Rachel Lovegrove is an Iyengar Yoga teacher with over 20 years’ experience of teaching and practice. She studied directly with BKS Iyengar and his senior teachers and runs sell-out retreats in Portugal, Italy, Ireland and the UK.
Her teaching style is grounded in a tradition of providing yoga for everybody, no matter the age or ability and all poses are tailored to suit the needs of the individual. She has a humorous and down to earth approach and makes sure even the most nervous of participants feels secure and able to relax and enjoy the yoga practice.
Iyengar yoga focuses on alignment of the body within the postures to bring about the most beneficial effects, sequencing to allow progression from one pose to the next, safely and steadily, and the use of props to either enhance the effects or to help those who have difficulties or challenges. The details and techniques involved also give the mind focus, clarity and peace.
The yoga weekend will give participants of all levels a thorough grounding in Iyengar yoga to enhance their wellbeing, improve their posture and give them insights in how to encourage strength and flexibility in the body as well as give peace to the mind. There will also be ideas for home practice (handouts will be available) so that the benefits can be carried on at home.
Originally from Winchester, Rachel now lives in Portugal but regularly visits the UK to teach and spend time with her family. For more information visit www.orangetreeyoga.com

Testimonial: “Rachel is a really excellent teacher. She paces her classes really well so you don’t feel out of your depth but you build slowly up to challenges and feel really great afterwards!”
