I have worked with diverse populations in a variety of different roles and all of this has inspired and informed the creation of my favourite project yet, Wildflower.

After completing her 200 hr Yoga Training with Semperviva, Rachel wishes to share her passion for physical and mental self-empowerment with others. You can expect an accessible practice synched with breath, great music, and an invitation for self-reflection. All levels welcome.

Hatha with Chandni Karmacharya

Chandni comes home when she practices and tunes in to the various aspects of yoga. She initially started yoga to complement other workouts but yoga gradually became more than just a physical practice with postures. Yoga has become a vehicle to connect with herself and her surroundings for a more grounding and fulfilling life. 

Chandni completed her 200 hours yoga training in hatha yoga at Semperviva and has had other trainings which include yoga nidra, prenatal yoga, and hands on assists. In addition to the postures or the asanas, Chandni's hatha classes will offer lots of breathing exercises, meditation as well as little bits of yoga philosophy to help students tune into themselves and leave the class feeling relaxed and grounded.
