Hi! I’m Rachel Thompson and I love teaching Pilates. I went from being active and busy to slowing down because of knee pain. This knee pain put a stop to my running and I began Pilates. When I started Pilates, my pain went away, and strength took its place. Now I do Pilates everyday and feel strong!
