Rachel Harris is a devoted wife of a Marine aviator, mother of three active children, and the founder of Bindu Living. She grew up overseas as a missionary surgeon’s daughter, and enjoyed climbing trees, playing soccer, and reading. Her love of movement and learning continued into adulthood - earning a B.S. in Psychology from Northern Arizona University and coaching certifications in CrossFit and Track & Field. She completed running races ranging from road 5ks to 21.5 mile trail runs as well as open-water and pool triathlons. She also discovered a passion for weightlifting and competed in a CrossFit competition.
Living an active lifestyle comes with higher risk of injury, and Rachel eventually suffered a serious back injury. Seeing injury as an opportunity, she decided to continue learning as she pursued a 200hr yoga teacher training from the Yoga Center of Carmel in 2016. It was through that training that she found inner peace and began to understand the true essence of yoga. She then pursued her massage therapy certification and became a state licensed massage therapist. Her passion is Sacred Lomi Lomi, but has numerous certifications in hot stone therapy, reiki, cupping, kinesio taping and pediatric massage. Her most recent endeavor is a 200 hour Prana Vinyasa Teacher Training taught by senior teacher, Monica Mesa Dasi, of Shiva Rea's Samudra Global School of Living Yoga. She loves all styles of yoga, and just like life, she likes to keep it varied.
Rachel is passionate about self-care and believes that massage and yoga are essential for restoring the soul. She loves empowering people to feel their best – physically, emotionally and spiritually. When the mind, body and spirit are one, there is freedom.
