What People Are saying
Natalia has been Joanne and my Pilates and yoga instructor for years, and has made a tremendous difference. She comes to our home, which is so helpful for me. She is available days, early evenings, and weekends. At first I thought I would need the Pilates Reformer machine. But I have found that using the Thera-bands, TRX, ball, bosu and Pilates ring, along with stretching, I enjoy it more, and get a better work out. I can’t express how much Natalia has helped Joanne and me. She has really helped my flexibility and balance. She is a caring and motivating instructor.
Natalia is by far the best teacher I have ever had. Whether doing Pilates on the reformer(my favorite), yoga, or training with a TRX on my backyard jungle gym, I always get the best workout with her as my guide. Her dedication to my body’s weaknesses has brought me strength and relief. My back feels better than ever, and I attribute that to her knowledge and adaptability. She is patient, kind, supportive, and if you really put your heart into it, she will bake you homemade treats as a reward!
Natalia employs yoga, coordinated free weight exercises, and Pilates for our training sessions. She has me perform exercises that not only focus on strength but also flexibility, balance, and coordination. These exercises are much more physically and mentally challenging than using the machines or free weights in the gym. During each set, Natalia is focused on each of my reps by making form adjustments in order to get the most out of each set. Her knowledge of the muscles that are activated in each exercise is impressive as well as helpful. After getting through a workout with Natalia, you’ll have a sense of accomplishment that you’ll enjoy for the rest of the day. If you are serious about your training, Natalia will provide the guidance, direction and motivation to be your best.
I have been involved with Pilates and private instruction with Natalia for over two years. Prior to our introduction I had a full shoulder replacement and had been actively rehabilitating with physical therapy at UCLA. While the PT appointments strengthened and provided a sounder range of motion, it was not until Natalia’s personal training and specific Pilates techniques that my shoulder showed defined and progressive improvement. Natalia has a special love for her craft and focuses on the specific needs of her client. No two sessions have ever been the same and she is always incorporating spontaneous and unique versions to the training. I highly recommend Natalia for anyone who seeks improvement to their body, and their life. The sessions are invigorating, personalized and will become the best part of your day. The results speak for themselves.
Natalia is really amazing at everything she does. I first started working with her about 6 months post partum and through her amazing Pilates training, I was not only able to lose all the baby weight but also gain muscle and strength like I’ve never had before. What I love about Natalia is that she is gentle but not afraid to challenge you and for that, I will forever be grateful. You will not regret working out with Natalia!!!
Natalia has been my Pilates instructor for 2 years. She is a skilled professional. She knows every muscle, every stretch, every exercise that exists. I don’t think she has ever done the same routine on me twice, which always keeps it fresh and new! Her attention to form is so acute that whenever I stray she quickly redirects me to make the adjustment. I feel that really safeguards against injury. She has many diagnostic as well as therapeutic techniques so I trust her implicitly. Last but certainly not least she is truly a kind and caring spirit which only further supports her zen craft!! I really enjoy our weekly sessions and I highly recommend her.
I’ve worked with Natalia for about 4 years. We have done Yoga, Pilates, weight training and Thai massage together. Not only is she very knowledgeable about these disciplines, she’s an excellent practitioner of all of them. Lately we’ve been doing Thai Massage and it’s amazing. The best stretch I’ve ever had, by far!! I would recommend her to anyone who wants to do Yoga, Pilates, weight training or get great Thai massages!
