It has been 6 months since I started working with Roshean. Prior to starting Pilates I always had stiffness in the shoulders and back causing headaches and general discomfort affecting my sleep.

I can recommend Roshean as I had a personal session with her and she was able to focus right in on my trouble spots "at the core" and help me learn how to help myself and what to do and not do!! Thanks Roshean!

I have seen how Roshean has grown as an instructor of Pilates. She exudes confidence and grace. I am so proud to have mentored her during my short stay at Whitehorse.

It has been an absolute pleasure having Roshean as an instructor. Not only is she very knowledgeable, and a walking example of health and fitness, she's made my introduction to Pilates fun! She has been able to tailor my experience to address my specific needs with sensitivity and encouragement. I was an absolute beginner and in a matter of weeks I feel stronger! Thanks Roshean!!

Hello Roshean, I just wanted to take a minute to tell you how much of a good pilates instructor you are! I took one session with you at the studio in Copper ridge a year and a half ago and I loved it. Now back in Montreal, I've tried a couple of classes with different instructors (that teaches in French, which should be better but no!) and every time I am nostalgic of you!  Good luck with your new studio. Wish you all the best!

Hi Roshean, Just wanted to let you know that I would like to continue with mat classes. I am enjoying the progress and look forward to the challenge of the mat in the New Year!  The recommendation from Dr. Himmelsbach to take classes thru you - has certainly been the best prescription I have ever been given!  You are very good at what you do and I enjoy your classes immensely! Best wishes for 2015!!

I would like to testify to the merits of Roshean as a Pilates instructor.  When I approached Roshean for help I was in a desperate state.  I had had major back surgery and five years later had a total hip replacement.  Where once I used to run, play squash and lift weights, I found myself unable to walk properly.  I knew that my limbs and back and, well, everything was askew.  I had no balance in my walk anymore.  With a major trip to Europe coming up within a few months, I needed help.  Male friends had been trying pilates and indicated some promise.  I went online and found Roshean, who happened to live nearby, which was good.  I contacted her, explained my problem and she thought that she could help me.  Worried about how I would ever be able to work out on a mat and get up afterward (my view of Pilates then) I was surprised that we would be working with the Pilates apparatus such as the Reformer and the Cadillac.  But they worked!!  Over the next few months, Roshean helped me get back to a normal walk, with balance and control.  Even my back seemed more flexible than before.  I subsequently went to Europe and over 5 weeks walked every day, sometimes for hours.  I know that without the instruction and encouragement that Roshean provided, I would not have been able to do it.  She is a superb instructor, constantly explaining why we were doing a certain exercise and why she thought it would help my problem in particular.  I cannot recommend Roshean too strongly.  If you need help, contact her.

Last week I ran into a friend that I hadn't seen in a while. The first thing she said to me was that I looked taller. My response was,"I have Pilates to thank for that!" I came to Roshean with serious lower back pain and a noticeably rounded upper back. This was due to having a weak core. Roshean taught me to engage my core through a series of fun and dynamic movements which strengthened my core and toned both my upper and lower body. Roshean is caring, knowledgeable and very passionate about Pilates. Within a short period of time, she has helped me transform my body and as a result I am stronger, more confident and standing tall!
