5 Stars for Cathy!! My daughter and I did introductory semi-private lessons with Cathy. We both have different issues and she has been very attentive and helpful to us both. After the Christmas holidays are over, we will discuss where to go next-continue with semi-private lessons or enroll in some classes.Cathy is knowledgeable, skillful, patient, and personable. I'm hoping to continue with her!

The Pilates Studio has been a crucial part of my recovery from chronic back issues. Having had two surgeries in the past, I was bound and determined to never have another. The Pilates Studio has helped me meet that goal with safe and effective exercises that gave my back the stability that had been missing for so long. Highly recommended!

I just started a Pilates Challenge #2! I did it and finished it, in the summer but wasn't able to take advantage of the deep discount you can get if you finish all 3 and then just keep going. This time I plan not only keep on doing Pilates but also to mix it with the Apparatus classes, which are still kinda new to me but I love the fact that I can take 2 classes in the same day and they both gonna be totally different. It's also a great way to meet all the instructors working at the Hadley Pilates studio, they are all great & knowledgeable. Well, join me if you also love Pilates and challenges 🙂 I highly recommend it..

Someone just asked me "what keeps you coming to Pilates?" Honestly? RESULTS! No matter what kind of week I've had or how bad my body feels before I come to Pilates, I leave feeling stronger, pain-free and balanced. As I walk out, I literally feel GREAT and believe me, that causes a ripple effect in the Universe 🙂 Just ask my coworkers or the guys at Dunkin' Donuts that hand me my iced coffee through the drive thru and say: "Pilates this morning?" What I have found helpful to motivate me to come back is to book my classes through the phone app one week in advance. If you struggle with self-care guilt, as I sometimes do, just enter it into your calendar as "Meeting with Laurie" or "Weekly meeting with Kay." Only you will know but the Universe will thank you.

I know Pilates can be a bit pricey but the monetary investment is well worth it. As a 72 year old, I experience osteoarthritis in my knees; sciatica, stenosis and other “getting older” issues. As a result of Pilates I’ve been able to avoid some surgeries, and my quality of life has definitely improved. I would rather spend money investing in my health and my ability to move around than on doctors and drugs. What good is having a bit more money if you are unable to move around to enjoy! PLUS, the instructors are some of the best I’ve ever worked with. I am truly grateful.

started Pilates last year in recovery from a herniated disc and sciatica, upon recommendation from a number of people including my sports medicine doc. Wow, what a life changing event--and I don't mean the back injury. I've had low-grade back pain for ~30 years since starting martial arts practice in my 20's, and my back is now better than it's been since before then! Katrina has helped me really understand how my body works and moves, and I quickly got back to my routines in dance, rock climbing, splitting wood, etc.--and general embracing of my physical life--even better than in the past. My regular workouts on the Pilates apparatus at the Hadley studio are a fixture in my life, and occasional series of independent sessions with Katrina help me on my path toward continued improvement in feeling good and moving strong and free.

And one more thing: the studio is so wonderfully laid out and managed, with such attention to detail, that it's a pleasure just be there. I feel very taken care of!

I really didn't know what to expect when I met with Katrina last year for her to evaluate my legs and hips after both of my hips had been replaced two years ago. She knew exactly what exercises I needed to rebuild my strength and balance. The pilate exercise equipment has given my back support so that I have been pain free during all of the training. In the small group I attend, there is a mixture of ages and abilities, and each of us works on our own set of exercises under Katrina's direction. She couldn't be kinder. Even though there are pilates studies closer to me in Westfield, it is worth it to drive to Hadley for the excellent training I experience there.

I have been coming to the Pilates Studio for over 5 years, when my son started working with Katrina at the age of 8. He had a congenital spinal defect that was being treated by Shriner’s Hospital with a brace, which he could not tolerate. Katrina worked with him to strengthen his core, and now he is an athletic 14 y.o. who uses his Pilates sessions to condition his body in service of his dream to become a professional soccer goalkeeper.
In the meantime, I attended Pilates with him, strenthening my core to allow me to keep my back in good condition for my career as a dentist, which is notoriously hard on the back and neck.
Recently, we have had the pleasure to also work with Nate, who has worked with me to condition me for my new sport of rowing with the Northampton Community Rowing Center. I had a lot of trouble bending down enough to lower myself into the boat, but through carefully chosen exercises, and supervision of good form, I am now able to lower myself into the boat with control
and ease, and enjoying injury-free rowing.
Thanks to Katrina, and Nate, and the Pilates studio, my son and I are both reaching our goals for fitness and having fun!

