Episode 007 Rachel Wilson Yoga, Meditation, and Physical Fitness is a Lifeline Rachel is a teacher, educator and yoga therapist with over 12 years of experience. She is the founder of Om My Yoga Studio and Om My Yoga teacher training Academy located just outside Harrisburg Pennsylvania. Rachel teaches Classes, workshops, and retreats that draw upon her education and experience in a number of different areas including Yoga, Aerial yoga, Acrobatic yoga, Pilates, athletics, mental health studies and yoga therapy. Her eclectic background comes through in her teaching style. Rachel admits that yoga was not originally her career path. She shares her story of using yoga and marathon running to help with a very stressful time in her life and reset and clear her head during struggles and depression. Rachel says, “yoga and meditation, tending to physical fitness, felt very much like lifeline for me.” Her knowledge and interest level since she was 20 have grown explosively and parallel her obvious passion for what she does. She talks about the special 6 month journey she leads for groups of around 30 people who are investigating yoga as a life healing modality or as a teacher education. Rachel talks gratitude, second chances, unlimited opportunities as well as openness to opportunities or tragedy. “Even if your first or second plan doesn’t work out, all this is just opportunity. You can always just take another path.” Rachel’s tragic story of a million gallons of water flooding one of her studios and her outlook on moving forward gave me chills hearing it. “Adversity, loss of things or plans, doesn’t need to be something that totally rocks my world.” Follow along with her journey to see where her next chapter takes her and her business. Giving credit to her parents, Rachel shares some of the big lessons they taught her. “Generosity can change lives.” “Your character is more important than the things that you have.” “You can love someone unconditionally with your flaws and create community and create support.” Tara Brach from the pages from her book, “Radical Acceptance,” was an meaningful teacher for Rachel. Deborah Adel, Author of “The Yamas & Niyamas: Exploring Yoga’a Ethical Practice,” is another mentor Rachel gives credit to. Mindfulness according to Rachel: “Being willing to be in touch with the present moment sensations. The joy and the simplicity or the ache and the pain that’s happening in this moment.” “An essential pause that is taken.” “Mindfulness can be found in the most exciting and energetically charged moments of success, but it also can and needs to be found in the mundane and the painful.” Be sure to listen to the end to hear Rachel’s great advice to live a life of your dreams. Additionally, learn about this valuable non-violent question can make a huge difference in relationships, at work, at home with your family: “what can we do different to make this work?” Resources: http://ommyyoga.com/ https://www.facebook.com/ommyyoga/ https://www.facebook.com/acroOMies/ https://www.facebook.com/rachel.m.wilson.14
