    Bonnie have a great 2014, My sciatica has never come back since you showed me those exercises.

    Bonnie is my cousin, and believe me, she is the real thing. I had sciatica and Bonnie showed me the exercises to do. I did the assigned exercises for one month and my sciatica has never come back. That was over 5 years ago. Bonnie is someone I recommend for your muscle and nerve leg ailments. Bonnie is sincere and only wants to see you get results.

    Bonnie helped me after i had my 2nd child. I was out of shape, my knees hurt and i was overweight!! I didn't think I would ever be able to be athletic!!! We started with basic pilates and gradually moved forward. She is a master at being able to read people and train them within their capabilities and then beyond. Bonnie has a very positive, caring method to motivate you unlike other trainers who can actually cause injuries!!! Thanks to her, I have been able to run in the Camp Pendelton Mud Run, play water polo, swim, bike, run in the L A Triathalon and I continue to enjoy many biking events!!! She instills a healthy lifestyle and a positve outlook on life She is truly gifted!

    after years of intense cycling and gym training, I took up Pilates with Ms Sessions I feel better now than I did when I was much younger. No secret as we age we loose flexibility, under Bonnie's Guidance my body now has greater range of motion than it did 20 years ago, her world wide training has given her an understanding of the body most trainers don't begin to understand, Bonnie has taken training to another level. she has produced unbelievable results for me and given me a higher quality of life. I highly recommend her. she is a first class act. be prepared for change tho.

    Bonnie is the most knowledgeable, inspiring, positive, confidence-building Pilates instructors you'd ever want to meet. She's truly a master Pilates teacher. She trains Pilates instructors world wide. If you work with her, as I have for 7 years, you will get fit! You can't ask for a nicer, friendlier person than Bonnie. She's one in a million!
