My story…About 9 years ago I was hit with an autoimmune disease.  The flare-up was pretty bad and it was difficult to move around – lots of stiffness and pain. As a result, I lost a lot of muscle mass and strength.  I had already been a student of Barb’s for a few years.  And as I recovered, she tailored my workouts to bring back my strength body part by body part.  Her skill and care played on intergral part in my recovery.

 

I am also a scuba diver and Pilates has also helped with the physical skills needed – core strength (always important) and breath control.

I began practicing Pilates with Barb many years ago - both in Mat classes and private reformer sessions.  I appreciate her extensive knowledge about the body and her ability to tailor a workout to support the client's needs.  Barb is compassionate, is an excellent listener and is gifted as an instructor.  Many times I'd go in for a session with tightness and pain in my body and I left feeling like a whole new person!  It's very clear to me she stays current on continuing education as she incorporates what's new in the Pilates field.

Barb is a fantastic Pilates instructor.  I started seeing her 2 years after the birth of my second child. I was a competitive runner during high school, college and after.  At age 33, after an ankle injury and two pregnancies, running became painful.  I began experiencing daily back spasms during work and pain prevented me from sleeping well at night. After trying physical therapy with little improvement, I started looking for a Pilates instructor with a rehab background. Barb has an understanding of the biomechanics of the body and how injury disrupts other joints nearby. After a few months of training with Barb, I was no longer in pain. I improved my flexibility and core strength as well as unlearned things in my posture that were contributing to my pain during the day.

As a physician myself, I rarely encounter a physical therapist or physician who has an understanding of postural or muscle imbalances as well as Barb. She creates a program that is specific to her client. Not a one size fits all approach. She looks at the client’s imbalances and determines if they need be more flexible, more mobile or stronger and tailors the exercises to accomplish these goals. I have sent her my own patients who have experienced benefit and avoided surgery.  The results of Pilates have allowed me to get back to working out 5 days per week.

I generally do not provide testimonials, but this one was easy. Barb is amazing to work with because she understands that every individual has unique physical challenges and goals. She works with you to help you be the best you can be… and there are no cookie cutter sessions. She is always learning and researching so you get the very best- the best equipment and the ideal program to get you moving and keep you moving.

I wanted to take a minute to tell you that I'm so happy to be back with you training. In my time away I realized that pilates truly is the way to keep yourself flexible and in shape better than any thing I've ever tried. I love your new studio and really missed your training style. After only three sessions I can tell that I'm back on the path to felling healthy and strong again. Your enthusiasm is contagious.
