"I have been going to Devra now for over 5 years and I have never felt or looked better! I have always worked out but needed something different for those hard to tame areas and Pilates was just waht my body needed. After going through several different Pilates Instructors, I thankfully found Devra and Absolutely Pilates. She is amazing and really knows her stuff! I now proudly wear my tank tops and skinny jeans again and it is so neat to have friends tell me how great I look! "

"I started with once a week and then went to twice a week. I have been recovering from a herniated disc in my lower back. I am feeling more toned as a result of the pilates and able to walk more miles now. Devra works with me to help improve my flexibility and mobility. I plan to continue with Devra so I make more progress with my flexibility."

"My husband and I have been taking pilates classes twice a week with Devra for almost two years now. Our coordination, flexibility and core strength have improved tremendously over this time. We have also found the classes to be a great way to relieve the daily stress of work!"

"I've been training with Devra for about two years and have seen a remarkable transformation in my body. I've gone down four dress sizes, my muscle tone has increased, and I feel great. Pilates is a perfect work out to incorporate with your cardio program. I used to go twice a week and have added a third day for the past year. Devra is an excellent instructor. She is detail oriented, always having you go through each exercise in a precise manner. She makes it fun as well. Her work out environment is excellent being very private and well equipped. I highly recommend utilizing Devra's work out at Absolutely Pilates."

-Dawn Roda, Huntington Beach, CA.
"I can't believe the difference. I remember walking outside and saying to myself..."what is missing?" and it was the pain. I've had lower hip/back problems and with the persistence in targeting that area and making it stronger, I feel like a new person."

"I started Pilates with Devra In January 2005. Since then I have seen visible changes and feel better and stronger. Pilates is an intense workout that complements other forms of exercise of all types. I recommend it highly!"

"My golf driving distance was being reduced due to lack of flexibility and I was starting to experience some knee pain. After starting pilates with Devra I was able to outdrive my golfing partners who are several years younger and my knee strength has improved. Devra's pilates training greatly improved my flexibility as well as strength. I recommend her style of teaching and am pleased with the results I received."

"Devra is one of the most effective Pilates teachers. She motivates without being an exercise Nazi and she does it all with a sense of humor. My body is more toned now than ever before. As a woman who will turn 50 soon, I am glad that I have found Devra as a Pilates teacher and a friend."
