Rachel Poston is a Certified Yoga Instructor and rock climber. Both her love for yoga and climbing came at a young age. Rachel Started rock climbing at summer camp and local gyms when she was around 8 years old, around the same time she happened upon a book about yoga. With a gymnastics background she kept finding herself popping in yoga VHS tapes and started attending classes regularly while in college. In 2013 Rachel ventured to Costa Rica where she studied yoga and became a certified yoga instructor. Since then she started practicing studying the traditional Mysore style of yoga, which focuses on breath and movement with little distraction. In 2015 Rachel rediscovered her love for rock climbing and her love for yoga translated well to the wall. She has since spent time climbing in Italy, the Dakotas, Wyoming, Colorado, ice climbing in New Hampshire and of course all over North Carolina. Rachel started working with Carolina Adventure Guides in 2016 as a yoga instructor and an assistant guide.
I have been an avid adventurer for the past decade, during which I received a B.S. and an M.S. in Geology and Geophysics. My research and my career have taken me to many areas off the beaten path, most of which required backpacking, camping, climbing, and exploration. I began recreationally climbing 2 years ago and discovered my true passion for the sport with Carolina Adventure Guides. I feel so lucky to be able to combine my love for the earth with my love of climbing!

there is nothing quite like the outdoors.........
Becky has been climbing for many years. She knew right away spending time out on the rocks would become one of her preferred ways to enjoy the great outdoors she already loves. Over time her passion has only intensified and expanded to ice climbing and combined with her love of travel to include mountaineering. She is captivated by climbing's unique way of drawing a person's mind and body together in a truly unified manner to overcome the challenges it presents, and accomplish amazing things you otherwise couldn't have thought possible. Having never really experienced this dynamic effect through anything else in her life, it inspires her to share her enthusiasm, technical know-how, and background of safety though mentoring and helping to guide others along their personal adventure journeys. Aside from climbing, she has embarked on many adventure trips across the globe taking her throughout the United States and as far abroad as Australia and New Zealand.
She believes richness in life comes from sharing your love and passions with the world and encouraging others in the same ways.
The wild has called to me since I was a child living in Dallas, TX. However, it wasn’t until I was
on the verge of adulthood that I was able to answer it. I found rock climbing in college and after
graduating with a degree in Kinesiology I took off to Utah to work in Wilderness Adventure
Therapy. That’s where I found the mountains. They spoke to me in a way nothing else had and it
changed the trajectory of my life. From there I travelled along the West Coast climbing in
Yosemite and exploring the micro and macroscopic world around. That ultimately prepared me
for my walk from Delaware to California where living in the elements and solitude taught me
about human connection. I have rock climbed for over five years now, am certified as a
wilderness first responder, have been trained in the art of yoga, and am a student of life. Amanda started working with Carolina Adventure Guides in 2019 an assistant guide.
