Latest Reviews and Feedback

I have been doing Pilates with Jill for 16 years. I am now in my early 80’s. She is inspirational. The classes are always different. I am strong and flexible. I feel I owe this to Jill’s classes.

I am 93 years old and have been having private lessons with Jill for 12 years. I am certain I owe my agility and mobility at this grand age to Jill. I would hate to be without her.

I had been doing Pilates for three years. It wasn’t until I started with Jill that I truly understood what Pilates was all about, and that I started getting amazing results.
