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.
Jennifer is a wonderful trainer. She's not at all intimidating but doesn't let you slack either. I have been working with her twice a week for nearly 6 months and I always look forward to our workouts. She incorporated TRX, HIIT, step, weights, body weight and pilates reformer into my training and I am loving the improvements in my strength and cardiovascular endurance. Our workouts have given me a positive attitude and keep me motivated to exercise outside of the studio as well.
My wife and I can't rave enough about Ellen! She is a fantastic pilates / yoga (and classical dance) instructor who has great knowledge and offers firm guidance perfectly balanced with warm and positively encouraging energy. As novices, we wanted to learn pilates to get back in shape and Ellen has been the perfect person to help us on our way to a healthier lifestyle. Do not hesitate and hire her now!
Gretchen is amazing!!! I was looking for someone with excellent skill who can really observe with great detail how I’m using my body. I had a disc injury and knew I needed to take recobery very seriously. I’m happy to say Gretchen saw me through this and really helped me tune in to the exercises to lengthen my spine and allow me to work in a way to prevent injury ftom coming up again. Gretchen is a dancer and body enthusiast. Being a dancer myself I highly respect her life experiences and body awaresness. Work with her! You will not regret it ;)
Amira, an amazing instructor, has worked with me for many years. I started Pilates with her at UCSF and then together with others, I followed her to another studio. In each session with her clear and focused guidance, the body gets stretched and balanced. I leave the workout session feeling great, that I’ve done something really good for myself. She’s awesome! -Katrina S
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.
Sarah was my pilates instructor for a few years in Switzerland. She paid very close attention to detail and body movement for the most beneficial workout! She kept my trainings fun and challenging whilst incorporating mat, reformer, ring, chair and Cadillac. She listened to my needs and gave professional advice. She is passionate about health, strong body/mind, which makes her a fantastic pilates teacher! Without a doubt, I would highly recommend Sarah!
Jordana was a fantastic trainer for me!! I wanted to get into better shape for my wedding and she helped setup a work out that was tailored specificly to my needs. We did a mixture of TRX, cardio & pilates. It was my first time ever doing TRX and I loved it! Jordana really listened to what I wanted to acheive and with her encouragement helped me get there.
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.
Kim is excellent, compassionate teacher who takes the time to really listen and see every one she works with. She is incredibly thoughtful in her instructions and brings inspiring energy and care to her practice. I highly recommend studying with Kim!
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
What a wonderful studio! Recently I spent 5 days in San Francisco and wanted to keep up with my weekly pilates classes so I scheduled two classes with Lena Koenig -- I had read her bio on line and expected my classes would be a bridge until I returned home to my regular instructor. Well, what a surprise --- Lena was more than sufficient! I learned several very important concepts within the first 15 minutes that had thus far eluded me and we ended up having two fun, challenging classes. Since I find myself in San Francisco twice a year I plan on attending classes with Lena again. A great find.
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.
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!
