Nathalie is very warm, enthusiastic, and attentive with each of her students. With her instruction, I was able to gain strength and flexibility which I thought I had lost forever. She is passionate and knowledgable, and designs complete workouts that fit the individual needs of her clients, helping us to recognize the progress our bodies make by committing to our workouts. It has been a pleasure and privilege to be able to work with Nathalie!
Nathalie is truly a master at her craft. Her extensive knowledge and enthusiasm for her work, combined with a deep sense of professionalism and caring make Nathalie so amazing at what she does. Each workout is specifically crafted to accommodate the needs of her clients, with careful attention to correct form so as to prevent injury and to achieve the highest possible results. The combination of Pilates and Yamuna Body Rolling compliment each other wonderfully to achieve results that strengthen and align the body. You’ll find yourself wanting to come back to exercise more often because of Nathalie’s passion for good health and the fitness of her clients. She’s the best.
Before attending Nathalie's Pilates class, we had only attended a Pilate's class once in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was a good workout but we were in a class with approximately twelve other people and we weren’t given individualized instruction on utilizing proper form that is a necessity to prevent any type of injury. We started taking Pilates with Nathalie just over two years ago as we had heard great things about it and decided to give it a try. We went twice a week for about eight months before Nathalie moved back to France. During that time period, Pilates changed our work-out routine, in so many ways; some small and some very significant. Also, during that time period, we noticed that our bodies were in much better physical condition. Our cores were strong, our arms were defined, our legs felt strong and firm and our overall energy improved tremendously. It was a very easy program to start and to stay with. We enjoyed going to class every time we went, not only because the level of individualized instruction was excellent, but because it was always different, new and exciting. At the end of every Pilates class you feel fantastic, you get through it and feel stronger for it. Once you start you will become addicted, there are not many workouts that have that effect on you, and the results speak for themselves. We just need to find another Nathalie!

Nathalie is so fantastic is so many ways. I should start by saying that I was probably the worst student she ever had. I have poor posture and core strength so I would do anything to distract her from making me work hard. However, she always managed to make sure I had a challenging workout. In the beginning I was a little worried that I would not be able to do Pilates. I thought I wouldn't be able to do the exercises. However, I was having consistent back pain and knew I had to do something so I decided to try working out with Nathalie. It truly was the best decision I could have made. Nathalie was very patient and careful to explain body positioning and breathing. I loved her calm, detailed, and focused method of instruction. She created many different workouts so I was always challenged and never bored. My core became stronger, back pain diminished, and I became more limber. I could touch my toes and balance on one leg without falling over. Those were huge accomplishments for me.
During the years Nathalie taught me I did many classes with other people as well as individual sessions. Even in a class with another student I felt we each received one-on-one attention and detailed focus on our individual needs. She was ready with hard workouts but was also flexible enough to adjust the class if a student needed to stretch a particular area or had an injury. The nice thing about Pilates and all the equipment Nathalie has in her studio is that she can change and adjust the workouts very quickly. One last thing I would like to mention is how Nathalie and her studio make you feel a part of an extended family. I met such wonderful, positive, and supporting people through her studio. Working with Nathalie has been truly a special experience in my life. I can't encourage everyone enough to give Pilates, and Nathalie, a try not matter your age or physical condition. My only regret is that she moved to Figeac!
