Align and redefine your body through the practice of Pilates and core integration. Through breath, movement and kinesthetic awareness you will strengthen, elongate and tone your muscular, skeletal and circulatory systems. Instructor Anastasia Baratta will guide you through a profound hour of core exercises, stretching and personal attention. Experience the pain reduction and therapeutic techniques that doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists are recommending for spinal, hip, neck and shoulder support.

Anastasia Baratta is passionate about Pilates. She came to the mat 8 years ago when a friend suggested she try it for the low back and hip pain she was experiencing. Her first class was a revelation and as she continued her posture and alignment improved which in turn alleviated the pain. She then decided to teach and received her mat certification at the Kane School in New York City. Currently is enrolled in the BASI equipment training program in LA. In addition, she holds a BA in Education and has a deep understanding of varied teaching techniques. Both the Kane School and BASI have a progressive and contemporary philosophy with a focus on cervical, scapular and pelvic neutrality. Anastasia believes that the best teachers are also perpetual students. Consequently, she is constantly learning new exercises and ways to make her classes varied, inspired and fun.
