Rachel Mills

For years I avoided exercise. Exercise felt like work, an obligation, something unpleasant to be avoided. In 2016 I attended my first Zumba class and fell in love. Dancing makes me feel confident and free in a way nothing else does. I became licensed to teach Zumba in 2017 and have been sharing the fun and joy of movement with others ever since.

Teaching style

My focus is on creating welcoming, inclusive experiences for people to find (or rediscover) the joy of movement. I’m committed to making fitness what I believe it was always meant to be: *a fun, social experience *accessible and welcoming to everyone *inclusive of all genders, bodies, fitness levels and abilities *a celebration of how awesome we already are!

I look to promote body liberation, joyful movement, and inclusion, recognizing that I come from a position of privilege. I do this by offering a variety of movement options, encouraging participants to listen to their own bodies, and supporting them to move in ways that feel good for their unique body. Through my language and approach to movement, I aim to disrupt diet culture and healthism.

My personal philosophy is “There are no mistakes in Zumba, only unexpected solos."
