Rachael is a 16th generation daoist disciple of Master Yuan Xiu Gang and Wudang San Feng Pai. She was born in Edinburgh and trained first as a yoga teacher alongside studying taiji, qi gong, zen buddhism and shamanic practices.
Rachael's work with people searching for wellbeing and balance began in 2011 when she started the Soen Ren School in Edinburgh while continuing to train in China and she taught full time for many years.
She now has three young children and lives in a very special part of Scotland in Argyll and Bute surrounded by sacred spaces and continues to teach online and in weekly classes, workshops and
