I have been taking Pilates classes since 1997 and have had many good Pilates coaches. Mara Reinhardt is far and above one of the best Pilates instructors I have had the pleasure of working with. Pilates has helped me manage stress, attain both strength and flexibility within my body, manage my weight to where it was in my 20's (I am 58), and allow me to move and feel like I did when I was much younger.

Mara's method of instruction is an excellent style that allows me to accomplish my goals. She varies the routine constantly so both your body and your mind stay active. During instruction she goes over correct form, what muscles should be working, and gently encourages you to do a little more. I find with this approach I do so much more than I thought I would be capable of doing and feel at the end of a session that I had an incredibly satisfying and strenuous workout.

I am fortunate to have had the pleasure of working with Mara and getting to know her personally. Whether you are a beginning or advanced student, you will greatly benefit from Mara's teaching technique and enjoy the culture she creates in her studio.
