I love Pilates because it has made my core strength and back strength so much stronger which is so important for me as a ballet dancer. My posture and flexibility are better too, and the exercises you've taught me in your tower and mat classes and in your Injury Prevention Workshop are helping me with my technique, flexibility, strength, and turnout in ballet. I love your classes and your beautiful studio. Thank you!
I have been doing Pilates with Natasha
for several years and am constantly amazed
at her caring, her personal attention and
her knowledge of the physiology. She knows
what I need for strengthening, but never
pushes to the point that might cause pain.
She adapts the workout routine to my own
needs, I've experienced her large mat
classes and her ability to lead the classes
is exceptional. I have had Pilates classes
in other places and I believe Natasha is the
best instructor I've seen- I have a basis
for comparison. Natasha's Pilates keeps me
healthy and feeling very good and I am over
70 years old. -Winifred Wilhelm
After a high school and college athletic career, I was looking for some type of exercise that was able to challenge me but also help rebuild the muscles I had damaged. Pilates appealed to both the athlete and dancer in me with its fluid movement and precise exercises. The Pilates Institute demonstrates that Pilates is not a one size fits all type of exercise. Whether you are an experienced athlete or a novice to personal fitness, Pilates has a starting point that is suitable for everyone. Pilates also opened a new door for my family, Pilates was a healthy way for us to spend time together. Now many of our holidays and vacations include a fun Pilates workout together! One of things I love most about the Pilates institute is the diversity of challenging exercises within each class. As your strength and confidence grows you are exposed to new exercises further developing your Pilates experience.
