Here's what Clients are saying:
"Mike sees the body holistically and functions like a puzzle master guiding you through the tweaks and adjustments you need, all within the umbrella of Pilates body logic. He is a charming, sensitive and thoughtful guide and really gets what kind of work your body needs most and best. I have an older man's body carrying stress and weight. Working with Mike has made me stronger, straighter and flatter. I recommend him with no reservations and high praise". Roger (Private Client of 3 years)
Mike is a wizard. He magically teaches twenty people as if it was a private class. He has keen eyes, an infectioously playful spirit, and a boundless knowledge of the human body. He works with joy and precision, making minute adjustments to each student throughout the intense, exhilarating sixty minute class. Under Mike's guidance, exercises I've done for decades gain new meaning and impact. His use of the foam roller as well as his tireless focus on the integration of breath and body lifts Pilates to a whole new level. I always leave his class longer, stronger, and with a spring in my step. Kate Wilson (Head of Voice, The Juilliard School)
As a man of 72, I went into my first session with Mike with some trepidation: first, at that age and with various physical issues, was there anything that could be done to help me, and second, never having taken a class before, would I be able to do the work required. From my first few minutes under Mike’s wing, I felt totally at ease and both questions were resolved immediately. His teaching technique runs the gamut from Nurse Ratched to your closest friend, but it works! He never fails to get you to do what you think you can’t. The work is rigorous and demanding, but never once did I come out of a session not feeling better than when I went in, both physically and mentally. His knowledge, dedication, generosity, and by no means less important, his mordant sense of humor, make what could be a very long hour fly by. He has that rare talent shared only by the best teachers of making the student not just learn, but want to learn.

We laugh and have fun in Mike’s class and my core is noticeably stronger.
Mike is extremely professional and knowledgeable and has an upbeat teaching style. I feel comfortable because he cues the moves well, taking time to break each movement down so it is easy to follow. Mike has designed a custom program for me using the Pilates equipment. He has consistently made each session incredibly well-rounded and beneficial, and fun as well. Mike challenges me to stretch my whole body. He is devoted to helping people and is wonderfully attentive to my special needs, making certain I get the best workout possible. I highly recommend Mike if you are looking for a good workout by a well trained teacher who adds joy to your day. ( Iva- Group Ex. & Private Client of 3 years)
