"Studying Pilates at Mindful Body Pilates & Yoga has been incredibly beneficial to my posture, alignment, and body awareness over the past two months. As a full-time piano doctoral student at Eastman, I'm also finding a direct correlation between mindfulness, alignment, posture, and technique while playing. I've also enjoyed the time devoted each week to balance and wellness. It's important for musicians to remember to take care of themselves." ~ Kristin
"I had put on extra weight over the last 8 years and was experiencing great pain in getting up and down from a chair. Then my doctor told me I had high cholesterol. So, I decided it was time to invest in myself again. I use to go to a chiropractor at least 1 time a week, but after a few weeks of Pilates I noticed my body was getting stronger and I was not in so much pain. I soon stopped going to the chiropractor entirely! I have enjoyed an increase in my endurance, strength and balance and I am feeling much better thanks to the Mindful Body Pilates & Yoga studio." ~ Becky
"I have been a type 1 diabetic for 46 years. The long term effects from the disease and aging were beginning to impact my daily functioning. I had observed extreme decreases in my physical strength & balance. I was beginning to experience pain all over. My stress level was getting beyond acceptable limits. I was a mess!
As I was beginning to panic, Mindful Body Pilates & Yoga opened its doors. Melodie & Rhonda offer the perfect combination of knowledge, skill, enthusiasm & encouragement that keeps everyone working toward their optimum level of fitness. In addition, they adapt classes to the skill levels and individual needs of it's participants.
I try to attend at least one class daily, alternating between yoga and Pilates. I have found this to be a perfect workout! Every week I 've stretched and strengthened every major muscle group from head to toe. Balance skills have improved. I have never found a routine that is so productive and thorough.
I find that the classes have led to a new found sense of well being. My physical health and entire outlook on life have been turned around by this excellent studio and it's top rate instructors." ~ Debi
