I have been a Pilates student with Deborah Soules of NY Pilates for over a year. Deborah has been a Pilates instructor for over 19 years and does a great job of customizing the workout to fit each client'side specific needs. I have found that Pilates has really helped my golf game as I it has helped me to be more flexible and has helped to improve my balance. I have also increased my core strength and improved my hip and pelvic stabilization, which has contributed to a more consistent golf swing.
My overall health and lifestyle has changed for the better since I started taking Pilates with Deborah at NY Pilates. Deborah is a fantastic instructor with a real knowledge of the classical form-fitting the exercises as developed by Joseph Pilates, has a great knowledge of anatomy and knows just how to help each person achieve their goals.
In fact, she has also designed and taught me how to do some work at home to keep me improving between my Pilates training sessions and designed some specific warm-up exercises before I play golf. These work great and I believe have improved my golf game a good deal.

"I took Pilates [mat] classes at a local gym for over three years. Given that I am 65+ years old, the classes began to put too much stress on my muscles and joints. Thankfully, I discovered Deborah Soules at NY Pilates. Deborah trains clients on the Pilates Reformer. I am amazed at the impact that both Deborah and the Reformer had on the shape of my body. Within less than 3 months, my posture improved, my strength and flexibility increased, and my muscles looked leaner and longer. Deborah was the first person to focus on an often-ignored part of the body - the feet. I was pleasantly surprised when my feet and ankles gained flexibility. This new awareness of the need to exercise my feet and ankles lead to an improved sense of balance.
The physical changes were just a part of my experience with Deborah as my trainer. I also noticed an increase in my self-confidence. With my increased strength and flexibility came a trust in myself that I was doing everything that I could to maximize my experience of aging well.
I highly recommend Deborah as a Pilates instructor. She is knowledgeable about the body and the Pilates method. Deborah listens to and respects her client's goals. Her professionalism engenders trust and confidence in her ability to help you achieve your goals. Thank you Deborah." Jo A. 2014
"I would strongly recommend Deb to anyone who is interested in Pilates and the Reformer. She has a wealth of experience and is very knowledgeable in body mechanics, stretching and Pilates. She is also very easy to work with and is very cognizant of her client's abilities and ultimate fitness goals. She knows what she is doing and you will get results" Victor C., 2010 - present.
"Deborah introduced me to Pilates in New York City where we worked together for four years. I cannot say enough good about the benefits that resulted from her work. Deborah helped me physically and mentally. She focused on my posture which needed work. In just a few sessions with Deborah, my body changed in a positive way and I became more focused. Deborah really knows the human body and how to work it and improve it." Sue R., Former Editor for Time Magazine, New York, NY 2006
"For five years Deborah was my Pilates instructor and a fantastic one at that. She is smart, caring, and very committed to her work in Pilates". Carol R., Formerly National Board of Review, New York, NY 2006
"Deborah has been working with me for a few months now and it's amazing how mush stronger and better I feel in such a short time. She is an excellent trainer now I am so much motivated to make my sessions with her because no matter how tired I am I always feel so much better after one of our sessions. She is awesome!!!"
