Nonna has a heart of gold and a sharp tongue. Before I could even open my mouth to tell her my physical ailments she already told me what my issues were just by looking at me and she was 100% right! See I was in an accident back in 2011 where I broke the majority of my spine when I was hit by a construction vehicle while walking across the street. Countless years of physical therapy couldn’t fix what Nonna completed in...

- Rachel Eberle

“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 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.”
