look better in 20 sessions and have a completely new body in 30 sessions.”

I have Fibromyalgia and special issues with my knees. Stefani's years as a dancer with the Kansas City Ballet have given her expert knowledge of the human body, and she is a top-notch Pilates teacher. She also has the perfect combination of optimism and encouragement required to help people get in shape and improve their quality of life. After a year of working with her on a weekly basis, I have greater strength and stamina than I have had for many years.  My pain and fatigue are also greatly reduced. I never thought I would look forward to exercise, but now I do!
