Our Teachers

Fedde headshotRachel Fedde

Rachel Fedde found that years of competitive fencing had left her muscles tight and turned to yoga to regain flexibility. She soon grew to appreciate yoga for not just its physical benefits but also the focus and calm that the practice brings. She completed her RYT-200 hour certification at Yogamaya in Chelsea, NYC. In teaching she hopes to share the freedom and peace she's found in yoga with others. In what little time she's not on the fencing strip or on the mat, she's also an award-winning film and television editor and loves to travel.

Alexandra Paddock

Alexandra, who responds to Alex, Ham, Pad but mostly Allie, first came to yoga to rehab a hamstring torn dancing. Through the process of her recovery, she healed a leg and found a new way of moving that in turn awoke a sense of mind-body-spirit connection that has fueled her ever since. Alexandra received her 200-hr certification with the inspiring teachers at Yogamaya in Chelsea, NYC. Always with a playful spirit, Alexandra's classes aim to balance thoughtful inquiry with fine attunement to detail. Alexandra is grateful for the practice of yoga for helping her see with her heart and hear with her bones.



Annabelle McDonald

Annabelle has been practicing yoga for many years in NYC, but recently decided to immerse herself more deeply in the practice. Taking a step back from a career in the television business, she earned her 200-hour RYT teaching credentials at Yogamaya in Chelsea. From there, new doors opened and she now finds herself spending her time doing a combination of all the things she loves: practicing yoga, teaching yoga, making videos, and getting more quality time with Max the cat. Annabelle is also a first degree Reiki practioner.



Margo headshotMargo Josephson

Margo received her 200-hour Teacher Certification from Yogamaya New York after completing the Summer ’16 Training Intensive. Yoga has always been an integral part of her life. You could say she came out of the womb practicing, sleeping on her back, legs sticking straight up. She found the beauty in yoga, uniting the headspace and physical body as a cohesive whole, providing her with the means to shape space. While off the mat, she works at the barre studio Bar Method Brooklyn, runs, dances, writes, and soaks in knowledge through all forms of language – written, spoken, painted, and sung.
