NATALIE TEACHES PILATES AT LIVEYOGA AMSTERDAM
Ever since I was a little girl I loved to move. I was a very physically active child. Dancing, doing acrobatics or climbing trees, basically anything that was challenging for my mind as well as my body in a relaxed and playful way. As I got older the focus shifted more to my mind, leaving my body behind. Feeling out of balance, I started taking Pilates lessons in 2009. I was amazed at how fast I felt strong, lean and physically confident again. My brain remembered how it felt to move with ease. Pilates helped me restore and keep that mind & body connection and feel balanced again. I decided that I wanted to use my background in communication to share this experience by helping others to reconnect with their body and feel strong inside and out.
In 2013 I started with a Mat 1 certification for Ground Control Pilates® at Debbie Jenners Pilates Company http://www.pilatescompany.nl/ In search for a deeper anatomical understanding, I started the STOTT Pilates® education in The Hague http://www.merrithew.com/. This is where classic Pilates meets today’s knowledge about the human body.
TEACHING STYLE AND EMPHASIS
As an instructor I aim to combine clear instructions with sharing my growing knowledge of the human body. With my enthusiasm and a bit of humor I hope to inspire my clients to discover themselves how empowering mind & body awareness can be and help them feel stronger and happier.
