TESTIMONIALS

 

"I've been coming to Progressive Pilates since day one, mainly because I would follow Brynne Billingsley, the founder, to the ends of the earth. Her knowledge of and respect for the body is immediately apparent to anyone who meets her. She's sensitive and nurturing, but unafraid to push you to become stronger, more flexible and more in tune with your own body. Over the three years she's been operating, she's accrued a stable of equally talented practitioners, all of whom share a deep wisdom of and reverence for the body's beauty, strength and resilience. The studio space is bright, airy and inviting - the sort of place I always look forward to visiting after a long day on my feet. A true haven."  - Lauren

 

"I know this will sound dramatic - but Katie has totally changed my life. I herniated a disc in my lower back 10 years ago & since then have struggled to find anything or anyone who could help. Until 2 years ago, when I met Katie & started Pilates. The two hours I spend with Katie every week are the best two hours of my week. I walk out from each session - taller, stronger, able to move more freely - and most importantly - pain free. Katie is kind & extremely patient. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in Pilates. She is the best teacher you could ever wish for & I call her my Pilates angel for rescuing me from a life of chronic pain & helping me to regain my strength. She is, quite simply, a life-changer!"  -Laura

 

"Pilates sessions have been an investment in my healthy (and therefore happy) pregnancy.  Coming into this second pregnancy I was more aware of how much work the body has to do in carrying and birthing a baby.   After working with Brynne I know that the post partum weeks and months will be very different, because I am approaching the birth with a body as strong and supple as it could possibly be!"  - Charlotte

 

"Working with Monique has been a gift. I have been inactive for two years now due to a herniated disc and she is the first person to get me moving, starting to feel strong, and in no pain whatsoever. She is so knowledgeable, precise, intuitive and dedicated. Monique always talks me through each exercise carefully and is somehow always able to get me to push further than I thought I could. I am very lucky to have found her and this studio - I am much happier and healthier for it."  - Julia

 

"My sessions with Cristina are highlights of my week and help to keep me sane. During my pregnancy, she helped me stay strong and flexible. I bounced right back to my old self within 2 weeks of having my little girl, and I have to credit a good deal of this to her. I am back with her now post baby, and I look forward to each session for its perfect mix of variety, hard work, recovery and laughter. I work hard with Cristina, but her personality makes sessions a pleasure. Our sessions are far from routine, with special attention paid to any physical issues and new exercises each time. I have been coming to her for nearly 18 months now and we are always doing new things that are informed by her continuing education on everything from fascial massage to reflexology. I treasure my Tuesday and Thursday mornings with Cristina and feel so lucky to have her right around the corner!"  - Allison

 

" I've been going to Progressive Pilates Williamsburg for about a year and it is THE BEST! Katie is an amazing instructor and everyone there is so nice, knowledgeable and fantastic at what they do. The space is clean, airy and beautiful as well."  - Kate

 

"After completing rehab for back surgery, I was advised by my surgical team to do Pilates to avoid future injury. I am a physician myself, and was skeptical, not knowing much about what Pilates even was. "It's totally worth the investment. All the orthopedists here do it," I was told at HSS. It turned out to be terrific advice. I have been a client of Progressive Pilates Williamsburg now for over 18 months. During this time, I have experienced a remarkable transition in my body. I have improved my core strength, general alignment, flexibility, and body awareness to well beyond my goals and expectations. I have gone from crouched, tight, and inactive post-surgical patient prone to frequent joint injuries, to a generally fit and athletic person, and I genuinely ascribe much of the credit to my work here. Brynne and her team are amazing. I have had private sessions with nearly everybody who works there, and I have my preferences, but I have never had a bad session. Quite to the contrary, I am constantly being challenged in new ways. The instructors provide a great deal of individual attention to clients and they bring a variety of backgrounds and experiences that they incorporate into their teaching. Depending on your own needs and experience you may prefer the classes or the private sessions. I do both. The classes are excellent and surprisingly varied. They are a good way to ensure you are building and maintaining you core, pelvic, and glute strength on a regular basis, among other benefits... Pilates is a great thing to do for yourself, and has enabled me to do so many other activities and avoid injury in a way I never anticipated."  -Jason

 

"I love the teachers here. They are so knowledgeable about the body and I feel like my sessions are both strengthening and therapeutic. And they really care about you and your progress. Seriously the best pilates studio I've run into in a long time - and I'm an acupuncturist so I'm very picky about bodywork"  -Sashimid
