Natalie started attending Pilates classes in 2004 and since then it has been her ‘go to’ for feeling unknotted and relaxed! She credits Pilates for strengthening her core, bringing awareness to her movements and improving her posture and balance, so her body is better prepared for the unexpected.
She took a leap away from the corporate world and indulged her passion by training with APPI, a Pilates Company led by Physiotherapists, who have taken the classical moves from Joseph Pilates and have broken them down into levels, to help with rehabilitation of the body. Since qualifying Natalie starting her own Pilates Company. Her style is purposeful, detailed, nurturing and lighthearted using lots of visual prompts to help focus on ensuring correct muscle activation and movement. Her sessions help to stretch, strengthen and mobilise our bodies, appreciating how they move, and how posture, balance and control are all affected.
