From Our Students

The two hours I spend each week taking Pilates classes are the times I really look forward to the most. It gives me the time I need to focus on myself without worrying about home, kids, or work. I can't imagine not going now!


Pilates was a workout that I was able to do even with existing physical limitations. The instructor customizes every session so that it is challenging and appropriate for me, but still safe.


I love the strength and stamina I've gained! I used to be tired and sluggish, especially in the afternoon. Since taking classes, I can get through the entire day now!


After attending consistently, even my husband noticed things were changing everywhere!


I love the way Pilates helps my posture while I sit at my desk and move throughout the day. Before taking classes I never noticed how much I was really missing. Everything in my body just feels better now and I walk with confidence!


The instructors not only get you moving, but also take the time to educate you about how your body moves... I love that!


Fantastic studio & fantastic group of instructors! I love the variety and the number of different types of classes offered. Awesome place to hang out and get fit!

Studio Owner and Master Pilates Instructor

Rachel Williams

  • Studio Owner and 2nd Generation Master Pilates Instructor
  • BASI Comprehensive Master-Certified Pilates Instructor
  • Neurokinetic Therapy® (NKT®) Level 2 Certified Practitioner
  • Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex® (P-DTR®) Trained Practitioner
  • Practitioner of The VOILÀ Method of Structural Joint Balancing
  • Amino Neuro Frequency (ANF) Therapist
  • TRX® Instructor
  • Gold Certified PiYo™ Instructor
  • Certified Zumba® Instructor (Multiple)

Always active and outgoing, Rachel has been involved in fitness and sports since she was in high school. While training for a mini-marathon, Rachel suffered a debilitating back injury. After a major spinal fusion operation, she was confined to a bed or wheelchair for 80% of her waking hours.

After two separate rounds of traditional physical therapy, heavy medication, and overwhelming frustration with mainstream rehabilitation, Rachel committed to private Pilates equipment sessions. This was her last effort to regain strength, endurance, flexibility, and mobility.

Within a few sessions, the results were amazing and inspiring. Her pain subsides was able to participate in her day-to-day activities stronger than ever before.

A sense of joy and duty has fueled Rachel's desire to share the life-changing benefits of the Pilates method. She completed 2 separate Pilates Master certifications, along with several other fitness certifications.

Rachel completed the comprehensive Pilates certification from the world-renowned Body Arts and Sciences International (BASI) and eventually completed another series of training to complete BASI's Master-Mentor certification.

Rachel was selected among only a few individuals in the world to take part in the Pilates Master Mentor Program. This program was led by Lolita San Miguel - one of only two people to have received official certification from Joseph Pilates himself. This intensive, two-year, by-invitation only program, described as "The Spirit of The Method", was received by Ms. San Miguel directly from Joseph and Clara Pilates.

After completing this second Pilates Master certification, Rachel wishes to share the tradition of quality with other Pilates instructors. Rachel is one of the very few in the world to hold this honored distinction. She the only Pilates instructor in Indiana to have completed this program.

Rachel considered her Pilates Master certifications as the beginning of helping others with pain and physical dysfunction. She then also completed training in four separate types of therapeutic modalities - Neurokinetic Therapy® (NKT®), Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex® (P-DTR®), The VOILÀ Method of Structural Joint Balancing, and Amino Neuro Frequency Therapy.

The results have been nothing short of miraculous for the many clients who have benefited from these techniques.

Rachel's personal experiences and love for the Pilates method continues to drive her toward sharing its benefits with as many people as she can. She credits Pilates for balancing her body and providing her the ability to return to life. Rachel hopes that you will allow her an opportunity to share some of the amazing benefits of the Pilates method with you.

"Pilates changed my life forever... Allow me to show you how it can change yours!"

Pilates Instructor

Jessica Paris

Jessica's love for movement bloomed 12 years ago when a friend talked her into attending a Pilates class together. As someone who had never been "in love" with movement, she was hesitant, but decided to give it a try. After the first session her interest had been sparked and she was HOOKED!

