, graduating from the Phoenix Institute of Australia in 2001. He had a very clear vision that his gifts and passions were best directed in the power of group, mythology and the potent healing energy that is exchanged in each other’s stories, both personal and Universal. Being an already well respected and established yoga teacher, he spent the next decade combining his love of Yoga with his passion for healing Transpersonal work to create Transformative spaces for his students and participants to heal and become more whole. Coming from a diverse and eclectic Yoga background, Andrew teaches a combination of Hatha, Bhakti and Tantra Yoga. His Creative, Joyful and Heart-filled teaching strengthens the body, soothes and clears the mind, whilst enlivening and enriching the Spirit through both Postural and Universal Alignment. His unique teaching style is imbued with Heart and Soul, rich in Tantric Philosophy and his classes are filled with Inspiration, Storytelling, Mantra and the Spirit of the Divine. Andrew has spent almost 20 years facilitating many healing groups, workshops, intensives and retreats both nationally and internationally working with the healing potential of Yoga, Movement, Tantra, Mythology, and Transpersonal Modalities.
Andrew brings to his work over 16 years of experience in Transpersonal Counselling and Art Therapy Techniques, 19 years of Yoga Teaching and over 25 Years experience in the Creative Arts Fields.
