I’ve been going to Mongoose since 2001, and I love this place. The instructors are amazing. They are skilled, patient, and challenging. They have been trained to both teach you Pilates and to pay attention to what your body needs (even when you don’t know). Some of the benefits are well known: that you will be stronger and more flexible, standing taller and leaner. But there are other things, too, like those hunched shoulders will feel (and look) better, your fast-walking New York City legs and feet will walk faster and more healthily, and you will actually breathe property (at least while you are taking your class).
