I have been going to Chaele’s studio for several months now and I am hooked.  Chaele has exposed me to Pilates on an entirely different level from what I had previously known.  First of all it’s a hard workout!  I regularly break out into a sweat which was not my experience in the past.  And I felt immediate results – but instead of feeling sore and unable to walk after other types of exercise,  I feel stretched and toned.  Each workout with Chaele is different and I look forward to every session.  Chaele has done wonders for my body and her lovely perspective on all things gives me a boost for the rest of the day!

The Pilates experience has been fantastic with Chaele Cooper. I was apprehensive at first but have seen great benefits in both flexibility and core strength. Chaele is a dedicated professional, challenges you to your own limits and yet is mindful and tolerant about an individual's limitations. She is a delight to work with and has made the Pilates fitness experience fun as well as productive.

Chaele is an exceptional Pilates instructor and I always look forward to our sessions.  She is both extremely professional and truly compassionate about her work and her clients.  I feel challenged with each session but always have lots of fun as well.  When I started working with Chaele over a year ago, I had not been to the gym in a very long time.  She has kept me motivated to stick with it – and makes exercising something to look forward to rather than a chore.  I can actually see how my body has changed and continues to do so through our work together.  I am stronger, more flexible, and my clothes fit differently which other people have also noticed!  In short, Chaele is amazing!

The Pilates training I have done with Chaele over the past year and a half has completely revised the look as well as the performance of my body.  I now have a defined waist and muscle tone in my legs, which despite years of endurance training for marathons and triathlons eluded me.  Chaele’s emphasis on athleticism, precision and body awareness has helped me develop core strength that has made me a better skier, runner and swimmer.  Chaele works wellness, nutrition and stress management into the experience and she is a genuinely great person to pass the work out time with.  She truly loves what she does and that translates into her work.

I have been taking private Pilates classes with Chaele for almost two years now and it continues to be one of the best experiences for me physically and mentally.  Chaele is a wonderful instructor.  She combines her skill, knowledge and compassion to provide a total work out experience.  I recently had knee replacement surgery and my fast recovery can only be attributed to all the Pilates training that preceded the surgery.  I appreciate my sessions with Chaele, especially after a hectic and stressful day at work.  My husband now has started to take lessons with Chaele and I have recommended her to friends.  I feel lucky to have met Chaele.

I was fortunate to find Chaele when I moved to San Francisco and my one on one sessions with her are an essential area of consistency in an inconsistent life.  She brings a bespoke and balanced approach to teaching Pilates, and is an incredibly inspiring and dedicated teacher.  I'd be lost without her.
