Studio Owner and Master Pilates Instructor

Rachel Williams

  • Studio Owner and 2nd Generation Master Pilates Instructor
  • BASI Comprehensive Master-Certified Pilates Instructor
  • Neurokinetic Therapy® (NKT®) Level 2 Certified Practitioner
  • Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex® (P-DTR®) Trained Practitioner
  • Practitioner of The VOILÀ Method of Structural Joint Balancing
  • Amino Neuro Frequency (ANF) Therapist
  • TRX® Instructor
  • Gold Certified PiYo™ Instructor
  • Certified Zumba® Instructor (Multiple)

Always active and outgoing, Rachel has been involved in fitness and sports since she was in high school. While training for a mini-marathon, Rachel suffered a debilitating back injury. After a major spinal fusion operation, she was confined to a bed or wheelchair for 80% of her waking hours.

After two separate rounds of traditional physical therapy, heavy medication, and overwhelming frustration with mainstream rehabilitation, Rachel committed to private Pilates equipment sessions. This was her last effort to regain strength, endurance, flexibility, and mobility.

Within a few sessions, the results were amazing and inspiring. Her pain subsides was able to participate in her day-to-day activities stronger than ever before.

A sense of joy and duty has fueled Rachel's desire to share the life-changing benefits of the Pilates method. She completed 2 separate Pilates Master certifications, along with several other fitness certifications.

Rachel completed the comprehensive Pilates certification from the world-renowned Body Arts and Sciences International (BASI) and eventually completed another series of training to complete BASI's Master-Mentor certification.

Rachel was selected among only a few individuals in the world to take part in the Pilates Master Mentor Program. This program was led by Lolita San Miguel - one of only two people to have received official certification from Joseph Pilates himself. This intensive, two-year, by-invitation only program, described as "The Spirit of The Method", was received by Ms. San Miguel directly from Joseph and Clara Pilates.

After completing this second Pilates Master certification, Rachel wishes to share the tradition of quality with other Pilates instructors. Rachel is one of the very few in the world to hold this honored distinction. She the only Pilates instructor in Indiana to have completed this program.

Rachel considered her Pilates Master certifications as the beginning of helping others with pain and physical dysfunction. She then also completed training in four separate types of therapeutic modalities - Neurokinetic Therapy® (NKT®), Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex® (P-DTR®), The VOILÀ Method of Structural Joint Balancing, and Amino Neuro Frequency Therapy.

The results have been nothing short of miraculous for the many clients who have benefited from these techniques.

Rachel's personal experiences and love for the Pilates method continues to drive her toward sharing its benefits with as many people as she can. She credits Pilates for balancing her body and providing her the ability to return to life. Rachel hopes that you will allow her an opportunity to share some of the amazing benefits of the Pilates method with you.

"Pilates changed my life forever... Allow me to show you how it can change yours!"

He began instructing indoor cycling classes at the Greenwood (Indiana) Community Center where he had also been a member for 10 years. After being involved in a car accident in November 2004, Kevin added yoga to his weight-training and cycling, which facilitated his recovery - and discovered that it's an amazing workout. It's fun, challenging and easy to practice at home and even while on vacation, which is why Kevin encourages his students to fit a yoga workout into their busy schedules.

He began taking Pilates mat classes in 2007 and found this challenging method to be highly beneficial toward developing even greater strength and flexibility, not to mention very enjoyable.

Having found the benefits of the Pilates method as nothing short of amazing, Kevin believes that you will also find that it will improve your performance in other workout routines, increase overall strength, lead to a healthier lifestyle, help you to achieve your fitness goals, and bring about significant change in your physical appearance - all while helping you simply feel better.

Pilates Instructor

Emily Richard

Emily has always loved finding ways to stay active. She regularly plays tennis, cycles, practices yoga, lifts weights, and attends group fitness classes. Pilates became a pivotal part of her wellness routine after acute hip pain kept her from participating in many of the things that she used to enjoy. She found that Pilates allowed her to maintain fitness, build muscle, and find relief from constant pain.

After developing a regular practice, Emily decided she wanted to take a deeper dive. While researching training programs, Emily read Rachel William's story of how Pilates allowed her to recover from back surgery. This profoundly resonated with Emily, so she decided to attend Pilates instructor training at Indy School of Pilates. She now has the privilege of helping others to learn about the method which allowed her to heal from chronic pain and to gain strength.

Outside of the studio, Emily can usually be found volunteering for Love of Labs, a local dog rescue group, or driving all over the city in search of the perfect brunch.

Throughout her youth and young adulthood, Samantha was a dedicated dancer. Later in life, she struggled to find an enjoyable exercise replacement. She decided to start taking classes at Indy House of Pilates, where she found what had been missing for several years.

