What a gem this place is. Great instructors who are incredibly knowledgeable about the body, with years of experience under their belts. The studio itself is lovely, with great equipment. Pilates is a great system as it's relatively easy, but works really fast to get results. I always feel so much better after a session. I recommend Pilates to my friends who aren't into working out, but need to get stronger and more flexible. I'm hooked on Pilates.
