I engaged Rachel Giffin to provide a weekly yoga class to employees of Hawker Capital (commodity/global macro hedge fund). The classes had a material impact on the well being and relaxation of members of staff. Rachel’s bubbly personality, combined with deep technical skills and excellent teaching ability, have meant that a wide range of staff have found her classes completely accessible. From complete beginners to seasoned amateurs the classes have allowed staff (who work in a very stressful environment for extremely long hours) to relax and unwind for an hour a week, while improving their flexibility, balance and breathing techniques. I would highly recommend Rachel to any prospective employer; not only is she an extremely competent yoga teacher but she is a breath of fresh air to any environment, helping team spirit and moral. She has a truly professional approach to her work and her genuine love of the medium is infectious.

Please contact me if you require any further information.

Rachel’s classes are the highlight of my week, I always leave feeling challenged and invigorated whilst relaxed and calm at the same time. Each sequence and move is explained clearly, so I feel strong and confident in each pose and can see an improvement weekly. The breathing and meditation techniques she teaches have helped me deal with stress and find clarity after a stressful time at work. I have tried yoga on and off for several years but this is the first time I’ve felt confident (and interested) enough to continue my practices at home, and that is thanks to Rachel and her enthusiasm and patience.

I can’t recommend Rachel enough, she is friendly, funny and a brilliant teacher.

Rachel’s classes make a Monday so much brighter. She is incredibly motivated, fun, engaging and warm and provides the most holistic yoga lessons I have ever taken part in – I thoroughly recommend her for all levels of yogi’s.

Preeya Varsani, The Communications Store


Rachel Giffin is a very intuitive teacher. She is calm, patient, present and holds the most beautiful space. I cried wonderful tears of genuine joy and release at the end of the class that I took with her. If I lived closer I would take more classes for sure.

Sharna Rose, Inner Spin Hoop Dance

Rachel does a weekly class at my office for my staff and me; it helps team bonding, puts them in a fantastic mood and they’re more productive. Brilliant.
