What Clients Say:

Ruthie frees me from the pain of my physical work!

I came to Ruth Drier while I was in a critical back pain and a chronic shoulder strain from years of over use. That was 9 months ago. Ruth has amazing ability to help me correct the alignment and ways I move in life daily, to free me from the pain I generally create from the type of physical work I do daily. It is such a joy to find myself enjoying other yoga classes again, as my Pilates PT time weekly with Ruth (one-one-one) has helped inform my Yoga Practice and other athletic adventures I can do again. I love the energy she brings to every weekly session. And that is why I keep coming back! It works wonders to my every day life.

I'm stronger and more toned!

I’ve worked with Ruth at A Room For Pilates for a little over a year. I had never done Pilates and wanted to be sure I was learning the techniques and equipment correctly. Ruth’s attention to technique and using the correct muscles while keeping me challenged is what has kept me going back. I am stronger and more toned while keeping the flexibility in my body for good balance and stability. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to keep agile, toned and healthy.
