The Natalie Garay Methode:
Private Pilates & Flower Essence Therapy
Pilates is the most effective and gentle way to rehabilitate after childbirth.
When I was introduced to Pilates in 2002 while I was pregnant with my twin daughters, I didn’t realize how fortunate I was to have been introduced to such an amazing practice for rehabilitation after birth and surgery.
It wasn’t until years later, after working with many mothers and hearing too many stories of my clients experiencing bladder leakage or organ prolapse after childbirth, that I decided to focus on postpartum rehabilitation.
Pilates is not only healing to the body but also to the mind and spirit. Healing will take place. I have experienced it over the years and I see it on a regular basis. To aid in the healing process, I incorporate Flower Essences; it’s a magical compliment to Pilates for a complete healing modality. You can read more about Flower Essence Therapy here.
What to expect:
I offer Private Pilates sessions only so that I can tailor the practice to meet your body’s specific needs. During your first appointment, we’ll start with some deep abdominal connection exercises to build a strong foundation, then slowly move into a gentle strengthening practice. You’ll leave feeling stretched, rejuvenated and strong.
What to wear:
Wear comfy, somewhat form fitting clothes so that I can see your body’s alignment.
How often should I practice?
I recommend coming in at least twice a week as you’re beginning to build strength. However, if time doesn’t allow you to make into the studio twice a week, I will give you home exercises to practice in-between sessions. The key to seeing and feeling stronger is consistency.
I would love to practice Pilates with you but I don’t live near your studio.
I have several clients all over the U.S. that I work with online via Skype or Facetime. Some of my clients have a Pilates Reformer at home, others use a Mat and Pilates props. I can recommend props for you to purchase.
How do I get started?
Email me! Your first session is a 60-70 minute consultation. During this time, we will discuss your needs, then I’ll show you how to reconnect to your core and help you build a strong foundation by teaching you fundamentals of Pilates. I’ll also give you some home exercises to practice. From there, we’ll discuss your commitment and schedule your upcoming sessions.
I look forward to supporting you!
