A Bay Area native, Rachel Nichols has worked in the publishing business as a professional editor since 2006. With a love for content creation, yoga and spirituality, Rachel joined SF Yoga Mag as co-creator and editor. She has been practicing yoga since 2011 and is continuously inspired by the transformation that the practice has brought to her life, both on and off the mat.

Rachel loves to learn about what makes herself and others tick, and has a passion for personal growth, mind-body healing, psychology and astrology (she is a Scorpio, by the way).
