I was finally pleased to find a pilates studio offering reformer pilates at a reasonable price. After my free introductory lession (which was fine) I signed up for a level 1 class. When the day of my class came I saw that I was the only person scheduled to attend and so I called up that morning and asked specifically what their policy was and if the class would be cancelled. The person on the phone said that it would proceed as scheduled and made no mention of their policy that I would have to pay double if no one else showed up. I trekked 10 blocks in the rain to attend this class only to be told I would have to pay another 30$ if I wanted to have a private session.
When I explained how I specifically called this morning to find out about their policy I was met with a snooty attitude from the instructor and little in the way of apologies. Additionally, I learned that it is their policy that if you are the only one in the class you MUST show up and then if no one else shows up you have the option to take the class for double or leave. This is a terrible system.

I also left a message for the manager of the studio, Anne, to call and I am yet to hear from her.

All around terrible experience and I will not be back.

Pros: Price

Cons: Small space, rude staff, terrible customer service

.

This studio is a great value for the money. The web scheduler is convenient and allows you to see how many people are signed up for a specific class, thereby bypassing the negative experience of a previous poster concerning the 2-person minimum for holding a class. There are many rules here, but the great instructors, clean environment, nice equipment, and unbeatable price outweighs those considerations

Pros: Lowest price I've seen, long hours, many classes to choose from

Cons: Rules and regulations

.

I went in with passbook for an introductory class then a level 1 trial class. It was my first experience with pilates and having coordiation found instruction easy. The facility is clean and ventilated. I was one of 4 people. The female instructor, an owner noticed small details for correction and was not ample to chit chat or allow it in class which is fine by me. For convience of location it was great. \r
\r
PS- I will be rating other yoga studios in Manhattan so check my other reviews for comparison

Pros: good east side location, clean and ventilated, business minded

Cons: business minded, no shower or dressing room

.

I went for the first time with a ""trial"" coupon. I was the only person at the class. Prior to the class, I was not told about any rules regarding what happens if only one person signed up for the class and ended up paying twice as much for one class. The manager said at one point, they would reimburse me due to the misunderstanding, but then an hour later, called me to tell me that the owner refused to reimburse me. \r
\r
When I spoke with the owner, she yelled at me and told me that she was not in the business of giving out free classes just because there was obviously a miscommunication between myself and the staff members. She put me on speakerphone so ""everyone"" could hear what I had to say. After I said my peace, she picked up and said she understood that perhaps her staff should have explained things better but that she had already paid the instructor and my money went to paying for her. The owner had the gall to say that the money I paid ""should be used to pay for the rent and other bills"". \r
\r
Rather than trying to appease my dissatisfaction and the error on her staff's part, she said that she didn't care if I didn't refer her studio to others because she knows that she has the best prices in town and people would sign up for her classes because of that. then she essentially hung up on me. \r
\r
As great as the deal of $25 may be, definitely not worth the humiliation and bad treatment I received. I've been taking pilates for over 5 years now. YOU CAN DO BETTER. STAY AWAY! Also, 1) they charged me a surcharge that they were not suppose to charge. and 2) it's clear that while perhaps the instructors are good, the studio doesn't care about the clients or even the instructors but rather only making money.

Cons: Cramped rooms. Dangerous where the machines were only about a feet apart from other.

I love the classes here, once you start seeing results, it is addictive. This location is very nice, machines are new, the web scheduler is a fantastic and convenient feature. You can make sure days in advance that you are signed up for a class with your favorite instructor before it fills up. \r
\r
They give alot of individual attention in a class setting. This studio gets my vote.

One of the best deal in town. At $25 a class, I just can't find anything else cheaper (and better). Ann is truly amazing, she won't let you slack. I was never an atheltic person before pilates, and was never able to keep up with any other classes. But with this, after just a couple of weeks, I can see my body slowly changing, tightening up. The website scheduler also helped me alot. I would sign up days before, so I won't let myself get out of it no matter what the weather was. The only ""downer"" is that the changing room is very small, and only 2 of them.

Pros: effective, location, good teacher

Cons: small changing room

It's the one of the few places in the city that offers group reformer classes - most others are expensive private classes. Ann, the owner, is a very good teacher. She is tough but encouraging. The classes are small - unlike the huge yoga studios. Ann walks around and corrects your form.

I've been looking for a really good pilates class offering reformer techniques. And I finally found it with Reforming New York. For the price of what most people pay for mat classes-- $25, I have the use of a reformer in an attentive small class environment.

Ann is really amazing! She really cracks the whip and tries to make sure you are doing your exercises correctly both breathing and form. She's the best and I think I'm going to be addicted!

Pros: reformer classes, top level 1 teacher, small classes

Cons: , bathroom outside, need more hours

.

I always leave this class in a good mood. Kind of like when you get a facial or take vitamins - you know you just did something good for yourself. Anne is a fantastic instructor. She attentively watches over each student, making sure he/she is in proper form. Most pilates classes offer little more than a mat for group classes, at an average price of $15/class. Here you get your own machine! The package deals are a great bargain. Just don't try to get out of a cancellation fee for missing an AM class (reservation required). Further incentive to not sleep in on a Saturday morning.

I am a 50 year old woman and I was totally out of shape, but thanks to Anne, I am feeling fit and confident. Anne is a fantastic teacher, concise and patient. The studio has modern equipment and is very clean. Also, the classes are affordable and small. For the price to be able to use a machine is heaven. All I can say is, Thankyou Anne

work out 4 times a week- but feel like adding pilates has done wonders- legs and arms and abs have much more definition and strength. ann is a terrific instructor - really takes care that you learn the proper technique.

The classes are great, and the instructors are excellent. The group classes are unusual in that there is plenty of room, and despite the group atmosphere each member of the class receives individualized attention. I didn't know anything about Pilates and now am addicted!

Pros: Great instruction, Inexpensive, convenient

.

the classes are small enough that it feels like a one-on-one session everytime i've gone. both instructors are excellent and each one brings a different perspective to the excercises.
very economical for theatre professionals that can attend the day classes.
run, run run before they become too popular and you can't sign-up for any class you want!
