Rachel Chiartas grew up outside Washington D.C. She recently moved to Vietnam after 7 years living with her husband and two young boys in the small, beautiful state of Rhode Island. Before beginning their family, she lived abroad teaching English in Costa Rica and Taiwan. In Taiwan, Rachel first discovered her love of yoga while pregnant with her first child. After they moved back to the U.S., she continued practicing and greatly enjoyed taking her kids to family yoga classes. The joy she found in doing yoga with her own children inspired her to became a certified ChildLight children's yoga instructor! In addition to yoga, Rachel enjoys reading, spending time with her family, hiking, nature, and traveling. She is very excited to be back in Asia and is looking forward to sharing yoga with kids here in Ho Chi Minh!