In 2018, Jessica was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and began the journey to recovery while also learning to accept and understand the new "normal" of her body. She cannot express how instrumental Pilates was toward attaining body awareness, proper core activation, stretching and breath work - nor how these benefits helped in her speedy recovery.

Jessica knew that finding the right studio would be key to aiding in her healing process after surgery. She had been looking for a studio that focused on form, function, control and growth in an environment that would be safe for her healing body... and Indy House of Pilates was the answer.

After becoming a dedicated member of the IHP studio community, Jessica decided to take the next step on her Pilates journey by becoming an instructor. She greatly valued everything that the Pilates method had done for her mind and body, so it only made sense to share her knowledge and experience with others.

As a Pilates instructor, Jessica finds love and passion in helping her students to realize their potential and strength. With a background in psychology, she is amazed by the way the mind can limit the body. Empowering other women to stop self-limiting beliefs and to begin embracing their power and strength drives Jessica to become a better teacher by expanding her expertise at every opportunity.

"I cannot wait to help you realize the power that lies within and how it can transform your everyday life!"

Sarah Wells

Sarah is a trained classical singer, actress, and theatre artist, with a B.S. in voice and an outside field in theatre from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. She lived in New York from 2014-2019 working in casting for film, television, and theatre, and later as an administrator in the Juilliard School Drama Division prior to relocating back to Indiana.

During her time at IU, she took a particular interest in theatrical movement and stage combat. She had the opportunity to learn and experiment with various movement and dance techniques. Though this experience, she came to realize that Pilates was much more than just a workout technique and discovered a whole legacy of Pilates intersecting with the arts.

Having completed the Indy School of Pilates' instructor training, Sarah is thrilled to be a part of the IHP team. Pilates has been an amazing way for her to reconnect with her body’s capacity for balance, strength, and flexibility, while greatly improving her overall health and well-being. She’s excited to share her passion for the Pilates method with clients to them grow and strengthen!

When not in the studio, Sarah can be found managing her family’s private counseling practice, playing guitar, or snuggling with her cat, Min.

Yoga Instructor & Massage Therapist

Corey Sobah

Corey has had a lifetime of seeking to optimize health and wellness with the goal of helping people to explore, heal, and develop in each with an integral view of their importance.

As a full-time university student studying social sciences and philosophy, Corey began exploring the Yoga Tradition. With a growing family, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS, also known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or ME), and full-time studies, stress built up and overwhelming depression began to set in.

His yoga practice began then and both the depth and breadth of the tradition surprised and excited him. This played an indispensable role in overcoming depression.

By the start of the following school year, Corey had transferred to Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, as a Yoga Studies major. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Yoga Studies and a 1000 hour yoga teacher training certificate from Naropa University.

This experience seemed naturally to lead into the next phase of acquiring the skills and knowledge to help and heal people: therapeutic massage and bodywork training and practice. Corey enrolled in Indiana Therapeutic Massage School with what was left of his GI Bill. He has completed 98 hours of continuing education, including training in the John F. Barnes approach to myofascial release and Association of Bodywork and Massage Professionals courses.

Corey also has a B.A. degree in theology and a variety of volunteer experience in teaching and leadership roles. He is certified by the American Red Cross in first aid, CPR, and AED.

Working with Indy House of Pilates members, he looks forward to combining these effects with those of Pilates and yoga to help you define and meet your wellness goals.

Corey's most important work, though, is as a father to his four young daughters and as a husband. Practicing and teaching skills in and guiding connection with nature is another area of work and interest for him. He is a lifelong learner, always taking in new information and perspectives and working towards self-mastery. He tries to make time among all this for his own yoga practice and self-care, making music (playing instruments, especially guitar, and singing), reading, lifting weights, spiritual studies and practices, and good conversation.

