Pilates Bodies’ Duo Session Testimonial – Meet Charlene & Libby! Click here!

Meet Charlene Morrison:

“I’ve been taking mat Pilates classes with Liesl and duo private Pilates sessions with Julia since the studio opened, thanks to a friend trying to get me to be more active.  I’ve been very surprised by the impact Pilates has had on my daily life.  My posture is better, my core is stronger, and I don’t get sore like I used to doing strenuous things on weekends.  My husband and I put in a large flower garden a few years back and we worked 8-10 hours each weekend day.  I was hauling heavy rocks and shoveling soil and, to my surprise, did not get sore.  My legs and arms felt heavy, but I was able to perform day in and day out on this project pain-free.  That impact alone has made me a Pilates participant for life.  The sessions are always fun and as challenging as I want to make them.  I’d recommend anyone interested in avoiding days where you are too sore for comfort to take regular Pilates sessions.”

Meet Libby McDonough:

“I am just starting my fourth year of being one of the “bodies” at Pilates Bodies – WOW!  Being a regular has provided me with a stronger core, a greater awareness of my posture and imbalances (allowing me to self-correct and move with better functionality) and a certain sense of grounding.  The improvements gained with practicing Pilates can seem a little subtle, but then they will sneak up on you with random “aha” moments!  Sometimes, however, the effects are most noticeable when you take a break and start to feel cattywampus, and that is what keeps me coming back for more.

Pilates Bodies has a variety of offerings with instructors that are welcoming, encouraging, and effective.  My friend and I take semi-private Pilates sessions with Julia.  Although we perform the exercises simultaneously, Julia is adept at adjusting them and us to fit our individual needs.  Between the three of us, we make it fun and just as challenging as it needs to be for any given day.  I have also taken some great mat Pilates classes – thanks, Liesl – and look forward to participating in the next Cyclelates series (cycling and Pilates).  How can you top that?”
