amazing and personalized pilates

I had never done Pilates on any sort of equiptment before. I have been to the group class (if it can even be called this as it only has max 4 people) many times and Clare made me feel completely comfortable. She was consistently patient with me and my lack of knowledge/flexibility. She customized every single person's workout! Her personality is super positive and her knowledge of the human body is top knotch. I have recommended most of my coworkers try it!

Finally, some ""me"" time

I recently started going to Mongoose Bodyworks in Soho. I live on Long Island, and I work (too many hours) in the city. I need a chiropractor and a massage everyday!
For me, pilates is the perfect combination. It's a great stretch, a muscle relaxer, and a work out all in one. It's my time to focus on myself.
The instructors at Mongoose are great. They are all professional pilates trainers and they tailor the private workouts to your individual level.
I feel very comfortable here, and I would recommend
Mongoose to anyone who is looking to re-connect with their body. Cheers!

Welcoming to newbies

I had never tried Pilates before I walked into Mongoose's charming downtown studio, and it was the best introduction I could have hoped for. I've worked with several of the instructors now, and they are all excellent. Each one is observant and attentive and makes me feel at ease while giving me a great workout. With instructors this skilled, I would not consider going anywhere else for Pilates!

The studio itself is the perfect size, with a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. I instantly felt at home, and the soho location is so convenient - very close to several subway lines.

Fantastic pilates studio in Soho

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 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, 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 properly (at least while you are taking your class).

Best Pilates!!!

I am yoga instructor and trek all over the city for the best instructors and classes of yoga and pilates. I just started getting into Pilates and Halle could not have been a better teacher. Not only is the studio clean, spacious and quiet - but it is right in the heart of SoHo, so it is in a great neighborhood. I had so much fun in her classes and learned so much as well. Halle is patient, sweet, smart and very informative. Can't wait to go back soon!

New York City's best Pilates Studio

I have been to a handful of Pilates studios in Soho, and Mongoose Bodyworks is really the best. Their Pilates instructors have lots of experience and a full range of knowledge about the body. I have never been happier with my Pilates instruction.

Completely Healed

A shoulder injury rendered my right arm useless in many positions. Surgery was recommended. I found a Pilates Studio in Soho, NYC, which features a staff of excellent Pilates Instructors. They were able to diagnose the injury with precision and suggested a series of exercises to strengthen the surrounding muscles. The exercises were done both in and outside the Pilates Studio.

My arm is now completely healed without any invasive procedures. I strongly recommend this secret in Soho.

Wonderful Pilates Sessions

Mongoose Bodyworks is a wonderful place for pilates sessions, classes, or private instruction. Halle is one of the most experienced instructors that I have come across, and that makes a huge difference! The decor is lovely and relaxing as well.
It's a great excuse to go to that neigborhood too. Kate's Paperie and Balthazar are just around the corner. Oh and check out the Taschen bookstore on Greene.

Excellent teachers

I have been doing pilates at Mongoose for 6 years. The teachers here are excellent, highly trained and tailor make sessions according to the client's needs. Some are also trained as physical therapists. With regular pilates at Mongoose I know that back problems will not recur. Post recent surgery, these classes have helped me to regain strenght, fitness and alignement.

Five-Star Pilates Sessions

I started going to Mongoose Bodyworks more than a decade ago because of a severe back problem, never imagining that these exercise sessions would become an integral part of my life. Week after week, Halle -- my talented instructor -- has helped me to strengthen my body so that I stand taller, walk straighter, and have the resilience of someone half my age. Anyone interested in finding an excellent Pilates studio downtown should consider Mongoose.

Focused, conscious & patient instruction

After suffering years of severe neck pain that my chiropractor said was irreversible, he sent me to Mongoose Body Works. I learned how to do precicely focused stretches & exercises to retrain how I moved my neck & the rest of my body. Halle (my instructor ) pays scrupulous attention to every body movement detail every minute of my session. My neck pain is history. These sessions have given me an awareness of how I use my body & helped me get stronger. I wish I had found them years ago.

Thoughtful Challenging sessions

Exercising can be so boring. At Mongoose I have never had the same session in six years. I also had a problem with curvature of the spine and with specific exercises am much improved.
It's a treat to go there!

great studio with a personal touch

i've been a client since 2000 and would not consider taking pilates at any other studio. the atmosphere is pleasant and relaxing and the instructors are well-trained and provide lots of personal attention. the pilates classes i've taken there have kept me in top-notch shape and even helped me recover from surgery! i have recommended the studio to several friends and all have been satisfied. -linda l.

An Oasis in Soho

Three years ago my chiropractor said, I can't do any more for you. You will have to see my pilates lady. I scoffed at him. Pilates,I said , is a fad, and did nothing but my injury did not heal. So I gave in.

I went to my first session, it was great and I have been there ever since.

What a great place!

I used to make fun of my girlfriend for going to pilates classes...until she convinced me go to Mongoose. Now I'm sold. I woke up refreshed the next day, and felt as though I got a full gym workout, in the comfort of a pilates studio. The price is right and the experience was fantastic.

Superb understanding of body, imaging, alignment.

The person who owns this establishment is skilled not only in Pilates but many other forms of working with and on the body. She basically cured me from terrible pain, and enabled me - a dancer who did NOT want to take invasive action - to avoid an operation. Most of all, I feel GREAT after each session, and my body at 61 gets better! Couldn't recommend them more highly.

I feel fabulous!

I have started to work out at Mongoose Bodyworks and I have to say I have never felt better. I have excellent posture (noted by many) and I feel so strong and secure. After a few weeks of taking private classes 3 times per week I saw changes that were subtle at first then completely mind blowing! My clothes fit better and I have a lot more energy. Call them today and make an appointment. You will not regret it!
