"In 2006 I had a bone density scan that revealed I had osteoporosis of the spine. Because of the side effects, I was unable to take any of the medications prescribed by my doctor. Late in 2006 I started taking classes at Novato Pilates 2-3 times per week. I recently had another scan done (December of 2009) and amazingly the results show that my spine bone density is back to within the normal range. This after only 2 years of Pilates!! Not only do I look and feel better, Pilates has improved my body from the inside out, all without medication or supplements. I can't think of a better investment in my health than Pilates or a better environment to accomplish that goal than at Novato Pilates."

"My introduction to Pilates has been wonderfully positive!  As a novice, I found Kathy Lou's attention to technique very valuable.  Kathy Lou is a warm, caring, knowledgeable professional whose personalized instruction makes me feel
as if I'm her only client.  I highly recommend Kathy Lou and her staff to all who are interested in Pilates.

"Having suffered from lower back pain as well as neck pain this past summer, doctors put me on two packages of steroids as well as heavy pain medication. Nothing helped.  Simultaneously, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, went
through a surgery for it along with 31 radiation treatments.  Novato Pilates  was instrumental in helping me no longer suffer ANY further back or neck pain and made me both mentally as well as physically strong throughout my radiation
treatments.  My golf game has also improved!  To date, I look forward to my Pilates sessions three times a week and plan on continuing them into the future. Pilates not only improves your physical strength but your mental strength as
well.  I leave every Pilates session feeling energized and healthy, now free of pain.  I would recommend Novato Pilates to anyone wanting better health, overall strength and more energy.  Thank you Kathy Lou!!

"I have been doing Pilates for a year and a half now and the change in my body is amazing.  I am a nurse and am required to be on my feet a lot and I’ve noticed since I’ve
been doing Pilates I am stronger and more fit which allows me to avoid injuries and take better care of my patients.  I recommend to my patients to help in their recoveries to take
up Pilates as it is rehabilitative and a wonderful stress reliever.
