“From the immaculate equipment to the staff’s deep expertise in Pilates, the goal at Pure Passion Pilates Studio is helping you get stronger.”
"I greatly enjoyed working with Billie. She is always so nice and positive to be around. She is passionate about Pilates and in working with people. Billie is very knowledgeable and experienced in Pilates and knows how to work with clients who may need more guidance and modifications to certain exercises, due to injuries or physical limitations. Before meeting Billie, I had never attended a Pilates class or used a reformer before. Billie put me at ease during our classes together, and was very encouraging. I am so glad I was able to work with Billie!" — TT
"I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to Billie Fenerci as my Pilates instructor. I am a 54-year-old male who had not consistently exercised for two decades. When I met Billie I had just concluded 8 months of one-on-one Pilates training, and I was very worried about my ability to transition to class work. Billie was instrumental in making this happen. She is that rare teacher who really listens and engages each person's individual needs.
In my case, she helped get the studio to offer early morning classes which turned about to be good for many others. Billie also tuned right into what I needed and I found myself getting stronger, while avoiding aggravating my back, at a rapid pace under her watchful eye. She has the ability to get lots of people to follow her instructions while quietly giving little tips to those, like me, who need it.
Her instruction is ideal: matched to each class, easy to understand instructions (with the cutest accent ever), paced well, and always interesting because the classes are so varied. Add to this warmth and friendliness and you have a true Pilates teaching gem! This morning I was taught by a young person who "pushed us" and I missed Billie. She made us work hard while teaching Pilates that builds confidence and skills. Anyplace she works you will find a community of Pilates people because of her caring and warmth.
Miss you. How's it going?" — Doug W.
"Each private or group session based on the client's physical needs and strengths. She is very observant and works to correct imbalance in the body. I am happy to have been assigned Billie for my first private class on the reformer since she was a new teacher at the health club where I am also on staff. I teach a lot of group cycling classes and have taught group exercise for over 30 years, so I know talent when I see it. Since I have started working with Billie, I feel more open, stretched, and stronger. Billie is very warm, welcoming, and encouraging in her demeanor. She brings new exercises into her sessions all the time so her clients are constantly challenged and motivated. I highly recommend her classes." — Jean R.
"Do yourself a favor and sign up for a class with Billie — she's enthusiastic, welcoming, and caring. Billie's knowledge is amazingly deep (I believe she knows and actually remembers all 600 Pilates exercises) so she can immediately suggest an alternative exercise if the rest of the class is doing something that's not feeling good for you, at least today. She uses her knowledge creatively (e.g., Infinity Bar) so her classes are always fresh, interesting, and customized for the students in each session. Billie is an outstanding motivator who somehow gets you happily doing exercises you never thought you'd be able to accomplish. The smile that lights up her face when you succeed is clearly what motivates her." — Cathy L.
"I've been taking private lessons with Billie and love them. She is so positive, and really knows her stuff and is fun to work with. In the classes, you get a lot of individual attention. The teachers really make an effort to know your body and if you have any injuries or limitations and work with you. Some studios just race through the exercises without emphasizing proper form. You are in capable hands and can make a lot of progress in a short period of time. I also think their prices are one of the best deals for reformer classes in the Bay Area. If you get a package or an unlimited membership, you will get more than your money's worth." — Sultana Q.
"Billie’s bright smile and enthusiasm are contagious — especially first thing in the morning when I need a bit of extra motivation. She skillfully blends her talents for teaching proper form safely with challenging, creative and fun sequences that offer a serious workout. (Her cueing is also spectacular, which keeps the class flowing smoothly from one exercise to the next.) I saw new definition in my arms, legs and abs after just a few weeks of regular attendance. Go! Billie is a rare gem not to be missed." — Amelia G.
"I like Pilates when I started it, but after taking Billlie's classes I loved it and learned so much about how best to tailor it to my body's needs and avoid injury by always following her advice. In addition, Billie is an extremely caring individual who puts her heart and soul into every client." — Joyce G.
