Feel grounded. Feel confident. Feel empowered.
It’s time to reconnect to you.
I’m Rachel, a purpose-driven empath on a mission to support individual wellbeing and help you lead a life you love.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a passionate and ambitious people-person, with a deep-rooted desire to do something truly meaningful with my life.
I started yoga classes in my final year of university as a way to support the other physical activities I was doing and reduce the anxiety that comes with final exams (and being a high-achiever!) I got hooked, not because it helped me become more flexible and increase my upper body strength, but because of the positive impact yoga had on my mind and overall wellbeing.
I knew early on I wanted to train to be a yoga teacher to create for others the feeling that my teachers had gifted to me: compassion and connection. In 2019, I took my Level I teacher training on Lembongan island, Bali. Around the same time I finished a year-long journey with a coach after struggling with my mindset when running. By chance, I was also introduced to coach training through my work. The timing aligned perfectly.
All the work I had done on myself and my wellbeing through yoga, coaching and meditation was interconnected: all of these practices developed self-awareness, self-development, presence and compassion. For me, this combination was transformational. It helped me reconnect to who I am, and it made me realise my potential.
In his parodoxical theory of change, Beisser says that change occurs when we become what we are: we have to know who we are, before we can become.
That was my intention when setting up Rachel Thomason Wellbeing: to help reconnect individuals with who they are, so they can become who they want to be.
I live in Cambridge with my partner, Simon, and my little cat, Maisy, who sometimes joins our yoga classes. I enjoy horse riding, long walks and reading.
