Love Harmony Pilates! I’ve been working out here for the past year and a half and I can’t say enough good things. Amazing dedicated instructors, great customer service, beautiful clean space, and my health and wellness have improved exponentially from my regular pilates practice. Take a class and see for yourself! You won’t regret it.
Pilates has helped me recover quickly from two pregnancies and strengthened and lengthened my muscles in ways that no other workout routine has! It’s a great way to relieve stress and Harmony’s instructors have been so wonderful over the years! Mahalo, Harmony!
I started taking pilates at Harmony a year ago. When I started my lung function was at 38%. The staff and instructors took my disability into consideration during exercise regimen. I had my annual pulmonologist appointment last week and my lung function had increased to 51% over one year! I had also lost about 7 pounds and a dress size. I feel great and wish to thank the Harmony team. The studio is well appointed with stellar instructors. There is schedule that anyone can find a suitable time with a variety of options both in Kailua and Manoa. If you want to improve your health and work on your strength try it out. You are sure to see results if you stay with it.
I am so impressed with Harmony Pilates in Manoa Marketplace. The instructors are so excellent and guide you safely through the exercises to help prevent you from any injuries. I have noticed a huge improvement to my leg strength and more flexibility. In addition, they keep the studio and machines very clean. I would highly recommend this place!😊
