I engaged Jackie's services for a home Pilates instructor for my boss who is a highly trained athlete and who is very particular around instructors. Jackie sent one of her two instructors located here in the Bay Area. He is incredibly pleased with the level of instruction, the quality of the training, and in Jackie's overall service, i.e., website, communication, and online payment feature. Highly recommend.
Gretchen is an amazing, talented, Pilates instructor and coach! She has innate ability to recognize how and where to focus for the most beneficial result. Beautifully trained in Fletcher Pilates, she radiates good energy and a positive approach at each session. I feel taller, more flexible, and stronger with every appointment. With every session there is a new take-away and fresh awareness of mind-body connection. I often rearrange my personal schedule to work with Gretchen because she is worth every minute of my time with her.
I started working with Parand two years ago after an episode of low back pain.She was very experienced and knew exactly what type of exercise program to create to strengthen my back and stomach muscles and stabilize my core muscles. In the beginning, my class was mostly Pilates, now it involves aerobics and weights as well. I exercise twice a week. She really accommodates my schedule-as a busy professional with a young child her flexibility has been key in allowing me to continue exercising. I feel great and I think I also look better in my Jeans which is a huge plus.
I’ve been training with Ravi Machado now for about 1 year, and I look forward to our sessions every few weeks. My initial goals in wanting to hire Ravi as a trainer were to gain strength and improve posture. I already had a good foundation of how to lift weights but with some recent neck and lower back pain I wanted more guidance on lifting with correct technique as to not cause more pain. Ravi not only has been helpful in those regards, but has taught me a lot more. Sometimes we work out with body weight, or with a combo of weights, and kettlebells. And other times we’ll just focus on Pilates (as he’s a certified instructor), and some sessions we’ll do a combo approach of weights, HIIT training, and Pilates — which is nice and keeps me on my toes not knowing what I’ll expect. What I’ve learned in my time working with Ravi. I need to stretch more (I have tight hip flexors and hamstrings). The Pilates machines are perfect for doing just this, and even though I dread stretching at times, it’s so necessary to prevent further injuries. I sit and drive a lot for work, and though I’m an active person and fit, he helps me identify those trouble areas of my body that I need to prioritize with stretching (and strengthening) — and we all have them. And not to mention that Pilates is a killer workout! I’ve learned to focus on my back and strengthen my shoulder/back stabilizers to help combat neck pain which has definitely lessened as a result of working together. I also now know how to properly swing a kettlebell and give myself an awesome leg workout in a short period of time. If you’re looking to add variety to your workouts, get stronger, become more flexible, improve posture, and become more aware of how your body and muscles behave and hold onto tension, definitely work with Ravi! I promise you you won’t be bored and his down to earth personality and expert knowledge regarding personal training and Pilates will keep you coming back for more workouts. - Mike N, San Francisco - 5/31/18
I have been one of Sarah's students for three years. Among several Pilates instructors whom I have observed, she stands out as truly exceptional. She is a keen observer of the exercises that her students perform, correcting errors gently in a respectful manner. Sarah has spotted weaknesses in my body and proceeded to introduce special exercises to strengthen those weaknesses. Both my wife and daughter have counted on improvements in my posture and body tone during the time that she has worked with me. She has a huge repertoire of Pilates exercises. Even after three years, she continues to introduce new exercises! I wish that I might have encountered her many years earlier. Sarah is a gifted teacher.
I snapped my tibia and fibula in January of this year that required surgery, hardware, extensive recovery and PT. I started working with Jordana twice a week because I was still really unbalanced and physically afraid of doing much beyond walking. She was such a gift at that time to me and I cannot really express all the positives about my experience with her. She helped me get my muscles back in alignment after the nasty atrophy that occurred, she did it with humor and physical awareness and kept me on task with kindness and constantly pushed me to do better and reminded me of how far I'd come. As a trainer and person I can't recommend her highly enough; Jordana is motivated, professional, kind and highly knowledgeable about building the skills for physical recovery.
