Our Instructors

Rachel Goransson

Owner / Instructor

As a ballet dancer, Rachel was introduced to Pilates as a form of cross training and injury prevention. She fell in love with it immediately and worked to incorporate Pilates into daily regimen. She attributes her relatively injury-free career to Pilates and has enjoyed performing professionally in various ballets with the Mercyhurst Dancers, Lake Erie Ballet, and the Nashville Ballet.

Rachel has always had an interest in the human body in addition to maintaining optimal performance as a dancer. As an instructor, she strives to teach my students to work with their own individual bodies, and to make every exercise personal to each student's needs.

Rachel holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Mercyhurst College and her comprehensive Pilates Certification with Balanced Body.
