I am hooked. I have started Barre classes and absolutely love the challenge it brings to me every time. Rebecca’s knowledge and attention to techniques makes every move effective. With the instructors on staff, I can attend a class and always feel I am getting the benefits that I would get if I signed up for a private session. I’m pumped to add the boot camp class this week! Thanks to Mindful Movements I am getting through this dreadful winter!
I have taken classes at Mindful Movements for about 5 years. Rebecca is truly a professional and ambitious business owner in addition to being an exceptional fitness instructor. She has several talented trainers on staff, like Mac. The instructors teach with just the right amount of fun and seriousness. I highly endorse their classes.
Love, love, love Mindful Movements Pilates Studio! Great atmosphere, Great teachers and SUPER classes! I had not participated in a Barre class for a while and did so last Saturday, what an AMAZING workout.
Love Barre class! Always challenging and no one is ever judgmental. Looking forward to trying new classes soon.
Rebecca and her staff are motivated by the latest knowledge of how the body works, not by the latest exercise fads. Simply, they are the best!
