About me

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.

Come practice with me!

I teach energising vinyasa flow, mindful yin yoga and deeply relaxing yoga nidra.

Let’s collaborate!

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.
