My name is Rachele Eve Guastella and I am a fifth-generation Italian American. I have been practicing yoga for ten years with a foundation of Vinyasa, Bikram, and Ashtanga styles and am currently enrolled in 200 HR teacher training through Yoga Alliance at Seva Yoga in Grand Rapids, MI.
I have explored many pathways as a performing and recording musician, gardener and schoolteacher, traveler and volunteer farmer, while tending to and taking refuge in my yoga practice along the way. It wasn’t until I decided to move to the Marshall Islands to investigate “seva” and serve the community on Majuro Atoll that I had my first experience leading yoga. My first yoga teacher, and now dear friend arrived to Majuro, Marshall Islands a few months after I began teaching and between the two of us, we garnered a nice yogic community offering five, free yoga classes a week to the community.
I’m enamored by the energy and personal journey that yoga brings each and every individual. Yoga practice welcomes balance into our daily lives and develops self-awareness on spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical levels. By connecting our inner light and guidance one also taps into the well of the universal oneness of the world. Yoga assists us in surrendering to the spinning wheel of death and rebirth as compassionate witnesses to the human experience. Yoga helps us cultivate our own inner knowing and equanimity and connects us to elements of our great Mother Earth, embodying her presence through non-harming, breath, and physical movement. Yoga is life’s most beautiful dance.
