Talking about Pilates.

“it feels so good to elongate the muscles, so that when I walk out of (Pilates) class, I feel like I’m an inch taller.”

– Donna Richardson, Today fitness expert

“Although it took Pilates 70 years to catch on, it’s now on a roll that will be hard to stop.”
– The Today Show

“It’s marvelous. I have seen people go from a wheelchair to standing and walking and dancing again.”
– Romana Kryzanowska, Pilates instructor

“What Pilates does is strengthen and elongate.
The exercises make practitioners feel better, stronger, more in control, and less prone to injury.”


“The hottest alternative fitness subcult is Pilates. This strength-and-flexibility method focuses on “core” muscles and proper body alignment with an emphasis on stretching that will make you stronger, as well as more relaxed.”

“If you want a dancers body, this is the way to go, because it lengthens and strengthens muscles rather than building bulk.”
-USA Today

-Woman’s World

Muscles that are strong, long and lissome.”
