What clients are saying...
Cathy: Thanks for a great bone density class. You are a wonderful teacher.
have been going to The Pilates Senter for a VERY long time, close to 12 years (before Laurie and Katrina took over and really made the studio the fabulous place it is today). When I was 50 I looked at other people I knew who were older than I , and asked how they kept so strong and fit and they said "Pilates". I had severe sciatica at the time and both a life and career that kept me
on my feet pretty much 12 hours a day. It was clear Pilates was the way I needed to go! From those first days working with Laurie, and then Katrina -and fast forwarding through lots of life and body changes which included a near fatal car accident 2 years ago at the age of 60, I have never been more grateful than I am today for the expertise and genuine care taken by all the practitioners at the Pilates Studio and most especially Katrina. Yes, it is very expensive! But having a body that can continue to work, and continue to gain strength, despite injury and illness is worth more than most things that one has to spend money on. I have modified what classes I take and how often I can take them over the years, to work around the ever changing finances. But I also respect so much Laurie and Katrina's continued commitment to grow (both through education workshops, classes for teachers and clients, improving and upgrading equipment regularly and attention to community outreach and resourcing ) that I know the money I spend is going to the right places. Thankyou, you know how much I value you all. Lauren
When the Sunday Mat class was canceled, I saw on a the schedule a morning reformer class. I never took a reformer class before. For the several years I have been coming to the Pilates Studio, I only focused on mat classes(really never going upstairs- just to the basement for mat classes). The reformer classes were more expensive and looking back maybe I was a bit intimidated. Well, since taking my first reformer class around the start of this year, I can say- the $ is worth it. I take reformer classes regularly with Ruth and Tristan and they are both great instructors. I am still amazed with how versatile the reformer is- how many leg, arm, back, core, combination exercises you can do. I feel great after each class, challenged and satisfied. Thank you.
