Teacher Spotlight: Rachelle Tratt


We met Rachelle Tratt nearly 10 years ago through fellow Yoga Wake Up teacher Sophie Jaffe and were immediately overwhelmed with the joy and free spirit that she embodies on and off the mat. Rachelle is the biggest and best hugger! She exudes warmth and even though she hails from the east coast she's got major Cali girl vibes!

Rachelle, who also founded The Neshama Project, an accessories brand near and dear to her heart and Israeli heritage, lives and teaches in Venice. Find her at The Yoga Collective where her flow classes there are all about freedom of movement and self-expression. When she's not teaching, she's with her best girl pup, Bailey.

Next Friday, April 5, we're thrilled to have Rachelle leading our MOONRISE class at Goldthread HQ in Santa Monica. Laughter and dancing will ensue! Find out more.

Now without further ado...

YOUR TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

FEEL VS How it looks

WORD TO LIVE BY

every little bit counts and every little bit makes a difference

when we can learn to say thank you for the blessings

thank you for the challenges

thank you for the beautiful mess that is this thing called life and love and to understand that we are continuously learning, growing and evolving

and and that we are here to give, support and love and love some more

this to me is spirituality

this to me is a yoga lifestyle
