Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Rachel is knowledgeable, accommodating, and goal-oriented

    I had the best first time pilate experience with Rachel. Her studio is very comfy and professional. Rachel is an expert and very systematic and thoughtful in her teaching. I felt in good hands with my recent elbow injuries. I had a great workout where I felt all my deep muscles are fully stretched and it was so refreshing afterwards. Look forward to taking more lessons with Rachel in the coming weeks.

  • Great experience!

    Had a blast. Rachel is knowledgable and made the session fun. She will corrects you imbalances and keeps a hawk's eye on you. Even tho' I have just done 1 session so fay would def. recommend Rachel!!

  • Rachel is dedicated to helping people live with the least pain and greatest comfort possible. She is always there when I need her.

    Rachel is gifted at what she can see and translates that into an experience that is tailored and so helpful. She has many modalities that she has worked with such as yoga, dance, and fascia release, plus, a clear understanding of anatomy. She brings this all to a Pilates session in an integrated way and understands the body as a whole system. She is a tremendous teacher with a tenacious focus at every class.

  • Best ever!

    I've been working with Rachel twice a week for years and years. This is a funny, witty, caring, interesting person who happens to know more about the body than anyone I have ever met. If we start to stretch and it's not working, she knows the counter stretch and then probably 20 other ways to work that same muscle group. It pays to work with a dancer and someone who now teaches that in addition to pilates. So professional, looking to achieve her goal of building my body into a comfortable place, instead of one with aches and pains. Thank you Rachel!

  • rachel is knowledgeable, enthusiastic & immensely intuitive. she’s got it going on! and she’s special in that she’s thoughtful, kind & curious as to how each movement lands in my body. i genuinely like her!!

    Thorough evaluation- enjoyed the explanation of how my body was moving.

Rachel has helped transform me from a person with chronic back pain to a person who rarely notices I have a back issue. She is not only proficient in all areas of palates she makes it fun and interesting as she designs custom sessions each lesson rarely doing the same routine twice.

Rachel is working with me to give me better functional movement. She sees what is and isn’t working, then engages the issues with knowledge, skill and the right amount of cues and humor. The best of the best and I’m so glad I found her!

During the corona virus, Rachel has been more than helpful! She has been very mindful that I am 65. She offered to buy groceries for me when she goes to the market and leave them outside her door for me, in her little courtyard. Knowing how badly I need to stretch and exercise, she even arranged zoom video calls that she recorded and sent me! What a great personal pilates trainer. It doesn't get better than this!

There is nothing to dislike. These sessions have been a huge help to limiting the pain associated with herniated discs and increasing my range of motion.

Rachel always makes our workouts fun and challenging. She’s always changing the routine just enough to keep things interesting while still hitting all the muscle groups. My husband and I go together and Rachel is able to meet both of our needs keeping us both happy and fit.

My training with Rachel had been amazing and life-changing. She is always aware of my level of ability and especially insightful to any health or physical issues I have had. She is aware of my body's weakness (my posture) and has been working with me on core strength, always with my goals in mind to improve my posture. The workouts ALWAYS improve upon my fitness, yet she makes the sessions fun!!!! I cannot recommend her enough!!! Truly transforming!!

It's like a breath of fresh air to work with someone on stretching, that knows how to do it in a way that won't hurt your body. While there are times I have been sore afterwards, because I haven't used those muscles maybe ever (lol), over all I feel safe in the hands of Pilates with Rachel. It's great that she's so much fun to work with. Makes the time go fast! Thanks Rachel!
