My 12 year-old son and I have been attending classes with Patte for the past two months (now on class #10). Our physical therapist recommended trying Pilates due to our history of some ankle/lower extremity injuries and core weakness. Patte's assessments of our evolving needs are detailed and thoughtful, and she tailors the exercises to specific muscle groups that require attention. Scheduling is very easy and her overall approach is perfect for us - challenging yet professional, with a wonderful sense of humor. Our physical therapist has noticed significant improvement - my son's posture has improved dramatically and I feel taller too. I wish I could go several times a week - the classes are a wonderful stress reliever on top of the physical benefits. Thank you Patte!
