As a native Floridian, Rachael grew up beaching on Anna Maria Island and boating the surrounding waterways. The saltwater lifestyle became a part of her soul very early on. Most of her childhood days were spent pruned and sun-kissed from living life as if a mermaid. Now a days, not much has changed and the saltwater lifestyle is still what delights her most. When she discovered SUP Yoga, she knew she’d found her niche. The second she gave it a try, she was hooked. Combining yoga with the elements of the ocean, surrounded by nature allows for true connection. Feeling the energy of the water coursing below you, the breeze around you, and the sun above, all amidst a flowing yoga practice is nothing less than magical. Sharing the gift of yoga is an amazing part of Rachael’s life, but sharing it on the water is her dream come true.
