Owner & Trainer, Size Diverse Pilates Teacher Training
Rachel Piper is a self-proclaimed Star Wars, Science, & Pilates nerd. She is a classically trained comprehensive Pilates teacher who believes that you should love your body for what it can do no matter your size, your age, or your current abilities.
Rachel strives to help others find joy in movement while feeling included within the community. She works towards creating space for people who might not think they have a place in Pilates whether it’s because of gender identity, race, size or shape, physical state, or being neurodiverse.
Rachel has been a trainer in the biotech industry for over 20 years and in management for over 15 years. She loves reading, writing, and editing technical documents, as well as using a visual, auditory, reading, and kinesthetic approach to training and team building.
In 2021, with the support of her mentor, she decided to combine her passion for robust training processes and writing with the Pilates method, which led her to writing a series of Pilates Teacher Training Manuals that are size inclusive and contain a range of content creators who have diverse life experiences and different body shapes to help new trainees and teachers see a diverse set of people practicing Pilates.
She is the owner and trainer for Size Diverse Pilates Teacher Training which is a classical program infused with accessibility and creativity.
