Mindy Goodin - Pilates client at Whole Living Pilates in Colorado Springs

I had suffered from severe right sided sacroiliac pain for over two years. It affected everything I did. It interrupted my sleep, and kept me from doing activities I loved. I was afraid to pick up my grandkids. The pain made me grumpy and depressed as well.

I had a nerve ablation to the sacroiliac which helped some, but the muscles surrounding the area were unaffected and I still had pain and spasms constantly.

I saw an excellent chiropractor who helped significantly. After several months, I was much better, but not out of pain, and the area was easily aggravated. I realized that I had to make changes on MY end of things. The chiropractor suggested Pilates. Best advice I ever got!

I found Whole Living Pilates and it changed my life! I know that sounds melodramatic, but I have no more back pain. The muscles in my low back, pelvis, and around my sacroiliac are stronger and balanced. My whole body is stronger and more flexible. I have no plans to quit!

Tammy Awtry has been my incredible coach. She understands what I have gone through, works closely with me, and has always adapted to my needs. I feel like she has taken this journey as a partner as well as a coach. Her enthusiasm, knowledge, attention to detail, and encouragement have been the best part of my improvement!

It may sound corny, but the other changes I have seen include no more depression, greater confidence to do the things I want, and a lot more energy. My diet is better and I have lost a little weight. Quite a cascade effect from a simple question, “considered Pilates?”

-Mindy Goodin

I wanted to get healthy after 35 years of being a business woman in a very stressful industry. I retired and started working on my health. I met Nicole more than 5 years ago and have never looked back. Here are some the results that I’ve seen in those 5 years:

  • My lower back problems are much better
  • My flexibility is much better (although I’ll never have great flexibility)
  • My balance is much better
  • I’m much stronger
  • And, most importantly, I feel much better

I love the way Nicole teaches. She is very patient ( especially with older women like me)  but will push you when needed. Nicole is a Master Pilates teacher but she is always learning more. I look forward to my classes each week.

-Peggy Carmack

I began my Pilates journey with Nicole over 5 years ago, after recognizing that aging was making staying fit more of a challenge. I absolutely hate working out and I hate to sweat, but I knew I needed to find something that would keep me healthy and strong. Nicole was instrumental in helping me recover from 2 major surgeries. She put together a great plan that had both myself and my doctor surprised with how quickly I was able to recover and regain my strength. I always leave each class inspired by her positive, and upbeat attitude!

-Chante Wrecke

As a Pilates Instructor my standards are very high. I do not hesitate to pay to participate in Nicole’s classes and I arrange my schedule around the classes she teaches. Her deep knowledge of the Classical Pilates Method is evident in the classes she teaches. I look forward to every class I take with her and each time I learn and grow as a Pilates student and teacher. I leave class wanting more and excited to come back. I not only take her classes to become physically stronger but mentally as well.  Pilates breaks down the stress I hold in my shoulders and neck that causes pain and headaches. I have walked into a class in pain and left feeling the huge release I gained from class. Nicole is professional, knowledgeable, and cares about every student she comes in contact with.

-Tammy Awtry

Nicole has helped me re-gain my body AND my mind-body connection! I have taken her reformer classes for years because I love her teaching style.  Her cues are accurate, her corrections and suggestions improve my form and help me get stronger.  She is encouraging and motivating.  Best Pilates instructor I have ever taken from!

-Mary Sue Powers

I have been taking Pilates classes with Nicole for almost 2 years. In the past I have had bulging disc pain, painful nerve issues and TMD.  I am pain free and feel better than I ever have because of Pilates.  Nicole is a fabulous instructor.  She uses a gentle holistic approach and gives clear instructions and precise cues.  Knowing my health history, she is concerned and careful to remind me of modifications.  She is encouraging, patient and friendly.   Nicole has a passion for helping people and for the way in which Pilates can improve peoples’ lives.

For years I have searched for an exercise to supplement the only other exercise I do, walking. Fortunately, I was guided to Whole Living Pilates, where I signed up for two Pilates classes weekly. What an incredible experience! I have tried so many other exercise options, but this is totally new to me and exactly what I needed and wanted. The smaller studio is calm and peaceful with personal attention to all, and with very well-trained professional instructors. I have now attended for over six months and am reaping the benefits of these 50-minute classes. I would highly recommend Whole Living to anyone looking for something that strengthens the core, enhances flexibility, helps muscle tone, all while being enjoyable and fun. Love this place!

