Yogi of the Month

February Yogi of the Month

Rachel Farscht

Rachel is a vibrant part of our Westchester Community and we are so happy to get to hear more from her about her personal practice as well as how yoga touches her fitness life outside the hot room.

Nikki: How long have you practiced yoga and what other forms of exercise do you like to do?

Rachel: I discovered yoga about 13 years ago and was immediately hooked. I also love to take barre classes. I get my cardio workouts from running and the stairmaster.

Nikki: What brought you to YogaSpark?

Rachel: I practiced yoga regularly when I lived in Manhattan but took a break when I moved to Westchester in ‘08, mostly because couldn’t find a rigorous vinyasa class near me here in Larchmont. I initially came to YogaSpark to support Lauren (the owner and my very good friend) but I come back religiously because I love it! It’s a great workout and the studio has such a feel good vibe!

Nikki: You’re also a runner. How do you find that doing yoga has impacted your running and visa versa?

Rachel: Running and yoga provide such a balance for me. I crave cardio and get that from running, but I also need the stretch and core strength which I get from yoga.

Nikki: Can you give a word or phrase that describes yoga to you?

Rachel: Energetic
