For those of you out there who have been hit by the recession but still want your workouts, I have a great solution.  My Introductory Special:  3 private lessons for $180.  This allows you the ability to get the one-on-one attention that is so needed when learning Pilates.  If Pilates isn’t new to you but you are new to me, this is a great deal for a private lesson.

With this special, you are able to work out on the apparatus and see if you like Pilates and/or me.  You have nothing to lose, and your body will thank you.  Feel free to call me with any questions especially if you aren’t sure exactly what Pilates can do for you.
