“Bianca is my Pilates coach.
Thank to her I feel stronger at each session. She is a dancer herself so she knows what to focus on to help me become a better dancer. She helps me improve my performance and become more balanced with each session. 🙂 Thank you

“Bianca was fun from the beginning. She has a very airy, loose sense of humor that I really appreciated after a long work-day. She was great about correcting everyone’s form and did a good job of alternating intensity.”…”Bianca forces you to release tension from the day”(evening class). Yelp review by Victoria M. for my class at brooklyn pilates – 2/19/2015

“I took Pilates sessions with Bianca Falco starting 2000. Through her classes I learned the amazing transformative benefits of the Pilates system and of Ms. Falco’s unique and effective training. Working with Bianca has been a completely rewarding experience. First of all, she provides a real workout. She designed exercises based on my specific needs and capabilities, eventually leading me to do things that I did not think possible. She was very sensitive at all times to my limitations – both physically and emotionally – making her very comfortable to work with. Bianca is a mature, well-trained and respectful teacher. During her Pilates sessions she makes you work hard and smile!

“Bianca really takes the practice of Pilates to the next level. She manages to simultaneously make our sessions challenging, gentle, humorous and therapeutic. Clearly, Bianca sincerely enjoys both teaching and Pilates itself; she has endless patience and is very attentive and encouraging, not even to mention that her experience goes far beyond just Pilates (and that exposure greatly enriches our sessions). I love the fact that she doesn’t just tell me what to do, but explains the “undercurrents” of the exercise, helping to understand those details that aren’t visible to the eye but are nevertheless critical to the practice of Pilates. I’m now in my fourth year of doing Pilates, and I had other wonderful teachers before, but Bianca is simply OUTSTANDING and I’m very grateful to have found her. Highly recommend!!!- Natalia Carin”

“Regarding Bianca (Bia) Falco, I cannot speak of her highly enough. She was a fantastic teacher and patient friend, while she taught me pilates in 2004. Her sweetness overcame the “hundred” (a torturous aspect of the pilates ab workout) and her grace showed me that the hurdles were indeed surmountable. She was always a perfect teacher – pushed when she knew you could take it, and yielding when it was obvious you were having a bad day. I think that she is a great and beautiful human being. She is a true artist, in many senses of the word. Her ability to connect with her students, as both student and friend, is an amazing gift. Best regards, Cynthia”
