“Three years ago when I decided to try Pilates with Julie I could hardly bend my knees.  When I would get a pot out of the lower cupboard I would have to hold on to the counter and lean over with my whole body to reach what I needed.  I had just gotten over a bout of sciatica and had stiffness and chronic pain in my back from a bulging disc and strain from an old injury. Julie modified a number of exercises and worked patiently with me to gain back flexibility and strength.  With continuing practice and classes I was soon able to crouch down with both knees, touch my toes and move with agility and confidence that I thought I had lost forever.  I feel younger, happier and more energetic and am enjoying the freedom of movement and the joy that it brings.
