Samantha is a highly skilled and very intuitive instructor.  I came to her with chronic joint pain and a case of “frozen shoulder.”  I’d never worked with a trainer before, but she made me feel comfortable right away, understood exactly what I was experiencing, asked really good questions, and was able to quickly focus on the areas that needed attention.  She seems to have a solid plan for every session, but is also very flexible in attuning herself to one’s abilities and limitations.  As someone who works with learning disabled adults, I can see that she has a clear vision of what can be achieved to bring someone to a higher level of function.  I have no hesitation in commending Samantha as an excellent pilates instructor.
