“I’m glad to have had the opportunity to learn from Theresa. She has had a profound impact on introducing me to Pilates. I love it!”

“Theresa’s teaching is the best physical training I have ever had. She takes the time to personalize the Pilates Method to best suit the needs of my body. I have felt and seen the positive changes to my posture and in my physique. I enjoy her teaching style because she is encouraging, her cues are clear, concise and she frequently brings a new focus to the exercise that keeps it interesting and challenging. I love doing one private a week and a group lesson -- it strikes a good balance for speedy improvement and is very affordable.”

“Theresa Ouano is the real deal! Professional, knowledgeable, patient, empathetic, creative: I can't say enough good things about this dynamic woman! I vacation at Poipu for a month every year. This is the first time I will leave the island in better shape than when I arrived.  And I owe it all to Theresa and her beautifully equipped, sun-filled studio. I recommend Poise Pilates unequivocally - simply the best!”
