that which she herself practices on a daily basis.....overcoming the obstacles of
the mind and emotions. With an Undergraduate Combined Major in Psychology and
Women’s Studies, Rachel has found her own niche of combining Eastern and Western
Philosophies and practices. Her classes are intimate and as spiritual as they are physical.
Rachel found that her love of yoga became her journey out of a long-time battle with anxiety and an eating disorder. Yoga was the gift she offered to herself every week to begin the process of healing. On the mat, she found that her mind quieted. She could really feel her body and the moment she was in. The swirling thoughts slowed and she had peace. This made Rachel reach out for more and more, eventually finding her way to meditation. Rachel is now a leader in the community working with mental health and addictions and showing how the mindfulness of Yoga can be used as a very effective tool for becoming more present and feeling more alive. Rachel teaches practical applications for slowing the mind and finding the path towards peace. As a Momma of 4 growing children, Rachel knows the busyness of life and the need to be present. Her love for her children and the forest ground her, while her love for people motivates her to show others their beauty within.

Indian Head Massage
From an early age, Carrie knew that nurturing hearts and souls was her life’s purpose. However, not knowing anything about holistic or complementary therapies or healing, she chose a practical and mainstream career as an Audiology Assistant. She began her career in 2000 at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, working with some of the sickest and most vulnerable children in the country. Her years there were both humbling and uplifting and broadened her perspective of how precious and magical life is while also bolstering her faith in the human spirit, as she saw how love can triumph in the face of the most intense sickness, and even death. In 2012, Carrie experienced first-hand what it was like to receive that same outpouring of love, by those who rallied around her and her two oldest daughters when her first husband died by suicide. The trajectory of Carrie’s life changed completely from that point, leading her on a quest for healing and meaning. Through the ensuing years, she has become an avid seeker of all things nourishing and nurturing. This has included poring through literature, practicing yoga, taking part in healing workshops, energy healing and ongoing support groups, starting her own meditation practice, learning about complementary healing modalities, and she is currently studying to become a Life Coach. Up and coming gifts will be studying reiki and becoming a postpartum doula in order to follow her heart’s dream of supporting mothers of newborns. In her seeking, Carrie has discovered the bliss of Indian Head Massage and is genuinely looking forward to gifting this wholly relaxing and nourishing healing modality to others. As a busy mama of 3, Carrie well understands that life can have its stresses and overwhelm and, because of this, she understands how vitally important it is to take time to slow down and allow yourself receive. You are worth it and you deserve it. Let Carrie nourish and nurture you, as she welcomes you with love and compassion and invites you to enjoy the deep healing of her hands and heart.
