I love Pilates because it has made me more aware of my body and how it works. I have come in with severe back pain thinking I should cancel my lesson but then Angelique helps me stretch and loosen my back so I can walk without pain. I feel like Pilates is one of the positive things I can do for my body that does so much for me. I would advise everyone to try Pilates.
I look forward to every lesson, and can’t believe how quickly an hour can go by. I walk out of there feeling refreshed, taller and relaxed.
I was always intrigued by Pilates. When my back pain was interfering with my life, I decided I give it a try. I knew from my first hour of instruction that it would cure me. And it has. As long as I attend class regularly, I am pain free and feeling strong and tall.
I love that in every class I learn techniques and information which I apply in my daily life.
I am hooked!
Thank you, Pilates. Thank you, Angelique!
I have enjoyed doing Pilates with Angelique for the past 5 years. In this time, Angelique has guided me from a beginner to having a real appreciation of how to move with control and stability. Angelique is a fantastic instructor and she has patiently worked with me to build mystrength and confidence.
I am happy to say that Angelique and Pilates have truly made a difference in my life. They have taught me that doing the best you can for yourself is your most important accomplishment. I always look forward to my time with Angelique and maintaining my commitment to do something for myself. At the end of my session, I feel both drained and energized, and look forward to the next date with myself and Angelique!
I have had several major spine surgeries and a major hip surgery over the last ten years. I had gotten to the point where traditional physical therapy was getting me no where. I was actually told that it was a strong possibility that more surgery was in my future. I found Angelique through a friend. She developed a program that addressed my specific issue-scoliosis.
Angelique is a true professional and sets the gold standard of Pilates instructors. Her years of experience in the field of fitness, dance and body work clearly contribute to her magnificence as a teacher. Her demonstrations of the exercises are immaculate and articulate. She is encouraging and great fun to work with.
To think of what she has done for me brings tears to my eyes. I noticed a difference in my body after the very first lesson. I walked out feeling like I was able to breathe for the first time in years. My back pain has been reduced, if not totally eliminated. I no longer take pain medicine on a regular basis. I also no longer need any more surgery on my back and feel like I was given my life back.
