There have been many sessions when I come in to class with stress related muscle tightness and by the end of class I feel pain free and taller than when I walked into class.
My Total Body Pilates class always exceeds my expectations. Yulia is one of the best instructors at the "Y". The class is small, giving opportunity for individualized help where needed. Yulia has a gift for tailoring her instruction so that it is accessible at whatever level of expertise one may be practicing and so avoids holding back or boring more experienced class members. The exercises we do show the attention to detail and careful instructions, both verbal & demonstrated, that allow each of us to challenge ourselves and also gain a deeper understanding of the purpose of each exercise. I've done Pilates before, but got a new "aha" about some of those basic core-strengthening moves. She varies the exercises weekly to give us new challenges and work other parts of the body. I really enjoy the camaraderie of the other class members and the support they give. What I take from each class is remembering to integrate body/mind awareness into my daily activities. Thanks, Yulia, for the opportunity to take this class. I highly recommend taking Total Body Pilates and experiencing the benefits yourself!
