  • “I started pilates about 1 year ago and have found myself becoming stronger, more flexible and more aware of all the muscles in my body. Paula is a great instructor who inspires and challenges her clients.”

    Nancy Client

    Anne Client
  • "Paula is very positive and knowledgeable. With her guidance and encouragement I've watch my body become stronger and more flexible. My chronic back pain is gone and I am toned all over."

    Kim Client
  • "At Centered Pilates, with Paula’s help not only have I gotten stronger, but the surprising result is that my body shape is becoming leaner and more toned—which for a 56 year-old woman is not easy to obtain."

    Cindy Client
  • "I have worked with Paula for the past 6 months. I enjoy the experience because the routines are never the same so I don’t get bored. She tailored my workouts to strengthen above and below my knee and it worked. I no longer have any knee pain and am back doing all activities I love! Thank you Paula."

    Marilyn Client
  • "Pilates with Paula is the best thing I have done for my physical fitness in a long time. I am in my early 50’s, ride horses and compete in endurance. My core body strength is so much stronger with Pilates and my riding has improved 200% as a result."
