I've been lucky to work with some incredible clients. Here are just a couple of their thoughts.

"Colleen Ferguson is the real deal. I cannot begin to express just how on point this Santa Barbara based Pilates trainer is, incredibly passionate about what she does and fully committed to her clients, their needs, and their personal  path to wellness. I began training with Colleen in 2010. I was a tad intimidated by the core-focused workout, but under Colleen's fun loving and spirited instruction I quickly fell under her Pilates spell. I am totally hooked to this day and crave Pilates. Colleen has been the ultimate trainer these past few years whether it is private sessions or larger class settings. She never ceases to create a comfortable and uplifting ambiance, all the while maintaining an informative and driven workout experience. My mind, body and spirit have benefited greatly from working with Colleen. She is beyond knowledgeable about the body and multifaceted realm of Pilates, and it doesn't hurt that she is truly a fabulous human being."     - Linnea Villegas

"Colleen is the 'core' of great changes.  She is that perfect mixture of determined perfectionist and generous teacher. Pilates was never as effective or as much fun!"     - Ann Daniel



" Besides being a dedicated instructor and a completely delightful person, Colleen figured out my postural problems and has tailored each session to address the issues.  The routines are always challenging, varied, and fun.  But even better, they really work."     - Dori Carter

"Colleen was my first Pilates instructor and her particular grace and teaching style has served as a huge inspiration in my own practice and interest in becoming a teacher myself.  She is constantly learning more about the method and traveling far afield to bring back new information to her clients.  Her Pilates sessions are always challenging, varied and fun, while her knowledge of the body is grounded in her constant quest to learn more and her years as a ballerina.  Colleen's skill as a teacher, her personal elegance and very special curiosity is a pleasure to experience."     - Leslie Hucko

"Tranformative, connecting, rehabilitive....understanding why we do what we do is refreshing....feeling the results is transformative.  A complete body is whole, sequencing matters... I feel connected. By focusing on the spine i already improved the conditions of my mind."     - Michael Chmielewski |  Maderas Village director of Health & Restoration
