Rachel Jennine Goudey, C-IAYT, RYT, Psy.D.

It is my belief that the mind, body, and spirit are all connected and for true health and wellness one must work with all of these aspects of the self. I have found the practices of yoga and movement in my own life to be monumental in this process.

Coming from a lifelong background in dance and  a family of artists and musicians, I have always found movement and creative expression to be a vital part of emotional work and healing. Working in the mental health field for over 10 years, I have extensive experience working with trauma, substance abuse, and mood and behavior disorders. I have witnessed first hand how practices that incorporate the whole being provide more than just temporary symptom relief, but true understanding and healing so that the individual can move forward with strength, resiliency, and trust in themselves to make healthy life choices and be more skillfully adept in their thoughts and reactions to life's challenges.

My aim is to teach and guide students and clients in practices that help to bring them into deeper connection to their truest self by providing them with the tools to strengthen their abilities to discern, adapt, reflect, and soothe all of the facets of themselves. I do this through a blend of Eastern and Western philosophies and wellness practices that work with the psyche, the body, and energy. 

My yoga classes and therapy sessions meet each individual where they are at while still challenging them to reach new heights of self-realization, acceptance, strength and flexibility both on and off of the mat. I will push you to challenge yourself while also guiding you to listen to your body and intuition, guiding and teaching from a place of authenticity and playfulness.
