I just had a personal visit with Chimêne and it was eye opening.  I didn't realize how much my neurological imbalances status post stroke went right down to my core.  Like a good physical therapist, she focuses on stability before mobility and therefore we are starting at the core and working our way out.  Thank you to the Pilates studio for providing this service of neurokinetic therapy to our community.  I hope to learn a lot more in my future visits.
