“Natalie has made me a true believer in the
GYROTONIC® discipline!! I am a senior over 60; GYROTONIC® and have been a Pilates student of Natalie’s for over 5 years. During much of that time, I suffered from PMR, a
disease which causes extreme joint pain and inflammation. Natalie kept me moving through it all, and because of her extraordinary
knowledge, wonderful patience and
encouragement, helped me maintain my strength and flexibility – and even advance to some level 2 work!! Natalie is a lovely,
energetic young lady with a positive,
motivational teaching style. She is an
inspiration to all her students!!”
- Marcia Messmer
“I’ve been going to Natalie for several years. Her energy, her overall knowledge of
GYROTONIC® and Pilates, knowing how much one wants from their session, and her bubbly personality always bring me back for more. Not to mention how much fun she makes our
sessions. I started with Pilates and now the added GYROTONIC® is a big plus! The strength and flexibility you gain is tremendous. I’m a golfer and there is no doubt that it has helped my swing. In the past I would start an exercise routine and end up quitting. I know I won’t with GYROTONIC® and Pilates!”
- Cindy Callaway
“Over the last 40 years, I have participated in a wide variety of exercises from aerobics to yoga. Three years ago, I discovered GYROTONIC®; it has been the best for giving me increased strength and flexibility, renewed energy, vitality and a general sense of calm and well being. Natalie makes it happen! Five stars!”
- Stephen Doyle, Client
“Natalie was such a pleasure to have in the Level 2 GYROTONIC® Applications For Golf Workshop. She is one of the best
GYROTONIC® instructors I know and one of the first to complete both Level 1 and Level 2 Golf. Natalie has as much experience working with and teaching golfers as anyone. Any golfer who works with her will have a wonderful
opportunity to greatly improve their golf skills.”
- David Rasmussen, GYROTONIC® for Golf
WHY LOTUS FLOW? The lotus flower symbolizes the capacity of the soul to expand and embrace the beauty of life with a clear conscience. The lotus flower sheds its seeds and blooms at the same time.“Flow” is defined as the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by complete absorption in what one does.