I tried the Pilates Studio as an experiment, I’m sticking around because of the good vibes. The instructors are all very knowledgeable, as well as being cheerful, positive, encouraging and nurturing in their roles. If you have pain issues, asymmetries, and other bodily weirdness, they’re all great at accommodating your limitations and helping you find movements you can do instead of forcing yourself into poses that hurt. The cost is higher than a standard gym membership, but I’m getting such good instruction and encouragement that it’s worth it.

Katrina, Laurie and every one on the staff have created such a wonderful, welcoming atmosphere at the studio.

I started doing Pilates at the beginning of my 2nd Trimester. Friends told me how much Pilates helped them so even though I was exhausted I wanted to give it a try. I loved it from day 1! It was the perfect way to exercise given how low my energy was. Kristy developed a great program for me. I've always struggled with what I call a "sway back" and I was worried about my belly getting bigger and putting a lot of strain in my low back. The Pilates exercises transformed the way I stand! A surprise benefit was that Kristy was able to help me with chronic knee pain I've had since spraining my ankle many years ago. I feel more balanced and comfortable walking and standing for long periods of time! I can't wait continue working with Kristy after the baby is born.

I am fairly certain that Pilates has saved my life. One day, while working in the 2nd story loft of my barn, I was standing at the edge holding open the large side door where we would drop hay. A strong wind swung the door open, and because I was hanging on to the door, I started to fall out. As my life flashed before my eyes, I quickly let go of the door, but I was already falling out of the loft. I tightened every muscle in my core, back, and legs to pull myself back from over the edge and securely back on to the loft floor. It was terrifying, and I know Pilates made all the difference that day.

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

Hello Pilates Studio, Pilates has improved my balance tremendously. My increased ankle strength keeps me from twisting and falling (which I tend to do). It also impacts my flexibility in the garden - stretching, leaning, stooping, crouching and lifting. That carries over to every day movement in and around my house - cleaning, vacuuming, stair climbing and descending. Better balance prepares me to encounter the physical demands of every day living.

If you think Pilates is just about abs, you are missing out on so much. The Pilates experience I've had at the Pilates Studio in Hadley is more like whole body wellness and like a form of physical therapy for any age. It's safer than yoga for the body and is making my body stronger and safer in all the activities of life. I kept getting injured with yoga even though I like it. Pilates has been a big help for me - with strength, balance, healing. It has magically helped me improve with dancing and coordination. The teachers at the studio are top-notch. Wow.

The instructors at The Pilates Studio adapted and challenged me appropriatly has my belly grew and body changed. I was doing session up until 3 days before I went into labor! My OBGYN even allowed me to return to Pilates before 6weeks postpartum because she knows and trusts these instructors. I safely got working on strengthening my pelvic floor. More than anything- Pilates postnatal is helping with my upper back which is so sore from breast feeding.

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.

I can attend 3 classes in a 24 hour period and each one will be different and great! Say, Monday evening with Tristan who has a background in yoga, Tuesday noon with Kristy and her Classical Pilates, and then end it with Katrina (one of the co-owners) who has a wide knowledge of the apparatus Pilates and regularly teaches series for beginners, among other things. And then I can still go for the 5 pm class with Nancy where one never knows what's gonna happen - she likes to take out the Oov, for instance!! OK, so that's actually 4 different Pilates classes in 24 hours in one studio...well I'm sure you get my point; 5 stars, the best.

My balance improved dramatically

by taking classes and working

individually with instructors at

Pilates Studio. My ankles, in

particular are stronger and with

small, simple movements, Katrina

taught me to bend my ankles

without straining them. After several

bad sprains and always feeling

vulnerable to another, me and

my ankles have forgotten that

feeling and move without worry.

Early on, I was surprised to realize

how difficult it was for me to do simple

balance exercises like standing on

one foot and closing my eyes.

Pilates made me stronger by showing

me my physical weaknesses in

a way that did not stress me out and,

to the contrary, gave me the strength

I needed to keep working and gain

bodily confidence.

Thank you so much!!

First - my body: after every session I feel more connected to my body, more control over my muscles, and overall just better. Second - the company: all of the teachers are fantastic. Not only are they super knowledgeable and dedicated to helping each individual, but they are fun to be around. I look forward to every session! Third - the people: I didn't come here to make friends, but I have found connection with several individuals that attend the classes with me, and that helps me stay motivated and gives me even more reason to look forward to coming.

