"I had a wonderful time and so appreciate your encouragement and patience with me today. I’m a bit sore, in all the good ways and find myself correcting little alignment things all day. This is just what I need and I can’t wait to move forward.
Thank you so much for this perfect reintroduction to Pilates.
(after first private session) “I felt lifted. That my body was lighter and longer than it had been in years. Or ever. It was like I was levitating. It was amazing”.
FOLLOW UP: “I'd tried yoga, rowing, biking, stretching, massage, trigger point therapy, dry needling, ice, heat, pills, cremes, weightlifting, ultrasound, electric shock, walking, jogging, sleeping in different positions, fancy pillows, hanging upside down, Wiccans, and Witch Doctors. But nothing has seemed to get to the root of my spine pain like our 3 sessions. Amazing. Thank you."
“I have fibromyalgia plus many other auto immune issues. My autonomic system is also a mess. I have to think long and hard before I exercise to ensure I’m not too tired before I begin and that I don’t have too many commitments after each exercise class. Tara has been so very kind and patient. She has done research on some of my conditions so she can better understand them and help me further. She is truly remarkable and I consider myself beyond fortunate to have her on my health care team. PS: When I started Pilates with Tara, I had never done anything like this before. I was truly a beginner.”
“Tara is amazing. She helped me greatly with her Pilates knowledge and I had a surgery on my feet with hardware still in. After taking a few Pilates classes with Tara (she didn’t even know about my feet) and following her directions I noticed changes on how my feet felt. I also noticed how the pain in my feet was going away. My feet started to feel more solid and stable, even different looking (better)."
"I found Tara by chance through a general internet search roughly four years ago, and I’m so thankful that I did. I was nervous to start as I only had a little mat experience. I had a busted shoulder from a car accident and a sprained ankle from helping my mom move. Tara was and is, so patient, thoughtful, and enthusiastic in her teaching. I immediately felt comfortable and have since I followed her to three different locations. I, in NO way have a love for working out, but I lOVE to come to Tara’s studio, and I would recommend that this is a place for EVERYONE.”
Tara, I wanted to thank you for yesterday’s class. I have had so much pain in my back and could never isolate that muscle in the middle of my back that needs strengthening for my pain to be relieved. Yesterday for the first time I my life I saw the possibility of getting better - maybe even healed. Thanks so much!"
"I really loved Pilates and have always been so scared to go because I am so inflexible. No one can compare to you!”
"I really enjoyed today. When I got home, I felt taller and lighter like I was lengthened! Can't wait to come back to do it again!”
“I absolutely love coming to Bodymax Pilates . Tara is so patient and motivating. I have chronic back pain and tightness in my lower body. Some days I wake up "crooked". However, when I leave my Pilates sessions...I always feel balanced, centered, and refreshed. Tara you are amazing!'
"You should be proud of what you do! I feel better than I have in a year. I and my family thank you for making a difference. I had no idea what to expect when I tried Pilates, but these are not the results I was expecting. Lower back pain is non-existent. You would be proud of me, as I daily make a conscious effort every night when I lay down and before I go to bed to have my "ankle magnets on" and rotate my legs to "open my hips". That little exercise is raising my awareness of the body's desire to be more "In-line". I can feel the stretch in my back and the results are life-changing. Reducing the mental weight of carrying around pain is such a relief. Again, be proud of what you do. Thank you!
"I legit felt like I looked taller at the gym today. It's my spine and posture!!!! ....Making the "pain" worth it. Oh how I love Pilates!" .
"I love our sessions so much! Please keep kicking my ass!"
"That class was tough, but my body feels amazing! Total "internal shower". Just what I needed. Literally every time I drive home, 5 minutes into my drive I get this overall feeling of being so refreshed! I think my body is thanking me. I definitely have the "Pilates itch" . I am starting to be obsessed. You're awesome, and so is Pilates!."
"I love, love, love, this studio. Tara is amazing!! I have always heard such great things about Pilates but was scared to try it out. However, when I decided to check out Bodymax Pilates as a beginner I was very thankful that I did. Tara is amazing and just made me feel at ease and she gave me encouragement like no other. As a beginner she was able to lead me through Pilates moves that I never thought I would never be able to do and not only that, I cannot wait to do another session. If you ever are in need of a great Pilates studio and an awesome teacher please check her out."
"Tara is a delightful human with a great eye for correction. A fantastic teacher with a wealth of knowledge. Her teaching style is phenomenal. I am a Pilates teacher myself and will be joining Tara every time I am in GA! You will not find this in larger class settings. I suggest privates to get the most benefit though!"
"I feel like someone grabbed my hands, someone grabbed my feet, and they ran separate ways. Sounds painful, but it feels good. I have muscles in my back that are sore that I've really never felt much, even while lifting. Most of the time when I'm sore I'm super tight. Some of the places that I am sore, I feel stretched...even my feet! Pilates is definitely something that I need to be doing. I don't think I could do it without you so please don't retire or move away. I was calm, eased, and was able to forget everything else for a time."
"You have really helped us both and we are grateful. I have been walking with pain in my hips for 15 years. Until I started Pilates with you."
"I LOVE my private Pilates sessions with Tara. She is an amazing teacher and is quick to 'hone in' on her clients' needs and skills. As a physical therapist who teaches exercises daily to my patients, I have learned so much from her! I look forward to my sessions with her... and she has me doing things that I forgot my body once did.
Thank you Tara - for pushing me to want to do more!"
"Pilates helps a weightlifter strengthen your mind to muscle connection."
"I feel like I have a whole NEW body! I'm so shocked - unbelievable. I am totally being transformed. I'm proud to have you as my teacher".
