An important concept in yogic tradition is that of Seva: selfless service and volunteering for the community.

For over a decade, Rachel has been actively involved in supporting children affected by developmental disabilities and the pediatric rehabilitation community in Mysore through her expertise as a Physical Therapist.

She has volunteered directly with the following organizations through educating leadership staff, mentoring and training local therapists, evaluating and treating children and educating their caregivers.

Rachel’s ongoing involvement allows her to identify specific rehabilitation equipment needs that are not readily available in India. On each return trip to Mysore, she brings these supplies for the organizations and children.

Funding for these donations comes directly from AYH class proceeds and AYH student donations.
