LEAD INSTRUCTOR & OWNER
Natalie discovered The Pilates Method while living in Chicago, Illinois, and it did not take her long to realize this was to become a lifelong commitment to the Method- and a healthful, rewarding career. She experienced major improvements in long-term spinal and hip issues and pain, as well as postural improvement and overall health, happiness and increased energy.
In 2007, Natalie completed her certification through Coastal Carolina Pilates Certification at In Balance Pilates Studio. The comprehensive program included over 225 hours of anatomy and physiology education as well as learning the entire Classical Pilates Method Repertoire. She has taught over 10,000 hours in the past 7+ years, and her energetic, no-nonsense anatomy/form based classes are always exciting and different.
Natalie enjoys teaching students of all ages, fitness and mobility levels, and appreciates that every client has personalized needs and goals. She strives to guide her students to surpass their goals, working in safe, healthy ways.
Shannon is a North Carolina native who discovered Pilates while living in Hawaii in 2003. She quickly realized the Movement Method greatly improved her strength, endurance, and stability in her busy outdoor lifestyle. After returning to NC in 2005 she completed a 600 hour comprehensive certification program through Power Pilates of NYC. She has been teaching in Wilmington for over a decade. She continues to share her knowledge and passion for the Pilates Method to clients of all ages and abilities. She strongly believes as Joseph Pilates did that "Movement Heals!"
Coming from a family full of athletes, Tori has always been interested in movement and its effect on our well-being. Tori grew up playing basketball and played at High Point University but passed on a scholarship to better take care of her health. Tori was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2011 and Trigeminal Neuralgia in 2019 and has been treating these conditions with alternative practices ever since. This is when she found her love for Yoga, Pilates and Nutrition. She was drawn to the rehabilitation aspect being the Pilates Method and further drawn to the mind-body connection the method forces one to develop.
She completed her 500 Hour Comprehensive Teacher Training in the Fall 2018 and her RYT200 Certification in March 2019. Her study and practice of both Yoga and Pilates compliments her teaching style as she strongly believes in increasing body awareness that we can translate to our daily life. Emphasizing the importance of functional and mindful movement techniques within the body, she believes in order to heal our bodies we must know our bodies.