Corey would love to offer the skills, knowledge, and wisdom from these journeys to help you reach your wellness goals both on the massage table and on the mat, and he looks forward to learning amd growing more with you!

She has pursued continuing education through various coursework, workshops and certifications. A big follower of fitness trends, Jessica has taught everything from Fitness Bootcamp to Aqua Aerobics and Spinning.

While living in the UK, Jessica began her Pilates practice and experienced a complete transformation. After many years of weightlifting and high-intensity training, Pilates helped to also calm her body and mind, while providing beneficial movement to alleviate tight muscles and various aches and pains.

She completed a Pilates mat certification in the UK with FitPro, where she taught for nearly 3 years. Jessica then moved to Chicago to teach Pilates for 2 years while also expanding her Pilates expertise on the Reformer and other apparatus.

Amy White

Amy completed her Pilates instructor training at Indy House of Pilates. The Pilates method has allowed her to reconnect with her physical, emotional and mental health while growing stronger with every session.This renewed love of fitness has improved Amy's posture, enhanced her self-awareness, and helped lower her stress levels.

Amy has found so much joy teaching others the movements of the Pilates method. In her classes, you will always find the lights a little dim and the energy positive. Amy is always looking for new ways to modify her classes, allowing it to be easier or more challenging, to help each client to achieve their fitness goals. Amy aspires to have everyone leave her classes a little stronger and much happier.

When Amy is not in the studio, you can find her nose buried in a good book and sipping a strong cup of coffee. But what she enjoys most, is her family.

Amy looks forward to seeing you in her next class!

Pilates Instructor

Kara Wagoner

When Kara found Indy House of Pilates, it was "love at first class." Pilates has helped her to achieve a long-time goal of building muscle and developing core strength without intense weightlifting. Kara was so inspired by the results she found from the Pilates method, that she wanted to share her passion with others. So, she completed the Pilates instructor training though Indy School of Pilates.

Kara's life had been filled with various athletics. From golf to volleyball, and basketball to Tae Kwon Do, there were very few sports Kara hasn't tried. However, she didn't truly develop a passion for exercise and had not integrated a regular weekly workout routine into her life. Thankfully, a friend invited Kara to a Zumba class, which also ignited her love of group exercise classes.

In her free time, Kara enjoys spending time with her husband, as well as reading and cuddling her dog.

Pilates Instructor

Samantha Polster

Throughout her youth and young adulthood, Samantha was a dedicated dancer. Later in life, she struggled to find an enjoyable exercise replacement. She decided to start taking classes at Indy House of Pilates, where she found what had been missing for several years.

Samantha's renewed love for exercise helped her to improve posture, relieve back pain, and reduce stress. She has especially enjoyed how the Pilates method has increased her physical strength and mind-body awareness.

Samantha decided to deepen her understanding and knowledge of the Pilates method and completed instructor training at Indy School of Pilates. She looks forward to sharing her love of Pilates with others so they can also develop a stronger body and mind.

Outside of the studio, Samantha works as a full-time optometrist with IU Health Physicians. She also enjoys traveling, taking her beagle for walks, and enjoying time with family and friends.

Pilates Instructor

Lynn Mathena

A fitness and wellness buff most of her adult life, Lynn has always made time in her life and budget for exercise and wellness. She understands that our bodies are amazing things and it’s never too early or too late to take care of them. She desires to work together to help you be the best you can be. Growing older is so much easier with your health and a strong body - and she believes strongly in the saying “A body in motion, stays in motion!”

A few years ago, Lynn changed careers to a seated job and found that her hips got tighter even though she was doing an intense 5 a.m. workout 4-5 times each week. The focus was on endurance and strength training and less on form and safety. A low back injury sidelined her for a few months. When she eased back into the workouts, it flared up again. She knew she needed to find a different way to safely exercise.

