I have been practicing Pilates and, occasionally, Gyrotonic at Somaspace for about a year now. I first discovered Somaspace when seeking another practice that was 'Pink Ribbon' friendly to supplement the yoga and other physical work I was doing to gain back mobility and strength. I cannot say enough about Somaspace, Amanda Vernor, the owner, Shannon Knisley, who I most frequently practice with, and Shelby Walters. I feel a) cared for b) part of a special practice and c) have gained remarkably both physically and emotionally as I've learned to reconnect with my own body and mind in new ways. At this stage, some weakness connected to a diep flap incision that supported a double mastectomy is GONE. The words 360 arm movement, full back bend, forward stretch and sit up - which did not exist when I began are now core parts of my practice. Thank goodness I found Somaspace. It's a very important part of my life.
