Rachel Barringer

👋 I am Rachel Barringer

Rachel is an aerialist, contortionist, yoga teacher, circus coach, and cellist living in the Boston area. In pre-covid times she performed circus with companies including The Boston Circus Guild and Nimble Arts, but now she mostly trains contortion/handstands and teaches via Zoom in her attic. 

She has been teaching yoga since 2008 and strives to help her students feel empowered through alignment-based movement. In her own practice, Rachel focuses on building core strength and balanced flexibility, leading to a more rich and fulfilling experience of life off the mat. She takes particular interest in breaking down seemingly impossible poses into smaller components, making them accessible to her students. Some of her most influential yoga teachers are Ana Forrest, Georgia Reath, Todd Skoglund, and David Vendetti. 

A classically-trained cellist, Rachel was drawn to yoga as a way to relieve performance anxiety while she was a music major in college. Immediately she began experiencing the multitude of other benefits and realized that yoga was forever going to be a part of her life.
