Rachel Zinman is absolutely passionate about Yoga, it’s true meaning and message. She first came across Yoga at 17 and has never looked back.
That means Rachel has been practicing since 1983, teaching since 1992 and teaching teachers since 2000. She has been lucky to study with some of the most influential teachers in the West including Louisa Sear, Dena Kingsberg, Alan Finger and Mark Whitwell as well as immersing herself in the study and assimilation of the classical system of knowledge called Vedanta, in the lineage of Swami Dayananda.
In 2005 after being introduced through friends Rachel met her now life partner, John Weddepohl.
In 2011 they taught their first retreat together combining Yoga and Self Knowledge. They have been traveling and teaching together ever since.
In a class Rachel shares pranayama, asana, meditation, mudras and mantras from both the Laya and Kriya Yoga tradition. She credits her passion for meditation and Tantra to her mentor Alan Finger and her deepened understanding of pranayama to John, who initiated her into the tradition of the ancient Tamil Siddhas.
