great instructors :) – I was just walking down 2nd ave the other day and stumbled upon this studio. The desk girl was super friendly and showed me all around the studio. I ended up taking a tower mat class the next day and I left feeling awesome! There were a few advanced woman in the class, but as a beginner I felt totally comfortable and the teacher guided me along.
I will definitely come back with my friend next time. Time to get in bikini shape!
Terriffic Pilates Experience – I've been coming to CFM for years! CFM offers true pilates instruction by highly qualified instructors in a calming and relaxing environment. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The decor is contemporary and yet soothing. It is an oasis in a busy city and whenever I leave I feel that I've received a total body workout and am energized for the rest of the day and night!
Fantastic workout! Great Staff! – I have been an avid pilates student for a few years now and recently moved to the UES. I was looking everywhere for a pilates studio when I found Center for Movement. This studio is fantastic! The staff is extremely caring and attentive to each individual they teach. They work with your body and make sure you get the maximum workout without hurting or straining yourself. I have definitely noticed a positive change in my body and in my strength.
Not Just For "Twenty Somethings"! – Center Studio caters to people of all ages and as an almost Medicare eligible client, I will be saving the gov't a lot of money because of the healthy exercise I get. As a warm, friendly and welcoming place for those new to Pilates and those who have done it for years, Center Studio is the best place I have found in NYC and I have dilligently tried others. My instructor is smart, knowledgeable and very encouraging. She thoughtfully alters my exercises to relieve stress on an occasionally achy body part. I often go to the user- friendly Center Studio site to switch my sessions, add new ones and book times with other instructors. And all the instructors I've tried have been great. The convenient location in the Upper West Side JCC enables me to reward myself for my energetic and satisfying workout with a smoothie in the cafe downstairs after my session.
The Most Rewarding Pilates in All of Manhattan – As an avid Pilates student, I have not come across and studio that is as enjoyable, effective and beautiful as this one. The professional staff makes it their personal goal to challenge student, and attend to their needs/injuries. The inexpensive rates permit you to purchase a series ( which could consist of 5, 10, or 20 clases) The integrity of the method is preserved by the knowledgable staff, and owners ( who are also fantastic instructors) This intimate studio puts you at ease while engaging in Pilates Tower or Reformer Class. Be sure to check them out, for your experience will surpass any Pilates you have had in the past!
Best Pilates Studio – What a great studio! This is by far the best and most professional Pilates Studio I've been to on the upper east and west side. Love the instructors and all the staff. I'ts a beautiful environment too! A great workout and many options to choose from.
A Great Studio – Center for Movement is a great studio, with a flexible schedule, and warm knowledgeable instructors. I do no live in the city, but I work there and I try and squeeze in a session whenever I can. The studio has been more than accommodating and I have never had a problem finding a class that fits into my tight schedule. The classes are challenging but well worth the time and the instructors work hard to help each client reach their full potential. The personable atmosphere is one of the best features at Center for Movement. The instructors are very kind and give each client personal attention and the owners are always around the studios and show a true passion for their work. Center for Movement is a business that was created with love and commitment to people?s well being and it has stayed true to its roots since day one.
I'm getting what I want: consistently excellent Pilates instruction. – Owned and actively managed by two highly qualified, educated, professional, competent and certified instructors who studied with Joseph Pilates? premier student ? Romana Kryzanowska ? The Center for Movement?s (CFM) 2nd Avenue (at 77th Street) location is their third since 1998, indicating their growing popularity.
Their facilities are remarkable ? new equipment, constantly clean and well-lit environment, friendly and helpful staff and a group of qualified, certified, caring and friendly instructors who always explain what they?re doing with, to and for your body ? with sincerity and expertise. You get out what you put into any workout ? and CFM?s instructors help you work out hard, always ? always ? with the Pilates focus on core strengthening and breathing. I vary my sessions with different instructors as each one emphasizes different facets of the Pilates exercises, providing me a deeper appreciation of the techniques.
Groups are small, and sessions vary from beginner to advanced, with enough variety and flexibility for anyone to attend their own level of workout. CFM?s equipment ? Mats, Reformers and Towers, are all Pilates-based. Privates are available, but I prefer the Group Tower Power sessions most, as they combine the best of both Mat- and Equipment-based instruction and workout, and I learn from the instructors? comments to others as well as to me.
Males and females of varying ages ? even other Pilates instructors ? show up at any given session, and my experience is that attention is always given to those with special needs.
I did a lot of homework (and visits) when I decided to attend a professional studio after practicing on my own for several years. CFM impressed me more than any other in the area. I?ve been attending CFM now for a few months, and expect to continue for as long as I?m able. Their prices are very competitive, their schedules are all day and most evenings, and I?m getting what I want: consistently excellent Pilates instruction.
Most comfortable environment I have ever worked out in! – I went to center for movement because I am a student and received a discount rate. I had a great experience and will return many more times! This was my first time doing pilates and the instructor made me feel extremely comfortable and was very patient. Class size was small. It was also very clean, bright and happy! Go and bring a friend.
NOT "lost in the crowd" group classes – While searching for local Pilates in NYC I came across Center For Movement. I was interested in a studio to expand my knowledge of Pilates (having a background in Dance and previous experience). The studio is welcoming, the instructors are well informed and the class sizes are a perfect size. There is enough individual attentention that one does not feel lost in the crowd. In a convenient location (close to bus and subway) this a a great studio and highly recommend it.
