    Rachael Lowe
    Rachael's Cambodian life adventure began in May 2007 in a province bordering Vietnam as a
    management consultant to a Cambodian NGO helping to ease the suffering of HIV/AIDS
    victims.

    Rachael began teaching Kundalini Yoga at the Kundalini Yoga House in June 2009 as well as
    consulting on agricultural development and policy issues with government and donor
    agencies. Rachael is a certified level 1 Kundalini Yoga teacher and is also busy achieving her
    level 2 Kundalini Yoga certification.

    Rachael's biggest challenge is to achieve balance between a demanding work life, now as
    Country Director of the consulting company, guiding Kundalini Yoga students on their
    personal yoga experience, her own daily yoga practice, and really long and enjoyable lunch
    breaks with dear friends. Sometimes the balance is not achieved and Rachael strives to
    translate her personal experience of a challenging work/life balancing act by teaching and
    sharing with yoga students how it is that yoga restores that balance - also her personal
    experience.

    "The Teachings of Kundalini Yoga deeply touched my heart since my first practice and
    inspired me to learn more and become an instructor myself. I feel such gratitude for having
    this Self Awakening technology in my everyday life and I am very happy to be able to share
    these Teachings with all students. Sat Nam."

    Anna Glazkova
    Satnam!

    Kundalini Yoga entered my life back in 2007 when I was expecting my first child, Anton. I
    believe the moment was right to start something new, exciting and life changing in those
    special days of transition to a wonderful world of motherhood.

    Since then I completed my KY teacher training and have been traveling to numerous yoga
    workshops  and trainings around the world.

    I enjoy in particular sharing the science of yoga with moms-to-be and teaching post-natal
    yoga classes and to help women to feel empowered during these beautiful moments.
    In alignment with my yoga practice, I am a co-founder of a preschool where we practice a
    play-based, child-centered approach to the early childhood education.  My family also opened
    a child friendly hotel and an organic grocery store & café where one can be easily inspired to
    a healthy life style.

    I am very grateful both to my teachers and to my students and friends for being a part of
    this magnificent adventure of life!

    Light to all,
    Anna
