“I’ve been working out at assorted gyms with a variety of trainers for most of my adult life. I’ve never seen results as defined and as immediate as my training with Nonna. Between my family and my work, my time is limited. It’s very nice to know that it’s so well spent in Nonna’s studio.”

I’ve known Nonna for over 10 years and I trust her completely with my body. When I leave my session I feel like she’s fine tuned me.  Not only is she an incredibly skilled Pilates teacher but she takes a wholistic approach to training and making sure my body is in alignment so that I get the most out of my session.  I look and feel my best when training with Nonna. She keeps my body strong yet feminine.

Doctor“I began working with Nonna in 1998 to help with a lower back injury. I was so impressed with Nonna’s teaching method and her understanding of the human body that I began referring my own patients to her. Nonna is a true professional and knows how to facilitate the rehabilitation of patients who have chronic and severe injuries. For those who want to get into shape Nonna’s workouts are challenging and focused. Whether you are hoping to recover from an injury, prevent injury, or get into shape, I highly recommend working with her.”

Dr. David Tannenbaum

I have tried many different work out regimes, but I have found the most effective is working with Nonna.”

“I began working out with Nonna in 2006, already having knowledge in Pilates. I can safely say she is an excellent teacher. She is very in touch with the human body and how different they all are. In our pilates session she focused on my body’s needs and designed a routine to match it. She keeps the training fresh by expanding her methods with new moves. She demonstrates a passion for what she does, which is a delight.”
