“I discovered RIO after being tasked with researching every pilates, yoga and dance studio and instructor in Nova Scotia for another small business. All I can say is that I wish that RIO had been open sooner. It isn't often to find so many talented people who also have great attitudes and are so warm and inviting. “
“I keep coming back to RIO because with each class I’m in, I achieve something that I had previously thought unattainable. I’ve learned that yoga, pilates, whatever it may be is for everybody, and every body”
“I love everything about RIO-the positive energy of the instructors, the playful rebel vibe, the great music, the diversity of classes. I’m feeling stronger and healthier already and to my age 50 milestone next year I now say- Bring it on!”
“As a result of injuries and two surgeries I spent six years seeing surgeons, physiotherapists and occupational therapists and finally "graduated" from PT. This happened in large part to the classes I take at RIO. I make every effort to go to various classes six days a week. Which can be difficult for anyone to do, but I'm so dedicated that it takes me two hours each way to get to a class.”
“I lived in Vancouver for many years which is considered one of the international epicentres for yoga and pilates, and as a result took classes taught at work from a studio with 11 different locations. And yet Connie McInnes, in a relatively short amount of time, has managed to bring together a group of people whose style is reminiscent of private one-on-one instruction. “
“All fitness instructors should point out modifications during any type of class, but at RIO, they take the time to point out individual-based corrections “
“Such luck that I was walking past the studio one day and saw your street sign! You’ve created something special: Your warm and welcome vibe runs through the studio and everyone involved. The success of RIO is a testament"
