"I have been an actress and singer since 1965 and as such I have explored many physical disciplines in order to strengthen my body and keep it in good shape. Dance, yoga, jazzercise, stretch and strength, step classes, weight training and then finally body sculpting kept me physically busy for those fifty years. I have been having issues with chronic pain over the last few years, lower back pain and knee pain as well as back misalignment. I started taking Pilates with Veronica at her Surrey Pilates Studio 6 years ago and she has been instrumental in helping me correct the damage I inflicted with myself from some of those disciplines. Even in a middle-sized class, Veronica or one of her sons, Ryan or Erik, have given me specific ideas and directions to help me release tight musculature and protect that weak lower back. They are thoughtful and compassionate leaders who have taught me more about the body than all my years of study and "working out" have shown me. I am pain-free, and experience feeling stronger and more supple than ever, all due to beautiful Veronica and her magnificent sons. I heartily recommend the Surrey Pilates Studio."
