It’s time to reconnect to you.
Rachel draws on the presence, non-judgement and compassion of yoga, mindfulness and coaching practices to help others grow, reconnect with their authentic selves and thrive.
Hi! I’m Rachel.
So, what’s my story? Well, I spent most of my teens and early 20s with little confidence, a high-level of anxiety and a huge amount of self-pressure and high expectations. I know I’m not alone, but it felt it at the time. I tried yoga whilst at university and loved it. It immediately had a profound effect on my mind and body. I found it brought more stillness to my normally racing thoughts and gave me the confidence to try new things without expecting perfection.
I’ve had the privilege of having some brilliant yoga teachers over the years and 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 with myself and others.
In 2019, I took my Level 1 teacher training on Lembongan island, Bali. Around the same time I finished a year-long journey with a coach after struggling with self-image and confidence. By chance, I was also introduced to coach training through my full-time work. The timing aligned perfectly.
I noticed a deep connection between yoga, coaching and meditation that had allowed me to improve my overall wellbeing: together these practices developed my self-awareness, gratitude, presence and compassion. For me, this combination was transformational. It has helped me reconnect to who I am and identify what’s holding me back so I can start living more authentically.
Now, with close to 10 years professional experience in learning and development and education, I have deepened my enthusiasm and purpose to help others grow and achieve their potential.
Finding energy and reconnection in nature, I spend my free time walking, eating great food, horse riding, paddleboarding, discovering new places and doing yoga of course! I live in Cambridgeshire with my partner and two cats, Maisy and Minnie.
Grow into the best you can be
Beisser says that change occurs when we acknowledge and accept where we already are, instead of looking ahead to where we want to be. I believe in empowering people to recognise their existing strength so they can move towards their goals.
My mission for Rachel Thomason Wellbeing is to help individuals reconnect with who they are, so they can grow into they best they can be.
