WHAT I DO
Mermaid Pilates is a hidden gem in the heart of Morris Plains. As a beginner, I wanted to improve core strength and flexibility but did not have the confidence (or desire) to join a large studio with lots of activity and commotion. Luckily, I found Mermaid Pilates and it’s been a game changer. Amanda Kraft (owner) has created a calm, intimate environment that’s perfect for learning. Students at any level will find her technical proficiency, passion and results-oriented approach beneficial and rewarding. After only 3 months, I have noticed functional changes in strength and flexibility. As a bonus, my body is beginning to feel longer and leaner and my body image has improved dramatically. I love my sessions and can’t wait to see more change!
As a weekend golfer I need a strong core and lower back. However, I have osteoarthritis in both knees so I can't do activities that stress the knees. I heard about the benefits of Pilates so I went to a class. Amanda was our teacher and I was immediately put at ease by her command of the exercises and her patience to make sure each of us was doing the work properly. I started taking private lessons at the studio and I am guided through an exercise routine that is tailored to my physical issues. Through guidance and direction I have noticeably improved on my core strength, balance and overall flexibility.
I've tried THIRTY different yoga/pilates studios in the area since moving here a year ago. (Oy vey!) So when I tell you that the instruction at Mermaid Pilates is the best of the best, I'm speaking from experience. Amanda's teaching style is very hands-on (no cheating under her watchful gaze!). So not only are you essentially getting a mini private in a group setting, you're building healthy alignment which is yours to keep even when you're off the mat. Here's to more sweaty Saturdays!
