Pilates has turned my life around. While that may sound like hyperbole, it is true. Specifically, working with Conni Ponturo for the last 8 or 9 years has turned my life around. Before I met Conni, I hurt all the time, I had difficulty getting out of a chair without assistance, and my lack of flexibility caused me to compensate in ways that affected my walking and posture.
While my arthritis continues to affect me, those affects have been greatly mitigated by my increased core strength and my markedly increased flexibility. The comments I have received regarding my improved appearance, demeanor, and overall well being have been remarkable, particularly in that I’ve gotten older!
At my recent 40 year high school reunion, many people remarked about my “youthful appearance”. That would not have occurred 10 years ago! Conni and her staff are consummate professionals, and perhaps more importantly, caring individuals who make a difference in the lives of their clients. I am grateful to have been a recipient of the great work done at The Absolute Yoga & Pilates Studio.
