"My pilates classes are the highlight of my week. Strenuous, challenging, relaxing and always a pleasure. Marianne is the consummate professional who targets my entire body in every session and is constantly changing the movements to fit my needs for that day, as she watches my body respond. She is encouraging, supportive and FUN. I have achieved excellence in exercises that I have never imagined that I could, because she believes in me and as a result, I believe in me."

"Marianne has been my teacher for close to five years. In that time, her work with me has transformed my body and my mind! It's very empowering to think back to where I was 5 years ago versus where I am today in terms of my strength, my flexibility and my overall body tone. Marianne as a teacher is a great balance of patience and persistence. She believed I could do what I can today far earlier then I ever did! I highly recommend her."

"I was very very skeptical when my girlfriend wanted me to take Pilates with Marianne to help with my back problems. I don't think I've even been so wrong in my life about anything. I could go on for hours about how wonderful Marianne is personally but I'll stick to the results. Her personalized approach was wonderful and left me feeling like a new man. Not only have I never had a back problem since, I always feel taller, better and stronger after doing a session!"

"Marianne taught me how to take care of myself. She's a gentle light. Our work together has served me for years and years. Real deal stuff."
"Marianne is the best pilates teacher I've ever had. She's not only rigorous in all the right ways; she understands our bodies on all levels. And she has an amazing way of communicating so that I really understand what to do, how to get the most out of pilates. Very few teachers can do that. She is attentive, encouraging, engaging and works me out like nobody else!"

"I worked with Marianne both in a group setting and in private sessions for many years and I can honestly say that my body was never as strong as when she was training me. In addition to improvements to my strength, working with Marianne dramatically improved my posture and flexibility. Moreover, Marianne was a joy to work with, making the sessions fly by so you barely realized how much you were working! I was crushed to leave Marianne when I moved back to California several years ago but my exercise regime still includes many of the things she taught me."
"During the past few years, my daughter and I have worked with Marianne extensively. Her passion for her Pilates practice, knowledge of the body and movement, her creativity and enthusiasm for teaching are constantly present. She has helped both of us immensely through individual sessions that focus on our specific needs. Building strength, flexibility and balance while reducing stress, she has helped us address some long term issues of posture and alignment, and resolve some recent aches and pains. As annoying as her hundreds might be - we are very grateful for Marianne's presence in our lives."
"Marianne is a wonderful Pilates teacher. She motivates you to work hard and changes up the routine to keep you interested. I looked forward to working on the mat as well as the reformer. I have some knee and hand issues and she was able to give me the proper exercises that strengthened these areas. I truly looked forward to my biweekly sessions with her."
