I had never tried pilates before, so was a bit nervous about going to this class. I signed up for the Intro Special Single Reformer Class with goal of strengthening my back muscles and stretching my hips. I also have been going to a chiropractor for some joint issues, so thought the pilates class could help me to be stronger and have less pain. Tannis was my instructor today, and she was excellent and very patient and personable with me since I'd never done pilates previously. Thank-you Tannis!!! I will definitely be back and spread the good word that you are here.
