What Our Clients Are Saying

My back is much better. My posture is better. My form is better.  I feel like I’m learning real classical Pilates. Take one class and you will understand why Pilates is the most wonderful gift you can give yourself.  

Lori Berstein

I have had incredible results from my three times a week classes with Molly and Hector. The weight I had gained by being at home is now gone. My strength has returned as has my flexibility. At my age, 82, it is critical to work on my total body health which Pilates takes care of beautifully. I thank you for offering this amazing program.

Judy Rothman

Whether you are experienced at Pilates or brand new to it, do give Molly’s class a try.  You will immediately feel welcome and challenged, no matter your experience level.  You’ll be in very good hands! I wanted to find a new ‘Pilates home’ and I have been so happy there and felt comfortable from day one. 

Sandy Underwood

As a man in my late 60’s, I’ve found that Phoenix Classical Pilates classes have been a great way to stay in shape.  The class time flies by as Molly keeps it moving fast and fun.