I've been going to classes at Whole Living Pilates for several years and I LOVE it here! The instructors are great and the studio is clean. I am 64 and have advanced osteoporosis and I feel comfortable that my workouts here are safe for my age and that modifications are made to address my physical challenges.

I've had the joy of working with Nicole in private training since October 2020. I'm just in my 50s, facing some health issues, but mostly just want to improve my strength and stamina. From our first meeting, its clear to me that Nicole's technique, her generosity and listening skills only add to her knowledge as a mind/body coach. I feel stronger, I now consider her a friend, and I appreciate show she knows when to push me and when I need more support / need to back off. Our bodies are sacred and Whole Living Pilates attends to the sacredness and to "where you are", all while helping you get STRONG!! I can't speak to the group classes but I have no doubt they are as excellent in quality as the personal / private training!

All of the teachers communicate clearly and also convey energy and knowledge while maintaining their own individual and unique styles. I think that the teachers are able to challenge and improve all-comers independent of experience. Connecting😉 with Whole Living Pilates classes very well could be one of the better moves you ever make.

I can’t say enough good things about Whole Living Pilates! The instructors are all incredibly knowledgeable. They will work with you at your level and focus on each individual’s needs, even in group classes. Whole Living Pilates has handled the ups and downs of 2020 seamlessly. I transitioned to online classes earlier this year and have continued to grow stronger, improving each week.

Nicole lead my group of friends through an amazing hour of pilates. I previously took a few private lessons from her and coming back after a break was a breath of fresh air. I couldn't believe how quickly the hour passed by, the joy of working different body muscles, and the positive feeling at the end. Thank you !!

Come check it out.......it's good for you. I have some medical issues and I have been using Pilates to prevent myself from going back into surgery.

I tried pilates for the first time today as part of Colorado Springs Fitness Week. Very welcoming environment and instructor, imaculate studio, convenient location. The instructor was very knowledgable and corrected my form, was positive and encouraging, and had hilarious ways to describe how to move my body into the correct position. Very cool experience, highly recommended.

I am so very thankful for Nicole and Whole Living Pilates! I began coming to see Nicole after ending months of PT, following a spinal fusion surgery and nerve damage in my foot. She personally spoke to my PT to find out what would work best for me ~ safely helping to strengthen my foot and back in my journey back to overall health (especially my core). She has been amazingly patient and encouraging in this process ~ always very knowledgeable with what will work best and not cause any pain. She even began a class for those of us with "special needs"! I have always felt confident in the exercises she leads us through ~ she has been a godsend in my recovery! I would strongly recommend Nicole and Whole Living Pilates ~ she is a wonderful instructor and I enjoy the studio too!

Wow! I just have to say that Nicole has been an amazing instructor! I've been taking semi-private lessons thanks to a dear friend of mine inviting me along. Nicole is poised, patient, explains the benefits of each exercise, and adjusts us or the reformer to make sure we are getting the greatest benefit without impacting existing injuries. She and every instructor I've encountered have been welcoming, friendly, and made me feel like a member of the Whole Living Pilates family from the start! Thank you!

Whole Living Pilates is a blessing and has helped me strengthen my body and core in ways that I didn't even realize I could. Living with various physical challenges from autoimmune disease, I am thankful for the individualized attention of Nicole and the other instructors to help me safely and successfully experience Pilates in the fullest way possible. It has helped me stay strong so I can live an active and healthy lifestyle. I love the simplicity and calmness of the studio and the small class sizes. It is a place where everyone is welcome and made to feel comfortable no matter what your limitations, exercise goals, or health challenges are. I'm so grateful to have found this form of exercise and this particular studio, not only for how it has benefited my body, but also for the care and concern of the instructors for each person.