Since I started my Pilates practice three years ago, I have improved posture, strengthened my spine and have developed balance and overall strength.

I now have a greater sense of overall stability and can perform activities that require a lot more balance and coordination than I used to. I used to wobble all over the place and now I am steady and strong. I can walk around more confidently and feel like all four corners of my feet are securely planted on the ground. I know that my strong core will provide me with the strength and stability to remain balanced as I grow older.

A super neat thing about these series is that if you miss a class then there is make up/bonus class, which, if you signed up for the series you can also purchase as a bonus for a discount. That came handy to me given that I could not attend one Tuesday - but I loved this series so much that I would buy the 7nd class anyway 🙂 Katrina is very knowledgeable and experienced in all things Pilates, and I'll definitely try to take another series at this Studio - and they usually fill up fast so if you are thinking about some of the series then don't overthink it, they're a great idea and you will love it!

I mostly attend the Mat classes and each class is different. Not only because there is around half a dozen instructor who teach Pilates on mat on a regular basis, but even the same teacher will regularly mix it up a little; hand weights, fitness balls, the Oov (I hope I'm spelling the name of that thing right, ;-), resistance bands, small squishy balls, the "magic circle" etc. Not a one class is the same, which I love! And every single of their teachers are not only certified in Pilates and very knowledgeable in anatomy & general fitness, they're also friendly and funny. I never had a bad class at this Pilates studio in my 8+ years of patronizing it, and I always feel batter afterwards!

Evening reformer classes with Tristan are a must! Jump class on Monday nights and reformer class on Tuesday nights. She is an amazing instructor. She always comes prepared with new exercises to try. A full body work out. I always feel challenged and extremely satisfied with what I have accomplished. Thank you Tristan!

Because I've been doing Pilates I'm now able to work in the ICU without tripping over tubes! My patients are safer because my balance is better.

All of them are in my box of chocolates! Each person gives their all at every session and encounter, from a warm welcome, to cheering us on, modifying exercises while still empowering, and a hearty goodbye! They all hold a special place in my heart.

Ruth is one of the wonderful instructors at The Pilates Studio in Hadley. I had taken mat classes for more than a year when I decided to try an apparatus class. Ruth was the instructor who welcomed me into her class and paid special attention to me, making sure that I was performing the exercises correctly. She has a very gentle, kind personality and I miss taking her mat classes!

Since doing Pilates I've definitely noticed that in the winter, when there's ice, or anytime that I am walking down a dewy-wet grassy hill (can you tell that I own dogs?) I've been much more secure. I can slip slightly and then more or less immediately regain my balance and stay upright.

Holly rocks! She is incredibly knowledgeable and designs excellent workouts that are creative and that provide exercises you can work on outside of the studio. She is patient, thoughtful, and funny and has made a significant and continuing impact on our overall wellness!

My weekly Reformer class work has inspired me to devote an hour daily to core and balance exercises. The results are obvious!

It's amazing how different the Pilates method is from straight plane strengthening. You get strengthening and lengthening of muscles in ways that translate more completely to real world motions. That's the science. The art of Pilates at The Pilates Studio comes from the skilled, curious, fun teachers who help and guide you every step of the way whether you're taking group classes or doing private work. Worth the time and money? Absolutely! It IS life changing.

The Pilates Studio is fabulous! All of the staff are highly knowledgeable and supportive in achieving fitness goals. I have come so far the past two years that I have been working out here!
Having arthritis can be a challenge but there is always a modification available. Exercises I couldn’t do, I can now! My pain is much reduced, bone density has improved as well as my strength and confidence!

This is a truly special studio. The instructors are knowledgeable, kind and funny. The other people in the classes are friendly and welcoming, and the workouts are effective and joyous. (There’s nothing like laughing through a workout so that you feel good in body and mind afterwards!) My only complaint is that I can only get there when I travel for work - and that’s not nearly often enough. Can’t thank the lovely folks at The Pilates Studio enough for persistently positive experiences.

I have been doing Pilates regularly, on a weekly basis, for about 12 years, and I found it very helpful with a pain management. It's not only cheaper than co-pay at physical therapy, it is more fun and social. For my physical issues, it definitely works better than yoga did, I like the focus on mobility and toning and general tips for daily functioning. So yes, that's why I usually go for 2x a week at the Hadley Pilates Studio. The knowledgeable & friendly staff helps, too!
