Presenter Bio

Rach has a background in dance, art, martial arts and law. For years she pursued a career in law after graduating from Queen Mary university, London and BPP Law School. She returned to her first love of holistic therapy. It came naturally to her as she had been raised in an environment that welcomed and encouraged complimentary therapies. One of her biggest influences is her mother who practiced homeopathy, reflexology, aromatherapy, iridology and massage for many years. Rach has traveled the world to complete her various trainings and brings her unique zest for life to everything she does. Sometimes laughter really is the best medicine: humour is a huge part of what she delivers. She continues her personal and professional development on an annual basis, keeping up to date with the latest knowledge from around the world, developing her practice, therapies and of course, herself. She thoroughly loves meeting people and creating an awesome space for them to develop deeper into themselves. Empowering others is her Dharma.

 Kwali Kumara is a magnetic, uplifting and inspiring kundalini yoga and gong meditation teacher. She creates a high vibrational, safe, sacred space for healing and transformation to occur. Her nurturing nature, passionate energy and colourful heart-felt enthusiasm for the teachings is highly infectious and motivating. Kwali is also a Serpent Healer, Sacred Ceremonialist and Mantra Artist having produced four albums with composer Pete Ardron. Their music is an ‘ancient future fusion’ that merges both her dance music past with her yoga teaching present.
