About me

Rachel Mitchell

I trained as a yoga teacher in 2003 with June Mitchell’s Classic Yoga School.  The 200hr Training Course took a year to complete and was very indepth, covering everything from anatomy to Yoga philosophy and First Aid. I have been teaching off and on since this time.

Although I only came to teaching yoga in the last few years, I have practised yoga since I was a toddler going to classes with my mum!  I became a student of Ashtanga in 2002 after my yoga teacher June spent 3 months in India with the founder of Ashtanga yoga, in the west, Pattabhi Jois.

I am an Ashtanga home practitioner, come rain or shine I practise weekly with fellow yogi Fiona Campbell (Perth Yoga Studio) and when I can I travel to The Yoga Spot in Aberdeen to join Michele Ross’s monthly Mysore.  Over recent years I have practised with Peg Mulqueen, Taylor Hunt and Gretchen Suarez.  Two teachers I have come to enjoy working with and deeply respect are David Keil (Yoganatomy) who I first met and started practising with in 2004 and Scott Johnson (Stillpoint Yoga London) 2015.  Both are amazing teachers and I try to work with them as often as they are in Britain and Scotland.

I completed the Yoga for Healthy Lower Back in the summer of 2013 with the course founder Alison Trewhela.  I decided to do the training after suffering lower back pain as a result of the birth of my first child, which then became worse after the birth of my second.

My mother also lived for many years with a badly inwardly herniated disc and, although she had good and bad days, she never missed her weekly yoga class as she felt it helped to keep her mobile – helping to improve her mental and physical well being.
