"I have been a client of the Pilates Place for 4 years. I started with private lessons while going through chemo. It really helped me through treatment and recovery. I have continued with private Pilates lessons. I've also started yoga classes and recently tried my first pilates mat class. Julee is a great teacher, and really focuses on individual needs. Donna's yoga class has been great, and helped me relax and recharge." - Helen L.
"I had chemotherapy and a double mastectomy as part of my treatments for breast cancer. I lost flexibility and sustained nerve damage from the surgery and the chemo. Pilates enabled me to not only regain my strength, but also to tone my body, so I am in many ways more flexible than I was before my diagnosis. I look forward to my twice-weekly sessions with Julee." - Mary G.
"After a lifetime as an athlete and fitness enthusiast, I hobbled into the Pilates Place with a damaged spine from blood/ bone cancer. Julee is not only classically-trained in the true Pilates methods but has additional certification as a cancer exercise specialist. Her work is miraculous! I am stronger and "straighter". Even with the fatigue that accompanies cancer treatment, I leave every session with more energy and clarity. I truly believe Julee is as vital to my medical team as the oncologist and orthopedic surgeon (who wishes all his patients took Pilates classes). I have since added Donna's group yoga sessions to my health routine. Her experience, intuition and individual attention are outstanding. Lastly, you must see "the Place"! Not a busy gym or strip mall, but one of the most beautiful, peaceful settings with its own ability to transform." - Allison M.
