I had never tried Pilates before I walked into Mongoose’s charming downtown studio, and it was the best introduction I could have hoped for. I’ve worked with several of the instructors now, and they are all excellent. Each one is observant and attentive and makes me feel at ease while giving me a great workout. With instructors this skilled, I would not consider going anywhere else for Pilates! The studio itself is the perfect size, with a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. I instantly felt at home, and the Soho location is so convenient – very close to several subway lines.
