I sooo enjoyed class yesterday. It was awesome! It was great meeting you and I love your instruction style...personal demonstration, but not 'doing' the class yourself, hands on, caring, relaxing, quality over quantity... GREAT! I feel like my call to you yesterday was meant to be and I am excited about my venture ahead. Your words of support meant so much to me and they have been rolling around my head, helping me to stay positive and focused. Lori Hunt, Salem, VA. Busy woman, ready to care of herself again.

"Erin is a fantastic teacher. She has a magical way of breaking movements down so you can absorb them! She is extremely knowledgeable and makes you feel at ease while trying new movements." Kathryn A. New York, New York.
Please know that I greatly value you, & your classes, & the way you teach. E. Headrich. Therapist. Roanoke, VA.
" Personal, concerned, caring, supportive!" M. L. S. Special Education teacher; Roanoke, VA
"Erin's style of teaching is innovative, fun, & always professional. She pushes and challenges students to their limits, but but never over the edge. She pays attention to each individual and corrects their poses gently and safely. She is extremely popular and well loved by her students because of her enthusiasm, warmth, and training style. As an avid exercise and nutritional enthusiast for over the last 50 years, I have been taught by many teachers including martial arts, weight training, yoga, Jivamukti, Ashtanga, Tai Chi, and more. I found Erin greatly superior to all previous teachers. She is quite skilled and extremely knowledgable. As a thoracic and cardiovascular surgeon who practiced for over 35 years, I dare say Erin's knowledge of Anatomy and pathophysiology is better than my own store of knowledge. Erin is Awesome. Parviz Sadjadi, M.D. American College of Surgeons

Erin, thank you for the depth of your experience and knowledge, and even more, your wise, loving and fun manner in teaching the pilates mat class last weekend. You consistantly inspire me to more than any other body instructor-healer. E. H. massage therapist CO
I have taken scads of coursework over the years as a licensed therapist for 30 years and this was by far one of the finest in terms of the organization and presentation. Ms. Garvin was excellent at delivering the information and linking it to practical use. from day one she created a sense of community among the participants and it became a project for everyone to get the most and deliver their best. Her knowledge and expertise were evident as was her passion for the method while at the same time she was in the moment positive and available. A. K. licensed Physical Therapist. West Virginia.
Suzie is a remarkable teacher. At the end of her class on Monday, people clapped, myself included. I was challenged by her in ways that are unique to her style. She literally kept me on my toes, and I worked harder in order to make my body coordinate according to her instructions. The differences in her patterns and poses combined with her slightly different teaching style make her a perfect teacher in this business. E. H. massage therapist CO
