I have been a student of Soma Pilates for over 3 years. I look forward to my sessions because Janet is an incredibly patient instructor with an ability to push me beyond what I think I'm capable of. Yet, she always asks and listens to what it is I want to accomplish. Too many instructors lose sight of this and work you out with their goals and agenda in mind, but not Janet. My body feels absolutely great after each session. Overall, I am amazed at how far my body strength, especially my core, and posture has improved.
