After I started working with Denise my students commented that I looked taller, my Soul cycle instructor noticed that I'm working from my abs more and our pediatrician commented that I stand taller when I'm holding my baby!
Denise makes sure I stay connected to my core. It's wonderful to be pushed and she has made me believe that I'm capable of more. I have never worked with a Pilates instructor that is so diligent and holds me so accountable - that's why the results are happening!

Since working with Denise my back pain is better, my back is straighter (I'm literally half an inch taller) and my over strength has improved tremendously. Just as important, my overall sense of well-being is better (happy Mom, happy baby!). I'm always surprised at how she often knows my body better than I do and remembers week to week what has been working for me and what has not. Working with Denise has been amazing!

As a spin instructor, I've noticed a significant change in my strength and stamina on the bike. Now having such an aware connection I move with confidence in a way I never felt before. I always feel so grounded, calm and strong after a session with Denise. I'm aware of a new type of balance in my body and life!
