“When my hip became so painful I wasn’t able to do my regular Pilates class Jan Waters worked with me privately on the reformer and a variety of studio equipment designing a program to keep up my strength so I would head into surgery as strong as possible and not weaken by 7 weeks of no exercise. It was amazing with her expertise and guidance how strong I remained. Numerous people at hospital remarked on how strong I was after surgery. Besides keeping my body strong my spirits were lifted. She is an amazing instructor who is totally in tune with what you need and there to provide you with whatever you need. This island is so fortunate to have Banyan Tree Pilates And Yoga and instructors like Jan.” J.W.

“Banyan Tree is our little secret where we can train with educated and passionate teachers, meet new friends that care about their health…but it’s the attention to details and from-the-heart attitude that makes this studio so special!”   K.B., MI
