“I had dramatic healing results.”
I came to Posture looking for guidance and help with a shoulder and back injury...2 years ago? I continue to come because not only have I had dramatic healing results from the classes but learning Pilates has helped me tap in and gain strength in areas of my body I wasn’t even aware of, bringing an overall improvement to my physical quality of life. Also, everyone that works there are genius goddesses :)

“I'm definitely standing a little taller.”
There are so many benefits I have noticed since starting on a regular pilates schedule. My balance and flexibility have improved with a strengthened core and as a result of the small, fine tuned corrections the teachers have shared, I have been able to really pay attention to my form so that I can focus on strength and isolating smaller areas for better mobility. I've always been a gym goer, but the hour that I spend in a pilates class really connects me with my body in a more deliberate way. Every time I come to a class I feel both challenged and as though I have had a terrific massage simultaneously. I'm definitely standing a little taller these days and what I have taken from class translates to how I move through my day, ride in a car, sit at a desk etc. I feel armed with the tools to adjust my posture when away from a class and can often relieve any discomfort I feel on my own. I LOVE it! — Grier Runyon Murphy, Realtor at Nest Realtor Group
“I need to train regularly to stay upbeat at work & avoid injury.”

“My back pain is gone.” and “The instructors make you feel loved.”
My yoga teacher, whom I trust, talked about the benefits of Pilates and invited me to have a postural evaluation by Carla. Within ten minutes in that eval, I realized much of what I'd been taught about holding my shoulders and chest and hips as a male, was all wrong, and a likely contributor to my episodic back pain. So the reasonable next question, was now what?
I continue to take classes because 1) My back pain is gone, 2) My awareness of how may body works and what is proper alignment is growing, 3) the variety of classes and their creativity keeps things interesting, and 4) the instructors take time to understand your limitations and goals and give individualized feedback when necessary. I guess that's technical speak for "the instructors make you feel loved."
I like it when we combine yoga posses with the movement of the reformer. And who doesn't like jumping on the trampoline? — Dargan Coggeshall, Learning Rx Charlottesville
