Starfish Yoga

Rachel Kisellus ⭐ Certified Yoga Teacher

Currently, I am a stay-at-home mama trying to keep up with my personal yoga practice and offering limited private yoga instruction. I began practicing in 2002 to cope with the stress of college, and when I moved to Anna Maria Island in 2012, I was inspired to follow my heart and become a yoga teacher. I love teaching many different styles of yoga, especially Beach Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Gentle Yoga, and Restorative Yoga, as well as meditation and mindfulness techniques. Practicing out in nature is incredibly grounding, so I prefer to practice and teach outside as much as possible. As a guide, I try to create space for you to experience yourself more objectively, love and accept what you find inside, and let go of tension and habits that are no longer serving you.

I practice yoga and meditation daily. I completed a 300-hour Yoga Teacher Certification in 2014, studying in the tradition of Ashtanga Yoga with Sharon DentonAlly Ford, Greg Nardi, and Jessica Lynne Trese. I also completed an extensive 200-hour Certification through Heartwood Yoga, which covered a wide variety of yogic styles and traditions. I am both WPA and ACA certified as a Stand Up Paddle Guide and SUP Yoga Instructor. I also hold teaching certifications in Prenatal Yoga, Chair Yoga, and Aerial Yoga. I am currently registered with Yoga Alliance at the E-RYT 500 level.
