Euphoria though Pilates with Nadia!. After a long day at work, I fight the 520 bridge traffic to go to Pilates with Nadia. And ohmygoodness! it is so worth it. I leave feeling euphoric. The best part is that feeling lasts for days. I have been going to BodyTonic for about 6 weeks. Admittedly, that is not long, but it is enough for me to feel stronger, walk straighter and sit up taller. I can already feel my body changing - and I know it has everything to do with Nadia's attention to detail and her focus on me. She is so in tune with body movement, she can tell me precisely what I need to do to get the best results. I am rejuvenated, and feel great days later. I used to indulge in a massage to alleviate my back pains. Now, I happily run to Nadia to make myself stronger! I highly recommend this studio - specifically Nadia - to anyone who wants to gain strength and just do something nice for themselves. I swear it is better than getting a massage!
Bodytonic is the best seattle pilates studio!.
I've been working out at Bodytonic for about a year and am loving it. I relocated here from New York and tried out 3 different studios before deciding on Bodytonic. I choose Bodytonic based on:
1)Atmosphere - The studio definitely has the best atmosphere of any of the studios I've visited. The teachers and other clients alike are all very friendly and down to earth. The studio is totally cute and housed in a super cool historic turn of the century building in pioneer square and they play awesome music (which definitely helps inspire a good workout.)
2)Instructors - The instructors are well educated and a perfect balance of kick your a**, yet nurturing, supportive, and inspiring. They always keep me on my toes and keep me challenged, no cookie cutter workouts here. Plus they have always have been so accommodating with my schedule!
3)Pricing - Their rates can't be beat!
I also have to mention that since working out here my chronic shoulder pain has been alleviated and I've dropped down a few sizes. Love it!
Bodytonic Pilates. I have been working out at Bodytonic for close to 2 years and I dont have a single complaint! Nadia is an excellent instructor, she is also a really great gal. I am often impressed that she can be so flexible with people and their schedules and still run such a great little studio. Her customer serivce is exceptional and you won't recive this kind of specialized care at a larger pilates studio. If you are looking for a fun but challenging workout then this is your place!
Great workout, parking can be tough.. I've been going here for 1 1/2 years and enjoyed every minute of! Nadia is experienced and great at helping you work on your deficiencies. I have a bad back and bad knees, which have improved greatly since I've started working out with her. She's also very flexible and fair in regards to scheduling and makeup sessions. Overall it is well worth the money and parking hassle!
Excellent training and customer service.
I have been training at Bodytonic Pilates for over one year and have had an excellent experience with both the training and customer service. I have found that the training with Nadia is a great addition to my other workouts/activities.
I wanted to comment on the review by munich8 and say that I have never had a problem with Nadia's customer service. Her cancellation policy is very clear and reasonable. This is a small business. When someone cancels at the last minute, there is not enough time to fill that spot and the studio essentially bears the loss especially if the person canceling tries to do their "make up" by adding it to their next package. It is possible that a larger studio might be able to accommodate last minute cancellations but I doubt that they will be able to provide the training and service that Nadia and Erin can provide.
I would highly recommend Nadia and Bodytonic Pilates.
customer service is lacking. I attended private and duet lessons with Nadia for about 4 months and referred 4 people to her studio. I thought the instruction was good, but the customer service was lacking. A few weeks ago my husband hurt his neck the day before he was to start a new package of duet lessons. He emailed Nadia the morning of his lesson and told her about his injury and said that he would like to postpone his package until the following week. She responded with a series of emails about how this would be unacceptable and he would need to sign up on the make-up board for a make-up class. I realize that policies are there for a reason, but I would think that an injury would qualify for an exception. My husband decided to just cancel his package (which was scheduled but not paid for), but Nadia demanded that he pay her $38 for the lesson he canceled due to his neck injury. She said he could transfer this lesson to me. He agreed to do this. (FYI--$38 is the price of a single duet lesson, not the price that a duet lesson that was in a package, which would be less.) I brought in a check to Nadia at one of my lessons and she said nothing to me about it. After my current package ended, I asked about using the transferred lesson at my normal time and Nadia said that was not possible. She said that I had to use the transferred lesson as a make-up lesson, so I would have to sign up for a new package and then come in and sign up on the make up board. Isn't this whole thing extremely difficult and ridiculous? It is no wonder that I have decided not to go back to a studio that treats its clients this way. Now instead of having 2 customers who continually buy $200 packages, she has the check for $38 that she seemed to want so badly. I will be finding another Seattle pilates studio--and there are plenty to choose from--that values its clients and customer service a little more.
Editorial Review. Pioneer Square Pilates studio offers group, private and in-home lessons using reformers, stability chairs, trapeze tables and mats.
Great workout!. I've been working out with Nadia for a few years, it does'nt seem that long..... time flies when you're having fun. It's great working out at this fully equipped pilates studio. Nadia is very knowledgable in all the excercises. She makes subtle corrections in your movements that help perfect alignment and work all the correct muscle groups. You leave feeling like "this is crazy", having worked muscles you never thought you had. She definitely gives you a routine that is right for you! The prices are very reasonable as well.
Great strength training option. I have been doing pilates for a couple of years and have been with Nadia most of that time. She provides a good strength training work out - I prefer not to lift weights - and the side benfits are increased flexibility and balance. Nadia is very personable so we wind up laughing alot when I'm at the studio and I also find her very approachable when I ask to shake up my work out. If you're interested in trying Pilates this is the right studio.
Fantastic!. I have been working out with Nadia for about 2 years now. She is an extremely competent instructor and has very reasonably priced packages. She is very knowledgable and good at keeping students on track. At the same time she is fun to be around and the studio is a comfortable, colorful & upbeat place to be. I definately look forward to working out because I get to go to such a pleasant place and get great results at the same time!
