“My first Restorative Yoga class and it was just what I needed today. Thank you Randy! The studio is beautiful, peaceful and filled with positive energy. Sheltered from the downpour of rain; the hot tea and home made honey after class made it extra cozy. I shall see you at the next class.”

Rachana is certified to teach meditation & mindfulness. She has a wonder and curiosity of the human mind, and pursued her education and profession in psychology and counseling in India. Her curiosity led her on a quest for understanding the mind, and she developed a desire to explore deeper. Rachana started with her personal meditation practice and acquired a broad knowledge of spirituality. She found it all so overwhelmingly beautiful that she felt compelled to share meditation with the world. Eventually she enrolled in McLean Meditation Institute, where she expanded her meditation knowledge and teaching experience. Rachana’s approach is compassionate and simple. She finds it a privilege to teach meditation to anyone with a willingness to learn, including reaching out as a volunteer. She has volunteered with homeless shelters in her community and conducted group meditation sessions.