Ashley is an incredible pilates instructor! She is very professional and such a joy to work with. I have back and shoulder issues, and she is so knowledgeable about the kinds of movements that are beneficial for me. She is extremely helpful and I would absolutely recommend her for anyone!
Blair is a gifted Pilates instructor. She knows just when/how to challenge me and do so in a wonderful way that encourages me to work harder. The end result? I look and feel good! Yay! I've long suffered from back pain (scoliosis) and I've never felt better! I've been seeing her 2-3X per week for the last two years (combination of mat and equipment class + duets and privates). The comments from friends and family who haven't seen me in a while are awesome.
Professional, on time and provides excellent instruction!
I was so excited to start Pilates again..I did my research and a friend of mine highly recommended Cheryl. She is awesome and helped me so much. She is a true 'professional ' and I just love her! Thank you Cheryl for you passion and devotion ??BTW I look and feel fabulous
In working with Lani for one and a half years now, the results are truly amazing. I have developed deep core strength, flexibility, relief from back pain and my scoliosis has become much less prominent. All of my goals have been met, and she continues to take them to new and higher levels surpassing my expectations. Lani is extremely knowledgeable in how our bodies move, she never rushes through a session and is a stickler for doing each movement correctly with precision. Her private and semi-private session are equally terrific and very enjoyable. She has shown me the safe and correct way to do the movements, so I can do them independently between sessions. A gem of an instructor!
Jayne is a marvelous instructor. I've worked with her for several years and have learned more about how my muscles work than with all the other martial arts, dance, yoga and fitness instructors I've studied with in the past 60 years. She really understands bodies and alignment.
As my Life Coach Sarah guided me toward clarity regarding the biggest question of my life what is my true purpose here? Sarah Reed is an elegant, whip-smart, laser-focused and intuitive belief-change miracle worker. She has helped me shift from habitual ways of thinking and believing that were not serving me, to new ways of being that reflect my higher self and purpose. Sarah gently fed my soul with insight into my beliefs and values, my capabilities, my identity and my true mission on this planet. I am forever grateful to Sarah for sharing HER true purpose and power to guide me toward mine.
Olivia gave me the best introduction to Pilates ever! Having never tried it before, I was very nervous about taking a group class so when I saw a decently priced opportunity for an individual or duet class, I decided to try it out. Olivia was fantastic. She explained thoroughly what we were doing and why. I'm the type of person who prefers to know why. And I'm really glad she took the time to speak with me. Olivia geared our lessons to focus on what each I needed and wanted from this experience. She was constantly showing me what I was doing right or wrong and explaining why it should be done a certain way. One of the main reasons I wanted private lessons and not a class was because I was afraid of hurting myself by doing things incorrectly. I've been known to jump into things before without thinking them through. It has been amazing to have someone who takes the time to make sure you are exercising correctly and taking care of your body. I'm incredibly grateful to have taken classes with Olivia. I pay attention to little details on my body that I never noticed before, and I can see a difference in the way I carry myself and in how my body feels. I highly recommend working with Olivia if you have the opportunity. Thank you, Olivia!

I am great at seeing movement pattern that is crucial to figure out what need to be done for uniform development of person which is goal of the classical Pilates.
After many years of being a student of yoga practicing different styles I decided that I wanted to pursue teaching others what yoga is all about. Breathwork, Mindfulness, Alignment, and Awareness are the main keys to advancing into poses. I can teach most styles of yoga as well as incorporate a fusion of Pilates, even a Barre format that will burn fat and tone muscle can be offered to complement the yoga practice. Strength & Stretch are Equally Important. I'm a Level 2 Reiki Healer and will offer massage in Savasana. My experience has been diverse, from working with older women who need to alleviate stress as well as yogis who are practicing handstands, backbends, arm balances, etc. My personalized service will cater to where you are in your practice and I love to give homework!
