Bio: Rachell Clark is a Berlin based Dance Artist and teacher.  She studied dance at The Victorian College of the Arts (Melbourne University) in Melbourne Australia, gaining training in contemporary dance, ballet and a variety of somatic body practices such as kinesiology and feldenkrais technique. 
Rachell’s interest in Yoga came from a search to find a practice that richly supplements the dancing body.  She completed her Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga training at Samyak Yoga in Kovalam India and continues to rigorously practice and educate herself.   The combination of both dance and yoga has brought Rachell to a deeper understanding of movement and functionalities of the body.  The practice of yoga allows one to focus inwardly and is a way to center and connect the body, breath and mind.
