Rachel Wilson

Rachel Wilson was born and raised in Washington, DC, where she played varsity basketball, volleyball, and ran track in high school. After high school, Rachel moved to Philadelphia to play Division I women’s basketball at the University of Pennsylvania.  After she graduated from Penn, Rachel moved to New York City and taught 8th grade English in the Bronx, New York for two years.  During this time, Rachel received her Master of Science Degree in Teaching at Pace University.  Shortly thereafter, Rachel attended law school at the University of Michigan Law School. While in Ann Arbor, Rachel fell in love with barre classes and took classes practically every day of the week, sometimes twice a day.

After law school, Rachel returned to D.C. to work for a higher education non-profit association.  During this time, she also taught barre classes for over two years at D.C.’s first barre studio, B.fit.  Rachel trained new teachers at B.fit and at Richmond Barre, and provided ongoing training to instructors. Rachel moved to Columbus, Ohio in late 2013 to work for a non-profit organization and founded barre-OM® in early 2014.

Rachel’s other interests include yoga, going to the movies, rooting for the Seattle Seahawks, and spending time with her friends and family. Rachel completed Laurel Hodory’s 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training in May 2014.
