What People Are Saying

I had done some Pilates a long time ago but this was my first time in New York. The class is very personal and as you are working one-on-one, the progress is quick and more importantly for me, I'm learning about the form. It's about doing it right in order to achieve long-lasting results. Erica is very experienced and knowledgeable and her skills extend beyond Pilates as she is also a dancer. I'm really enjoying Pilates with her and would recommend her classes to anyone interested in Pilates. --Isabelle D. 

Erica's career as a dancer, choreographer, and dance educator gives her the Pilates edge. Insight into the individual body is key and that is what she is able to do/give. She is giving and warm and a pleasure to be with.
Long-lasting change starts with Erica at Pilates Zone. --Pilates Shop Y.

I have worked with Erica for 8 years now and consider her a keystone to maintaining my core strength. She has guided my body back after two pregnancies ( 2nd one was with twins) helping my body re-align, tone and center in core strength. Grateful for the calm and clear energy and insight she trains me with. Highly recommend her. --Cynthia S.

 

I am an older person who has experienced sever back pain.  I was told by my doctors that I should work on improving overall strength particularly my core. I feel lucky to have found Erica, she is a highly trained and dedicated Pilates instructor who really knows what she's doing.  Erica had been trained by practitioners of the classical Pilates method but she also has knowledge of various modalities so she can adapt each sessions to the specific needs of her client.  She is observant and caring and has helped me to experience a better quality of life through exercise and movement. I recommend her highly.  Esther P.

I have been working with Erica for 6 months now and have never felt as connected and strong and pain free in my body.
After practicing Ashtanga yoga for 20 years with a series of injuries and repetitive movement patterns, I felt like I needed someone to help me to continue to be strong as I learned to move in a more intelligent way.
Erica knows more than any one I have worked with about anatomy and movement and she's a hidden treasure working solo out of her sunny bright parlor floor.
She has a sharp eye and can see when I am using the correct muscles and breathing.  She pushes me enough to get me stronger and gives me homework exercises to improve during the week.  My life has definitely gravitated towards the positive since working with her.

I have been doing Pilates for many years and Erica is by far the best teacher I have ever had. She is highly trained and knowledgeable about Pilates and coming from a dance background gives her a deeper understanding and sense of body movement and mechanics.  She is extremely kind and has helped me tremendously.
I Highly recommend Erica. --Mary C.
