Two years later I can easily do moves that seemedimpossible when I started.” - Laura G.“My experience at Evolution has been amazing. I’d taken Pilates for over 10 yearsbefore meeting Michelle and her group. Each class or private session has beenchallenging as well as fun! I love Pilates and I look forward to setting newintentions for myself in 2016 and they will definitely include time spent at Evolution;getting stronger and staying healthy, both physically and mentally. Thank you forbeing here!” - Anne M.“Pilates is not just another form of exercise. It is a journey to find true mind bodyconnection. It only takes one class to get hooked!” - Marissa J.“Evolution Pilates is comprised of exceptional instructors who are well trained,knowledgeable and diverse. Small class sizes allow for individual attention and apersonalized workout. Pilates on the reformer is a great full body workout that isalso relaxing and restorative. I always have a wonderful experience!!” - Laura L.“I’ve been at Evolution Pilates for less than a year, having begun my practice atanother local studio 9 years ago. I’ve done classes with all of the instructors andthey are all fantastic, knowledgeable, supportive and challenging. Even after 9years, I get an amazing workout every time. My private sessions with Cathy takemy Pilates to a whole different level! Pilates will keep me strong, agile and flexiblewell into my senior years!” - Kelly M.“I’ve been wanting to try Pilates for the longest time and Evolution was the perfectfind! Michelle is so precise in her instructing while being both gentile andwonderfully zen. This is the perfect workout and positive atmosphere, I wouldrecommend to anyone of any level!” - Julia E.“My name is Barbara and I came to Evolution Pilates in 2011 as I was just turning50 and with a very weak abdomen and back, not to mention very low self esteem.Due to a very aggressive breast cancer and months of chemotherapy and bilateralmastectomy surgery, and not to mention in a horrible place with my job and mypersonal life, I as extremely exhausted. Traditional work out methods never reallyworked for me. Walking on the treadmill was boring, although I did it regularly,running wasn’t really an option, since I also had asthma and at the time regularweight training would not have been appropriate....I wasn’t sure I would everregain my strength, much less be in a better frame of mind. Then I called andspoke with Michelle at Evolution. She thought I should come in to be evaluated.The short version is: I fell in love with the gentleness of Pilates and felt challengedevery time I went to class. Evolution Pilates has a very intimate and nurturingenvironment. It is very different practicing Pilates with an instructor and on thereformer. It changed my life for the better. Not only did it help abdominal musclesand back, but it made me feel more positive about my body and outlook on life.Michelle and her staff are so wonderful. The classes are small so you get theattention you need to help you get a whole body work out, and make sure you arepositioned to do the moves correctly so you get the results you want. The hourlong classes go by so fast because you are engaged with your body and mindfulabout getting your posture and the positions correct. Pilates is gentle on yourjoints, slower paced and super effective. If you have thought about looking intoPilates classes, you should look into Evolution Pilates. I am so very glad I did.” - Barbara R.”I struggled with my weight for most of my life when I discovered Pilates living inNYC. I was amazed at the transformation in my body, posture and energy after justten weeks of classes two days a week. I simply loved the workouts and the results.So when I moved home a few years ago, I was worried that I wouldn’t be able tofind a studio here in Rochester that had the same level of expertise. After tryingclasses at a few different places, I was thrilled to find a new Pilates home atEvolution Pilates. The positive, friendly and professional environment that Michellehas created trickles down through her talented and kind staff and ultimately to us,her clients. Every teacher has a deep knowledge of the body and of the Pilatespractice. Classes are fun, intimate and always accommodating to the level you areat. Perhaps my favorite things about this practice and studio are that I alwaysleave with a clearer head, less stress, a better mindbody connection andinvigorated to take on whatever is next in my day. I feel stronger, more flexible andhealthier mentally and physically. Evolution Pilates is the best studio in town!Thank you Michelle and staff for creating a welcoming and inspirational place topractice!” - Janine M.“As probably the oldest living client at Evolution Pilates, I feel strongly that I wouldnot be walking around as well as I am without having gone there for the past fewyears. “ - Elise D.“I walked into the Evolution Pilates Studio because I’d found my balance was off.... thinking that in 3 or 4 sessions I’d be back on the right track, I signed up. Thatwas just about 6 years ago!Students enter the studio with polite smiles, but leave 1 hour later with a lightness,a joy, a great feeling of release. Pilates can change your life! It changed mine!I feel like I have the body of a much younger person because I’m stretched outcorrectly andI’ve done all my weight work as well! The combination of repetition and fine, fineteaching and soon you’ll exit the studio feeling taller, graceful, strong, and so veryhealthy. And isn’t that all we really desire...to be healthy?Do yourself a favor and call Evolution Pilates and set up a time for a class or two.You’ll be forever grateful when you do. It changes your life in ways you cannotpredict if you stick with the classes. Thanks to everyone for making the studio feellike my home away from home! I hope to see you there.” - Catherine C.
