Welcome to Ahimsa Yoga,

the website of yoga teacher Rachel Williamson.

Based in Letchworth, Rachel runs friendly yoga classes, workshops and other events in the North Hertfordshire towns of Letchworth, Hitchin and Baldock.

"...I came to yoga in my teenage years, feeling a need to get in touch with my body in a way that didn’t happen during PE classes at school, where I was made to feel embarrassed and ashamed of my poor co-ordination and lack of fitness...

A few years ago I found Seasonal Yoga, which incorporates Taoist philosophy and traditional yoga, and it really spoke to me…It makes so much sense to match our own practice and natural rhythms with those of nature all around us. My Yin Yoga and Dru experience naturally supported this, almost as if previous trainings were purposely taking me in the Seasonal direction! I am able to use all that I’ve learnt (and keep on learning) with this approach, taking it into my classes, workshops and courses." Read more of Rachel's Bio

"...Rachel is a unique and exceptional yoga teacher. I was introduced to her when I most needed a change in the style of yoga I was used to and her approach was ideal. The seasonal way in which she teaches allows an understanding of our own bodies and a greater awareness of the rhythms of the natural world that surrounds us and is so often overlooked..." - S.J.  Suffolk

The word "Yoga" comes from the Sanskrit word "yuj"  which means "to unite or integrate".



 

The Sanskrit word "Ahimsa" means non-violence, non-harming, non-injuring.

 

It is an important concept in yoga.

The goal of all yoga is to integrate the mind, body and spirit.Practising yoga should be a gentle transformative process.Yoga can be safely done by everyone.

 

“I went to two of Rachel's classes at the IYN festival in 2017.    Amongst many impressive teachers, her classes stood out. I found my mind calmed and my body opened by one yin and one hatha session, both of which were taught with compassionate and generous spirit.

Thanks Rachel.”
