I am so grateful that my dr. referred me to Katrina and the Pilates Studio.  I have had 2 back surgeries and Katrina has been amazing at helping me to work through some fear and apprehension to gain strength again. I totally respect her expertise as she works with so many of us who have our own story working on our individual programs.  I take her small group class and have met some great people who are part of the group as well!  I have also taken classes with Nate and Kathy - both super!  And Kay, another staff person, has been so supportive in understanding both the physical and emotional part of this recovery journey.  Everyone is behind you and I'm feeling stronger every day!   Thanks, Katrina (and all!)

I really didn't know what to expect when I met with Katrina last year for her to evaluate my legs and hips after both of my hips had been replaced two years ago. She knew exactly what exercises I  needed to rebuild my strength and balance. The pilate exercise equipment has given my back support so that I have been pain  free during all of the training. In the small group I attend, there is a mixture of  ages and abilities, and each of us works on our own set of exercises under Katrina's direction. She couldn't be kinder. Even though there are pilates studies closer to me in Westfield, it is worth it to drive to Hadley for the excellent training I experience there.

Marilyn- that is so great to hear that you've been pain free.  Katrina has certainly invested herself in her training and continuing ed but she has a natural talent to asses the body and use movement to help her clients.  We love having you and seeing your progress.  Keep up all the good work!

The Pilates Studio ROCKS! The instructors are incredibly knowledgeable and very warm and encouraging; we have been working with Holly on flexibility, strength building, and balance--she is wonderful! The time we spend at Pilates is something we look forward to every week!

Thanks Ellen! I personally never get to see you because our schedules don't line up but I know what great progress you guys have made.  Plus it's always a joy to talk on the phone with you!! Keep at it. -Laurie

Of the many benefits to being a regular at The Pilates Studio, the most surprising is that after a couple of years, my spine unfurled to the point that my height now measures an inch taller in my fifties! Polestar Pilates is the best method I have found for getting rid of aches and pains and feeling strong and balanced. All of the instructors here are very gifted and helpful.

The Pilates Studio comment

Thanks Holly! That is pretty awesome that you are getting taller.  We do hear that a lot - especially from the women who keep at their Pilates practice into their 50s and 60s.  Keep at it and we'll have to order an extra long reformer! :) -Laurie

After 20 years of yoga I decided I needed core strengthening. I was apprehensive because childhood onset scoliosis caused me to be overly protective of my upper body.  And then I heard about Katrina.  She has made such a difference in my life.  The extent of her knowledge and teaching skill is incredibly impressive.  Katrina, Laurie and every one on the staff have created such a wonderful, welcoming atmosphere at the studio.  I’ve been going there over three years now, private classes, then small groups and now that I know my exercises I’m doing independent sessions.  I absolutely love the Pilates Studio!

The Pilates Studio comment

Sheilah! You are such a strong woman.  You do things in your session that I've never seen other people do.  I absolutely love when I come in in the morning and see you on the schedule.  
Keep up all the hard work- you're doing awesome.  -Laurie

I'd give 6 stars if I could.  I've worked with Jenny, Kathy, and Suzanne to rehabilitate after a painful back injury.  I couldn't do conventional mat exercises, so they developed a personalized set of exercises I could do on the reformers.  Within a month, the pain had largely disappeared.  Pilates helped me heal and gain strength; now I'm working on flexibility.  I've continued because The Pilates Studio staff is so knowledgeable, professional, and supportive.

The Pilates Studio comment

Thanks for the review Melba! Witnessing a client's pain decreasing (and disappearing!) is the best part...until we start seeing them getting stronger and than THAT becomes the best part! :) Keep at it, you're doing awesome.  -Laurie

I'll never forget when you first called us - so frustrated and in so much pain.  You have come such a long way! It's such a joy to see you in Small Group Sessions now (not needing Privates!).  Keep up all the good work.   -LJ

I have been taking reformer (small group) with a number of wonderful instructors for a number of years. I started with Katrina and Jenny, and now work mainly with Suzanne. I love the fact that there’s nothing routine about what we do during these sessions. The exercises are tailored to your particular issues, and if you suddenly injure yourself while gardening, or playing a sport or instrument, you are given new exercises on the spot that target the problem and help you heal. It is like doing physical therapy and resistance training rolled into one. Actually, I much prefer going to the Pilates Studio than to a regular PT, because instructors at the studio know me well and can gage what I can already do, and what needs improvement. The other very important aspect is the easy-going, friendly, and supportive atmosphere : instructors are highly trained and very professional, but they have a real rapport with clients. People don’t go to the studio to show off. They go there to learn how to overcome physical limitations, seek release from pain, feel stronger and more energetic, regardless of age and ability. In the bargain, we often share stories, jokes, get a good laugh (mainly about ourselves).  What’s not to love about this studio?
DR, Northampton.

I cannot say enough in how impressed I am with the Pilates studio and its instructors. I ;have been going to classes with Katrina and feel they have truly helped my back pain. Most importantly they have taught me proper breathing techniques and made me aware of how important balance and core strength are. The groups are very friendly and the advice from the instructors most helpful. Marilyn L.

The Pilates Studio comment

Thank you Marilyn! You are such an awesome client.  It's been such a joy to watch how strong and independent  (in your Pilates!)  you've become.   Keep up all the good work! -LJ

I mostly attend the Mat classes and each class is different. Not only because there is around half a dozen instructor who teach Pilates on mat on a regular basis, but even the same teacher will regularly mix it up a little; hand weights, fitness balls, the Oov (I hope I'm spelling the name of that thing right, ;-), resistance bands, small squishy balls, the "magic circle"  etc.  Not a one class is the same, which I love! And every single of their teachers are not only certified in Pilates and very knowledgeable in anatomy & general fitness, they're also friendly and funny.  I never had a bad class at this Pilates studio in my 8+ years of patronizing it, and I always feel batter afterwards!

Thanks for the kind words Peter! And yes, it is Oov! Good job.  :)

I’ve been coming to the Pilates Studio for over two years.  Suzanne has been my one-on-one instructor; I’ve been to Kay’s reformer class and participated in group classes with Katrina.  All have been extraordinarily beneficial.  I recently had knee replacement surgery and because of my work there, both prior to and after the surgery, my recovery time was less than expected and my ability to re-enter my life was aided by Pilates.  I am unable to truly express my gratitude, especially to Suzanne, for her expertise, good humor and commitment to her craft.  The Pilates Studio is the BEST.  Ann H.

The Pilates Studio comment

Ann you have been so consistent and worked so hard.  You are rocking that new knee.  Keep up all the good work.  -Laurie
