been taking group exercise classes for years- everything from
Bikram Yoga to Cardio-Trampoline to Barre - in San Francisco
and New York City. I can honestly say that my Pilates classes
with Ines have been the most effective classes I've had for
my back health and general fitness. Ines is the kind of teacher
who gently nudges a student to the next level. Every class with
her is different, never the same 60 minute sequence twice. With
Pilates, a small adjustment in a pose can make all the difference
- Ines is talented at immediately seeing how to improve a student's
experience. My classes with Ines in the past 2 years have included
men and women of all different levels. She's not only great
at helping every participant work at their own level - her style
is kind and warm. Pilates with Ines is one of my favorite things

"I have been a student of Ines' Pilates class for three years,
and it is very obvious she is a highly trained, professional
instructor of Pilates. She has a superior and advanced understanding
of the body and human movement. Her Pilates class offers a healthy
and safe variety of Pilates-based exercises for the novice beginner,
intermediate, and advanced students. I can personally attest
to her strong desire and ability, to teach and assist her students
in safely reaching their core fitness goals. She has helped
and inspired me tremendously with my core strength, posture,
and overall physical fitness. Ines is a very inspiring instructor,
a role model for fitness, and a warm and wonderful person.“

I attended Pilates classes with Ines twice weekly for two years
whilst living in Seoul. I’d never done Pilates before and I
found Ines a patient and professional teacher. I loved the variety
as no two classes are ever the same and she manages to teach
to all levels of ability in each class. My posture improved
and Ines worked with me to strengthen my core. At the end of
each class I feel relaxed and focused and ready to face each
finished nearly three years of Pilates classes with Ines! I
always looked forward to the sessions, struggled through some
of the exercises, but felt great afterwards. Being 67 years
old, I know that all the stretching and strengthening is so
important for my body. I will really miss Ines's classes and
wish she had a DVD or two so I could continue following her
fantastic lessons! I highly recommend her classes! Thank you
never taken a pilates class before taking Ines's class for the
first time at age 33. I'm not particularly flexible but I thought
I was strong (I'd done soccer, weightlifting, bootcamp & CrossFit
up until that time); however, pilates showed me just how weak
my core was! By going regularly twice a week over several months,
I really noticed a difference in my core strength and posture.
I'm much more aware of how I sit and stand now. Ines carefully
observes how you're doing in every class and offers corrections
and ways to scale each exercise to make it easier or more difficult
depending on your level. She knows just when to challenge you
so that she brings out the best in you. She brings props to
some classes to mix things up, and her positive encouragement
and smiles make her classes feel warm and welcoming. Thanks
to Ines, I'm now in love with pilates, and I honestly look forward
to every class of hers! :)

loved Ines’ pilates class. The workout is smooth yet so efficient.
Ines is always mindful of our needs and suggests alternative
moves if necessary. I definitely recommend her classes and I
wish I could find an instructor this good back home. Thank you
didn't know anything about pilates when I started 10 months
ago. I think I just wanted to strengthen my core muscle and
grow flexibility. For me, a flex muscle means a strong muscle.
What I have learned from you is how to be aware of your body
through proper posture. Once you are aware of body symmetry,
it taught me how to move on a daily basis; I would sit more
straight at computer and stand taller when I brush my teeth.
I also like the fact that you never repeated the same routine
in the class. Time always passed by fast.
you again. Stephanie
very much enjoyed participating in Ines’ pilates class. Although
I was one of several students, Ines paid attention to and gently
corrected each student’s position. She made class very fun,
and I can’t wait to attend her classes again (after I give birth)!”

you for being such a good Pilates Teacher through out the semester
I have attended your class. Thank you for your warm and professional
approach to everyone in your classroom. I'm more than happy
to recommend you as a Pilates Teacher. I wish you all the best!

It was a very happy surprise for me that I could meet you and
had an honor to join your Pilates lessons during my stay in
Seoul. I love to jog, but I used to have problems around my
thigh especially in winter due to weak and stiff core muscles.
However, in spite of having such a cold and long winter in Seoul,
thank for your Pilates sessions, I've never had that pain again.
I believe that your session was not only effective physically,
but also so much enjoyable mentally. You and your lessons are

living in Seoul, I participated in the Pilates class offered
by Ines. Not only is she an excellent Pilates instructor, she
is a licensed physical therapist, which was very important to
me since I had issues with my knee. She is very flexible and
could adapt to injuries and different capabilities. Her calm
manner and precise explanations made it easy to understand and
perform the different moves. I highly recommend her!

I have thoroughly enjoyed Ines’ Pilates classes. She has a great
teaching style that makes it both enjoyable and informative.
Her sessions are suitable for any age, as well as any level
of ability. Her modified versions of certain moves that were
beyond my physical limitations not only enabled me to move smoothly
through each class, but they actually improved my impairment.
I will sorely miss Ines and her expertise! Best,

Hallo Ines, ..... Wir werden unsere Stunden mit dir vermissen.
Das war der einzige Sport, der mir Spass gemacht hat. Hoffe,
es wird mit Sawano auch gut weitergehen. Alles Gute weiterhin
und ich wuensche dir, dass du bald wieder eine so nette Gruppe
unterrichten darfst, wie wir das waren:)

belongs to me to thank you a lot for your professionalism and
your kindness. I appreciated a lot your aqua fitness classes
and doubtless more still your Pilate classes. As I said to you
last Monday, I discovered Pilate with you and it was a revelation
to me. I love this sport. I cannot do without any more.

luck lovely lady. We will miss you. I am sure Sawano will be
great but doubt I will have another pilates instructor as good
as you. I have never been good at committing to regular exercise
but I truly loved your classes.Good luck and have lots of fun
on your next adventure.
