Rachel Bilski

Rachel Bilski started life in the countryside of northern England before her natural curiosity whisked her away around the world. She began practicing yoga after a life-changing meditation retreat, and has since combined her passions for travel and yoga by attending intensive retreats and trainings throughout Europe and Asia.

Rachel co-founded Shanti Niwas, a yoga collaborative through which she holds yoga retreats and teaches private classes in Portugal. You can follow her musings on yoga and life on the Shanti Niwas blog: www.shantiniwas.com/snblog.
