What a find! Turning Point will be seeing me again soon. Their kindness and patience was extraordinary: I went to the wrong studio, arrived late and yet, Roxanna treated me like a treasured private student. Her classical precision with in-the-fly neck accommodations were very impressive. As always, I need more ab strength and her cues and adjustments pointed me in the right direction on curl ups.
What a great studio! I love that each class is kept to a small group. Classes feel more personalized. I love Sonia I actually followed her to this studio from another location. I have come to love Robin as well. I am not a Pilates pro or even consider myself to be athletic but Robin and her teachers make you feel very comfortable and really work with you every step of the way!! I hated working out and I actually look forward to my Pilates sessions each week!
Glad to be on the Pilates machine again! Robin is an amazing instructor. Great new location!
I love Turning Point Pilates! Robin Solo is a talented and informed instructor with a special knack for knowing what is needed to stabilize and strengthen the body. I also love that this is truly traditional / classical Pilates. I was searching for a studio that would teach it in this way, as there are so many other hybrids and offshoots of styles that I don't like. Some of the other studios and classes out there are so fast paced with large groups of students that I actually thought I was going to hurt myself in them. I especially love the Jump Combo class at Turning Point because it gets in a good cardio workout on the reformer. If you're looking for small personalized group classes or top notch private instruction, this is the Pilates studio for you!
In privates we talk to the client to determine their goals as well as take in information regarding their body, injuries, chronic pain, activites. We then evaluate how they move and work to create a balanced healthy body. It's not overnight but you will feel and look better over time.
All the teachers at Turning point have gone through year plus comprehensive certification programs in Classical Pilates.

Try a few studios and teachers. Give them a fair shout and make an informed decision. A fancy studio doesn't necessarily mean the teachers are any good. A teacher who had been teaching 10 years also does not necessarily make he/she any good. Come to your own conlusions.
Why do I want to try Pilates, what are my expectations and goals and can i make a committment?
