Natalie is one of the Tone Grown Pilates teachers! Ever since she could walk, she remembers dancing. It was her first love and it’s something she wants to carry with her through life.
At 18, Natalie started coming to Tone for Zumba. It became a sanctuary for her. Not only was this place somewhere she could move and explore, it is somewhere she is safe. The world can feel so isolating but at Tone, she is always Home.
Natalie went off to the University of California, Santa Cruz to get her Bachelors in Sociology and when she moved back to Santa Rosa – there was a space in her life that needed to be filled. Through the support and guidance of Tone’s wonderful owners and her beloved mentors, Alyson and Monica, she started the Pilates Teacher Training. It was an unexpected but natural progression of life and journey. There is healing through movement and she never wants to lose that.
Pilates for Natalie is healing and restorative. It gives you the strength to focus on what your body can do. She wants to be moving for the rest of her life and she knows this is how.
Natalie now dances with The Vertitude – who’s owner is Monica’s daughter, Sergia. You might see Natalie in the studio behind the front desk, teaching a class, or dancing in 8 inch heels
