    I've never worked with a more intuitive trainer. Recently, I became reacquainted with my abs. Hello!

    -Rebecca B.

    Such a great workout, but no soreness! Just what my body needs. Me time and results. Just fabulous.

    -Linda A.

    Ellen is a phenomenal teacher and person. She is a dynamo. I look forward to every class. I leave feeling energized and happy. Try it; you too will learn to DEFY GRAVITY!

    -Tricia S.

    I have been doing Pilates for over 16 years and I have had many great instructors. But none really compares to Ellen. She knows exactly what it takes for each of us to get the most out our workout both individually and as a group. I always leave Ellen’s studio feeling tired and elated at the same time.

    -Lynn H.

    I know how to autopilot through a class. But with Ellen’s, that’s not possible. There are way too many new moves every, single, time! And most of these moves are ones I never thought I could do. But somehow, when Ellen is there, I just do. I often have to look at the mirror just to believe it.

    -Jane P.

    What a fantastic experience working out with Ellen. I have taken classes of all genres and I have never felt better with not too many aches afterwards. Thank you so much for being on Zoom.

    -Maxine C.

    I just want to let you know how much I enjoyed your Pilates class. But more importantly was having you as the instructor. You were professional, patient and kind. It’s been pleasure knowing you and look forward to seeing you, next fall.
