Hi, I’m Dr Rachel David, the geeky yogi
I wear many hats: scientist, researcher, writer, editor, science communicator, behaviour change specialist, yogi, sewist, knitter and aspiring poet.
Sometimes I combine all my passions successfully. Sometimes I make a mess. But that’s life!
I’ve trained in Hatha & Vinyasa flow (Jessica Stewart), Yin Yoga (Clare Gates-Sjoblom; Jennie Wadsten & Melanie Cooper), Yoga Nidra (Jennie Wadsten & Melanie Cooper), Rocket Yoga (Marcus Veda & Hannah Whittingham) and breathwork (Ben Wolff). Other notable trainings and workshops: yoga for immune and respiratory health (Charlotte Watts), yoga for anxiety (Jess Leitch) and anatomy (Corrie McCallum).
If you are interested in science writing, check out my portfolio.
I teach energising vinyasa flow, mindful yin yoga and deeply relaxing yoga nidra.
Yoga nidra Tuesdays, 7.00–7.30pm
Join me for 30 minutes of guided meditation to feel deeply relaxed and ready to wind down for the evening

If you are a researcher working at the intersection of yoga and wellbeing, or if you are looking to bring a bit of science into your teacher training or other communications programme, I would love to hear from you!
My areas of expertise are immunology, the gut microbiota, autoimmunity, behaviour change in health and more broadly the patient experience of disease.
