I have been taking Pilates from Lisa Pellow for nearly a year. I am amazed at how much stronger I am! I used to have back problems when I played golf. Now they are gone! I am also much more flexible. Little things like being able to sit Indian Style on the floor are now easy! I never knew how much increasing my core strength would translate to my overall well-being. I also appreciate how Lisa adapts my workout to my strengths and challenges. She is always encouraging too!
