I have loved Pilates at the studio for the last six years-Shelley and the other teachers are fabulous! I have gained strength and have more energy now than I did when I started six years ago. Each of the teachers give detailed instructions and excellent advice-each of the teachers are pilates experts and also create an atmosphere of warmth and enthusiasm among the students. I go twice a week and look forward to every session!

After six years with NW Core Balance, I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. All of the instructors are excellent and you get personalized attention, even in group classes. Shelley has invested in top-of-the line equipment, facilitating a great workout. Super all around!

I’ve been taking Pilates classes at NW Core Balance for about 3 years and every workout is different but always gratifying. I feel stronger, more flexible and accomplished with each workout. Not only are the workouts great, but Shelley and the other instructors and the equipment at the facility are top tier. Each instructor genuinely cares about you as an individual and your overall health and fitness goals. If you are curious about adding Pilates to your routine, I highly recommend NW Core Balance!

I started with NW Core Balance nine months ago. Shelley is an amazing instructor. Professional and knowledgeable; patient and encouraging. I had never tried reformer Pilates prior to NW Core Balance, but now I hate to miss a class because I enjoy it so much. It is amazing how much better shape I am in than when I started. I am both strong and flexible. And after taking a few classes elsewhere while I was on vacation, I have come to appreciate how special the studio really is. The equipment is top notch and the studio space is always clean and comfortable. I feel fortunate to have found this studio when I did.
