It’s this kind of dedication that inspires so many to join The Pilates Center and learn how to teach themselves. Just hear what some of their clients have to say: 

“My favorite thing about The Pilates Center is the caliber of teaching, and the commitment and kindness that Amy and Rachel show towards anyone who walks in the door.”

“No one lets their ego come before the possibility of new knowledge. I have always appreciated their openness of trying to understand how another might be seeing something.” 

“Amy and Rachel have taken the knowledge they have, treasured it, expanded it, and adapted it. They’ve kept the spirit of Pilates alive and given us each a piece of it through their legacy.”

It’s no wonder people keep coming back for more—the spirit of kindness, inclusivity, and transformation is palpable at The Pilates Center. And Amy and Rachel can’t wait to celebrate!