Samantha's renewed love for exercise helped her to improve posture, relieve back pain, and reduce stress. She has especially enjoyed how the Pilates method has increased her physical strength and mind-body awareness.

Samantha decided to deepen her understanding and knowledge of the Pilates method and completed instructor training at Indy School of Pilates. She looks forward to sharing her love of Pilates with others so they can also develop a stronger body and mind.

Outside of the studio, Samantha works as a full-time optometrist with IU Health Physicians. She also enjoys traveling, taking her beagle for walks, and enjoying time with family and friends.

Massage Therapist

Yena Mae

Yena initially attended college to pursue a degree to become a physician's assistant. She knew that she wanted to help people with optimizing their overall well-being, but was not sure which type of career would best suit this desire. Soon after, Yena realized that she needed to choose a different career path and discovered a deep interest in massage therapy. She later graduated from the Indiana College of Sports and Medical Massage, which is now known as the Indiana Wellness College.

Following her passion for helping people to feel their best, Yena loves to provide her clients valuable self-care advice specifically tailored toward improving their well-being. She says, "I am not the healer, but an advocate toward leading a client through their own healing journey."

Yena skillfully applies various therapeutic methods in this regard, such as deep tissue massage, Swedish massage, stretching techniques, compressions, cupping, and aromatherapy. Incorporating essential oils into her massage practice enhances the client's experience and results.

Outside of her work as a therapist, Yena enjoys hiking, trying new recipes (and eating them too!), playing video games, meditating, practicing yoga and Pilates.

She looks forward to working together with you, offering guidance and encouragement toward achieving the best version of you!

When not in the studio, Sarah can be found managing her family’s private counseling practice, playing guitar, or snuggling with her cat, Min.

Frequently Asked Questions

Select a question below to find an answer

What results can I expect from Pilates?

Adding Pilates to your life will result in various physical changes, like increased flexibility and range of motion, increased core strength, decreased back pain and increased balance. In addition to the common physical changes Pilates practitioners experience, many report improved memory, increased mental clarity, decreased stress and increased overall self-awareness. Although these results do not happen overnight, most individuals will begin to feel changes within the first 10 sessions or less!

What should I wear to my class?

For Pilates, Fitness Barre and Yoga classes, we recommend well-fitting workout clothing and bare feet or grip socks. Don’t worry if you don’t have grip socks. We have some available for purchase at the studio!

For Zumba, TRX and Strong Nation classes, wear tennis shoes that lace up and are tied. We do not recommend slip-on shoes for these classes.

Why do I need to do 3 Introductory Private Pilates Sessions before joining Pilates equipment classes?

These introductory sessions are required prior to joining equipment classes for a several reasons. The most important reason is that we want you to have a safe, enjoyable and effective workout experience. During these 3 sessions, you will get more comfortable using the Pilates Equipment safely. You will also learn the foundational Pilates exercises, upon which the rest of our exercises are built!

BOOK YOUR INTRO CLASSES

I have never really exercised and have never taken a Yoga or Pilates class. Will I be able to keep up with others?

YES! We adapt every class to the particular group of participants in attendance. On occasion, we offer intermediate and advanced classes, which are marked accordingly on the scheduler.

Why aren't membership prices listed on the IHP website?

This is due to the variety of memberships we offer, and how we can also custom-tailor a membership to a client’s needs and preferences. If you would like to learn more about our memberships. then please click here to set up some time to meet with our client experience manager. She will be happy to discuss your personal needs to help you select the best package for you.

What are grip socks?

“Grip socks” are socks with small rubber grips on the bottom.. Think of hospital socks with way better colors and a much better fit! These type socks are great for yoga and Pilates to prevent sliding and to keep your feet warm during class where you would otherwise be barefoot.

What does it mean to be on the waitlist?

Being on the waitlist is like being on “standby”. When the available spots for a class are full, we open up a waitlist for others who may want to attend. If someone releases their spot in class, the next person on the waitlist will be assigned that spot in the class.

From Our Students

The two hours I spend a week at Pilates classes are the times I really look forward to. It gives me the time I need to focus on myself without worrying about home, kids, or work. I can't imagine not going now!

Kathy

Pilates was a workout that I was able to do even with the existing physical limitations I had. The instructor customizes every session so that it is challenging and appropriate for me, but still safe.

Mike

I love the strength and stamina I've gained! I used to be tired and sluggish especially in the afternoon. Since taking classes, I can get through the entire day now!

Amy

After attending consistently, even my husband noticed things were changing everywhere!

Beth

I love the way Pilates helps my posture while I sit at my desk and move throughout the day. Before taking classes I never noticed how much I was really missing. Everything in my body just feels better now and I walk with confidence!

Sue

The instructors not only gets you moving, but also take the time to educate you about how your body moves... I love that!
