I began Pilates training in 2002 with Eugenia. She ran a Saturday class that I took faithfully for many years. I was always disappointed if she wasn’t teaching on a specific Saturday, as were many of my friends in class. Eugenia helped us learn the basics of mat training and did so very gently. She was always very supportive. I’m by no means an athlete and really need corrections from an instructor - yet Eugenia corrected me constructively and sweetly, never making me feel inadequate. Her personality shines through her teaching and you’ll see she’s probably one of the nicest, most caring, helpful and understanding people around.
When Eugenia moved to St. Martin, I continued with two or three other teachers, none as good as Eugenia. Eventually, I stopped going to Pilates. I continued with weight training and in early 2014, I hurt my back during a session on the weight machines. As I was visiting my chiropractor/physical therapist, he suggested that I try Pilates - and he recommended Eugenia - I didn’t know that she had moved back to the area! I gave her a call and have done private sessions with her twice a week since. She’s more knowledgeable than ever. She is still warm, welcoming and makes each session new and different. I’m doing things I never thought I could because of her support. Many of the Pilates moves are a little scary in the beginning, but Eugenia works with me to reduce my fear and build confidence that I’m doing it right! My posture has improved incredibly and I definitely feel the benefits of continuous Pilates training.
One of the best decisions you will ever make is to work with Eugenia. I could go on and on about all of her wonderful qualities for pages, but trust me- you’ll be very happy if you are able to work with her.

I was very fortunate to have Eugenia as my first Pilates instructor in St. Martin. She focuses on form and technique, always encouraging correct alignment, posture and core strength. Over time I noticed the benefits: my body shape changed and the lower back pain that plagued me disappeared. I always looked forward to Eugenia's Pilates class. She is such a gem! Having lived in European countries, I can without doubt say that Eugenia remains my No. 1 instructor. I would go back to her class in a heartbeat.
