Natasha LaFayette - Guest Pilates Instructor Natasha LaFayette discovered the Pilates Method of Body Conditioning as a dancer as a way to keep up with the strenuous demands that dance puts on the body. After practicing Pilates for the past 20+ years it has become a way of life for Natasha, and she decided to continue her education by obtaining her certification through Power Pilates in NYC. Natasha has described her experience with Pilates as one that allowed her to dance longer and stronger injury free. Natasha’s love of Pilates has developed into a passion of teaching her students and watching them discover their own physical capacities within their bodies as they grow through practicing the classical Pilates technique. She finds it especially fulfilling to see her clients excel at their crafts as performing artists and athletes when they develop that core strength that too will keep them going longer and stronger. Natasha can speak first hand about the results she has achieved through Pilates and what she has observed in her students bodies.
