Meet the teachers



About 20 years ago, Omar was introduced to pilates by a friend when he was in training to become a sports coach but felt like he was missing something. He fell in love with the principles of pilates and the effects it has on both body and mind, and soon he became an all round pilates instructor. He opened his own studio and started to train physiotherapists to use pilates for their clients. Omar is excited to continue his training work, and spark others with his passion for the practice.


Rachel has been active her whole life, using her body as an instrument to literally dance around the world. It was at age 19 that she quit ballet and discovered yoga and pilates, and committed to a 4 years study to start guiding classes professionally. With almost 20 years of teaching experience and an everlasting passion for pilates, she is beyond thrilled to start a new journey of sharing her knowledge through this pilates teacher training. There is so much to share!
