HEY THERE!

Hello, I'm Rach - I am a Doctor, yoga and meditation teacher, coach and mentor for Doctors. 

I help doctors transition to a flexible career outside full-time clinical medicine so they can control their time, have more balance in their lives and make a bigger impact.

Read more about my personal story below. 

 

MY STORY

I first tried yoga in my '20s, and although infrequent and chaotic (mirroring my lifestyle at the time) the sense of calm I experienced is a lasting memory. Relocation to a small village and a slower pace of life prompted me to find yoga again—this time, exploring the world of online yoga. 

Since 2012 I have developed my yoga and meditation practice. Yoga has moved with me to a new country to call home and a more mindful way of living. I created Resilience Yoga after completing my yoga teaching training in the olive groves of Portugal in 2019.

Regular yoga and meditation practices help me to calm anxiety and overwhelm. I feel more in control of my actions and empowered to live a life that is true to who I am. 

As a medical doctor, I am passionate about preventing ill health and supporting other women to make conscious decisions and live more mindfully. 

 

20 years of planning and delivering healthcare combined with knowledge of the physical body and mind, enables me to create practices to improve health and wellbeing. With an in-depth understanding of behaviour change, I can facilitate healthy habits and routines.

 

My love of nature guided my choice of a home in the French Pyrenees. I can often be found walking barefoot in my garden, where the ever-changing vegetables and fruits serve as a reminder that we are moving forward. Escaping to the peace and tranquillity of the mountains is a favourite activity of mine, even better with a yoga mat in my rucksack. 

​ ​

Learning more about the principles of yoga has helped me to live more consciously and sustainably. It is this appreciation of how yoga can support a mindful transformation that I would love to share with you.

I help doctors transition to a flexible career outside full-time clinical medicine so they can control their time, have more balance in their lives and make a bigger impact.
