Owner of The Pilates Institute Natasha discovered the Pilates Method of Body Conditioning while as a dancer as a way to keep up with the strenuous demands that dance puts on the body. After practicing Pilates for over 20 years it has become an integral part of her life. Natasha pursued her Pilates education through Power Pilates® in NYC. She has since received her
GYROTONIC® Certification, MELT Method® and Reiki certification throughout the following years. She often describes her experience with Pilates as one that allowed her to dance longer and stronger injury free. Her Pilates training opened the door to other modalities to introduce to her clients as an effective means for re-patterning movement and moving pain free, re-connecting to the core and re-connecting to movement.
Natasha’s love of movement and anatomy has developed into a passion of teaching her students and watching them discover their own physical capabilities within their bodies as they grow through practicing the classical Pilates,
GYROTONIC®, and MELT Method® techniques. She finds it especially fulfilling to see her clients excel at their crafts as performing artists and athletes when they develop that core strength that too will keep them going longer and stronger.
Natasha may speak first hand about the results she has achieved through Pilates,
GYROTONIC® and MELT Method®, and what she has observed in her clients. Her reputation extends far beyond Saratoga Springs but to Boston, Nantucket, New York as she has worked with professional athletes from major sports teams all over the US, and talented dancers from New York City Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Boston Ballet etc. She has traveled internationally for both dance related projects and teaching Pilates. Natasha has also been affiliated with the Saratoga Summer Dance Institute and the National Museum of Dance teaching their Pilates & MELT Method® program during the summer.
