Our Success Stories
Watch the video of Carol and Jenn talk about Premier Pilates and how their rehabilitation practice has helped them recovery from major surgeries.
A core specialty for Premier Pilates is rehabilitation. The goal of rehabilitative Pilates is to restore a client’s full physical function after injuries or surgeries, or to help correct and modify habitually poor movement patterns known to stress the muscular-skeletal system. When recovering after surgeries or injuries, Pilates exercise systems target a return to normal strength and joint range of motion. In the case of poor movement patterns, we teach our students to move better to reduce tissue strain or damage. Our principal focus is on the thoracic spine, the rib cage, and hips. These are the areas that are commonly the stiffest, and most in need of mobilization so that they can move freely with a full natural range of motion. We have developed unique methods for mobilizing these stiffer areas that are critical to successful outcomes.
Premier Pilates body conditioning workouts are proven to provide a well-balanced, whole body workout. The biggest emphasis is put on developing a strong core – toned abdominals and strong back and hip musculature. Every Pilates exercise integrates the trunk, pelvis, and shoulder girdle to help achieve core control – movement of extremities supported by a strong core. We call this movement from the center out and it creates an evenly conditioned body, because it works all muscle groups. No muscle group is ever over or under trained.
There are many risk factors and stressors affecting our lower back: age, genetics, psychosocial stress, inadequate fitness, prolonged sitting or other strenuous body positioning, or specific health conditions (arthritis, osteoporosis, tumors, etc). At Premier Pilates, we believe that the biggest risk factor for back pain is poor posture. How we hold ourselves and how we move has tremendous impact on the health of our back. With us you will learn how to re-establish your proper posture and correct movement patterns, and, thus, regain, and maintain, a pain-free back.

After having a spinal fusion in August, my doctor said that I would need to take Pilates for the rest of my life. I was very fortunate to find Natalia in September of 2013. She has gently guided me to a deep understanding of the relationship between every movement and my core. Working with Natalia has given me a new appreciation for building strength in a careful, structured manner. I greatly appreciate my stronger, pain free body and can’t imagine functioning without regular workouts at Natalia’s studio. I highly recommend Premier Pilates.
Natalia is simply an exceptional Pilates instructor. She is dedicated to her craft and her clients. Being a Spine Physician, I am extremely particular about the knowledge base of my instructors. Not only is Natalia trained in Stott Pilates methods, her background training as a Physical Therapy Assistant gives her a definite edge. She has a deeper understanding of anatomy and form than any instructor I have ever worked with and excels at explaining not only the mechanics of each exercise, but the reason why it is important. She keeps the workouts fresh and interesting, which helps me build core strength, improve posture, and feel great!
I was told by my chiropractor that I should take Pilates to strengthen my core for my bad back. I joined a gym & signed up! It was here that I became a student of Natalia’s at All-Star Fitness for years. I always knew it was too good to be true, to have a teacher THIS GOOD at the gym. Well, Natalia did leave, and started her own business: Premier Pilates. …..So of course I followed her to her new studio , only to discover that her classes here are EVEN BETTER !!! I have taken other Pilates classes with the reformer in the past, and never was impressed. But classes with Natalia are in a whole different ballpark! My 68 year old body is fit, but it benefits so much from Natalia’s vast knowledge of the body, physical therapy, … and even Russian gymnastics ! I feel aligned, stretched, stronger, & SO LUCKY to be a student of Natalia !!! I highly recommend taking Pilates from this MOST EXCELLENT teacher — Natalia at Premier Pilates.
I've been Andrea's client for years, and am delighted that she has moved to Premier Pilates studio. It's a great location, very near the Westlake Whole Foods. The studio is well lighted, clean and utilizes the latest in Stott Pilates equipment. I love working with Andrea and the Stott Method: Andrea tailors the movements to my body's unique quirks and challenges. She has helped me stay away from knee replacement surgery for years now by helping strengthen the entire mechanism surrounding it. Wow.
