Rachel is an engaging and highly experienced antenatal instructor and we are so pleased she is supporting us with our Mams on the Move programme. Let’s find out more about Rachel...
‘Hi! I’m Rachel. I qualified as a Pilates teacher in 1989 which has led to a lifelong fascination with movement and the body. This has led me to train in other exercise modalities amongst which biomechanics coach and yoga are strong passions. I am currently an assessor and tutor with AIQ and guest lectures for other training schools.
After the birth of my son, I became fascinated with the process of birth and how exercise can help women through this changing time in their lives. I went on to train as an Antenatal Educator at Luton University with the NCT and combined her two passions together to create Move to Birth, Mamas Pilates and Yoga.
As the Chair of the Guild of Pregnancy and postnatal Exercise Instructors I have been working with Active Northumberland to reach out into all parts of Northumberland. I love to work with pre and post natal women and support them through this special time in their lives. I have a strong focus on breathing, empowerment and helping women find their way through pregnancy, birth and motherhood’
