“Feel Good is such an amazing studio. Everything from the ppl that all work there to the studio’s atmosphere! I started attending classes in 2010 and instantly fell in love with Pilates! So much that I took my Mat Level 1 training with Laura Phelps who is the owner and operator of the studio. She made this a fabulous 40 hr training that is made to make you feel relaxed, confident and ready to start teaching fun, safe classes. I am currently taking my yoga training and my Pilates mat level 2!! The studio has become a second home to me. I would highly recommend Feel Good Yoga & Pilates to anyone of any age, gender fitness level etc. as there is something for everyone here!”