Whole Living Pilates studio is an immaculate inviting studio and Nicole is an amazing instructor! I have been taking private classes with her and she focuses on what my needs are instead of just giving me a blanket routine. She is caring and warm and enjoyable to be around. I cannot say enough about my time there- I have shown great improvement thus far and get more and more connected every class. I highly recommend Pilates with Nicole at Whole Living for anyone thinking about trying it!

I just completed my 3 persona sessions with Nicole and I can say she is amazing and my results are amazing. I am currently struggling with some major health battles. I have lost so much muscle that I can barely hold my water bottle. Nicole has tailor made my workouts for me. She has taken into account my limitations and where my body is and created something I can do!! This is amazing for me. We scheduled my sessions so my body would not be over worked as that I would have time to work at home. Pilates can be for everyone no matter where you start at!! Nicole and the staff at Whole Living Pilates are the place to start. I am blessed that I found Nicole!!

I have been taking Pilates for several months with Nicole. From day one day one she has made me feel at ease and very comfortable. I have also had the chance to have classes with Olivia Grace and Tammy these ladies are as awesome as Nicole. I enjoy the classes and can’t wait for the next one. I feel so much stronger and better since taking Pilates.

My physiotherapist encouraged me to give Pilates a try and felt like it would add to my whole body wellness. I'm in the over 50 age group and was nervous that my body wouldn't be able to do Pilates. Nicole was incredible at communicating with me as I navigated getting started; answered all my questions, followed up with phone calls and prompt emails. I just finished my Private introduction classes with Olivia Grace and couldn't be happier with my experience. Olivia has been patient, encouraging and in tune with my goals. I already feel stronger and more confident. I'm looking forward to continuing my wellness journey at Whole Living Pilates with Olivia.

I just finished private introduction and classes at Whole Living Pilates. I've only had mat instruction in the past and wanted to learn about the Reformer and if it was right for me. I must say that the classes with Nicole were phenomenal. I did not know what to expect but Nicole was so patient, professional and knowledgeable. At the same time she made it fun and we laughed a lot and she really made me feel comfortable and confident. I am a senior citizen and she made me feel like I did the routines pretty good and was so good at explaining the mind body connection. I have a lot to learn but my body already feels so much stronger and connected. Thanks Nicole for making this experience so positive. I can't wait to start classes. Really appreciate your patience and sincerity.

Nicole is the best Pilates teacher. At 51, I stand 1/2 inch taller than I ever have before because of Nicole's Pilates class. My teenage son was measuring his height, so I joined in. He measured me 3 times- and my husband did too- I measured 1/2 inch taller. I am amazed at all the benefits of Plates and Nicole always makes sure I get the most out of every workout. Thank you so much Nicole!!!

I am a Physical Therapist and Canadian Trained Osteopath that feels that Pilates is an excellent form of exercise for almost everyone. My wife and I have both attended classes at Nicole's studio. I am very impressed with the studio itself, as well as the knowledge base and professionalism of Nicole and the rest of the staff. I routinely refer patients that need gentle exercise and whole body/core strengthening to Whole Living Pilates . They have all been very pleased with their experience as well. I will continue to refer patients to this studio and I recommend them in the highest regard.

I've been wanting to try Pilates for quite some time. I finally reached out to Nicole and she got me set up in the studio. I've never felt more comfortable or welcomed in a fitness setting. I was very hesitant to start something like Pilates since I had no experience but that doesn't matter here at WLPilates. I have worked with both Nicole and Terra so far and couldn't be happier. They are the absolute sweetest and you can tell in their teaching how important Pilates is to them and teaching it to others. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is wanting to give it a try, experienced or not! Can't wait to see where my Pilates adventure takes me!!

Finally a classical Pilates studio in Colorado Springs! It is true to Joseph Pilates' vision with classical equipment and classical instruction. Nicole is an amazing instructor. I moved here from the East Coast and I've been waiting for a studio like this to open for a long time. I have seen great improvements in my Pilates practice since I began working out here.

I've been wanting to come for a while now and I am so glad that I did. I went to a fun, easy, beginner class this morning and woke up muscles I haven't used in a long time. Nicole really knew when to guide me, as a newbie, at the right time, even when a muscle cramped as I let my left abdominal muscle go- she knew exactly what happened, and taught me to strengthen my left side more. Awesome class! Thank you!
