"Hey Faye, I wanted to let you know that I gave birth to a super cute baby boy two weeks ago. I'm attaching 2 pics....The wall exercise helped so much! I told myself over and over again with each contraction that it is going to last only a minute! I also made sure to relax and breath and I had the natural birth I wanted! We can't wait to come to Mommy and Baby Class!"  H.

 

Hi Faye, I am happy to report that James arrived on Tuesday 9/27 at 2:17 pm. 6Lbs 3oz. No induction was necessary. Fast delivery which was what I was hoping for. Can't thank you enough for helping me prepare through yoga. The breathing techniques and wall squat exercises really came in handy. Looking forward to seeing you at mommy & baby Yoga soon! Jen

 

Hi Faye, Baby boy arrived Tuesday, Oct 18th. Thank you for all your wonderful tips and delicious yoga. I know I wouldn't have been able to make it through this natural childbirth experience with out it/you! Nikki

"HI Faye, I'm not sure if you remember me, I was coming along for support with Amanda when she was pregnant with her little girl, she was due last august! Anyway, the experience there was so wonderful I have decided I want to come back for my own good. I'm expecting baby number 2 in September of 2016. Let me know what dates are available for your upcoming Yoga Sessions.  Thank You", M. 2016

"Hi Faye, Olivia B. was born early this morning at 1:38 am! She weighs 7 lbs 14 ounces and measures 20 inches. Thank you for keeping me feeling good throughout my pregnancy, your stretches really helped me with my back pain and kept me moving! " Lindsay

 

"Hi Faye! On April 20th my husband and I welcomed our second daughter - Reagan Jayne.  She weighed 6 lbs 12 oz and has been an absolute angel!  I just wanted to thank you again for the many relaxing nights during my pregnancy.  I think it helped to keep me calm throughout the labor! Here is a picture of me and my two "yoga babies" - although my oldest is not a baby anymore.  I look forward to incorporating yoga into my post-natal life!!!  Thank you again!" N.M.

"Hi Faye! Sorry this is so delayed, but I wanted to let you know that Norah Elizabeth Pocius was born on March 15! She was 10 days late, and was 6lb 11oz and 19.5 inches long. After going through 24 hours of labor, I could not be more thankful for your prenatal yoga classes! Working through contractions without pain medication would not have been possible without the breathing and relaxation techniques that you taught us. Thank you again! " Siobhan.

 

"Hi, Faye - Hope all is well! I really miss prenatal yoga - such  awesome energy in those classes! I had my little man, Ethan Ryan on January 7. He came in weighing a healthy 8lbs and was 21 inches long - I have a big boy on my hands,  now! :)...I've never taken pilates, but after  reading the testimonials on your website, I have to try it - I want to get back into pre-baby shape! Can't wait to get back onto the mat! Shanti..." Erin
 

"Hi Faye  :-)  Sorry it has taken me so long to get this email & pics to you!!  It's been a bit busy with big sister Aisling & Baby Ciaran. But, I hope you & the prenatal gals are doing well.  Anyway, just wanted to drop a line to say thank you, thank you again for the lovely & wonderful prenatal yoga experience!!  I loved being part of the class-it was truly great.  

Labor & delivery with Ciaran was very, very short (I was only in labor for 6 hours-gave birth naturally) and much easier the 2nd time around.  And, I would like to contribute that to all the yoga  :-)  The deep breathing was so helpful to me, as it was when I had Aisling too, but I certainly used it with Ciaran!  I look forward to taking your Thursday yoga classes again soon-I'll be in touch once my doctor says it's ok  :-)  And here are a few pics of everyone  :-)  Enjoy & see you soon."

Love,

Colleen

"Art and Soul has changed my life! In Jan of 2015 I had gastric bypass surgery and when my doctor suggested I start exercising, I discovered Faye and am now a fully committed devotee! I was not deterred that most people who looked to be doing pilates were far more fit than me, and Faye has been my biggest cheerleader and supporter. I explained my history to her and she helped me adjust the moves to my ability level and has worked with me along the way and now I am fully capable!!! 

I am devoted to the Pilates Reformer class and have also taken the Yoga classes and they are all DELICIOUS!!! Sounds like a strange adjective, but once you reach that place of feeling like you are doing something wonderful for your body and your soul....you will understand!! I actually achieved a state where I could FEEL my body thanking me!! It's phenomenal, and amazing and totally achievable! 

"At first I took a couple of the drop in classes and soon learned that Faye's packages are truly the best way to go. The scheduling is a breeze and Faye is so accommodating with her time, her efforts and is an invested partner in making sure all her clients achieve the absolute best in fitness and well being."

"I love the Reformer classes at Art & Soul with Faye. Her music is so great to motivate us! So much fun hearing great songs while working my abs, arms, butt, cardio, legs, you name it , we are workin it! The best total body workout each time I go. never the same workout, always a little bit different. Aways challenging. Always a bit sore after class letting me know I worked something out and making changes in my body.

Faye is so upbeat and makes it so much fun, you almost forget you are working out." Wendy

"I have been taking both Pilates Reformer classes and Yoga from Faye Rose for the past two years and it's been a life changing experience for me. Faye is an excellent teacher who combines her years of knowledge and experience of yoga and Pilates with caring, energy and great music, making every class a joy to attend. With Faye's help, I've learned how to improve my core strength and lessen the daily stress of a busy life. I am stronger, leaner and much healthier than I've been in years!" Debra

"One of the best workouts around! I am a personal trainer for a living and I love the reformer workout. It takes a lot of strength and doesn't disappoint in terms of immediate results. The position(s) on the reformer provides a guide to be in the correct form and can be set for any fitness level. LOVE!" Ruth

"Faye is terrific. She has helped me tremendously with my back problem. I look forward to going to Pilates -- and I never liked exercising! Great place." Barbara

 

"Great experience. good ambiance, music, and setting. Faye was very helpful guiding me through my first attempt at the Pilates Reformer." Bettyann

 

"A friend told me about Art & Soul Yoga and I called to inquire about the pilates and yoga classes. Love, love, love it. Faye is an amazing person. She has great energy when teaching her classes. The music she plays during pilates makes you want to dance which makes for a really fun class. Since I enjoyed pilates so much, I am also taking her yoga classes. The yoga room is spacious, relaxing, and so peaceful. Now my sister and friends join me in classes. Faye, thanks for making working out so enjoyable." Annette

 

"Pilates reformer is such a great workout. The rooms are great for Pilates and Yoga and teaching is great. Wish I could come more often!" Rose

 

"I had forgotton what it felt like to be nourished and guided toward things that are good for me. In my individual session, with my intention to slowly ease back into regular yoga, Faye was right there with me, modeling and shaping while conveying the belief that bodies do indeed heal and get stronger even at my age (66). There are steps down into the studio." Marie

 

"Faye... Your yoga class on Thursday's is the highlight of my week!!!!!" Sharon

 

I found Faye just over two years ago.  She has become a very important part of my life, as through her I have learned about the importance of wellness and balance. I have MS, and over the years I became more sedentary. Faye started me off with chair yoga, and then we worked up to floor yoga. She identified a problem I had with balance, and added pilates to our sessions to build my strength and balance. Two years later I am stronger, more confident in my physical being, and through our yoga have become a calmer, more centered person. Faye is an extraordinary individual and I consider myself lucky to have her as my teacher. And she's a lot of fun!  Jan

"Faye, I would like to share with you my experience with yoga. As you know, I am an engineer with very busy schedule and work load. Frequently, I was bothered with back pain and stiff neck problem. After four sessions with you, I have not experienced any stiff neck problem. The back pain is also largely gone. In addition, I feel that it helps to strengthen my concentration and inner strength, and the ability to handle the day to day hassle. I can see that I am getting hooked on it.Thanks." Yongli

 

