 Students’ and Care-givers’ Testimonials:

“Olivia knows her stuff, and being trained in Pilates with her is like having someone unlock the combination to your body.” ~~Rahti Gorfien, Brooklyn, NY

“Circus/Acrobatics class is one of the best activities my daughter has tried– and she has tried a lot!  She LOVES this class!  Olivia is brilliant with the kids.  Her humor and skill make her a great teacher.” ~~ A.E., Santa Cruz parent

“Your passion was a very positive point for the children.”~~R.A., 1st Grade teacher after a 10-week residency program.

“I keep telling everybody about how much I benefitted from your training – I wish we’d still have you here in Boulder.”~~Sebastian Schmidt Boulder, CO

“I have had scoliosis since I was 12 years old and working with Olivia was the first time I felt the heart of the matter was being dealt with…through our sessions (which were complete workouts) my body learned to FEEL the required balance and new ways I COULD be moving instead of the old way of “holding” muscles that were overworked as they compensated for other muscles…She catches me when I cheat by even the slightest move. It is wonderful to feel that the person helping you grow in strength, and realign your body, is so perceptive that she catches everything…above all, everything is based on play and gentleness; Olivia is the most effective and gifted personal trainer I have ever worked with.”  ~~Sofia Franciscus Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines
