“I have been going to Mandy for a long time for Pilates. When I needed knee replacement last fall, she gave me a set of exercises to do at home to strengthen my leg muscles in preparation for the operation. I did them religiously for about two months. When I had the surgery, my recovery was way ahead of expectations. Both my doctor and the physical therapists were extremely impressed with the progress I made. Thanks, Mandy, for your help in making my recovery so successful.”

“When I moved to VT in 2012, I was surprised and delighted to find Motivation Studios.  As a Pilates devotee for more than 10 years in New York City, I had studied one on one with a number of excellent instructors.  Mandy did not disappoint, she really knows her stuff and always keeps it interesting! “

“I now cannot imagine life without Mandy and pilates in it. It is the best anti-aging program I can think of, a routine I miss when we are away in the winter.”

” I suffered from chronic lower back pain for a few years, and wanted to try everything I could to avoid prolonged suffering and/or surgery. My acupuncturist suggested I try Pilates and referred me to Mandy. Little did I know that it would be a life altering experience! Not only did I reduce my pain and strengthen my core (who knew I had obliques!), but I toned my whole body. And the mind-body-spirit affects have been life altering. I laugh every workout (thank you Mandy for your humor!), and can’t imagine life without Mandy and Pilates.

Why is Motivation Studio Pilates and Mandy as an instructor the right choice for Pilates? She specializes in working with each client’s individual needs, and helps each person achieve pain free movement far beyond his or her expectations.”
