Raechel Horowitz

Yoga London

Raechel is a global yogi, perpetual student and an integrator of yoga, mindfulness, science and psychology. Teaching Vinyasa and based mostly in London, Raechel aims to inspire enthusiasm for wellbeing through a mixture of dynamic and contemplative practices, which allow you to strengthen, delve deeper and develop tools to navigate life.

What drives you? 

With an MSc in Psychology and having worked for several years in the profession while practicing yoga, I witnessed how a combination of both opened the space for people to heal in a more holistic and sustainable manner. I am passionate about helping people develop a personal framework  which allows them feel better mentally, physically and spiritually. I truly believe that this can be achieved through a more embodied lifestyle and working with a community to connect with and support each other.

What’s next in training? 

I am currently completing an amazing course in Yoga, Mindfulness, Neuroscience, the Body and Contemplative practice taught by Bo Forbes which has been an incredible eye opener and am forever reading not only Psychology journals but yoga and anatomy papers.

What makes you happy?

Nature, movement and the special connections that are created between people is where I find happiness.

How do you create balance in your life? 

I plan moments of stillness and meditation throughout the day and embrace simple acts such as walking my dog in a park, even in the middle of London.

What’s one piece of kit you could not live without?

Yoga leggings - they are far too comfortable for just yoga and I end up wearing them all the time.

What are your goals for the future? 

I am excited about continuing to expand my practice and to work with care to help people achieve emotional, mental and physical health.

Who inspires you and why?

Growing up in South Africa I had the privilege of experiencing Nelson Mandela’s inspiration and his guidance to the community and the world at large. I hold onto his wisdom and remember is words when he said, 'the greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall'.
