Rachel White, the owner of SPACE Yoga Studio, began her yoga journey in 1997 at Ashtanga Yoga Studio in Norman, OK. Throughout the years, yoga has been her constant…the place to connect and feel. In 2012, she made the choice to deepen her practice and enroll in teacher training at YogaLife in Norman, OK. She received her RYT-200 in 2013 and began teaching. Throughout the years she has found many new roles in the yoga community. From becoming Reiki certified in 2015, to finding her voice and leading guided meditations, Rachel has embraced her yoga journey with immense love and gratitude. Opening SPACE Yoga Studio in 2018 has brought more roles and opportunities for her own personal growth and expansion. She currently teaches hot vinyasa flow, deep slow flow, chair yoga, and gentle/beginner’s yoga. She also is very involved in the Norman community, donating time and resources to help others.
Rachel truly believes in co-creating. She is deeply passionate about guiding others to be fully present in their bodies, and to discover what they need and what they do not. She hopes to share space with you soon, in whatever way that manifests!
Melissa Hobson is a Sound Healer, Usui-Tibetan Reiki Master, Lithotherapist and a Neonatal Intensive Care RN. She is a deeply spiritual and devoted student of the Universe. Her passion for holistic healing modalities came from experiencing a personal health journey that Western medicine alone could not heal. She became relentless in her pursuit for knowledge, dedicating her time and energy to truly understanding these ancient vibrational techniques, and how specific frequencies heal the body, mind and soul.
Melissa has been doing individual healing sessions, workshops and group sound events in Oklahoma since 2013. Her deepest desire is to create a peaceful and loving space, where people can realize their creative power, strengthen their own intuition and connect more authentically with themselves + the world around them!
The Creating Space within retreat was the absolute exact thing I needed in my life at that exact time. I had pretty much been working non stop the previous year and this was a much needed pause for me to catch my breath and regroup. – Laurey
The most beautiful, relaxing week i’ve ever had! My heart was so expanded with love and contentment! I need to do this for myself more often!!
The retreat in Costa Rica was truly one of the best trips of my life. Starting the day with yoga, being surrounded by the lush natural beauty, spotting I monkeys and sloths, experiencing the powerful and beautiful La Fortuna waterfall, soaking in the “pura vida” — it was all wonderful.
I loved the sound bath and learning about using my own sound to chant the chakra sounds. I loved the positive energy that made me feel supported while experiencing new things! – Amy A.
I entered a new state of consciousness during these sound sessions which was unknown to me.
So easy to follow Rachel’s directions. The way she describes transitions in movement are perfect, especially for those of us who are relatively inexperienced. And her continual reminders that there is no pressure to be perfect, only to listen to our bodies. Ten thumbs up. – Nicole B.
My body felt amazing after each class and I really liked the choice of music and different intensity/ focus of each class.
Rachel and Melissa were on site and available to answer questions, talk with us or just hang out. Sunrise yoga was the most amazing way to start the day and the sound baths were the perfect end to the day. – L.G.

We cannot emphasize more the importance of travel insurance. As we all know, especially as travelers, “life happens.” Whether it’s family, work, mother nature, or a change of heart, it is important to be prepared in case you need to unexpectedly change your travel plans. Often for less than $150, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip.
We have partnered with two insurance companies: Trawick International and CSA Travel Insurance (available for U.S. Residents only).
Read more about our insurance partners and their policies here. We encourage you to research the insurance company and policy that best meets your needs.