"I've been taking pilates with Faye for one month now and I can't believe the difference it has made for me already! It's much easier to walk up stairs, my legs and ankles feel so much stronger! I have noticed my clothes feel looser, and doing the pilates gives me a feeling of well-being. I walk into the class feeling stressed out, tired and achey and leave like I'm a new person! I feel energized, taller, centered and happy! I also love the way Faye coaches me all through the workout to do the excersize with good alignment and form protecting me from injury and helping me to get the most out of each movement. Thank you! " Marsha

 

 

"I recently took a pilates class at Art and Soul Yoga. Since I am new to pilates, I didn't know what to expect. Going into the class I was feeling very lethargic and drained of energy. However, when I left the class I was invigorated. I had an enormous amount of energy which continued throughout my day. I found Faye to be an excellent teacher. She explained the moves well and was very patient. I plan on taking many more classes at Art and Soul Yoga." Barbara

 

 

"Faye's yoga class is the highlight of my week. I look forward to her calming voice, encouragement, inspirational readings, and best of all her foot massage at the end......ohhhh! " Debbie

 

"Before I took Pilates with Faye I had a severe cramp in my neck. Everything I tried to alleviate the pain-massage, hot compresses,ice--to no avail. My husband tried to massage the area and commented how tight my neck was and he could feel a knot. Well, after 2 classes with Faye on the reformer I noticed my neck pain disappear. Even my husband noted he couldn't feel the knot. AMAZING! Elizabeth

“Faye's yoga classes are amazing. All my back pain has disappeared. Her voice is so relaxing. I wish I could take her home with me.” LL

"I had been having severe muscle spasms in my chest, abdomen and lower back for some time, with increasing severity.  The Neurologist/Chiropractor prescribed exercises actually caused more spasms.  In an effort to avoid the next treatment, injecting my muscles with lidocaine, I decided to look into yoga.  I found Faye Rose and went to see her.  She taught me yoga breathing ad some yoga stretches.  Faye also recommended a nutritional cleansing diet and massage by Wendy, also at the studio.  With yoga breathing I immediately had some control over the spasms.  Within five weeks of private yoga lessons, diet and massage, I had had my last spasm.  16 months later I remain spasm free.  Thanks Faye!"--Bill M

 

 

 "I wanted to tell you what a wonderful job Kathy did on last Monday. She was amazing. She pushed me with a challenging workout but still one that was within my skill set. My heartbeat was up for the majority of the class which made me feel that I not only got a good workout and burned some calories, but that I really focused on the routine and more importantly on me. The savasana was so relaxing and rejuvenation. When I went home I felt like I could do anything. I took my daughter ice skating later that day (I've never been), I felt like I could get on the ice and do spins and jumps. The reality was that I couldn't, but I thought I could because of how good I felt! I did fall only one time, so I think all the balancing poses helped with the ice skating. That session with Kathy was really one of my favorite classes that I have taken to date." Desiree, Cardio Yoga Class

 

 

"I gained over 50lbs with my first pregnancy. Pilates with Faye helped me loose all the weight and then some! It has helped me get my abs back and made my legs thinner than ever. Faye is very pleasant and nice to work with. I highly recommend this class!" Kate I , Lawyer and new mom

 

 

"Since taking classes with Faye, I have trimmed inches and toned up very quickly. Her classes are fun, factual and she offers great instruction. I've worked out on my own for 15 years and faye's classes have provided much more results, quicky. I'm stronger, more confident, clothes fit better, and feel good about my body. i highly recommend Faye and her reformer classes..." Kathy Ricci

 

"Exercising always revolved around my schedule until I started Pilates with Faye Rose. Going through menopause is very difficult but pilates with Faye has helped with my energy level, moods and sleep. She is truly a professional and devotes extra time to each client making you feel so special." Francine Giannane

 

"Hi Faye  :-)  Sorry it has taken me so long to get this email & pics to you!!  It's been a bit busy with big sister Aisling & Baby Ciaran. But, I hope you & the prenatal gals are doing well.  Anyway, just wanted to drop a line to say thank you, thank you again for the lovely & wonderful prenatal yoga experience!!  I loved being part of the class-it was truly great.
