Natalie is a second generation San Diego native who was introduced to mat Pilates fifteen years. She transitioned to reformer Pilates six years ago when she found one of the only two Club Pilates studios. Although one Pilates class meant an hour drive round trip, it was her favorite part of the day during the hectic college years. After graduating with a BA in Sociology from San Diego State she realized that her passion was in Pilates. Natalie went through the Club Pilates teacher training program four years ago and has been teaching at Del Mar for the past two years. When she is not teaching Pilates she is probably taking care of her rescue animals, gardening or watching a basketball game. You'll often times catch her representing her favorite San Antonio Spurs. Pilates has helped Natalie by relieving pain and tightness in her lower back caused by a severe anterior tilt. She specifically loves Pilates because of the way it teaches you to use your body in your every day life.
