Rachel has been teaching kids yoga since 2009 and is known as a thought leader in the kids yoga field. She hopes that one day mindful movement will be taught regularly in schools like math and science! Rachel is a yoga teacher and writer, has presented at the National Kids Yoga Conference two times, has authored the first kid yoga app for the iPad, and has developed multiple kids yoga curriculums and trained hundreds of kids yoga teachers. She is grateful to now bring her experience and passion to NGY as a trainer and curriculum writer.
Rachel’s career began with teaching kids swimming lessons. She studied early childhood development and youth ministry in college and along the way, fell in love with yoga. After becoming a mom and a yoga teacher, she found a desire to teach children’s yoga after bringing their storybooks to life through movement, breathing exercises and meditation.
Rachel believes that in order to be a teacher, one must be a student first. She is dedicated to continuing her education through workshops, online training and self study. She believes that anything can be our teacher and as one of your many teachers, her intention is to guide and create a space for you to not only strengthen your mind and body, but also to know that the teacher is inside of you.
Rachel lives in the Vail Valley in Colorado with her energetic and health-conscious husband, chef and restaurateur, Casey Glowacki, and two highly-spirited and adventurous boys, Liam and Grey. Rachel enjoys meaningful conversations, going on family vacations to surf and snowboard, reading and geeking out on the latest research that supports brain and body health and anything inspirational that enhances life
