Re:NEW - Pilates 101 (55 minutes)


This class is taught by:

Natasha Simmons

Pilates Instructor
 
Natasha studied under Gretchen Iniguez of Lifestyle Pilates in April of 2018. She studied and certified to teach both mat and the reformer apparatus. The training focused on athletic Pilates with heavy influences of the classical style. 
 
Natasha has also received her BarreAmped® Certification in March of 2013, MOTR certifications with Balance Body in September of 2013, personal training and Piloxing® in March of 2014  and was certified in Piyo in February of 2015.
 
Natasha looks forward to using all of her learned certifications that were heavily influenced by Pilates to instruct our clients at Pilates Napa Valley. She plans on structuring each workout to challenge the body and mind.

Studio Owner & Pilates Instructor
 
I opened Pilates Napa Valley in April 2007 after completing the 450-hour intensive Pilates comprehensive apparatus certification through the Physical Mind Institute method. I was inspired by the immediate changes in my own body after practicing three times a week for only one month myself, and chose to shift gears from my 25-year graphic design career, and learn to teach Pilates. I love training my clients of all ages and fitness level, and watching their bodies and lives change through Pilates, just as mine did. 
 
In this class, we put the fun in learning the Pilates FUNdamentals! Great for students new to Pilates, those who are recovering from injury, or are simply de-conditioned from lack of regular movement. Renew your mind, body and spirit in this classically-styled Pilates class. A great introduction to the Pilates apparatus, you will learn the principles of Pilates through mindful breathing and movement on the Mat, Tower, Chair and Reformer. All exercises are designed in a specific order to improve overall strength, balance and flexibility over time. "In 10 sessions you'll feel the difference, in 20 sessions you'll see the difference, and in 30 sessions you'll have a whole new body." - Joseph Pilates
