I began training with Shannon a few years ago to increase my mobility, lose weight, and to increase my overall health.  Even though my weight has fluctuated over time, my flexibility and skills have continued to improve. My posture has improved as well as my range of motion. My flexibility has been admired by others struggling to reach past their toes.  My yoga and other Cross-fit exercises are improved by the activities and skills that I learned at Encore Pilates.

When I was preparing for a hysterectomy, my doctor confirmed Pilates was the best exercise I could do to strengthen my abdominal muscles prior to surgery. I credit Encore Pilates for improving my core and shortening my recovery period after surgery.
