"Devika is a thoughtful, knowledgeable and conscientious teacher – something I really valued as she helped me with pilates through my second pregnancy. She has a calming presence that made me feel relaxed during challenging workouts. I highly recommend her." - Ginny W.
"I started with Devika as a total newcomer to Pilates. Working with her has been incredible. I never thought I would capable of doing this kind of stuff. Devika continues to help me push myself and even work through some long standing imbalances in body I had just learned to live with. Her patience, knowledge, and attention to detail are evident in everything she does. She is a pleasure to work with and be around. I leave each session with her happier, healthier and standing up straighter." -Brooke L.
"Devika was a godsend to me at a time when I needed tremendous support and guidance. I studied Pilates with her in the final years of my career with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. I was having a lot of difficulty with reoccurring injuries, chronic pain and just being overworked and she was a grounding presence throughout. Our work provided me with fine tuned exercises that enlightened me about my body. As a naturally "strong" person it was eye opening to become stronger at a core level, yet I felt like I could approach the rigor of my work with a newfound softness in my joints and bones. I would bring specific movement from the repertory that was giving me trouble and Devika would base our sessions on it to find breakthroughs and ease. I am also thankful for Devika's spirit and encouragement. I often times felt panicked that I wouldn't be able to continue. Our sessions together became a place where I could refuel both physically and mentally. I am teaching more than I am dancing now, but even so I still pull from what Devika shared with me to support my body while being on my feet all day." -Andrea W
"Devika is one of the best teachers I have ever had, in any capacity, and I am a college professor. She has helped me out of serious illness through careful, rigorous and individuated instruction. She's insightful and a superb guide." - Sarah S
"Devika's right on the pulse of what I’m capable of, and in a supportive but challenging way she guides me toward new strengths and possibilities." - Doug M.
