Hi! I’m Rachel Thompson and my Pilates journey began in 2014. I left a desk job in corporate America and I have been happy ever since! After taking a few Pilates classes there was no doubt teaching was the path to follow.
Pilates improves posture, gives balance and grace, relieves stress and brings calm.
I completed my training with The Pilates Center in 2016. After completing this program I took the PMA exam and became a Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher. I decided to begin the training for the Masters program in 2019 to learn more and further develop my teaching skills.
Pilates is about more than exercises, or shapes, or poses; it’s about movement and having the freedom to move.
Teaching Pilates is fun because there’s so much to learn even after studying the exercises. It’s about being in control of your body when you can’t control other things. I enjoy working directly with people, one on one, to build these connections.
You can find me teaching Pilates at Club Pilates in Libertyville, IL and Club Pilates Buffalo Grove, IL. If you’re not local, let’s meet virtually for your own private Pilates session at home!
