I was a 43-year-old male suffering from horrible lower back pain. Simple movements like getting in and out of my car and crossing my leg over my thigh to put my socks on proved to be miserably painful. The MD recommended core strengthening with a physical therapist. My neighbor said she knew the perfect solution for me… pilates with Carole.
I didn’t hesitate to take my neighbor’s advice, although pilates was completely foreign to me. I was in the studio with Carole a few days later. That was two and a half years ago. To say the quality of my life has improved dramatically would be a gross understatement. I stand taller – nearly an inch, yes true – sit straighter, bend easier and move all around with much greater ease than I have in decades.
Needless to say, my self-awareness is sharper than ever too. Carole never ceases to amaze me. Her knowledge of how the body works and moves, and her ability to recognize how my body works and moves, and what my body needs, is extremely impressive. The pilates experience with Carole has been tremendously rewarding for both my body and my mind. I truly wish I could dedicate more time in the studio with Carole as there is so much to learn, and so many exercises to do, to make one’s self feel better. Carole has made a huge difference in my life. She’s a true professional and a great person!
