I couldn't have asked for a nicer teacher. The first 15 minutes Shannon helped me get my Skype working right when I thought it was. I liked the patience she had trying to figure out my problem with Skype so I'm sure she will be the same after hearing more of the off tune sax I have :). Thanks Shannon!

Charly W.

New York, NY

I'm a professional dancer and choreographer and I have trained in a variety of dance techniques since the age of six. Throughout my dance career I have become aware of the importance of cross-training for optimal conditioning of the body, which is a key in injury prevention. In addition to my dance training I have practiced Yoga, Zena Rommett Floor-Barre Technique, Feldenkrais, Pilates, Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis. I have also explored Qi Gong, Tai Chi and Alexander Technique.

I have more than seven years of experience as a Private Fitness Consultant, customizing my workout to the specific needs, goals and abilities of each individual client. I have taught group classes at The Ailey School, Dance New Amsterdam and Empire Fitness Advantage.

I'm a certified Stott Pilates instructor.

About the class:

Pilates Fitness Fusion is a 60 minute body conditioning class that includes elements of Pilates, Yoga and other strengthening and stretching techniques. It is a well-rounded and ...

So excited to work with someone who is willing to help me get better while understanding my limitations and without judging me. It was one of the best exercise experiences I have ever had!

Charly is the best!

After giving birth to two children, it is not easy to get back in shape and I honestly think, that it would have not been possible if it weren't for Charly.

She is very sensitive to the health issues one faces and knows exactly what to do and what not to do. At the same time she gently pushes you enough to actually make the big difference. I am now back to the way I was before having the kids - just that now I am even little stronger.

But it is not just the strength and shape of your body, but Charly will also help you adjust for any imbalances in your body.

I was very sad when I moved from Brooklyn and was not able to take her class anymore, but I am still doing a lot from our routine, that helps me stay fit.

She is wonderful!

I started Pilates with Charly about half a year ago. Charly is a patient teacher and explains in detail how to perform each movement. I have learnt so much about proper body alignment and how to execute each exercise with proper form. Charly’s attention to detail makes all the difference! I feel extremely confident training with Charly and have recommended her to my friends and family.

I left an earlier review for Josh, but Lance has taken further lessons with him, and our experience with him has only improved. Josh really understands the mind of a child, and he does a great job of talking to them, instead of at them. I really cannot stress how great he is with kids. If you are considering signing your child up for lessons with Josh, feel confident that he will provide a fantastic experience for them, and you will be very happy with the results.

This is catered toward you. Want to have flatter abs? Try power abs or core conditioning. Want to have more defined arms or legs? Try Tabata , pilates or a mix of both. Whatever your goals are, let's get there together.
