"LOVED my first experience at Jen McWalters Studio:) James welcomed me with a warm smile and spirit. Class was amazing and I was able to focus on areas in my body that really needed help/attention. James is a very knowledgeable, supportive and caring instructor. "

"I had doubts about joining a class (I have more of a lone runner personality when it comes to being active) but Pilates turns out to be the best thing I could have done. It was recommended by my physical therapist after recovery from an injury. I asked how I would feel after class, and she said "Strong!". That sold me, since many of the soft tissue injuries in my life are from weakness or overuse. Jen and her instructors have all been encouraging, and the variety of classes and approaches has kept me interested. I don't think I'm ever going to get bored, as I find the more I learn, the more I am challenged in class." - Anonymous
"I love starting my Sunday mornings with James. He always takes the time to explain each position and help me get the most out of each movement. I feel peaceful and about a foot taller every time I leave." - Megan Conaty
"Return on Investment (ROI) is important in business and in how I feel: one private session per week and one 3/4 hour group stretching pay dividends for the remaining 166 hours in the week: that's 10,000% ROI per week! Thank you Jen McWalters Studio for managing my investment in time and health." -Anonymous
"I enjoyed my first beginner session with Alice. She is knowledgeable and patient." -Anonymous

Pilates private instruction allows for teachers to work one-on-one with clients. Together the teacher and student asses the student’s goals in doing Pilates. Private lessons allow the instructor to address your individual needs, and is the ideal way to practice if you are under the care of a physician for any medical issues, if you have been injured, or if you are working with any limitations. Privates are also recommended before entering a duet, trio, or group class.
Pilates increases strength, improves posture, and brings pain-free movement into your life. Both the Mat and apparatus exercises are designed to strengthen the deep core muscles of the body. Pilates also teaches you to use breath to facilitate movement. Once you have become a Pilates student, you will immediately notice the benefits of using your breath to help engage your muscles efficiently. Pilates also teaches coordination, lubricates the joints, and increases flexibility. The workout is comprised of a small number of reps of a variety of exercises, each with a specific breathing pattern. Your Pilates skills carry over into your everyday life, allowing you the ability to face your everyday tasks with “spontaneous zest and pleasure,” in the words of Joseph Pilates.
