Rachel's Pilates mat and reformer training has been undertaken with Polestar Pilates UK. She has also recently completed the Dance and Movement for Parkinson's training. Throughout Rachel's life she has enjoyed exploring movement and dance. Initially she trained and performed as a professional ballet dancer. Over the past 18 years she has working in education and enjoyed any opportunity to integrate movement into learning. Rachel holds a BA Hons Degree in Dance Education at Canterbury Christchurch University, and her research specialised in the benefits of movement and exercise for the elderly. It was through the use of Pilates on the degree course that she first fell in love with Pilates and realised the long term benefits it could provide.
Rachel has a dog call Monty, who is regularly found on the Pilates mat with her at home. A lot of her spare time is taken up as a swim mum with a daughter who swims at county, regional and national level, so you often will find her in a range of swimming pools up and down the country!
Rachel is available at our Sittingbourne and Sheerness studios.
