“I have done A LOT of Pilates and Hillary is one of the BEST teachers I have worked with. She is focused and aware and interested in how your body works, and in my case, doesn’t. She was tough and tender and I left with a renewed desire to re-connect with my practice.”
-Jamie Lee Curtis
“It is with great pleasure that I wholeheartedly recommend Hillary Brown in any of her services. In the nine months that I have known and worked with Hillary, she has taken me from absolutely no knowledge of dance technique to a proficiency level for which I earned a talent award and college scholarship for my efforts. She far exceeded my expectations by not only teaching me the basics of beginning and advanced dance technique but also assisting me with choreography, costume and continued coaching as I continue to use my dance skills to seek additional scholarship awards. I never dreamed I could achieve what I have under her direction and know that she would be a tremendous asset to any arts program utilizing her skills.”

“I have known Hillary since I was about twelve years old. Now, here I am at 17 about to go to college. During the past five years of knowing Hillary, she has become a teacher, mentor, older sister, and inspiration. As a teacher, she provided a foundation for me and helped me set my goals. As a mentor, she gave me guidance and pushed me to new limits. As an older sister, she put me back in my place and continued to humble me. However, I think the biggest thing she has become for me is an inspiration. When Hillary had a stroke, it really shocked me at how young she was. It made me wonder if she would be able to teach me again. However, Hillary pushed through leaps and bounds and was able to make a full and amazing recovery. Her story inspires me everyday to really live life to the fullest and to never give up.
Hillary has not only taught me technique in dance, but she has taught me to be a positive person. It has been a blessing to be her student and friend. Because of her, I see life in a different light and that anything is possible if you put your mind and heart into it.”
“Finally, after years of working with many different instructors I found Hillary Brown at The Total You! Hillary has done what no other instructor has been able to do for me. She got my mind and body to connect with each other allowing me to develop long, lean muscles, gain balance and self awareness that has given me freedom from chronic pain. Her genuine passion and sincerity combined with her years of experience give her the ability to see what others cannot when it comes to teaching and motivating. Thank you Hillary.”
Mahalo for all the updates and important info. I wanted to thank YOU for being so professional and timely in your communications with parents, as well as continuing to ensure that The Total You provides an atmosphere of firm and caring instruction. I appreciate the fact that you focus on technique, proper dance attire, and appropriate class etiquette with your students, yet make them feel that they are a well-loved part of your school family, in an enjoyable setting. This has continued even with new teachers!!!
