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.
