“When I first came to Pacific Spirit Pilates, I was limping and in pain. I was taking pain killers to sleep because of osteoarthritis. After about 6 weeks of Pilates private equipment sessions, I have no pain and I don't limp. I have not taken pain killers in a long time. I sleep all night without awakening. I enjoy walking now because it doesn't hurt and I am able to walk further. My daughter tells me I am taller [because my knees are no longer bent]. I can now sit without my knees aching. This is especially nice on a long flight.”–Janet Sinclair
“Pacific Spirit Pilates has truly changed the way I view Pilates rehabilitation and exercise. A few months ago, I was in a Motor Vehicle Accident. From this, my injuries were both muscular and neurological, including numbness in the hands. Along with these injuries, I was also getting headaches constantly. I have found Yvonne Bray to be extremely educated in Pilates! She took the time to assess my gait, and local concerns. She found the right exercises that helped to strengthen both the weak and inflamed muscles in my body. I no longer have constant headaches, and the pain in my body is improving immensely! I would recommend this to anyone who wishes to receive relief after an injury!” Thank-you!–Julie Shillabeer R. Ac. Registered Acupuncturist
“For the past month I have been training in Pilates with Yvonne Bray from Pacific Spirit Pilates. From knowing nothing at all, Yvonne has shown me the right technique for all of the movements. We have been focusing on core strength and slowly working to correct my bad posture and shoulder problems. I have been attending twice a week and have also been following up with recommended stretches and exercises between visits. I am noticing good results and the sessions are very relaxing as well. Pacific Spirit Pilates is in a great location on Granville Street and the studio is very nicely finished. Yvonne is very knowledgeable and a good teacher. Thanks Yvonne for your help!”–Scott Haile
"I first met Yvonne Bray 2 1/2 years ago after reading an article in the Vancouver Courier. It grabbed my attention because I could relate to it personally. I had always been very physically active with biking, hiking, sailing, weight lifting etc. Then one day my neck & back seized up so terribly I couldn't do anything. The pain was horrible with tingling & numb sensations in my hands and feet. I thought I was falling apart. Before meeting Yvonne, I tried everything to get my physical being back in shape where it used to be: Dr.'s appointments, tests for serious neurological diseases, pain killers, muscle relaxants, massage therapy, physiotherapy, kinesiology, etc... & the list goes on... After working with Yvonne 2-3 times a week I am enjoying more physical freedom and a renewed enthusiasm for life!"–Linda Richardson

"It was by wonderful chance that I happened on Pacific Spirit Pilates in my neighbourhood and what a gift that turned out to be. For years my body had been incorrectly compensating for soft tissue damage in my neck and back as a result of some previous car accidents. After numerous types of therapies and variations of exercise, I could not seem to heal or become stronger the way I'd hoped. Yvonne's approach to Pilates in assessing your core issues and creating a personal program to focus on bringing muscular balance to the body is exactly what I needed. Yvonne is passionate about her work and that is genuinely reflected in the care she takes in her clients. Thank-you Yvonne." –Diane Jolicoeur-Vancouver
"I can't say enough good things about Yvonne and Pacific Spirit Pilates! When I started with her I was having migraines and needed chiropractic treatments on a regular basis. At the age of 36 I was always in pain. Within a few appointments I started to stand taller and no longer needed to go to chiropractic and after about 6 weeks I stopped getting migraines and had more energy! Clothing fit better and my posture was so much better I actually looked and felt younger and graceful in the way I moved. Pilates is by far the best thing I ever did for my health and fitness!" –Aleesia McNarland-Vancouver–
