About Rachel Tyler
Hello, I’m Rachel Tyler
I have been a movement educator since 2012. For me my work is much more than a job, it is my life and I hope to change yours.
After my second pregnancy, this one with two large twin boys, my body felt broken with a nagging low back and hip pain that only felt worse after my regular visits to the gym.
I started my journey with Pilates with a strong personal specialism in core rehabilitation especially postnatal restoration. I discovered that exercise isn’t about sweating it out in a gym doing repetitive movements but balancing out muscle length with strength and moving all your body parts as much as possible.
I went on to study with Katy Bowman and gained my qualification in Restorative Exercise through the Nutritious Movement® Center.
I continue to further my study within the field of biomechanics, alignment and movement therapy and have presently training with Anatomy in Motion.
As a teacher and mentor, I lead numerous workshops and group classes along with a private practice helping clients move and feel better. I live and breathe health and fitness and am constantly updating my knowledge and skills.

"I felt my feet weren’t functioning well (ganglion on one and plantar fasciitis on the other) and that specific exercises could help. I had been to Rachel’s classes before and know she is good and with a scientific background."
"The workshop was truly informative and interesting. I'm so happy I was able to attend. I shall be starting the exercises tonight."
"I have a problem with my Achilles tendon that every morning when I get up it is numb for 10 minutes and I hobble about. After the workshop it stopped thanks to the stretching you got us to do."
"Rachel's Pilates classes are really excellent. She provides a wide variety of exercises introducing new ones every week to maintain enthusiasm as well as to exercise different parts of the body. Her teaching style is friendly and encouraging as well as very well informed. I can highly recommend these classes to all who want worthwhile exercise in a fun environment."
"I have attended both a Foot Health and a Pelvic Floor Health workshop and learnt so much. Lots of practical information with clear instructions for exercising at home. These are well worth attending whether you have an immediate issue or as a preventative measure for the future!"
“I love Rachel’s Pilates! It’s great that it’s not the same every week as she uses a variety of things to help strengthen and tone different areas. I particularly like using the soft ballsand can do similar exercises at home. Rachel always talks us through the different moves and checks we are doing them right. I have had a lot of back problems in the past but Rachel’s Pilates has really helped me strengthen my core and I have had no back pain since I started. I would really recommend Rachel’s Pilates!”
