  • Bendable Body Testimonial - Arianna Rosenberg

    “I was having severe back spasms and short episodes of paralysis in my face. The pain was coming from nothing any doctor could find.

  • Bendable Body Testimonial - Frances Zorn

  • “We were introduced to this stretching method in June 2013. And after a year of consistent stretching, what an improvement it has made for our daughter Gabriella. Gabriella is an 8 year old with multiple disabilities and after being stretched by the team, we have seen progress in many aspects. She has improved her digestion, speech, cognitive abilities, core strength and coordination. Gabriella also loves all the trainers and looks forward to her bi-weekly sessions with John and Sita. The team is also very knowledgeable in other areas of creating a healthy life style, including nutrition. We cannot say enough at how much this work has changed our lives and we encourage anyone to try it.”

    John and Rachel Giordano
  • “It’s been a wonderful compliment to my Pilates practice and I would encourage all variety of active people to try it for themselves to see how it can improve their athletic performance, as well as alleviate a wide variety of soreness and pain.”

    Monica Shores, Pilates instructor
  • “After John worked on my left leg for around 30 minutes he asked me to stand up and told me to move around; my leg felt lighter, and as I bent down I was able to touch my toes for the first time in my life.”

  • “John’s Sunday morning stretching class always yields surprises and brings new dimensions of body/mind awareness for me. And the strengthening and toning is excellent preparation for the week to come.”

    Mark G.
  • “There was a real balance between instructors and I feel like that set a very positive and balanced tone for the class. I like that sharing what you’re feeling, at any time, was strongly encouraged and people seemed to respond and ultimately connect to one another more.”

    Kevin S.
  • “I absolutely LOVED the workshop. I have been evangelizing and telling my friends it is the best $100 I ever spent. I think you all demonstrated and helped all the students in a very positive way. Seeing the stretches performed and being able to ask questions is so much better than just seeing a picture in the book. I have been doing the stretches each day, and my goal is to continue that so that I may realize the true benefits over time. (I’m already feeling benefits!) ”
