FIT

TANDY GRAVES

I have been seeing Ivy at EW for Pilates for 6 years and it has been a perfect fit for me. EW Pilates truly values wellness and being good stewards of our bodies. Ivy’s emphasis on conditioning, alignment, strength, flexibility and recovery has been of tremendous benefit to me. The EW Pilates sessions are also a learning experience; I have developed an understanding of the inter connections between muscles and joints and how important it is to correct bad postural habits. The attention to detail, continual slight corrections/adjustments and individual focus (even when in a group of four) that I receive gives me confidence that I am getting the maximum benefit of the exercises with a minimal risk of injury. My goal is to be well and strong and Pilates with Ivy is a top priority in my weekly schedule!

ELLEN BRUCK

I have been an EW physical therapy and Pilates client for about a year and a half. The EW staff works with a sense of purpose and as a team with a goal of improving the function of their clients and patients. I have worked with Katherine and Kareth for PT and Kathy in Pilates and couldn’t be happier with my experience. They are extremely competent, caring and always positive—top of the line!

Retired

CHRISTINA STAUDHAMMER

Pilates is simply the best thing that I have discovered for injury prevention. I have been working with Angel at EW Tuscaloosa for Pilates for over two years. As a distance runner, I have been prone to injuries over the years, however, since I started Pilates at EW, I have reduced my injury incidence dramatically. I have found that I have been able to address strength, flexibility and balance all at one time while improving my body awareness and alignment. Angel is an incredible instructor and has a unique ability to communicate technique and get the most out of every exercise! About a year and a half ago, I faced a life-threatening situation when I had a carotid artery dissection. I wanted to continue to exercise during the long recovery and Angel worked with me to maintain my fitness. When I resumed running after 6 months, I did so injury free. Thank you EW for being here and thank you Angel!
