She teaches yoga to children and empowers adults to nourish their own inner child because she knows what it is like to play small, shrink back and feel stupid. She was the child that felt not good enough or smart enough. The child with the broken family, the child in remedial reading, the teenager who suffered from an eating disorder, the teenager who said, “NO!” and was not listened to, the young adult that went through a devastating divorce. It is that girl and others’ inner children that she gets to teach now. She longs to see hearts of all ages to know their God-given worth and value. Rachel loves teaching about the body in creative ways, leading imaginative visualized meditations, and finding the intersections of faith and daily life.
Rachel lives in Charleston,SC with her energetic and health-conscious husband, chef and restaurateur, Casey Glowacki, and two highly-spirited and inspirational boys, Liam and Grey. Rachel enjoys deep conversations over a good cup of coffee, reading with her children, and going on family vacations to Costa Rica and Colorado.