When Lynn found Indy House of Pilates, she realized that she had stumbled onto the perfect fit for her. She knew a little bit about Pilates as a core and all-over body workout. Strengthening your core has so many benefits at all stages of life. The attention to our individual body while encouraging safe movement really stood out to her. She enjoyed the variety of classes offered each week and the fun events. It is a great community.

Becoming an instructor was a huge step that would allow Lynn to develop a deeper understanding of the Pilates method. She always enjoyed helping others and doing exercise, so it seemed a perfect fit. Her goal is to encourage people of all ages to grow older with a strong core and improve their flexibility and ranges of motion.

Outside of the studio, Lynn enjoys meeting up with friends to share a meal or a drink, reading books, traveling, and going on new adventures. She also enjoys cooking, bourbon and camping with her guy. She has 3 daughters living in different parts of the country. She’s grateful that her Pilates practice is something she can take with her wherever she travels.

Pilates Instructor

Emily Richard

Emily has always loved finding ways to stay active. She regularly plays tennis, cycles, practices yoga, lifts weights, and attends group fitness classes. Pilates became a pivotal part of her wellness routine after acute hip pain kept her from participating in many of the things that she used to enjoy. She found that Pilates allowed her to maintain fitness, build muscle, and find relief from constant pain.

After developing a regular practice, Emily decided she wanted to take a deeper dive. While researching training programs, Emily read Rachel William's story of how Pilates allowed her to recover from back surgery. This profoundly resonated with Emily, so she decided to attend Pilates instructor training at Indy School of Pilates. She now has the privilege of helping others to learn about the method which allowed her to heal from chronic pain and to gain strength.

Outside of the studio, Emily can usually be found volunteering for Love of Labs, a local dog rescue group, or driving all over the city in search of the perfect brunch.

Frequently Asked Questions

Select a question below to find an answer

What results can I expect from Pilates?

Adding Pilates to your life will result in various physical changes, like increased flexibility and range of motion, increased core strength, decreased back pain and increased balance. In addition to the common physical changes Pilates practitioners experience, many report improved memory, increased mental clarity, decreased stress and increased overall self-awareness. Although these results do not happen overnight, most individuals will begin to feel changes within the first 10 sessions or less!

What should I wear to my class?

For Pilates, Fitness Barre and Yoga classes, we recommend well-fitting workout clothing and bare feet or grip socks. Don’t worry if you don’t have grip socks. We have some available for purchase at the studio!

For Zumba, TRX and Strong Nation classes, wear tennis shoes that lace up and are tied. We do not recommend slip-on shoes for these classes.

Why do I need to do 3 Introductory Private Pilates Sessions before joining Pilates equipment classes?

These introductory sessions are required prior to joining equipment classes for a several reasons. The most important reason is that we want you to have a safe, enjoyable and effective workout experience. During these 3 sessions, you will get more comfortable using the Pilates Equipment safely. You will also learn the foundational Pilates exercises, upon which the rest of our exercises are built!


I have never really exercised and have never taken a Yoga or Pilates class. Will I be able to keep up with others?

YES! We adapt every class to the particular group of participants in attendance. On occasion, we offer intermediate and advanced classes, which are marked accordingly on the scheduler.

Why aren't membership prices listed on the IHP website?

This is due to the variety of memberships we offer, and how we can also custom-tailor a membership to a client’s needs and preferences. If you would like to learn more about our memberships. then please click here to set up some time to meet with us so we can help answer your questions and design a custom membership just for you. She will be happy to discuss your personal needs to help you select the best package for you.

What are grip socks?

“Grip socks” are socks with small rubber grips on the bottom.. Think of hospital socks with way better colors and a much better fit! These type socks are great for yoga and Pilates to prevent sliding and to keep your feet warm during class where you would otherwise be barefoot.

What does it mean to be on the waitlist?

Being on the waitlist is like being on “standby”. When the available spots for a class are full, we open up a waitlist for others who may want to attend. If someone releases their spot in class, the next person on the waitlist will be assigned that spot in the class.
