I wondered if online classes would have the same experience as those in person, the reason this online experience has been so great is Irene. She pays close attention to each participant to ensure that the pose is correct and offers specific feedback. She is attentive to assisting with modifications if a particular pose is too challenging. The atmosphere is welcoming and upbeat. I look forward each week to seeing my fellow Yogis at Irene’s class. Tom L

I first attended Irene’s Pilates class in person at a gym near me. I found her class to be so good that I gave her my email address for small group training. When quarantine hit and the gym closed Irene started an online class that I have religiously attended. I try never to miss it — it makes me feel great! I also have joined the yoga class which is great. Robin S

Irene Pastore is the best Pilates instructor I’ve had. I originally started taking classes with her, when I was a beginner and because of the pandemic I started taking online classes via Skype. She’s very knowledgeable, and provides good advice in terms of improving how your body should be positioned with each exercise. What I like best is that she mixes up the exercises from week to week so it’s never boring. I highly recommend her. And the classes are very affordable, compared to other instructors with far less experience. Penny L

I am a 60+ physician who enjoys and looks forward to Irene’s Pilates and Yoga classes.I started taking her classes fairly late in life and while healthy, I will not call myself the most physically fit. Irene’s dedication, sincerity and personal approach has inspired me to return to her classes over time. I have improved over the years and not sustained any injuries during my practice. I feel, stronger, refreshed and energized after each of her classes. Her instructions are also very well suited for the younger generation as well as men who want to learn to stretch and become more flexible. I would highly recommend her wholeheartedly. SSK

I love Irene’s class. While having fun, I notice my improvement. Even online, she carefully pays attention to all participants, gives us alternatives, and nicely correct, which is super helpful. I already see difference in me since 3 months ago. Flamingo

I have been taking Irene’s classes for quite some time – in person and online. She is a knowledgeable and experienced teacher in both Pilates and Yoga. She always ensures that there are modifications for exercises so that students can do themat their own pace. Even online she is assiduous in checking and correcting students. She is a unique teacher in so many ways. Currently taking classes with Irene from France and the UK. Jessica

Irene Pastore is an incredible Yoga instructor and fitness professional. I started taking Irene’s Yoga classes in New York City ten years ago. It was my first experience with Yoga. Today, I am an absolute Yogi — all thanks to Irene. Irene is everything that Yoga stands for: she is very welcoming; she teaches to all levels and makes her classes accessible for people of all ages and fitness levels; she brings out the best of every class participant and pushes/encourages students appropriately; she balances the Yoga-for-mind and Yoga-for body in every class; she is amazing! I became a Yogi because I started taking Irene’s classes and quickly came to love all of the benefits of Yoga. I am forever grateful to Irene for being my first yoga instructor and for teaching me all of the most important foundations of Yoga that will stay with me forever.

I practice Yoga most days of the week and have been fortunate enough to take Yoga all across the country and around the world with MANY different instructors. Irene is still my favorite! Whether you are a beginner or an experienced Yogi, I give Irene my highest recommendation. There is no question that she will make you stronger. I have also taken other non-Yoga fitness classes with Irene. Her Pilates classes are fantastic! My abs have never been as strong as they were when I was a regular in her classes! Irene is the best. Her classes will make you fit and happy! JM
