Her mantra “educating and moving the world one body at a time” stems from over 26 years of hands-on experience and 17 years of teaching functional anatomy, bodywork techniques, and movement. Her passion to heal others through touch and movement began while practicing sports therapy in the UK and Caribbean. Rachel naturally progressed into further education at the British School of Osteopathy graduating in 2000. Rachel has also continued training in Cranio-sacral Osteopathy, Garuda mat, dry needling, pediatrics, and shown interest in Eastern medicine healing modalities Wuo Tai, Zen Thai Shiatsu, Thai Vedic Yoga, and the Thai Massage Circus.
Since then, Rachel has practiced holistic osteopathy in NZ and is now based in Bali, the healing capital of Asia, she travels within Bali and to yoga schools across the globe to educate yoga students on the importance of human and functional anatomy encouraging them to develop their alignment, self-awareness, teaching skills and to educate others in the wonders of the body.
Audrey’s journey originally started in France but her heart has now truly become Balinese. She arrived on the island of god in 2014 and little did she know that unexpected encounter would soon change her life.
After working 10 years in the hospitality business back home, she took a lead of faith, packed up, and ran towards new adventures with her partner to a new land full of surprises. They arrived in the small village of Tulamben, on Bali’s East coast, a quiet little gem celebrated worldwide for its magical dive sites.
Entered Tomomi Becot whom she met only a few weeks after arriving and who became her friend and Teacher. Together, they practiced and studied Yoga for a year allowing Audrey to discover more than just a newfound passion but a new path. Following her desire to take her practice to the next step and has not left this magnificent country that is Indonesia ever since.
Audrey later joined Yoga Dunia’s team to improve her teaching skills around Bali, where she can ally her two passions, Yoga and management. Then she joined the Fly High family for new training and realized how knowledge of human anatomy and movement is so important for practicing yoga safely. Autodidact, she starts to read, watch videos, join the community to study, and learn more about it by herself.
When Audrey is not at work, you can find her wandering around Nusa Lembongan Island and taking pictures or enjoying her cozy home and cooking for loved ones.
