In 2010 I was introduced to Pilates for the first time. I fell in Love! it is the most glorious workout. My body feels limber and flexible and strong. It is a workout that feels like a 'funout'. Each time I learn something new. The equipment is top notch. And the instructor and owner, Arlene Salomon, is a dream come true. Her energy is infectious, and she is CONSTANTLY learning more, taking more lessons and getting to be even more fabulous than she already is! She is SO good at explaining things. Arlene is hands-on. She can demonstrate, then do physical assists and can talk you through an exercise and can visually show you what she wants with her hand motions. Everytime I go, I walk out like I'm on cloud 9. I highly recommend checking it out if you spend anytime on Maui. She is just amazing.
What I like about Arlene is her positive outlook, her deep understanding and knowledge of Pilates. I also see how much she trusts and believes in what she is teaching - she loves Pilates and she has such a hands-on approach to teaching. I have to say that I have never felt stronger. She understood my issues and was extremely diligent in her approach to my program and my progression. She encouraged me every step of the way.

I am a classically trained Pilates instructor since 2002. I recently went and had some sessions with Arlene. I was hoping to get some tips and a feel for what her mentor and first generation teacher, Jay Grime's, "Vintage Pilates" work is all about. I got all I went for and more. Arlene showed me "little big" things that will help me get my strong body stronger. and "continuing ed" for me to bring home to my Pilates studio in Prescott AZ. Arlene's a fabulous trainer. Can't wait to go back.
