What Our Clients Are Saying "There are a lot of people I could go to for Pilates, but Marilyn [at Pilates On Hudson] is the one I trust with my issues" -Liz M., Club Fit PT
"I first went to Marilyn [at Pilates on Hudson] for help in recovering from an injury - my orthopedist suggested that Pilates would be a good follow-up to physical therapy. That was 4 years ago and despite having recovered FULLY, I have become more fit and can honestly say I am in the best shape I have ever been in." Anne C. "My brain is SO involved in this - Marilyn's training is both CEREBRAL and VISCERAL" - A. King
