I began Pilates with Sonya Monk in January of 2010, two months after breaking both of my humerus (arm) bones near the shoulder in an accident. In my unique situation, Sonya helped me to form and work on my initial goal of moving my shoulders (no matter how little) at each session. Even though I was weak from the accident, she directed me in core and whole body work allowing me over time to recover mobility and range of motion. Today I continue working at Pilates with Sonya, working on arm, leg, and core strength, balance and mobility. Sonya employs a professional manner, encouraging her clients in proper form, using her exceptional knowledge of Pilates techniques and principles to instruct us. I leave each session feeling refreshed; happily knowing I had a good workout.
