I was extremely nervous when I first started taking Pilates. Everything about the reformer intimidated me, and I didn’t trust my body or my balance. Alison made me feel safe, confident, and comfortable on the reformer. She is patient, funny, full of energy, and strikes the perfect balance between rigorous and restorative. I love Alison’s classes, but I also love that she pushes me out of my comfort zone and has taught me to trust myself to try new things. Her classes combine deep stretching with high intensity sets, and if you take barre, there’s a good amount of shaking too. She is always willing to help you modify to make it more challenging, or there to adjust your reformer when you need a hand. I highly recommend taking classes with this amazing lady– she’ll bust your buns and also deeply restore your muscles.
