"Words simply aren’t enough to describe the impact Rachel Rafiefar has made on my professional and personal development.
Through her, I became the Pilates teacher, energy worker, physiotherapist, employer, business owner and mentor to others, that I am today.
Having her as my mentor has been a gift, as she has not only taught me knowledge and skills, but the valuable lessons of being an authentic and creative practitioner, as well as teacher.
Her detailed approach, always involves structured learning, constructive feedback processes and a personalized approach. Most importantly, it also brings an energy that heals all the barriers I may have, towards becoming the best version of my self.
I met Rachel when I was 19 years old. I am now 36, a business owner as well as a teacher and I can honestly say that I am still learning from Rachel every single day. "

The first time I met with Rachel was back in 2002, when I was doing my Pilates Teacher Training in London. Years later, our paths crossed again, and how lucky I was. It was during a hard period of my life, where I was troubled and confused, I had lost my motivation and I was all over the place. After discussing it with Rachel, the chaotic thoughts came into place and everything became clearer. I started the mentorship program and it was one of the best things I had done for my career and well-being. The whole program and Rachel’s teaching approach were very structured and detailed, well organized, thorough and with a lot of material and sources to use as an assisting tool for your study.
I can’t recommend Rachel enough, she is a wonderful teacher, mentor and person. She has tons of knowledge, she is devoted, enthusiastic, communicative, creative, authentic. She is the positive person you want to have by your side, to encourage and assist you to progress, in order to become a better teacher and a person. Being around Rachel is a privilege, where learning and growth never ends.
