“I work on my feet all day and suffer with my back & shoulders, Marlene pinpointed the troubled areas by just looking at my stance. Would highly recommend a visit to this beautiful studio. I felt relief in the space of an hour & now a repeat client. Marlene is amazing and keeps you motivated throughout!”

“Marlene has helped me pinpoint and strengthen the weak parts of my body and I am no longer in pain. I remember the first session she quickly spotted I was hyper mobile in my joints and still to this day catches me if I’m doing the exercises incorrectly. She is very caring and attentive. The studio is spotless and beautiful.

–Dina T

“Among many exercises I tried, I have found Pilates the most effective for building core strength and awareness about involved muscles. It has helped me correct my posture, build strength in key muscles that are typically neglected at gym, and reduce pressure in my lower back disks.”

–Sina G

“Marlene is a truly committed and enthusiastic instructor. I have always been apprehensive about body work such as pilates due to an extensive spinal fusion from scoliosis surgery, plus neurological difficulties, but Marlene does extensive homework to help her clients as best as she can. I have been taking regular private classes with her for a couple of months now and plan on continuing for as long as I can!”

–Mayah P

“Reform Pilates is a great studio in a convenient location (just a couple blocks away from Waterfront Station, in Gastown). Marlene is a Pilates instructor’s Pilates instructor. I know, as it’s my profession as well and Marlene is one of the few instructors in this city that I choose to go to in order to deepen my own embodiment of Pilates.”

–Oliver G
